  1. 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.

          • Notifications when pressing and holding apps

            When I long press on an app, I want to be able to see the notifications from this app. Plus, the press and hold additional actions menu is terrible and is sluggish on this launcher. Please fix it and add this feature.

            • I love your gestures for double tap to lock screen. Try adding double tap to wake screen, it would make it very professional.

              It's a humble request from me, It would make users love the launcher even more. Also consider adding lock screen gestures to play music and stuff like that

              • suggest a gesture Whereby you double tap to hide your home screen icons and double tap to view also you can add exception for icons you don'

                I would suggest a gesture Whereby you double tap to hide your home screen icons and double tap to view also you can add exception for icons you don't want to hide. For instance once I press the home button, it takes me to my default homepage but on the homepage it's empty(except the icons I choose to lock on home screen) . I have to make a gesture to view my home screen icons.

                • Enable full notification list dropdown with one swipe while having an open app.

                  When I have the gallery or instagram open for example, I'd like to swipe down for the notification panel to drop down fully instead of the first row of icons. This enables me to reach the icons easily because I don't have 5inch long thumbs to reach the top icons and use my phone with only one hand.

                  • Ao ocultar a barra de status e cofigurar um gesto para espandir as notificações o tempo de resposta é lento

                    deve-se melhorar o tempo de resposta dos gestos quando a barra de notificações está oculta e configura um gesto para expandi-la

                    • Visual feedback when Icon is swiped.

                      Currently, when you swipe up on an app, there is no indication that the swipe action was registered or if the app will launch. There should be an indication / animation showing that the swipe was registered.

                        • Customise Gestures

                          Many applications and launchers now provide customisation of Gestures to do certain functions. Please add more customisations on this Launcher. One example would be a Swipe left on the home button to activate the "back" function rather than pressing the back button. More customisations of Gestures would create better usability of the Launcher and phone.

                                    I would like to be able to tap the background twice or something without anything popping up or the screen going black. I have some backgrounds that you can interact with by tapping on them. I would like to be able to interact with then uninterrupted.

                                      I would love to be able to re-enable the old 3 button navigation bar buttons. currently the only way to do it on the Pixel 3 is to the Android debug bridge.

                                      • 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.

                                        • swipe up

                                          Please add the ability to add an app or shortcut to the gesture "swipe up from dock". Currently the ability to add an app for that gesture seems to be blank under apps. I tried setting my favourite app to the "swipe up" gesture however there isn't enough room on my main page for this to work properly :)
