  1. Full Pixel Dock background Option

    For phones with on-screen buttons like the Pixel, it'd be great if we could choose wether or not to have the background image of the dock to also extend down to the bottom of the screen to include/cover the onscreen buttons. It's awesome that we can choose to swipe up on the dock to launch, this would complete the look of the dock by giving us the "option" to cover the on screen buttons as well if we want ;-)

          Desktop:
          - Classic (current)
          - Ripple (like on Google Now Launcher and most scrolling sections on Android)
          - Same scroll animation (the scroll animation you use between pages will pull out a little bit)
          - Custom scroll animation (pick a different scroll animation)
          - None

          App drawer:
          - Same scroll animation
          - Custom scroll animation (current, set to Simple)

            • Make a more robust icon theming system

              I find myself searching Google for good icon sets. I don't have a good database of them, like Wallbase.cc for wallpapers. I'm not saying you're the ideal organization to provide that solution, but considering your relationship with my icons, it wouldn't be entirely inappropriate for you guys to do this.

              This is more of an idea than a request. So... whatever. Just wanted to say it.

              • Quick access dock with going to launcher

                I know this one is a little more unusual but I think it would be cool to have a quick shortcut to the dock without going to the launcher.

                Samsung added a new feature to their jellybean rom that allows multiwindow from long press back. This also serves as a quick access to your choice of apps, sort of a dock that overlays the current app similar to the switcher.

                This might be out of your scope but a shortcut that is accessed by home double press or similar that brings up the dock from the desktop would be pretty…

                • stock camera causes major glitches

                  Opening the stock camera , or any app (I believe) which forces orientation changes, causes the desktop icons to shrink temporarily. It also negates the horizontal padding for the first dock page AND hides the uninstall /app info / edit button usually displayed at the top of the screen when you go to add an app to the home screen. It is repeatable, annoying and a major bugbug. The only way to fix it is to restart nova... Each. And. Every. Time.

                  • recent documents live folder/shortcut/widget

                    Recent documents live folder/shortcut/widget or whatever you call it. just as simple as the stock launcher would do is great enough.

                    The lack of this feature discourages me to switch to nova.

                    Thanks

                            Folders should have the same size as the icons of applications like Go Launcher, it's much nicer !!!

                                • Fix compatibility with go theme for icons

                                  Ever since go launcher's update, nova launcher is unable to read/use the icons from the go launcher themes. I suggest you to make nova launcher more compatible with the go launcher themes =)
