  1. Implement another mode of the initial screen

    Hello. I suggest you implement another mode of the initial screen. All applications would be displayed on it (as in iOS or MIUI). Without the application container.

  4. Make it easier to remove apps. Currently a two step process, should be one.

    Hold on app, either remove option presented, or drag app to top trash to remove.

  10. Close hidden app when screen is locked/off

    hi,

    when an app is set to be hidden, can you add a feature where it gets closed immediately when user lock/off their phone's screen? so when they unlock the phone, the app is gone/closed especially if it was on the foreground when the screen became off.

  12. App lock

    Along with the option to hide apps, there should be an option to lock apps. Many launchers nowadays giving this feature. We too feel the need of it to get rid of any other third party app to lock apps.

  15. It would be great to have a gesture to get to your hidden apps

    Pretty much it, enable a vault with your hidden apps and pics, vids, etc... through a gesture locked with touch/face ID, pin or password

  16. finger print lock for hidden apps

    Hi Team,
    Its better if we have finger print lock for hidden apps instead of using 4 digit pin.
    people beside will see the pin and they might misuse.
