  2. Make clock icon interactive like the calendar icon.

    It would be great if the clock app icon showed the current time.

  4. Icon Pack Search

    I should be able to search a 3rd party icon pack and choose icons. That is what is normal and on all launchers out there. How can this be missed? Bit of a let down that this basic feature is missing.

  5. Any chance of a Metro style launcher? really miss the simplicity and customization

    The metro style that windows phone's used to have was great, really simple, everything important at hand, and easily customizable, the live tiles were way better than anything that you can get now. i even tried some launchers that try to emulate that and they fail big time

  9. when you change a single icon and want it to adapt to a new icon pack every time.. this needs a toggle

    when you change an icon say I changed it for calendar to a different icon pack there is no way of making it so that the next time u change the default icon pack.. the custom icon changes with it... so there needs to be an icon pack reset button or something in the launcher settings menu for resetting the icons into the default icon pack

  10. An option to change the fill of 'same shaped' app icons to white or black instead of an averaged out colour of the colours in the app icon.

    It's useful as it adds consistency to the app experience. Often some icons are difficult to see be because of their fill. (Eg- Google photos has a blue background). You may also get the white backgrounds turning to black inside dark mode. It's subtle, but sensible.

  13. Would like to have a page above, below and right of home page w/ account info still to the left, instead of scrolling through all the pages.

    I currently have multiple pages setup for widgets that I need through out the day and my main screen has the short cuts but I'm just needing to glance at the info instead of logging in and scrolling through the page's is a pain. Thought it would be really convenient to be able to have pages around the home screen- top, right, bottom and left and would allow faster access to the page's.
