                • Remove nag screen

                  On my kids phones, I have installed a parental control application (parentsdanslesparages). To operate this app runs as the launcher and then starts another launcher. If I choose Microsoft Launcher, then there is always a screen asking to setup Ms Launcher as the default launcher.
                  So 2 options:
                  1. Remove nag screen
                  2. Integrate a full parental control within MS Launcher

                  Meanwhile I will have to use the default launcher on these mobiles.

                  Regards,
                  Jean-François

                          • Could not update to latest version without uninstalling the old version first.

                            After multiple tries trying to update to the latest version via a notification popping up on my home screen every time I went there, I eventually had to uninstall my current version in order to get the new version to install. The install would fail every time I tried to install it.

                            • not as default

                              after restarting my phone, the default settings returned to the phone's original launcher, not this launcher. even though I already set this launcher as default, but after restarting it returns to the original one.

                              pls fix this. honestly, I love this launchers user interface.aka
                              thanks you.

                              • Brightness setting

                                Brightness is set to automatic, but this launcher always set it to manual after wake from standby. No such issue before using this launcher.

                                  • Randomly added screens on the bottom

                                    When having only a blank home screen with no other screens either down or to the right, a blank screen will be added randomly at the bottom. Easiest to see when using gesture control where swiping up on the home screen brings up the app list. When the issue occurs, you need to swipe up twice, once on the home screen then again on the blank screen before opening apps list. Blank screen is easily deleted but it keeps appearing.
