      • Vertical app drawer, but not alphabetically split

        A vertically listed app drawer with every letter after the other. The way it is now makes my list so much longer than it has to be.

              • When in app drawer, holding on an app icon and then selecting uninstall option brings me back to home screen. It should stay in app drawer.

                uninstalling an app from app drawer shouldn't send the user back to home screen. it should rearrange the apps and keep the user in app drawer.

                • Add an option to show the app drawer labels in single line or double line

                  Well, there have been reviews and experience which shows that our app drawer struggles to decide if the app labels should show up on single line or not due to which the fonts stutter frequently. If u manual control 1 or 2 lines for labels that should fix the issue permanently

                    • App Drawer Vertical with pages

                      it would be awesome if you can make a vertical app drawer but also with horizontal pages, like a page for games and another one for apps. for example

                      • Remove app drawer alphabet search slide animation.

                        When the app drawer is open and a letter is tapped (on the alphabet to the right) there is a slide animation. It takes much too long for the animation to play. I would prefer when a letter is tapped that it instantly takes me to the apps starting with that letter. So in short, remove the animation or make it much quicker.

                        • app index

                          it would be great if the app index letters (on the right edges of the screen when viewing all apps) would span completely from the top to the bottom on the screen. this would help me find the correct letter when I can't see the screen very well due to bright sunlight or when the screen brightens is too low. as it is now, the letters at a seemingly arbitrary place 2/3rds down from the top, and I have to hunt and peck randomly to find the letter I need

                              I wish there is an app lock built in with the launcher.... The one that can still lock when the app is opened in Playstore....

                                It would be great to put the app drawer as a page on the home screen.
                                Thanks to that I would be able to swipe to the right screen to open the app drawer.

                                • Work apps filter

                                  When using android work and two apps for example two whatsapp (1 personal and 1 on work profile) the work apps should be separated from personal apps.. Maybe an option to enable tabs for the app drawer labeled Personal and one labeled Work which filters them accordingly. Kinda like the pixel launcher.

                                  • app search bar inside app drawer can be enhanced to search apps by category. For example, games, shopping, reading etc.

                                    Search bar inside app drawer is unable to list all apps under a category. For example I don't remember app name but I know it's category so I wanted to list apps based on the category name or tag that I type in search bar. i.e. game or shopping or reading etc.

                                      just remove the alphabet on the side of the app drawer, but keep the functionality the same, and fill the space left by the alphabet.

                                      • "Search apps" Should include special characters

                                        I have an app called "Übersetzer"(Translator in German). At the "Search Apps" tab, I expect this app would pop up even if I type "Ubersetzer". This feature would help a lot for users with English keyboard

                                        • 앱서랍

                                          제스쳐를 통해 앱서랍을 들어갈 때, 삼성 기본 런쳐처럼 상단에서 하단으로의 제스쳐도 앱서랍이 되도록 설정을 변경할 수 있는 것은 좋습니다. 하지만 기본 설정처럼 앱서랍이 뜨는 방향은 아래에서 위로 올라오는 것으로 고정되어 있어서 손가락은 위에서 아래로 움직이는데 앱서랍은 반대로 움직이는 것이 조금 이상하게 느껴집니다. 그리고 앱서랍이 뜨는 애니메이션 효과가 삼성 런쳐보다 미세하지만 더 오래 걸리는 것 같습니다. 굳이 부드럽게 움직이는 효과를 오래 지속시키지 않아도 괜찮을 것 같습니다.
