        • wunderlist today

          Hello,
          I guess you developers don't use the apps you design. So, you have not identified this obvious problem.
          When reminders are synced with Wunderlist, they have an option to select various lists, but no 'today' filter. What use is it to display reminders on one of the launcher screens, if all tasks throughout the time period are displayed? Can't we show just today's tasks??

                          I have to double tap apps to get them to open. I should only have to single tap.

                          • The launcher uses to much cpu time

                            My samsung S7 reports heavy cpu usage of the launcher. Causes battery drain.

                              • Transition animation gone after latest update

                                When exiting an app it no longer transitions out with an effect, it just flips back to home screen. This doesn't appear to happen when in the Launcher settings. My device is the LG V20 on Oreo.

                                        • Some apps cannot create home screen shortcuts

                                          I use an app called parallel space and it the shortcuts don't appear on the home screen once created.
