  1. Homescreen folders app icons too small

    On home screen, app icon sizes in folders are tiny. Settings preview is normal size (which is ideal)

    • App drawer closes randomly since last update

      When opening folders or drawers the screen resets and you have to scroll back down to where you were at.

            • Folder icons bottom

              Folder icons appear at the top of the folder. That's super uncomfortable. They should appear at the bottom of the folder instead. Starting at bottom right corner for right-handed people and bottom left for left-handed people.

                  • folder icons

                    APP ICONS BLURRED..

                    FIRST LINE of app icons inside a folder is BLURRED. . Always the first line, inside all the folders, even if icons are swapped..
                    The margins of the icons and any other drawings inside appear blurred..

                    It's not a problem with the icon pack, since its solved and appear full resolution if I place it on home or in any other rows..

                                • Home icons/folders, not easy to organize.

                                  Every time I try to organize the icons and/or the folders on the home screen, the home screen becomes a mess. This task is not as smooth as it is with the stock launcher.

                                    • Folders showing apps I don't have installed.

                                      I uninstalled some apps but when you look at the folder they were in you can still see the app icons. When you open the folder the apps are not there. Looks like the folder view doesn't refresh.
