  3. 应用抽屉

    希望在应用抽屉界面,长按某一应用图标时增加“添加到文件夹”选项。
    这样可以将后来安装的应用快速添加到应用抽屉中已经建立的文件夹。

  4. why can I not drag apps into folders? instead when I try it always puts them on the home screen. very frustrating

    not sure if it is a fault or design but every time I try to drag an app into a folder it tries to place the app on the home screen. I can't simply add an app to a folder by dragging it into it

  6. Change the size and style of icons displayed in folders

    Currently icons as displayed in folders have only one style and size. We need that to be configurable and change it for example to pixel style or something else. Also the icon size in folders is not configurable and as a result it is disproportionate to the size of other icons which can be configured. please fix.

  7. Folder opening animations

    I would like to see options to change the opening animations of folders to something less "intrusive". I feel that the current animations are a bit slow and the folder's contents take up the entire screen, sometimes making the user move their attention far from the folder's original location. I personally like how Google implemented this feature: a small "window" pops up at the location of the folder. I'd like to see something similar implemented (with an option to choose between full screen folders and pop-up folders)

  9. App folder

    Hi can we please have app folder on bottom of app drawer instead having at top of apps. This looks really annoying and kind of make it hard to use folders for apps.

  10. please make it easier to create a new folder & add apps to it because dragging apps on top of each other is extremely hard

    please add a button or long press to create a new folder which then can add apps to like any other folder
    dragging apps on top of each other is not easy and very frustrating

  11. make folder area not take up whole screen when it's open for the sub items.

    when you open a folder, it takes the entire area of the screen. A better idea is if it only takes a smaller area so that you it's more practical and closer to where you were pointing initially.

  12. Scroll between folders

    Scroll between folders would be awesome!
    When I click on folder that I created I want to scroll left and right to quickly switch and explore other folders.

  14. stop folder from closing

    sometimes inside a folder might be a widget of a kind. one you can click to do things such as switch on lights, turn lights off etc. I put them all in 1 folder to group together. problem is, when I click the button, immediately after the folder closes by itself. it would be great if each folder had an independent option to stay open after child item has been clicked.

  15. change folder icon sizes

    Add the ability to change icon sizes from the folder view. at the moment they are really small and out of proportion to other icon sizes. Lots of empty space in the folder icon.

  16. Change location of icons in open folders

    When a folder on the home screen gets opened, icons are centered on the screen. So I have to move my thumb far upwards to open any app.

    Why not place the icons down near the bottom of the screen in open folders. Something like behavior of oneplus launcher.

  19. Display Homescreen folders as stacks instead of grid

    The Google Now launcher displays app folders as stacks rather than grids. I find this generally more useful, as it allows using an app as iconic symbol for the category, while still making it obvious, that it is a folder and not a single app. Displaying the first four apps side by side is much more cluttered and harder to parse; Instead of looking for an iconic symbol I thus need to read the folder names and/or memorize folder positions.

    Note that this downside compared to the Google launcher is shared with the iOS home screen, where up to 9…
