  1. Double tap to screen on/off like solo launcher

    Saw this feature on solo launcher, nova should implant this as well (yes I've tried the double tap gesture with screen off app)

        • Please add Samsung weather and S Planner widget for Homescreen in your launcher.

          Please add Samsung Weather and S Planner widget for Homescreen in your launcher. Because of that i didn´t use the launcher at this time.

          • 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.

            • Tasker plugin for the Nova actions and configuration options.

              It would be really awesome if Nova will provide a plugin for Tasker for better automation of our smartphones. Really miss the possibility to enable/disable launcher screen rotation when I put the phone into the car dock. I have to do it manually or I have to keep it on all the time, what I don't like.

              • "Quick Search" box in the app drawer

                What about a little "quick search" box in the app drawer, to quickly filter/search all of the apps to find the right one, when having very many installed, a short entering of 2-3 letters could lead to the app.

                • More logical animations in the Nova UI

                  Dear Developer!

                  Your Nova Launcher Prime is my favorite launcher.
                  Congratulations!

                  I have a suggestion. May I?

                  In the "Nova actions" section, replace the "show previews" action animation from "zoom in" to "ZOOM OUT" please!
                  And the nova action - open app drawer effect meant to be a "zoom in".
                  It is the only one frustrating thing in Nova Launcher Prime for me.
                  Can you replace it please?

                  In my opinion, animations in the UI are not just because to be fancy or cool looking.
                  Thay have a psychological part to!
                  They can show the brain that "where am I…

                      • Dropdown from current Tab label for quick switch to other Tab.

                        Wouldn't it be great in the AppDrawer if tapping the current tab label would drop down a vertical list (or even a grid) of all tabs - especially if you have many of them - so you can select and switch to another "distant" tab rapidly without the drudgery of endless horizontal swiping.
                        This request probably belongs to the same league as :::
                        - A way to speed through the App Drawer (March 21, 2012 – Lars Grove Jørgensen).
                        - Option for created App Groups to show in Dropdown under Apps (January 28, 2013 – Michael Taylor).
                        - Vertical Tabs…

                        • Stop all development on Nova for 4.4

                          Stop all development on Nova for 4.4, commence development for 5.0.

                          Perhaps park 4.4 and leave alone. Start a new Nova Launcher for 5.0, will reduce the bloat.

                                  • include shortcuts to either "Power Menu" or "Screenshot" via your Gestures and Buttons.

                                    It would be very useful to access the Power Menu or to take instant Screenshots through the gestures and buttons(such as "Long Press Menu"). It would help with the lifespan of the hardware power button and would make the launcher a LOT more convenient.

                                        • Add a swipe gesture to launch an applications widget.

                                          For the swipe option add the option to have the applications widget pop up.
