    • notification badge/count colour

      Since we all use some kind of icon pack (I use lines free for example) there should be an option to at least make them translucent or change the badge/coutn number to fit the icon pack

      • Current notification dots are terrible. Need to have colors match the app icon and you should be able to adjust size. They are way to small

        It should be done like stock Android. I prefer dots to badges as do many others. The size is way too small to notice that there is a notification. Also having the dots match the icon color.

        • Bigger dot badge

          Helli, thanks for making the launcher better and better. I would like to see bigger badge dots, optionally adjustable sized ones.

              • Text messages notification badge should be reset when the messages app is opened without having to open and read the specific message

                The notification badge needs to reset as soon as you open the messages app without needing to read the specific message

                    Sobre o ícone de notificação nos aplicativos, teria como colocar um ajuste de tamanho, entre pequeno, médio e grande!? acho muito pequeno.

                    • 负一屏最上面的缩放建议关闭……上下滑动很难受

                      最上方的区域不要缩放…固定大小…不然上下滑动感觉很不流畅,虽然实际上没有,尤其是上下滑动列表很短的时候

                            Implement the notification badges with those present in Oreo (more colorful, depending on the color of the APP)

                                    instead of there being just a red (universal color) dot, have the notification badges the color of the app icon, or something similar that will compliment the icon

                                    • Email notification badge should reset when the app is opened at least with the outlook app

                                      The email notification badge should reset when the app is opened as in windows. The count should be for new emails not unread emails. If this is not possible with third party apps it should at least be done with the outlook app as it is in windows.

                                      • Some notification dots are permanent. Please add a button for each app that removes the current notification dot, until a new one arrives.

                                        When you hold down on an app, it currently opens a few options for that app, please add an option the deletes the notification dot until a future notification for that app arrives.
