    • Swiping right for the feed isn't smooth.

      Swiping right for feed isn't smooth, it stutters. I got a fairly powerful device and it has no stutters elsewhere, so clearly a launcher issue.

              • Title text "Backup and Restore" is shown twice

                It seems that the title text "Create backup and restore" is shown twice. They are put in the exact same spot, but with a 1-2 pixel(s) difference. This looks ugly. Please fix it.

                • Launcher crash

                  The launcher crashes suddenly and doesn't start up at all. Due to that I cannot access anything on the phone. I have to either restart the phone or use voice commands to go to settings and force stop the app. It works fine after the force stop.

                  • "Editing app icons": "Swipe Action>Apps" isn't working. There's 3 tabs when editing icons>Swipe Action: ¹Microsoft Gestures ²Apps ³Shortcuts

                    (I'm speaking of Editing icons where you can change the name, & assign what you want it to do when you swipe on the icon, not tap). It has a list of Microsoft gestures, such as expanding quick settings, or open first item in folder; then it has a list of Apps (all apps in your phone), then it has a list of all Shortcuts (aka widgets) in your phone. when I try to assign the swipe action to open an app I click on the apps tab and when it tries to load the list of all the apps…

                    • When typing into any text boxes it's all screwed up. Doesn't capitalize first word of sentence, won't bring up the keyboard when clicking in

                      text box, won't let me select all when in text box unless I click on it 5 times and push select 5 times until it registers.

                      Microsoft Word is the same way. It'll put 2 words together when I've clearly pushed spacebar, or change the letter of a word when I clearly typed a different one. It's just a mess. Fix typing in all of your Microsoft apps, mainly launcher and Word. Jesus.

                      • This launcher is so buggy I can't stand it anymore. You think Samsung would sell a phone that crashed every time you open an app or click on

                        notifications?! It's disgusting. Fix the motherfucker and read the feedback so you know what to fix. Imbeciles. And yes I'm a long time paying customer of Microsoft, every year for 7 years. I don't care about the money, I care that you are an embarrassment of a brand to be using, and that I need this launcher to WORK. I don't care about features anymore, just need it to work and not crash and not load so freaking slow like I'm in the 80s.

                        The launcher crashes and goes back to a blank homescreen 5 times a day, taking way…

                        • animations

                          There's no animation when going back to the home screen. For example, I'm in the Settings ang when I tap the home button, it just goes back to the home screen. No animations whatsoever.

                            System UI is not responding and failing frequently forcing me to reboot the phone all the time. sometimes while unlocking it is setting itself in a loop of locking and unlocking.

                                    • Sometimes I wake up the phone/dump out from app, launcher only shows bg image with no icons/panels for 10-15 secs. Then it reloads itself.

                                      For the last few updates, on occasion when I wake up the phone or drop out of an app, the home screen will only show the background image with no icons or panels. After a few seconds, the launcher seems to refresh itself then the rest of the icons/panels load in.
