  1. showing both icons of a twin-app on Huawei(dualsim) not supported

    I'm using the twin-app functions on a Huawei nova dualsim, which means I've 2 whatsapp apps on my phone, both have the same icon and name, one showing a small 'copy' logo on the icon. Using the launcher only the original app is shown and I can't find a way to open the twin-whatsapp as the icon is nowhere to be found.

            • Long press quick jump menus don't show up

              When long-pressing an app icon, it should show the app's shortcut list in addition to current items. Other launchers do this. For example, when right-clicking Outlook icon, it should have the New Email and New Appointment shortcuts. Another example, long-pressing Google Play Store should show 'My apps' shortcut.

                                  I love vertical scrolling, but I still want multiple pages please! In my case, I want a page with a full-size widget AND a separate screen with my apps.
