    • 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…

      • 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.)

        • 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.

            • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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!

                                  Desktop & Drawer

                                  Maybe I did not find the setting, maybe it is not there.
                                  I would love to see options for the icon tap highlight implemented.
                                  Give it options like "off", "default", "darken", "flash" and "flip" or something like that. I would prefer the setting "off", just tap and open the app or shortcut - no FX at all. But maybe there are users who would like FX.

                                      I've tried Nova Launcher on FireOS, whilst its great, widgets don't work.
                                      It would be nice if this issue could be resolved.
                                      I've seen widgets work on other launchers such as Cheetah Launcher.

                                      • Bug Report: Can't add Dual Clock Widget

                                        Can't add googles dual clock widget to your homescreen. Keeps popping up asking for a city and when you choose the city it just closes and never adds widget.

                                        • Please make a choice of dark theme of settings!!!
