  5. swipe gesture interpreted as a tap and hold

    swiping down or up on the home screen is often incorrectly interpreted as a tap and hold. Please allow changing the tap and hold gesture so that it does nothing, or increase the time threshold for the hold so that it doesn't get triggered accidentally if the phone lags or something. This happens to me several times a day. Thanks!

  6. double tap to sleep problem

    Hi. In android 11 with one ui 3 (samsung s20 plus), you can activate the double tap function to sleep (not say lock). When using Microsoft launcher this gesture does not work, it is not in Microsoft launcher gesture list. Can you introduce it? it would be great to keep using Microsoft launcher. Thanks!

  8. Navigation bar on Motorola G9

    I have just updated from the Motorola G7 Play to the G9 Play.
    On the G7 the navigation worked brilliantly.
    On the G9 it works on the Moto launcher but on the Microsoft Launcher it has just one function - the upward swipe reduces the app to its icon. It seems that app is not closed but just minimised.
    Is this a known problem?

  9. Doesn't support EMUI 11 Single Hand Mode Gesture

    When I use MS launcher on Mate 40 Pro, the Single Hand Mode Gesture is not working on EMUI 11, and it is working with default Huawei Launcher. EMUI 10 single hand mode gesture is different and working on MS launcher.

  11. Latest update stops recent apps gesture (swipe upp from bottom right of screen) from working from home screen. Still works in apps.

    Latest app version breaks phone gestures such as recent apps (swipe up from bottom right) on the home screen. If I action that gesture from an app it works, but doing a close all now makes the phone go back to the phones default launcher, not Microsoft launcher.

  14. App history/switching between recent apps from homescreen doesn't work

    when I'm on homescreen and swipe on the bottom edge to switch between recent apps, the homescreen icons stay on the screen and I see the other apps in the background, but it jumps back to homescreen. It works when I'm in another app or when I go to the opened apps overview by swiping up and holding. Android 10/Oxygen OS 10.0.5.9

  18. swipe up gesture for opening the dock: no animation

    When swipe up gesture is set to open the dock, no animation is shown (the dock just pops open when releasing the swipe at some point). This is unlike the swipe up gesture for opening the app drawer, which is accompanied by a smooth sliding animation.

  19. Lock screen not working

    I set launcher to lock screen on double tap, but it always keeps asking for the accessibility permission even though I already gave it said permission.
