  1. 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.

    • 'Cylinder' and 'Sphere' transition effects

      The updated ADW launcher has some nice updated transition effects, sphere has been in go launcher forever.

      It would be nice to see these in nova . . . and one that none have which is a 'cylinder' home screen transition (not like the infinate spin of TSF) litterally a cylinder wrap from one screen to the next . .

          • 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!

            • Icon highlight on tap

              Desktop & Drawer

              Maybe I did not find the setting, maybe it is not there.
              I would love to see options for the icon tap highlight implemented.
              Give it options like "off", "default", "darken", "flash" and "flip" or something like that. I would prefer the setting "off", just tap and open the app or shortcut - no FX at all. But maybe there are users who would like FX.

              • Scroll Effects - Part Deux

                Nova Launcher 1.0 introduced many nice effects, hoowever, that was a LONG time back.
                To keep ahead of competition in this "Launcher Race" age, a second coming of scroll effects is much needed in Nova. I think this is one of the most apparent gaps in an otherwise TOP launcher.

                I have some suggestions (in order of their coolness).

                Chariot
                Sphere
                Honeycomb
                Cylinder
                Sine Wave
                Bulldoze
                Snake

                Thanks!

                • 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 =)

                  • More logical animations in the Nova UI

                    Dear Developer!

                    Your Nova Launcher Prime is my favorite launcher.
                    Congratulations!

                    I have a suggestion. May I?

                    In the "Nova actions" section, replace the "show previews" action animation from "zoom in" to "ZOOM OUT" please!
                    And the nova action - open app drawer effect meant to be a "zoom in".
                    It is the only one frustrating thing in Nova Launcher Prime for me.
                    Can you replace it please?

                    In my opinion, animations in the UI are not just because to be fancy or cool looking.
                    Thay have a psychological part to!
                    They can show the brain that "where am I…

                    • New Transitions for the home screen/app drawer

                      I would like to see new animations based on those of popular OEM UI's. The best and most intuitive (In my opinion) are those from Cm 10.1's Trebuchet launcher and the effects from Lg's UI 3.0. Many people look to Nova to recreate stock experiences, and these animations would certainly boost an already robust selection.

                          • show previews animation

                            This is a little hard to explain but I'll do my best.

                            Change the animation of the show previews function to fit better with the pinch gesture.

                            At the moment the current screen fades out and the smaller screen previews zoom in.

                            The current screen should instead zoom out (since its a pinch gesture) with a smoother transition to the preview screens

                              In the new circle app open animation, it still uses the Lollipop slide down animation for exiting the app. Please add a circle-style animation for returning to the home screen, too!

                              • 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.

                                  • Fade transition effect

                                    App needs a fade transition effect. It would be similar to flat, but the icons would become less opaque as they left the screen. EGBLauncher has this.

                                    • Add a Parallax Effect Option (Wallpaper Motion Effect)

                                      I absolutely appreciate Nova Launcher for years, but actually I really miss the Parallax Effect on my new Samsung S6 Edge, that unfortunately only works with Samsung Standard TouchWiz.
                                      So please - add a Parallax Opinion to Nova so we can enjoy this beautiful visual effect on our devices again!
                                      Thank you :)

                                        • add a selection for random transition effects

                                          ADW Launcher has the option to set the scrolling transition to Random instead of picking any specific singular transition. This could also be added to the app drawer, but, speaking for myself, I'd only use it for the homescreens.
