    • long pressing on apps on the homescreen is inconsistent

      when you long press on a homescreen app that is in either the furthest column to the left or right, the long press menu frequently only appears for half a second before disappearing, whereas long press functionality is perfectly fine for apps that aren't on the edge of the homescreen panel

                      • locking the home screen prevents long press app menus

                        When you lock the home screens, it also prevents you from using the long press contextual menus on apps. for example (with home screens unlocked), if I long press chrome, it'll give the option to open a tab or open incognito. When you lock the home screen, it disables the ability to do that which shouldn't be the case. This also applies to long presses in the app drawer.

                                      • When apps are updated, they are moved to the bottom of home screen folders. I think it would be ideal if they stay in the same place.

                                        When apps are updated, they are moved to the bottom of home screen folders. I think it would be ideal if they stay in the same place, as I try to organize these folders in a specific fashion. Thanks!

                                        • sometimes the home screen icons don't load when going back to the homescreen

                                          When I tap the home button, sometimes the home screen is blank/icons and widgets don't load. I can swipe left and right, but the pages are blank.
