  1. new page with shortcuts missing

    I have an option to create new page, but it is not giving me an option to create empty page where I can put new application icons. I can provide more details and screenshots via email if needed.

  2. Message counter malfunction

    The message counters don't update immediately, and remain stuck for a while. Some of them don't even update for days, once you have read all the messages.
    Please solve this issue quickly guys, it's fundamental for everyday use.
    Cheers,

    Fernando

  6. Icons appear pixelated

    When the icon size is set to anything larger than default they seem normal however when set to default they seem pixelated. This happens only on icons that are inside folders also my icons are circular and this problem occured when I upgraded to the latest version

  7. app folders

    apps in the folders on the home screen tend to have more padding that the app icon, resulting in vairous accidental touches, especially when touched around 1cm below the icon when viewing in a opened folder

  9. Icon

    Changing icon via app drawer doesn't change icon in every required places. Such as in frequently used app section when you pull down search. I'm not sure about in notifications if the icon changes there too or not.

  13. Home screen not filling with icons

    Since the update I loaded this morning my home screen of icons are not filling the whole screen. There is a large gap between the bottom row and the dock. When I change the number of rows it just makes more in the same smaller space and the gap remains the same. I have a Droid Turbo.

  15. Home screens resizing

    With one of the latest updates the home screens seem to have an issue where they resize to fit all the icons on the screen as you swipe between them. It's very distracting as it causes a brief "jump" of all the icons as they are resized. It's also not consistent, affects different home screens to different amounts, depending on how they are laid out, and depending on whether you swipe in from the left or the right.

  17. Rows/columns settings for menu icons are again messed up. Columns change rows in fact instead of columns and rows settings don't work at all

    Rows/columns settings for menu icons are messed up again Jesus Christ. When you change columns they it in fact applies to rows instead and when you change rows, nothing happens, it does not work at all. In addition when I set columns to 6, then it changes to 5. When I set it to 7, it changes to 6. Seriously...every fu* update ... It's boring.

  18. Forced Round Icons

    The latest update has changed about 90% of the icons to be circular. Could this be an option so I can put it back to the square icons that I was happy with before?
