    • The animation when opening the app drawer is bad. Use one that follows your finger like the Galaxy S8 & 9 homescreen. They are so smooth

      • Secure Folder apps not hidden

        Hi, I've bee using Microsoft Launcher for a while on my Galaxy S7 Edge. Now I'm on S9+ and something changed. Not sure if it's because the Android version difference or it just coincide with the Launcher's update.

        But on my S9+ apps from my Secure Folder now appear on the Launcher's App Drawer, alongside their original duplicates. And when I try to hide one of them their original counterpart disappear too. This shouldn't be an expected behavior.

        For some people it may be good to have some Secure Folder apps in the main Drawer. It should have an option…

          • Contacts are not in the app drawer and cannot be added.

            I cannot add contacts to the app drawer. I want them right next to the phone.

                  • Swipe up for app drawer from the dock problem.

                    Swipe up dock animation is too fast and doesn't follow your finger when swiping from an icon inside the dock unlike when swiping from an empty space in the dock.

                                • cancel dragging app

                                  If I accidentally drag an app out of the app drawer (by long-pressing into a drag that starts adding an app to a home screen), there is nowhere on the screen that I can let my finger up to cancel that action. There needs to be a "dead zone" to cancel that action.

                                      • Color of bottom navigation bar in drawer search

                                        The bottom navigation bar shoud become white or black when opening the serch in the app drawer, like it happens when opening the search view scrolling from the top in the start page. Right now it remains transparent, not being consistent with any of the android keyboards, shoud be an easy fix, thanks.

                                        • WHEN EXITING APP DRAWER, DOCK FLASHES, looks unfinished

                                          Dock flashes when exiting the app drawer, making it look unfinished.
