        • 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

          • 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.

            • 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!

              • lollipop lock screen and notification bar themes

                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.

                • 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.

                  • Add option to change font and font size

                    It would be great if users could use their own fonts. Also, ability to change font size is a must.

                    Basically this and not being able to rearrange apps in drawer are the only two reasons why I'm still not buying the Prime version.

                    The moment this is implemented in an update, I will immediately buy what will undoubtedly become THE best launcher available in Play Store.

                    • appdrawer gestures

                      Nova launcher is a really great app but can you please also include the features below.....

                      1) App drawer gestures for going back to home screen (by swiping down for example).

                      2) A gesture toggle from home screen to hide/show the navigation bar in optional translucent/normal way.

                      The app would be limitless with these both. Good work team!!

                      Also I will be considering the prime version just for these two features, if they are included.
                      So, Am eagerly waiting for the update!!!

                      • Beta: Increase Icon Size Past 150%

                        The Nova Launcher Beta (2015-03-10) increased the max icon size to 150%.

                        Why stop there?

                          • 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

                            • 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.

                                  • 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"

                                    • Allow hiding the dock on a specific home screen

                                      I like to have a full page widget on one of my home screens. It would be great to be able to hide the dock automatically when I go to that page, so it could actually fill the page, but show the dock on the rest of the home screens.

                                      • 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!

                                        • Semi-Transparent Notification Bar

                                          A fully transparent notification bar limits wallpaper choice as icons disappear on white wallpaper. Apex allows a semi-transparent notification bar and this would be a great addition to Nova. Currently, we can only choose fully transparent or fully black. The black looks terrible.
