    • fix slow notification pull down gesture after Marshmallow upgrade

      Since updating my Nexus 5 to Marshmallow the other day, using the mid-screen swipe down gesture to open the notification pane is very slow. It does open, but it very slowly slides down about 25% of the way, stops a couple seconds, then the entire pane shows up.

      Swiping down from the notification bar to open the pane like normal works fast and as expected.

      Thanks!

      • Icon Swipe up will open menu of actions , Just like iOS 3D touch

        Nowadays , when you swipe up an icon you can only do 1 action.

        Add an option to add additional actions, and while swiping up,if it was set to more than 1 action, a menu will open, just like iOS 3D touch.

          • Automatic theme based on android's palette api.

            Now that we have palette api it would be cool for nova launcher to use it for automatic theming of folder/drawer backgrounds and overscroll effects.

            It is a very simple feature that provides such a big UI refresh(also, it is insanely-easy to implement!) :D

            No more boring white folders!

            • Please make the vertical scrolling similar to android Marshmallow.

              With persistent app search toolbox at the top and the ability to scroll using the alphabet - the same as in list view.

                • Show recent opened apps in App drawer

                  Instead of showing the recently installed or updated apps, show the recent opened apps. Or, make it configurable what to show.

                    • Horizontal Scrolling on Folders

                      Every time you put more icons in a folder
                      Title switching from center to left side
                      And creating a dot page indicator at the right side
                      And the scrolling effect is horizontal

                      • Swipe left for Google Now

                        I really like this app so so much. However, the one thing I think you guys should add is you know how when you swipe to the left screen on the Google now launcher, and it shows Google now? If you guys could include a feature like that in settings, that would be amazing.

                        • Moving application icons in the application menu.

                          It is necessary to implement the movement of the application icon in the application list. This has been done in folders. We need to do the same.

                          • … to add the ability to bind desktop icons not to grid, but to the physical orientation of screen.

                            Yes, you're right: two differend kinds of settings to one desktop screen is bad for UXp. But there is no actual need in such cardinal modification.

                            Just provide in desktop settings a checkbox for attaching desktop icons not to a regular desktop grid, but to physical orientation of screen.

                            I'll try to make myself more clear.

                            Portrait and landscape layouts on smartphones are not equal: portrait generally is much more convenient. I'm not talking about tablets today.
                            So, if you have 12 icons on desktop with 3×4 / 4×3 grid, you have them arranged like:
                            |123|
                            |456|
                            |789|
                            |ABC|
                            (portrait)…

                                  • Unread Count keeps turining off on its own!?

                                    I've had Nova Launcher Prime for a long time...love it. Currently running on GN5 - unread count keeps turning off on its own!? I turn it back on in Nova Launcher settings, but it turns itself off again about 5 minutes later.

                                    • (For Chinese users) app search supports T9 input which is useful for both English and Chinese app. See an app "Meemo"

                                      I'm a chinese user. When I want to search an app through app search, apps with English name won't show if I use Chinese IME, while apps with Chinese name won't show if I use English IME. It would be so much better if nova can use T9 just like in app "Meemo", which can greatly boost the speed of app search.
