  1. Tasker plugin for the Nova actions and configuration options.

    It would be really awesome if Nova will provide a plugin for Tasker for better automation of our smartphones. Really miss the possibility to enable/disable launcher screen rotation when I put the phone into the car dock. I have to do it manually or I have to keep it on all the time, what I don't like.

        • 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.

          • Please bring back the widget tab...

            Dear developers,
            I love and use the Nova Launcher now for a very long time and have always been satisfied. Even now, I have almost nothing to complain about. But lately I miss the option to display the widgets in the app launcher. I would be very grateful if you could add these tiny optional setting. I think and hope that this is not asking too much. I have already purchased the Pro Key, but a donation in the amount of $ 10 would be me also value.
            With best regards,
            B. Franz

              • New app drawer list-view with letters in the side.

                We see it in Aviate, Action Launcher and some other random apps.

                It's this: http://i.imgur.com/8dr3r1Y.png

                It's so convenient to press the letters, instead of sliding to find the exact letter. Don't have to remove current, maybe just add a fourth option in settings.
                In a few hours there's already a lot of support from the Google+ community: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+MartinSanton/posts/QvtC4Jscywq

                "Then use Aviate or Action Launcher" .. But I love Nova?

                Thanks for an awesome launcher no matter what.

                • Fix pin action note for Note 4

                  Nova breaks the ability to "pin" action notes to the home screen like you can with TW on the Note 4. Nova actually completely removes the pin icon from the action note. This is a huge deal and may force many Note 4 users to stop using Nova if it isn't corrected

                    • Donation button

                      Every time there is a discussion about Nova Launcher Prime, people talk about what good value it is and that if they could give more money to the developer, they would. How about adding a donate option on the "About" page of the app?

                          • Allow wallpaper change in Night Mode

                            When Night Mode is set to Auto on it would be good if my wallpaper could also automatically change. I could for example have a bright wallpaper by day and a dark wallpaper after sunset.

                            • Please make the vertical scrolling similar to android Marshmallow.

                              With persistent app search toolbox at the top and the ability to scroll using the alphabet - the same as in list view.

                                • 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!

                                    Just like multipicture live app. The app doesn't work with your launcher :(

                                    • 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 =)

                                      • TW like dots above the"Dock" for screen access

                                        The only thing I miss from Samsung Touchwiz, is the ability to quickly go from any screen to another by just tapping the dots in the bottom. Pretty convenient specially if you wanna from one screen to another one that is 4 or more swipes away.
