  1. Keep asking for Accessibility permission for gesture

    Launcher keeps asking to activate accessibility in order to use swipe gestures etc, and the system promptly forgets it shortly after. MS launcher is the only accessibility that won't stay activated. I have a couple of other apps that need it and they have no problems.

  2. Apps not opening in folders

    Apps will not open in a folder on the home screen. It will register that you tapped the application but it will not open. Apps with open from the apps drawer and from the home screen. Once you add the application to a folder it will bit open.

    I have a screen recording if you want it.

  5. Folder layout is limited into 3x3 in full screen mode

    In latest build when 'Show folders Full Screen' is enabled you only get a 3 x 3 grid which means what was once a single page has now become multiple pages. This is a nightmare. I now have to tap the folder and swipe multiple times to access apps that used to be right near my thumb along the bottom of the folder.

    If you want to preserve this pretty layout, at least give us the ability to control the grid size on our own.

  8. Difficult to reposition icons

    Moving the icons around the home screen is hard to control. They seem to have a mind of their own.

  18. text bold

    The bold text in the new update is not an improvement - instead of text for an app name spanning to multiple lines we see "...". Please make this configurable - bold/not bold and ability to display entire app name without "...", even if that means spanning app name across multiple lines!

  20. Web results are slowing down entire search results including apps.

    There should be an option to disable web results in search results.
