  2. Pop-up view doesn't work.

    The pop-up view where I slide my finger diagonally from either top corner of the screen no longer works on my S7 edge.
    It just brings my notification bar down...

  10. Change lock behaviour

    How do i change the lock behaviour on double tap so that I can unlock using biometrics, currently it is set to require my pin code and I can't find the setting to change this behaviour.

  11. No notification after gesture

    So when I use the gesture feature to open my text messaging app, the app works fine, but then I stop getting notifications from the app. It's very irritating. I'm going back to my old launcher and will come back once this is fixed. This is extremely irritating

  14. Pinching

    Hi, previously when pinching the screen I could change the size of the home screen icons. That's not happening now. Has this feature been disabled in the new update?

  20. Apps opened using Microsoft Launcher Gestures does not show in Recent Apps. Becomes difficult to switch or clear them.

    when an app is opened using Gesture, it does not show up in Recent Apps.
    Nither I'm using frequent apps wigdet nor the app added to dock.

    this makes difficult to switch between apps and/or clearing them.
