I suggest you ...

Add swipe to the left for Google Now (Kit kat feature)

In Kit kat, the user is able to swipe to the far left to bring up Google Now. It would be great if this new feature could be added to nova.

        Its the only thing holding me back from setting this launcher as default I need those google now cards, I heard officially google is opening it up soon for third party apps

        "Unfortunately, Google have blocked access to the swipe left for Google Now action for all third party launcher apps at this time."

        Cyanogen 's Trebuchet launcher is able to do this.

        What if it was suggested to Google to make another widget with the same functionality of that pane so you can add it to other launchers, all they would need to do is make it realizable to fit various screens, also it would be nice being realizable so you could put something else with it.

        Who do we yell at, at Google, to request that they open up this functionality?

        Should be an option, when on 1st home screen (with infinite scrolling home screens off). I have seen this on other launchers. The only stipulation is, you have to ptess the back button to exit, no swiping to the left to get back to the home screen.

        My God yes this. It's the only holding me back from unquestionably recommending Nova launcher to anyone who comes my way looking for a change to their Android device.

        Please add this feature, please also make it like the google now launcher so the status bar is transparent with tinting when in the google now screen.

        Please add this feature, if you can't let us know why. You guys have the best launcher around

        Damn. Nova, you guys missed the opportunity to be the first to integrate this uber-popular feature of Google Now launcher. Klinker Apps's Blur launcher has added this feature + released API for devs to integrate their own cards and/or pages to the homescreen. Sounds sweet!
