  5. gestures should work on the frequently used apps screen. I use the frequently used apps screen as my homepage, but gestures dont work there.

    I would expect pinch and other gestures to work on the frequently used apps page just like they work on all of the other pages.

  6. Recent

    There is a gap on the frequent apps page when title bars and search bar are disabled. Wastes real estate.

  7. add frequently used apps card's transparency option

    I use the frequently used apps card more than the app drawer to launch apps. I pined that card to another page for it's use. it's background is just white! That looks a bit outdated! if It has a transparency option or add an image behind the transparency option.., I'd look nice. :D

  9. App icons available in the dock should not be visible in the frequently used apps list as they are already fixed to the bottom

    When something is already fixed to the bottom of every screen, I don't see any use of having it in the frequently used apps list as well. Moreover, given that only 8 apps appear in the feed page, its important to have apps other than those already present in the dock.

  10. Feed icon size should be customizable

    When you select icon size for the home screen and dock, there should be an option to use the same size for frequent apps in the feed. Or, it should do this automatically. It does use the right size when you expand it.

  12. 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.

  13. Allow hiding off apps from Frequently Used (drop-down from status bar)

    When you drag down from the status bar, you get a small list (about 6-8) of Frequently used apps.

    Allow hiding of apps
    Allow completely disabling this information

  15. please fix the airplane mode button to just turn it on or off instead of taking you to the connections screen to do the same thing.

    when you swipe up from the bottom it gives you a few options o e being airplane mode. when you toggle airplane mode from here it takes you to the connections window to turn it on or off. I'm suggesting you make it skip the connections window and just turn it ok on/off. should be a quick fix! thanks!

  16. Option for frequently used apps to exclude those pinned in the home screen

    As it is now the list is useless to me, since it ends up being a list identical to my home screen.

    What I would love to see is the apps I frequently use that are not anyway pinned to my home screen. Now that could be truly useful, since right now I have to go search then alphabetically.

  17. l would like to arrange my own home screen icons

    I am accustomed to having my home screen etc. set up the way "I" want it and have for years. It is "my" phone. It seems like little by little our "rights and privacy" are being taken away.

  20. Don't keep moving my most frequently used apps!

    Please replace least recently used apps in place, and allow the most frequently used apps to remain in the same spot.

    I like this launcher because I don't have to spend time laying out the perfect home screen, but the down-side is that I'm forever hunting for an icon.

    Bonus points if I can swap icons around manually, for those hard to reach cases.
