  1. Quick Apps launcher

    Please add Quick Apps launcher wherein I can add apps that I use frequently. This will help me access Apps directly without having to use the apps drawer. This quick apps launcher can be added to the home screen, and will contain more than one preferred app. For example one quick Apps launcher will contain 5 apps that I use frequently. This will also avoid clustering the home screen with more individual apps.

  3. Give me a phone that doesn't go thru Google /android servers. Loved my 1520 Nokia.

    MS Launcher should redirect to Microsoft servers but not going thru Android servers. Or any method available to avoid Google platforms.

  5. Reset frequency used app.

    I want feature to reset frequently used app. As with many days of use, if we install new app that I am going to use often, it will take number of days and click to show new app in the list. It will force me to use app drawer for those app.
    If I can reset app list. It can show up much quickly.

  7. carte temps d'écran moins basique

    Merci d'avoir introduit la fonctionnalité temps d'écran, mais...
    Pourriez-vous ajouter un menu contenant pour commencer :
    - exceptions: les applis qu'on ne veut pas mesurer, genre suivit du sommeil... ou choix des applis à mesurer
    - notifications: pouvoir fixer une durée par appli et alerter quand on l'atteint
    - graphiques: global ou par appli, pour voir si on s'améliore (semaine, mois...)
    Il y en a plein d'autres, mais ce serait déjà un bon début 😊
    Cordialement,

  9. Allow Progressive Web Apps (Pwas) to appear in the frequently used apps page

    When a pwa is used by a browser multiple times it automatically pops up in the page, at the very least enable this for edge

  10. Add a Launcher Settings option to remove Suggested Apps from the Bing Search screen

    Add a Launcher Settings option to remove Suggested Apps from the Bing Search screen when you pull it down with a gesture. I'd like the option to see all of my latest Bing Search results populate the whole page. The Suggested Apps are unnecessary clutter for me, and the option to shut the Suggested Apps portion off would be more helpful.

  11. Frequently used apps integrated with app drawer

    They should work as one, the extended panel should just be the app drawer. When you tap "more" (or the last item, a drawer icon), I would like to get the list of all the apps not just the used ones. You would get one consistent list of apps insteed of two separated areas.

  12. It will be nice to be able to exclude some apps from Screen time count. My alarm clock is opened all the night and it's counted on screen tm

    It will be nice to be able to exclude some apps from Screen time count. My alarm clock is opened all the night (to can see the time on the black screen without touching the phone) and it's counted on screen time, but I'm not really using the phone.

  15. to set whatsapp as default sms application.

    I see it should be very useful. Most people use whatsapp rather than the default sms app.

  16. Allow hiding apps in suggested apps

    Some apps turn up in my suggested apps that I don't want there. I want to long press that app icon and be able to choose “don't show in suggested apps“. I want to use this function and not have to rely on hiding apps from the system altogether.

  20. Most used apps widget

    There should be a widget (2x4) maybe, which can be added to home screen and that widget should have 2 modes home and out, the widget should have apps that are most used in those locations.
    When you walk out of the home and the Wi-Fi is disconnected it should have apps which you use on the go like maps, WhatsApp or any other app related to on the go profile.
    When at home it would show the apps most used at home.
    Much like HTC sense had back in the day.
