    • 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.

            Why could you only customize the home screen things of the phone why not also with a one touch theme option to make the lock screen and notification bar like android lollipop or KitKat.

            • Unread count on TeslaUnread not working on new Hangouts 2.3

              Hello, just to let you know that the unread count for Hangouts is now not working after updating the Hangouts app today to the new version of 2.3

              Hopefully you can fix this soon as it's the main reason why I bought Nova Launcher was to use use TeslaUnread for Hangouts.

              Thanks in advance.

              • Fix pin action note for Note 4

                Nova breaks the ability to "pin" action notes to the home screen like you can with TW on the Note 4. Nova actually completely removes the pin icon from the action note. This is a huge deal and may force many Note 4 users to stop using Nova if it isn't corrected

                • Scroll Effects - Part Deux

                  Nova Launcher 1.0 introduced many nice effects, hoowever, that was a LONG time back.
                  To keep ahead of competition in this "Launcher Race" age, a second coming of scroll effects is much needed in Nova. I think this is one of the most apparent gaps in an otherwise TOP launcher.

                  I have some suggestions (in order of their coolness).

                  Chariot
                  Sphere
                  Honeycomb
                  Cylinder
                  Sine Wave
                  Bulldoze
                  Snake

                  Thanks!

                  • Tesla Unread - Support for new "non-google" accounts in Gmail

                    Currently, Tesla Unread only recognizes the regular gmail accounts in the Gmail app. With version 5.x, Google now supports other types including Exchange. The unread count does not see these emails and you can't add gmail to the "monitor the notification bar"

                    • Blur Dock Background

                      As a graphic design, I applaud legibility. Make dock backgrounds colored or transparent help with those goals.

                      As much as I dislike Apple, their use of blurring background imagery improves legibility and offers a "third way" to make the Android launcher our own.

                      Please add dock background blur as a slider, allowing us as little or as much as we want.

                            • 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!

                              • Multitasking menu: Google search bar falling down after closing multitasking menu

                                Nexus 5 Lollipop OTA:
                                So, go into your Multitasking Menu by pressing the square button, and then get out again by pressing one of the three menu buttons, you will see that there is somehow a google searchbar is falling down which looks super wird.
                                you don't have that in the google now launcher, would be nice if this gets fixed

                                    When you long pressed the desktop, a dialog is displayed. If would be nice if instead of that dialog, the new Kitkat or Lollipop widget and wallpaper selector is displayed

                                    • Unread count for Google Inbox

                                      Hello, it would be nice if TeslaUnread would support the new Google Inbox mail system.

                                      • Expand quick settings in Android 5.0 Lollipop

                                        In Lollipop the "Expand quick settings" functionality under "Gestures and Buttons" no longer seems to work. This should be equivalent to the double swipe down in stock Android, could you please reinstate it? THanks
