          • huawei gesture navigation issues

            On new huawei devices such as the mate 20 pro, the system wide gesture navigation is not smooth. especially the swipe up to go home and the swipe and hold for recent apps.

                    • Launcher tasks not syncing with Microsoft To-Do

                      Basically as title.

                      When I press the refresh button it does nothing. I have 5 tasks on my account but only four show up in the launcher feed, and when I expand the launchers view. Works fine in the To Do app.

                      • Laggy animations

                        Animations like swiping pages on home screen, swiping up the dock and scrolling through app drawer every animation looks a bit laggy. It doesn't feel snappier like my default Pixel launcher. The lag in animations is very noticeable and occurs all the time.

                          • Timeline not syncing

                            I have activated the Timeline Sync feature, it works great on my Galaxy Note 9 (the first device I activated the feature on), but it doesn't work on my Galaxy S8 neither on my Galaxy Tab S3, both launchers updated after the one on the Note.. the timeline tab is there but there's no data pulled up.

                            • Sticky Notes on Feed

                              Every time the Launcher updates I have to remove the Sticky Notes widget from the Feed. I don't want it on the Feed. I have it on a separate page. Not terribly serious but a nuisance. Thanks
