    • 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.

      • Pixel search bar - include weather information above the date

        I've noticed with the new Google Pixel phone, on the right hand side, instead of just the date there is now weather information at the top, with the date at the bottom:

        http://imgur.com/a/FLaFV

        Any chance you can implement this?

        Thanks!

                  • Black Mode for Nova Settings Background

                    1. Replace the "Night Mode" with "Black Mode"
                    2. Use a Black Background instead of Grey.
                    3. Add Option to Change the Accent Color; which is stuck in Red.

                    • Paginated page for widgets and blurred background

                      I wan't:
                      - vertical paginated page for widgets (like arrow launcher)
                      - blurred background on specific pages (like arrow)
                      - blurred background on dock (not like arrow)
                      - blurred background on app drawer (like arrow)

                      thanks for your work =)

                      • Backup nova settings to google account

                        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.

                        • Add experimental Pixel Launcher searchbar style (featuring rounded sides)

                          Google has been testing searchbar redesign in Pixel Launcher.

                          More can be found here: http://www.androidpolice.com/2016/11/02/google-appears-testing-new-rounder-search-widget/

                          It looks so much better than the "pill" button. Would be amazing to be able to use it in Nova :)

                            • Add New Gestures & Actions/Shortcuts

                              Gestures;
                              1. Rotate Clockwise (1 Finger)
                              2. Rotate Counter-Clockwise (1 Finger)
                              Actions/Shortcuts;
                              1. Toggle Mobile Data/WiFi/Bluetooth/Hotspot/NFC.
                              2. Toggle Flash Light/Torch.
                              3. Take Picture/Start Video Recording.

                              Also a Gesture Search would be nice when "Pull To Search" in App Drawer is used.

                              • 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.

                                    • White icons in a black drawer

                                      I use "Dark Icons" cause my wallpaper is white, but my drawer is black, so I need status bar icons white when drawer is open

                                      • Using the main UI themes and icons

                                        Sometimes I want to use my phone's main UI themes and icons on nova but nova launcher doesn't support this feature
                                        Please add setting for using and import original UI themes and icons (huawei EMUI , HTC sense, MIUI ,samsung touchwiz and .....)
                                        thank you

                                        • Left + Right gestures

                                          It would be awesome to have swipe left and right gestures, instead of just vertical ones.

                                          "WHY WOULD THIS GUY NEED SWIPE LEFT AND RIGHT OPTIONS??" you may ask.

                                          I know that swiping left/right defaults to prev/next homescreens, however, I personally just have one homescreen, so not being able to swipe left or right to do anything is a bummer.

                                          My request is if the devs can add left/right gestures, and my suggestion is to have it default to prev/next homescreen just like it currently does, but also giving us the ability to change it to our liking.

                                          Thanks for…
