  1. Tasks have all disappeared from the task widget

    Updated to the beta of 5.1, and my task list is now empty. As I only started using the list in 5.0, I don't know where it was saving the tasks to, so I don't know where to look to see if they have been deleted or are just no longer picked up by the widget.

  2. Widgets disappear from home screen

    Widgets dissappear after random events (lick/unlock; going home from an app; going to settings...).
    I need to add the same widget once, than remove it, than add it once again and all the widgets reappear. This was an issue in the past. I reported it. It got fixed. Now it's happening again. It doesn't matter if I lock the home screen or not.

  5. After update, removing padding does not make widgets full-width

    Removing padding used to make widgets span to each side of the screen. After today's update there remains a margin.

  6. 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.

  7. Widget resizing handles misaligned

    On Nokia 8, the widget resizing handles are misaligned. They are higher on the screen than they should, not lining up with the widget that is being resized.

  13. Favourite contacts card continues to 'forget' the favourite contacts I add to it.

    I add five contacts to the favourite contacts card. But today only one is listed so the card has forgotten what's been added to it again. I've reported this previously but it's still a problem on the latest update.

  19. task page. when adding a task the keyboard covers the text input box.

    create a task page. when you tap to add a new task the keyboard covers the input field, so you can't see what you are typing.

  20. Samsung calendar widget doesn't appear on home screen

    Samsung calendar widget doesn't appear on homescreen, it's very similar to the stock Google. it have the option to turn on and regulate transparency (very handy to match wallpaper).
    Microsoft launcher create a blank widget, in fact I can hold on screen to see the perimeter of it, but it can't be resized and it rest empty.
    so the only thing I can do is to re-hold it and delete it.
