            • bing logo

              I have Bing wallpaper. The Bing logo in bottom left doesn't fade out when I'm slowly swiping from bottom to open All Apps. The logo is at the top and disappears when apps drawer is completely shown.

                • swipe icon

                  When you edit a dock icon and bind an app to the swipe gesture of that dock icon, often the app opened via the swipe gesture does not appear in the list of recent apps / overview screen.

                              I chose swipe up on screen to expand the dock. When I do this the dock doesn't expand entirely. The second set of apps that I've placed in the dock are not visible when I expand the dock.

                                Swipping the home drawer page to the left or to the right keeps displaying the search feature in a blank page sometimes while there is no such settings in the launcher gestures options.

                                  • Taps are misinterpreted as micro swipes, so I'm constant tapping an icon on my home screen twice or more.

                                    On my home screen, with vertical shipping gestures off, when I tap on an icon or folder with a slight movement, I expect that to register as a tap, but nothing actually happens. I suspect these actions are being interpreted as micro swipes. Either way, I have to tap multiple times and wonder if my phone is slow or whether I tapped "correctly." Frustrating experience has single-handedly forced me back to Google's launcher.

                                      gestures and swiping on icon features are useless because apps doesn't stay in recents if opened by using gestures, fix this.
