    • Let us change to the look of the old Nova without downloading v3.3.

      I don't really care all that much for Material Design, and I'm considering changing to Apex. I think we should also have more settings, because it seems like some are missing (height/width margin, tablet UI mode, etc.)

      • Desktop screen preview grid

        Can we please have the option to go back to the single-screen grid preview of all our desktop screens please?

        The new ribbon is all very nice, but by the time I've scrolled through the little windows to get to the desktop screen that I want I may as well have just scrolled directly through the desktop screens themselves to it.

        The old way with everything on one screen where you could just point directly at the screen you wanted to go to was much better. Can we have it back please (or if it's still in there somewhere can…

        • Please bring back the widget tab...

          Dear developers,
          I love and use the Nova Launcher now for a very long time and have always been satisfied. Even now, I have almost nothing to complain about. But lately I miss the option to display the widgets in the app launcher. I would be very grateful if you could add these tiny optional setting. I think and hope that this is not asking too much. I have already purchased the Pro Key, but a donation in the amount of $ 10 would be me also value.
          With best regards,
          B. Franz

            • 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.

                • Circle app closing animation

                  In the new circle app open animation, it still uses the Lollipop slide down animation for exiting the app. Please add a circle-style animation for returning to the home screen, too!

                  • Release Nova Classic (3.3) as a seperate app in Google Play

                    I downloaded and installed Nova 3.3 from your website, but Google Play keeps notifying me about updates. I don't want to update Nova, so I'm forced to update my other apps one by one; can't use the "update all" option, because it would update Nova as well.

                                Just installed a new version of Nova Launcher. App drawer with vertical scrolling style now has a scrollbar which looks ugly for me.
                                Please introduce at least an option to hide a scrollbar in the app drawer.

                                • Restore "System Settings" to Desktop Menu (Beta)

                                  Consider restoring "System Settings" to the Desktop Menu. This feature was removed in the #materinova.14 beta update (03-10-2015).

                                  Quick access to "System Settings" means one less icon to clutter the App Drawer.

                                    • Allow folders to give a preview with the s pen like on the Note 3..

                                      The Samsung Note devices should have features dedicated to the s pen. Hovering the S pen over folders should reveal its content like the feature found on the Note 3. Icons and widgets should also be interactive by showing menus, info or even editing options when hovering the pen.

                                      • Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

                                        Can you support the always on edge for the Note Edge? I would like to keep the transparent always open side panel that comes with the phone but also use your awesome launcher.

                                        Thanks!

                                        • Home Screen Preview AFTER latest update (May 2015)

                                          With the latest update, I am VERY disappointed with the change to the home screen previews feature. Before the update, the home screen preview brought up a single screen with each home screen shown, any one of which was just a single touch away. Now the preview is just a smaller replica of the normal horizontal scrolling home screens. Why would I bring up a preview to then scroll left or right to choose the home screen I want? No one would as it would be more efficient to just scroll left/right on the home screen. So you've completely defeated…
