  1. Apps won't start from "Frequently used apps"

    Launching an app from the frequently used apps page leads to the home screen, i.e. the app is not starting as expected.
    From the app drawer and home screen everything works normally.

  7. app icons recess/disappear after wireless charging

    my apps page end up missing 2 rows of apps after I overnight charge my phone on a wireless charger. if I charge on a plug it, sometimes 1 row disappears. I either have to restart my phone or change the screen resolution to fix it.

  8. Overview mode messes up frequently used apps page when the page header is hidden

    The overview mode makes the frequently used apps page show only the apps that fit in the smaller boundaries of overview mode. When you exit overview mode, they stay gone.

    This only seems to happen if the page header is hidden. Restarting the launcher fixes the issue.

  12. Frequently used apps space wasted

    On my device, I have the frequently used apps section pinned to its own screen. On it, there is a large blank space between the icons and the drawer section. This space could be occupied by the icons adding some more vertical space between them.

  19. quick search

    The layout of the quick search feature in the launcher (where the frequently used apps are displayed) needs to be optimised. Currently the search suggestions take up all the space on the screen when the keyboard is visible. This allows no space for the Apps (search results) to be visible with the keyboard. To get to the App Search Results the keyboard needs to be retracted everytime - this is very inconvenient.
