    • save preferences and layout via Android Backup Service

      I love the Backup functionality; I don't know what's involved in doing this, but I'd rather see it work via Android's Backup Service, so that when I got a new device, the layout and settings would restore automatically over the cloud rather than requiring me to manually transfer the export file.

            • 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.

              • Use folders from Folder Organizer (like Titanium Backup does)

                There's a small tool called Folder Organizer, which does pretty much anything I find in the folder-related requests here. The folder links, however, look pretty ugly, compared to nova's folders. It seems there is a way to use FO's information, Titanium Backup, for example, uses this to group apps. Providing this, Nova would stand out of other lauchers (again). Maybe consider this.
                http://www.folderorganizer.net/ (I'm not affiliated in any way, just a user)

                • Integrate with WidgetLocker

                  Would be great if Nova Launcher was completly integrated with WidgetLocker, WL should use Nova Launcher as default launcher instead HomeHelper, maybe at this way we avoid redraws when come back from lock screen.

                    • Scheduled Backups

                      Have an auto-backup option available that allows you to schedule backups (i.e., select which days and times to perform backup). A bonus would be to sync the backups to Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. Similar to backup/sync options in Titanium Backup.

                      • notification count bubble for other apps, like maildroid

                        ok i use mail-droid and would like to have the notification bubble work for it, now the mail-droid dev has already put in place notifications. now having it specific for mail-droid would be ok too, but more looking for a generic add application to the bubble settings.

                                • Restore "System Settings" to Desktop Menu (Beta)

                                  Consider restoring "System Settings" to the Desktop Menu. This feature was removed in the #materinova.14 beta update (03-10-2015).

                                  Quick access to "System Settings" means one less icon to clutter the App Drawer.

                                    • Tasker integration for theming support

                                      It would be really good if I could use tasker to replace the icons for my dock. I like to change them now and again and if Nova supported such a thing, Tasker could do it automatically for me.

                                      • Export unread numbers to tasker variable

                                        I would like to beable to use the tesla unread numbers in tasker to do whatever I want with them, including sending them to a watch face in Android Wear.
