        Possible to swipe up on apps to go to specific app shortcuts?

        I use the swipe up on icons to do a lot of tasks, and cant find a way to set the new long press app shortcuts (e.g. Start Activity on Google Fit) on swipe up as well

        Thanks for the feature.
        The only way to access the shortcut is to hold on to the icon is it possible to make it that you could swipe on the icon

        Apo shortcuts are working on desktop only. They should work in app drawer too. If they work in app drawer, it would be great.

        Running 5.0-beta9b.

        It would be nice if it was obvious which apps had 'full' shortcut support (e.g. phone app / messaging app / PocketCasts) and which will just show the Edit/Remove/App info/Uninstall.

        In a way similar to TeslaUnread's icon change, can we get a visual indicator option? That'll save hours of long-click nope, long-click nope, oh update for app, long-click nope.

        I would like to see this feature, but I don't want to lose the other long press options like app info or edit. So I think there must be one more shortcut for these options

        totally agree with John, this is a must have update to keep Nova at the forefront of launchers. This is the one feature that got me back to try the Google/Pixel launchers but lack of customisation that I take for granted with Nova brought me back

        Action Launcher 3 has an implementation now. Now that the 7.1.1 beta has just come out this should be prioritized more for feature parity.
