    • Locking the Hide Apps option with pin or pattern

      The Hide apps option in the app drawer must be protected with a pin or pattern so that no body goes in the hide apps without propler identification

      • 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.

          • 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)

            • 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.

                • 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…

                  • Tesla Unread error

                    I'm using Nova Prime 4.2.2 & TeslaUnread 5.0.2 with Huawei honor6.
                    After recent update Counts Badge of dialer & message is same number.
                    missed call is no counting. dialer is displayed message number.
                    Of course, message app is displayed message number.
                    I want to see the number of missed calls.

                    So I did turn off message's badge in teslaunread.
                    And they both turned off.

                    • Icon Swipe up will open menu of actions , Just like iOS 3D touch

                      Nowadays , when you swipe up an icon you can only do 1 action.

                      Add an option to add additional actions, and while swiping up,if it was set to more than 1 action, a menu will open, just like iOS 3D touch.

                      • Allow Lock Screen function to be unlocked by fingerprint

                        On the Nexus 6P, using a gesture assigned to Screen Lock makes it so that the lock screen can only be unlocked by the primary method, such as a pattern or PIN. It would be very helpful if it could also be unlocked by fingerprint (if the device has it enabled)

                        • Animate after an app completely loads

                          Simply proposing a toggle that would allow an app to load past it's splash screen before actually transitioning into the app from the desktop/app drawer/folder/dock. This can be seen in some MIUI devices (don't quote me on that).

                          Android apps do not follow any design rules when it comes to splash screen, hence by implementing this - it could just bring us closer to making our themed systems look more unified and/or to simply unsee unwanted or unfavourable splash screens.

                          • Option to completely Remove App Drawer

                            There should be a option to completely remove App Drawer. I know app drawer is very important for many people, but there are also other who thinks app drawer is just a waste of time. It is rather unnecessary some time. Many manufacturers have their own UI where there is no app drawer .LG already has removed it by default on the G5(has option to add it back), Samsung has given option for it and Google is rumored to be removing it from Android N.
                            I know, I can customize and remove app drawer icon, But that's just lennthy(I will…

                              • Show all icons related to the app in the "Common" header.

                                The common header should show all icons related to the app instead of only the one in which is the default icon pack. This will make icon changing easier.

                                • fix slow notification pull down gesture after Marshmallow upgrade

                                  Since updating my Nexus 5 to Marshmallow the other day, using the mid-screen swipe down gesture to open the notification pane is very slow. It does open, but it very slowly slides down about 25% of the way, stops a couple seconds, then the entire pane shows up.

                                  Swiping down from the notification bar to open the pane like normal works fast and as expected.

                                  Thanks!

                                  • More effects and full screen folder

                                    It will be great if you add more transitions effects. Nova launcher is really poor on this...! Also please add option to have full screen folders with blur background.
                                    Thank you
