          • notification badge

            Noticing a 1 badge on my Instagram app even though I have no unread items in Instagram. I have tried restarting my phone, restarting Microsoft launcher, clearing data and cache on badgeProvider and instagram but to no avail. Ms laucher should either handle notifications better or provide user with the ability to clear badges for an app.

                      • freeze and crashing

                        Newest update freezes every 2 minutes or so. It will freeze and then crash and ask me to restart it. I have had to revert back to stock launcher (which is awful) in the mean time. I can't even swipe through different panels. It's completely stuck. I was just barely able to get this open. 😔
