  1. Implement a Gesture-based Temporary Widget System

    Something somewhat possibly like, but not necessarily the same as, Shutters in action launcher: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJJynAG3jQQ&feature=player_embedded

    I want to be able to use a gesture to temporarily bring up and then get rid of a widget. I really like their solution -- it would allow me to keep many more widgets much closer without having to keep as many around -- but whichever way you want to go about it, I'll appreciate. I understand that you don't want to copy them, but that doesn't mean you can't implement a system inspired by theirs.

    I know overlapping widgets are already possible, so…

    • Pin widgets between screens

      The ability to pin widget be visible in all home screens without scrolling would be nice.
      ssLauncher has this feature and it opens possibilities for beautiful screens.

      Personally I would like to pin my clock widget to be visible on all screens.

      • Allow month view of google calendar on calendar widget

        On the samsung galaxy s4's default launcher it allows the full month display of google calendar on the desktop.

        when using nova launcher, when you add the calendar widget it only shows THAT DAY, without the capability to change the view into week or month views, even with resizing the widget.

        please, please change this! as i cannot view my whole calendar on one of my homescreens while using nova launcher!

        • Implement WidgetLocker sliders to the homescreen

          There are many styles of slider that people might not use as a lockscreen, but be ideal for the homescreen.

          I've been using WidgetLocker for two years and would love the ability to add WL sliders to the Nova homescreen, either per screen or perhaps floating above all the homescreens.

          It'd look excellent, give an extra outlet for the themers' hard work and provide unique functionality for opening certain apps.

            • Smarter widget resize: framing, scrolling, scaling

              Problem: when I resize a widget (e.g. 4x1 to 2x1), it's centered, but sometimes the information I want from the widget isn't in the center, so resizing degrades the usefulness of the widget.

              Solutions:

              Framing: during resize, drag the widget within the new window to position it and set what parts will be visible.

              Scrolling: during "normal" viewing on the desktop, allow the user to "drag" the widget and scroll it within the resized space.

              Scaling: provide an option to stretch/shrink a widget so that its contents are all displayed within the resized shape.

              Background: I'm using Aix Weather, a…

                    • Add the Xperia Weather Widget

                      I want to be able to use the weather widget my Xperia Z1s came installed with. It's an AccuWeather widget. It's animated and when you tap on it, it expands down to show the next 5 days without having by to go to a website, etc. Is there a way to make our pre-installed widgets available to use through Nova?

                              The weather widget normally takes up 5x1 on TouchWiz but on nova launcher, the font size for this particular widget is jumbo sized forcing it to be 5x2 and if you reduce the size of the widget placement, the text in this widget gets cut off

                              • Allow the widgets can use more space in the home screens beyond the area stipulated for the grid

                                Some widgets have the possibility to adapt for the grid size we have, but some others don't.
                                My suggest is for this widgets type that don't adapt for the grid size for they can use more space to fix the widget size without cut.

                                • Widgets Fire OS

                                  I've tried Nova Launcher on FireOS, whilst its great, widgets don't work.
                                  It would be nice if this issue could be resolved.
                                  I've seen widgets work on other launchers such as Cheetah Launcher.

                                  • A way to set none vertical and horizontal padding.

                                    I only use one desktop, and despite toggling all settings I can think of, widgets are not allowed to expand fully to the sides nor the top.
                                    Here's an example screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/INbBC.png

                                    I've set the width & height margin to none, but ideally I'd like another option, like "Extreme" or "Negative" that allows you to make full use of the desktop.

                                      • Popup Widget from shortcut

                                        I suggest to add a feature that allow to open a widget in a window from a shortcut.
                                        I think that can be very useful.

                                        • Widgets support for android for work

                                          Currently it is not possible to add android for work related widgets. For example you cannot create a shortcut to a drive document that belongs to the work account.
