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.

        This is STILL extremely relevant. Nova needs to have this. This is not a style but a much needed visual aid, to help bring forward the icons.

        These devs are crimals just like Hillary Clinton! If you could put shadow around icons you probably wouldnt buy their icon sets.

        I agree, please add this; I also use an icon pack that makes certain wallpapers unusable.

        Why has this still not been added? This is my only gripe with NL! Icon shadows definitely make a huge aesthetic difference.

        This is well on order. I use Who Icons pack which are completely white rendering light wallpapers useless. Please add!!!

        after years still no shadows...
        On Galaxy s6 now there are shadows (and with mods also on S5). And - hooray - a calendar Icon that shows the actual day and also a clock Icon with actual time on it.

        On the other side, Touchwiz still have no Badge Notification for 3rd party apps like Whatsapp, Viber & Co, but nova do.

        So - If you want to have all the features together, you just have to buy an iPhone.

        What a shame...

        I really don't understand why there is no option for this in Nova... This is pretty basic, actually, and looks great.

        Yes please!
        touchwiz is much more esthetic with this feature. shame you don't have it yet

        I can't believe this idea had not already been implemented! Touchwiz on my Galaxy S6 looks so much better than Nova but Nova has so many excellent features and more customisation. I really hope you take on board this suggestion. Thanks.

        Yes, please add a shadow feature! It would make your launcher so much better!

        Please give shadow behind the icons with customizations, after this NOVA would be the world's best launcher.....
