      • Add swipe from left to right for Google Now (Like in the Google Now Launcher)

        Add swipe from left to right for Google Now (Like in the Google Now Launcher)

        In Google Now Launcher, the user is able to swipe from left to right and bring up Google Now. It would be great if this new feature could be added to nova Launcher.

            • Tasker plugin for the Nova actions and configuration options.

              It would be really awesome if Nova will provide a plugin for Tasker for better automation of our smartphones. Really miss the possibility to enable/disable launcher screen rotation when I put the phone into the car dock. I have to do it manually or I have to keep it on all the time, what I don't like.

              • More logical animations in the Nova UI

                Dear Developer!

                Your Nova Launcher Prime is my favorite launcher.
                Congratulations!

                I have a suggestion. May I?

                In the "Nova actions" section, replace the "show previews" action animation from "zoom in" to "ZOOM OUT" please!
                And the nova action - open app drawer effect meant to be a "zoom in".
                It is the only one frustrating thing in Nova Launcher Prime for me.
                Can you replace it please?

                In my opinion, animations in the UI are not just because to be fancy or cool looking.
                Thay have a psychological part to!
                They can show the brain that "where am I…

                • Add swipe to the left for Google Now (Kit kat feature)

                  In Kit kat, the user is able to swipe to the far left to bring up Google Now. It would be great if this new feature could be added to nova.

                  • on installing Nova Launcher, check to see if previous backup was made with the filename "default" and if so automatically restore it

                    If you have set your phone up as you like it, and performed a nova backup with the filename default, it's nice to be able to reset your phone and have nova automatically look for a previous backup called default and apply it when reinstalling the app.

                    • a mic icon only search bar

                      It would be cool if you could have a search bar that was only the mic icon in the corner of the desktop. It would save space, but at the same time help indicate if Google was listening for vice commands.

                      • Separate wallpapers or crop settings for portrait and landscape

                        I'd like to be able to use images cropped differently for landscape and portrait modes. My phone is set up for scrolling background with multiple home screens and if I crop to achieve the desired appearance in portrait the landscape mode is cropped in a way that loses much of the visual appeal. The same applies to landscape when I crop for portrait mode.

                        • Stop all development on Nova for 4.4

                          Stop all development on Nova for 4.4, commence development for 5.0.

                          Perhaps park 4.4 and leave alone. Start a new Nova Launcher for 5.0, will reduce the bloat.

                          • Exclude Swipe Down 'L' from 'Recents'

                            When you exit from Recents, execute the Swipe Down animations but no for open them. This break UX and need to change one of the animations. I think that open/close Recents should be fade in/out but both swipes are good to me too.

                            • google now feature from lockscreen

                              I have disabled google now and google search app on my device.

                              And in the recent update, I can notice an upward arrow on the bottom of the lockscreen. This when dragged, just like Home button, is triggered to run google search.

                              So in my case, all I get is a blank screen, even Back, Home keys do not appear. Only way to get out is to press lock key and then to not attempt this again.

                              I agree its rather weird for me to open google search using this, but then I was just curious to know as to…

                                  • Dynamic calendar doesn't work properly

                                    The calendar icon in my app drawer doesn't update automatically. I have to disable then enable the app for the icon to change the correct date. It worked at first but now it doesn't update at all. Any help would be appreciated. btw I'm on a galaxy s3 with cm10.2.0 jb4.3.1.

                                    As for a suggestion how about being able to customizing the visual feedback when you press an icon.

                                    • Ability to place same app in multiple app drawer folders

                                      For example, Zedge is an app for wallpapers and ringtones. I have two separate app drawer folders labeled as AUDIO and VISUAL. I'd like to be able to place Zedge into both app drawer folders.
