    • Notification bubbles are blue instead of red in latest build, no setting to change

      Latest build from hockey has changed all the notification count bubbles to blue. They used to be red. I couldn't find a setting to switch them back.

          • Notification badge color

            Notification badge color in latest update has changed to blue. Unfortunately this conflicts with many app icons such as Outlook, facebook, twitter, etc. Please give option to select badge color.

                    • Notification dot color

                      The new 5.3 blue dot does not stand out when overlayed on the majority of app icons and backgrounds.

                            • Outlook badge not working

                              Outlook notification badges don't work anymore. Before they showed up, but you needed to open the app twice to get rid of it. Now it doesn't show up anymore. Outlook is not available to select under notification badge settings.

                              • Cortana

                                don't like this launcher Force to choose Google now or Cortana to be the only one assistant! the message and phone contact is most important, is always have to show the notification icon. (if not choose Cortana for assistant, SMS messages and phone will not show notification icon!) WHY! don't do that! this launcher is good, but the Cortana by now is not good enough! you will lost alot of user! thank you.

                                        • for samsung note 8, the notifications don't vibrate anymore (can only play sound)

                                          after the latest Launcher update, all notifications can only play sound but not vibrate. This also happens for incoming calls, anything that has to do with vibration is broken and does not work (have eliminated all possibilities and boiled down to this). Any help?
