  1. Nexus Launcher Style App Drawer

    http://www.androidpolice.com/2016/08/01/exclusive-this-is-googles-new-nexus-launcher-that-may-debut-on-the-2016-nexus-phones/

    It would be cool if there was a native way to slide up from the dock to open the app drawer as seen in the above link. I know you can set up a swipe gesture, but it isn't as smooth. I'm looking for a way to slide the entire dock up to open the app drawer.

      • Swipe left for Google Now

        I really like this app so so much. However, the one thing I think you guys should add is you know how when you swipe to the left screen on the Google now launcher, and it shows Google now? If you guys could include a feature like that in settings, that would be amazing.

                • Allow wallpaper change in Night Mode

                  When Night Mode is set to Auto on it would be good if my wallpaper could also automatically change. I could for example have a bright wallpaper by day and a dark wallpaper after sunset.

                    I would like it when I just sign in on a new device and install nova launcher, and all my settings my settings appear without doing anything.

                    • Double tap to wake and lock device from home screen

                      Please add a feature that allows phones with the functionality to lock and unlock with a double tap such as the LG G series phones and HTC on Nova launcher. So that the phones can be locked with a double tap on the home screen and unlocked with a double tap.

                      • Please add more options to Folder background.

                        I'll really appreciate if you would be able to change the folder's icon background color and transparency instead of the current black color. Also the ability to customize the shape with more options (i.e: the square folder type like in xperia phones, LG, samsung etc)

                        • Fix fingerprint compability

                          It's not an idea, it's a bug. Ever since the the latest Samsung firmware update, the fingerprint scanner doesn't work anymore when locking the device with a Nova Launcher gesture.

                          Example: I lock my phone by swiping up from the home screen (that's a Nova Laucher gesture). When trying to unlock the phone, it prompts you to either enter the passcode or the password you've set. The fingerprint doesn't work anymore.

                          When locking the device with the physical lock button there are no issues, the unlock via fingerprint works as a charm.

                          I've read of several people on Reddit that…

                          • Allow family library for past purchases

                            With the newly added Google Family Library feature, all apps purchased after July 2nd 2016 can be shared with your Family Group members by default, and developers can additionally allow past purchases to be added.

                            It would be great if I could use Nova prime on my wife's phone as well, but I am a fairly long time user, so I'm not currently eligible for family library for it.

                            It'd be great if the developers would flip the switch for us!

                            • Google search bar be updated to a search bar like in the Nexus launcher leak, fully animated to enable a smooth transition to google now.

                              The permanent Google search bar has many options currently, but with Nexus style folders, it would be really nice toatch them with the Nexus pill and date replacement for the current Google search bar.

                                    I'd love to see this feature as it is in Hola Launcher. Please make it possible to scroll through the folders on the homescreens. The one that many launcher offer that don't feature a drawer.
