  1. Full theme Support, not only icons

    I noticed that when i apply a theme the icons changed, but the rest of the theme dosent change (for example font or appdrawer design).

    Would love to see that nova gets the compatibility to all themes not only icons :)

      • MIUI / iOS7 folder style

        I would love an option to make the folders pop up like in MIUI (similar to iOS7 now) and blur the background. Have a look at the right image here to see what I mean:

        • Swipe down on Dock Icons

          In addition to the swipe up function for the dock icons a swipe down function would really be nice.

            • Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

              Can you support the always on edge for the Note Edge? I would like to keep the transparent always open side panel that comes with the phone but also use your awesome launcher.

              Thanks!

              • Expand quick settings in Android 5.0 Lollipop

                In Lollipop the "Expand quick settings" functionality under "Gestures and Buttons" no longer seems to work. This should be equivalent to the double swipe down in stock Android, could you please reinstate it? THanks

                      • 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)

                              Turned ON by taping the shortcut.
                              Turn OFF by taping icon and enter the password.
                              Option to make Kids Mode or Guest Mode default when device is turned on.

                              Few desktops for icons & widgets, different wallpaper.
                              Everything else especially settings is hidden.
                              Option to lock appearance (that child can't move anything)

                                • Individual Profiles - switchable work/home/outdoors.

                                  Would it be at all possible to have individual profiles and be able to switch between 'profiles' for example with a home profile you have say TV guide widget, photo album widget, certain wallpaper etc and on the work profile you might have say Calendar Widget, Email widget, alternative wallpaper etc so basically it switches between two backups according to which profile is chosen.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Icon Size separate for Desktop, Dock and App Drawer

                                        Change separate the Icon size for Desktop, Dock and App Drawer. It gives more individuality to custom his Screens, Drawer and Dock

                                        • Fix pin action note for Note 4

                                          Nova breaks the ability to "pin" action notes to the home screen like you can with TW on the Note 4. Nova actually completely removes the pin icon from the action note. This is a huge deal and may force many Note 4 users to stop using Nova if it isn't corrected
