  1. 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)

        • 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.

              • 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!

                  • 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)

                    • Automatic theme based on android's palette api.

                      Now that we have palette api it would be cool for nova launcher to use it for automatic theming of folder/drawer backgrounds and overscroll effects.

                      It is a very simple feature that provides such a big UI refresh(also, it is insanely-easy to implement!) :D

                      No more boring white folders!

                        • Horizontal Scrolling on Folders

                          Title switching from center to left side
                          And creating a dot page indicator at the right side
                          And the scrolling effect is horizontal

                          • 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…

                            • Please make the vertical scrolling similar to android Marshmallow.

                              With persistent app search toolbox at the top and the ability to scroll using the alphabet - the same as in list view.

                                    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.

                                      • Problem: TeslaUnread disable automatically

                                        Running Nova Prime 4.1.0 on my Samsung 6S. The counter for unread (by TeslaUnread) disables automatically. Any ideas?

                                        • Samsung call notification pop-up

                                          With Nova Launcher, when I receive a call, Samsung's call notification pop-up always in use, even on home screen (no app is open).
