    • Apps often don't launch

      In the last week or so, launcher has changed. I tap an icon, it animates (ie I definitely tapped it) but it doesn't launch. Sometimes it takes 2-3 goes. Also sometimes I don't see it animate. Is there a system setting that could do this? I was experimenting with emergency mode, and wonder if that broke something. Thanks.

        • Adding app in folder just copies it

          When you add an app in a folder it just copies it and it doesn't move it there even with the settings set to move, interestingly enough if you make a new folder with the selected apps it moves them to the new folder.

                • App drawer scroll top

                  When in the app drawer if I scroll all the way to the top of the app drawer I am not able to scroll back down. In order to scroll back down I need to remove my finger from the screen and then scroll down. Please fix so I do not need to remove finger from screen.

                  • Letters alfabet order

                    Letters on time right side of drawer doesn't correspond with names of apps. Sometimes restart of launcher helps but always only for a while.

                      • indicator

                        App drawer is set to vertical grid layout. when clicking on a-z slide bar(such as m), the drawer is scrolled to correct position,but the slide bar doesn't update its highlight range.

                        • dock

                          Dock swipe-up issue; when I swipe up fast, it will open one of the apps that my finger was in the range of at the end of the gesture. if im careful and hold the gesture for abit more at the end, its ok. Im on android 5. its abit hard to explain but i hope u got the hang of it. I love this launcher, its just great overall!

                          • App drawer scroll is buggy on Samsung Galaxy S7

                            The alphabetical scroll bar broke after the update about one month ago. The letters chosen don't always match the apps shown. Tapping on the alphabetical scroll bar doesn't scroll properly to the correct letter. Oddly, not all the letters are shown meaning that the alphabetical scroll bar itself needs scrolling. before the update, this alphabetical scrollbar was very accurate.

                            Device: Samsung Galaxy S7

                                • double icon

                                  hi

                                  I have a Samsung S9. the launcher sometimes displays double icons for certain apps that i have put into the "secure folder" that Samsung phones have. eg the play store, where one icon will be for the normal store, and the other icon is the clone play store which is secured in the secure folder (if that makes sense?)

                                  normally they're hidden, and a restart clears them away until next time.....

                                  thanks

                                    • The default Android Messages App's icon always presents the number of blocked or spam messages, which doesn't happen on Android launcher.

                                      In Microsoft launcher, the number of new (unread) messages will appear above the icon of Android Messages app, but this won't work properly, it counts spam anf blocked messages.
                                      In the Android default launcher, this issues does not exist.

                                      • app drawer doesn't open on swipe up of dock

                                        open app drawer is assigned to the swipe up from dock gesture, if I swipe up I get a blank screen that looks like the app drawer with nothing to all there. other gestures (double tap) works for opening app drawer, and if I use double tap then close it, then swipe up, sometimes it works.

                                        • Index on app launcher no longer fits on single page.

                                          The index on the right side of the app drawer used to run from A-# but after a recent update it goes from A-W and moves as I scroll through my apps, so X-# appear only as I scroll down. this makes its value as a quick shortcut to my apps much less usable.

                                          Is this a bug? Is there a setting that can be changed to force it to fit that index on a single screen?

                                          The issue is appearing on a Galaxy S9.
