      • Task page doesn't list all Wunderlist-lists. Actually the "today" list would be very helpful

        I connected the task list with Wunderlist. There I've a lot of list within several folders. How ever, many of them are in the drop down available, but not all. That wouldn't be a great issue, but for the most important one - "today" - is missing.

            • HIDDEN APPS

              I still want to use the apps that were hidden. Its like your hidden apps feature freezes the app and cannot be use unless unhide it. Please make it usable even when it is hidden.

                  • alphabetical scroll in apps page breaking.

                    when an app is installed in the background and the apps page is shown, the alphabetical scroll bar loses some letters randomly.

                      • Sometimes there's an empty page in the Apps screen

                        Often the Apps screen will allow me to scroll down to another empty page. Rearranging the app icons in the first page temporarily solves the problem, but it comes back often.

                        • No notification badge if apps only have 1 notification pending

                          No notification badge is displayed if the app only has 1 notification pending. For example, if I only have one unread email there's no badge in the app icon, if I do get another email I'll see a notification badge with the count of 2. Same happens for other apps, like Messenger, I only get badges for notifications counts above 1.

                            • Facebook messenger group chat

                              On the Recent tab, a new entry is created for each reply in a group chat on Facebook messenger. Ideally all replies in a single group would go under the same entry. It seems to create a new entry when a new person replies, which is why chats with a single person work OK.

                                        • Display size android n

                                          Bottom drawer icons are not rescaled (and cut off at the bottom) when decreasing display size on Android N. (this is on a Nexus 6p.)
