  2. back from an app pressing the home button Launcher takes 3 seconds like being started for the first time.

    Sometime when I press the home button after resuming the phone or editing from an application the Launcher seem freezer on my Frequently used app page loading the icons and the screen looks empty. After three seconds or so the empty feed appears and finally is filled with with my icons. Looks like app restared every time and reload configuration. In the same time frame you can notice the icon of the GPS capturing the position.

  3. Missing bottom right icon in frequent apps

    I use the frequently used apps page as my home page. However it suddenly is missing the bottom right icon. It's just an empty section. It won't fill it in with any other apps.

  5. Frequently used apps: limited number of items?

    I have a configuration of 6 rows x 4 columns, so I expect to see 24 apps. However recently I've noticed that two of them disappeared, and I only have 22. I've verified that if I manually add an app to that screen, then the 22nd one gets dropped.
    I've searched all over the settings but could not find any option that corresponds to that behavior.
    Help please?
    Thanks.

    ps. I'm on the latest version of the app (4.7.0.41273), and android v7.0.

  8. after clearing recents, launcher repeatedly forces itself back to default home screen even when scrolling over to widgets

    After clearing recent apps, launcher repeatedly forces itself back to default home screen (frequently used apps) even when scrolling over to widgets. It will do this 2-3 times in a 4-5 second period immediate after closing recents. For example, I clear all recents then immediately try to swipe up the dock or left/right to another page; it will force back to default page and/or lower the dock a second or 2 later. It is VERY annoying! Brand new Galaxy S9+ (TMOUS). I suspect this is an Oreo related bug, as it didn't happen on my Note8 running Nougat.

  17. the frequently used apps page when set for 4 columns, 5 rows, only displays 17 apps instead of 20.

    On my Sony Xperia XZ (5.2"), I've set frequently used apps to the full size of the screen, with the exception of the 1 row the dock takes up. It has been set for a 4 column, 5 row configuration. however, it only displays 17 icons, stopping at the 5th row, 1st column. The other 3 spots are simply empty. I've set my icon/font size one step up from default.

    if I change the config to a 4x4, all 16 apps are displayed. but going larger than 4x5, it stops at 17.

    further, any configuration past 5 rows doesn't render,…

  20. frequently used apps

    In the frequently used apps card, when selecting an app, the shadow that is used to highlight the selected app sometimes has the shape of an app other than the one you clicked.
