  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

    I have set the Bing daily wallpaper as background. The Bing logo is no longer shown on the display so I can't read where the picture was taken. Please restore the link?

  10. icon size

    Maximum Icon size dramatically reduced in this version over previous version, with too much of a gap between icons on a page. The maximum Icon size needs to be increased back to the size of previous versions.

  17. New App Shortcuts

    Recently when installing new apps, the automatic shortcuts are being placed on the halfway point between the two vertically scrolling pages. This only occurs when there is two blank rows on the 2nd (bottom) screen. If they are full, the default 'no space for shortcut' appears as it should.

  19. icons crammed

    Icons crammed into the top left corner of one of my screens, making the text illegible due to overlapping. New apps installed seem to go around them
