  1. double tap to lock screen AND unlockable with fingerprint

    Double tap to lock is a nice feature as it is convenient. Dont see why unlocking the device has to bring about such inconvenience if we cant use our fingerprint to unlock the device but have to type our admin password.

    • screenshot gesture

      A Screen shot gesture would be awesome and am sure everyone would love it and will make our app better.

      • Manage media/app sound

        There is no control to manage the media/app sound. It will be really great to manage it on gestures.

        • Swipe down on home to bring down notifications.

          Samsung have it implemented and it's so useful, especially if you have a large device.

          A single swipe down on the home page brings down the notifications menu from the top as if you dragged a finger down from the top of the screen.

            • Update timeline UI location

              I turned off timeline because I always accidentally gestured/swiped over to the timeline page when I really wanted to go back to my home screen. Accessing timeline is a quick right to left swipe while going to the home page is a *harder* right to left swipe. I can swipe right to left on the top bar and always get home but I find it difficult to reach up that far while holding my phone one handed.

                      • Swipe fingers gesture for capture screenshot, should be very helpful..

                        Sometimes it is very different on some devices like LG G7, to take screenshot of an important message/screen. I highly appreciate if you provide this feature in gestures.
                        Thanks

                          • Add alphabetical or custom gesture system.

                            Please add more gesture options, so we can access apps more faster, also it acting as a security.

                                  • swipe up animation full screen gesture

                                    theres more and more phone using full screen gesture for opening recent apps like swiping up from bottom from home menu. please add animation like the home screen fade out(like in miui) so the full screen gesture looks nice.

                                      • search

                                        Make the swipe down search transition faster and more fluid to use. I like the way Evie Launcher does it, but Microsoft Launcher ticks more boxes elsewhere.
