                          • Better organization for app folders in the app drawer

                            When you create app folders in the app drawer, the folders should arrange alphabetically and/or have the option to arrange by most to least recently used.

                            • Missing apps from recent

                              After an update, the last app in my Frequently Used Apps list disappeared. The last still updates, but one spot isn't used. A few days later, a second spot went empty.

                                  • back from an app pressing the home button Launcher takes 3 seconds like being started for the first time.

                                    Sometime when I press the home button after resuming the phone or editing from an application the Launcher seem freezer on my Frequently used app page loading the icons and the screen looks empty. After three seconds or so the empty feed appears and finally is filled with with my icons. Looks like app restared every time and reload configuration. In the same time frame you can notice the icon of the GPS capturing the position.

                                    • Missing bottom right icon in frequent apps

                                      I use the frequently used apps page as my home page. However it suddenly is missing the bottom right icon. It's just an empty section. It won't fill it in with any other apps.

                                        • Frequently used apps: limited number of items?

                                          I have a configuration of 6 rows x 4 columns, so I expect to see 24 apps. However recently I've noticed that two of them disappeared, and I only have 22. I've verified that if I manually add an app to that screen, then the 22nd one gets dropped.
                                          I've searched all over the settings but could not find any option that corresponds to that behavior.
                                          Help please?
                                          Thanks.

                                          ps. I'm on the latest version of the app (4.7.0.41273), and android v7.0.
