  1. Custom sorting in App Drawer

    Sorting folders and apps in custom way, like TouchWiz. Still allow the option to sort alphabetically and folders first, but make a custom sorting in both App Drawer and inside folders in App Drawer.

    • 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 :)

      • Add an option for vertical Home screen scrolling

        The Android home screen experience is all about swiping right and left. Now HTC introduced a vertical home screen news feed and I was wondering if there's something that could be done to imitate this on NOVA.

        • Drag and drop apps onto other app in App Drawer to create folders

          In the app drawer, dragging one app on top of another app would create a folder with those apps inside. (As seen in Go Launcher

          • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Multi wallpaper

                      Be able to set a different wallpaper for each screen. So no scrolling on a single image, or a static image, but wallpapers that change depending on what home screen you're at.

                      • Option to add deep soft shadow under icons

                        It would be nice to add an option to create soft shadow behind the icons, like the one in Galaxy S III and MIUI launchers.
                        This would make icons look a lot better on transparent App drawer as well as very light wallpapers.

                        • 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…

                          • Separate portrait and landscape grid sizes for the home screen as already available for the drawer

                            The Drawer App Grid has settings for both landscape and Portrait, but the Desktop only offers a single grid size, resulting in a distorted layout on any rectangular display when rotated. This is both inconvenient and inconsistent.

                            • Show new homescreen upon event (like headphones connected)

                              This is a new feature from the Galaxy S3 TouchWiz (MotionWiz). When I connect my headphones a new homescreen appears which is a normal screen with own widgets (music player, FM radio, etc), but it is only available, when my headphones are connected.

                              Some other options: show a noew screen, when I dock my phone, or I connect to a specific WiFi network, etc. Maybe it could be compatible with Tasker/Local, but it is an extra option.

                              • '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 . .

                                • Auto App Organization into Folders and Sections based on Play Store category

                                  I like to keep my home screen clean by having all my apps organized into contextual folders (e.g. Games all in one place in a games folder). If you have a lot of apps though, doing this manually is time consuming, and you're always wondering if you missed an app when you install a fresh batch, especially with the 25 cent sale that's going on.

                                  My idea to all the launcher devs like Nova and Apex would be to incorporate a option that automatically sorts your apps into folders based on their play store location. Google's already done the hard…

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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:

                                      or this video:

                                      • Glass transition effect like the one in Vire Launcher

                                        Recently i saw the glass transition effect of the Vire Launcher.It's most amazing effect i have seen so far.I don't know if the Nova developers can do it.If they can add such an effect then it would be great!

                                        • Swipe down on Dock Icons

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