    • Add the option to sort alphabetically everywhere

      For example, when in a folder group of apps, in the upper, right-hand corner, I can select Add Apps and Change Folder. I should also be able to select "sort alphabetically", which would keep that folder tidy and automatically sorted if I wanted.

      This same functionality should also be on the Frequently Used Apps page. Hear me out. The page will still filter the most frequently used apps, but it would sort them alphabetically. Many people will still want them sorted by usage, and that's great, but just give us the option to keep them sorted alphabetically. I personally would…

                      • home screen grid sucks

                        The layout grid on the home screen pages is garbage. The spacing is not intuitive and isn't uniform and if you try to place an icon below a folder the folder wants to jump up or the icon is pushed down. Unless I explicitly drag an icon or folder next to another one I don't want the existing object bouncing all over the place. The layout engine should work similar to the stock android launcher, if not better.

                        • icon space

                          the spaces in icon colums and rows on home screen is too much. At the mean time, can only make use of combination of icon columns and rows to control the spaces but it's not perfect.
                          hope you can offer an option change the icon, folder and widgets padding in homescreen like what Nova launcher did long time ago.
                          btw, the search bar widget had eat up much spaces. It is too low if i disable the dock and my samsung natvigation bar on my S9 and put the bar to the bottom, the spaces between it and the fir…

                                      • when icon pack is changed some icons on home screen doesnt change but they are changed correctly in app drawer

                                        If i change the icon pack then some icons placed as shortcut on home screen are not changed as per the applied icon pack but those icons are changed correctly inside app drawer so each when i apply icon pack i have to remove unchanged shortcuts and add again them from app drawer

                                          when i change icon of one app, i have to scroll down over 3000 icons in icon pack. i think, we should have find command or sort by name
