  1. Ability to have subfolders (Folders in folders)

    Would be very helpful to organize apps.

      • Smoother Zoom/Dézoom for the Drawer animation

        Or the ability to set the animation speed especially for this animation effect when home/app drawer/home.
        It stutters a little bit...

        • Option to hide Folder Names on Homescreen

          We have the option to disable all icon text on the homescreen, but I'm looking for the feature to disable only the text below a folder, as my custom icons handle that fine for me.

          • folder animations

            I'm using simple text icon creator to create vertical text icons to use as folder icons. The idea is that you place them on one side of the screen and when you click it it animates opening by sliding horizontally across the screen. Almost like a jquery animation. Tough to explain without building a quick web app as a demo.

              • make it so you can edit custom drawers after their initial set up

                E.g. favorites, make it so you can add new apps to that drawer

                  • hide/show dock gesture for tablets

                    Now we have the option to show or hide the dock for tablets, we would need a gesture to be able to show or hide it straight from the desktop. A dock button at the bottom of the homescreen (close to the nav bar on tablets) would be real cool, but at the least please create a hide/show dock Apex Action so we can map it to one of the homescreen gestures.

                    Also it would be really cool if the dock had a fly in/out animation and it had a shadow background similar to when the recent apps come out.

                    • Easily restorable alternative homescreen setups

                      It would be handy to have 2 or more easily restorable alternative setups so you could have completely different home screens arrangements and quickly switch between them, eg. different grid /widget arrangement for work and weekend or phone and tablet mode

                      • Remove delay of drawer button haptic feedback

                        Problem: Currently there is a noticeable delay between pressing the drawer button and the haptic feedback execution. This creates a perception of "lag" and disconnect between the users input and perceived output.
                        Solution: Execute haptic feedback on keypress with no delay to improve perceived feedback by user (maybe only when the desktop is locked if you want to prevent double haptic feedback upon long pressing the drawer button, although I do not think this will be a problem).

                        • Add option to clone/copy folder

                          Add an option to the 'long-press' menu on a folder: clone folder.
                          If you want to have the same folder on multiple home screen, but don't want it on the launcher dock, it would be great to have an option to clone an existing folder.
                          Another solution would be to be able to save a folder to Apex Settings and add it from the add shortcut/widget menu. Would come in handy when changing ROMs

                              • Remain the raster grid size on rotation

                                Most of the devices have a 16:10 or 16:9 display resolution and this means one part is always longer than the other.
                                I want to reflect this in the Apex homescreen settings like 6 x 5 (Portrait grid) and 5 x 6 (Landscape grid) for example.
                                The problem is that it won't order it right. Look at the the photos I have taken: https://plus.google.com/u/0/104777040641907022472/posts/ifErvKcVqvo

                                    • Keep your launcher very, very fast.

                                      While I love all the add ons people are suggesting I would hate to see Apex Launcher go through the typical 3rd party Android launcher cycle of working great when it first comes out but then getting bogged down and buggy in future releases when trying to cater to everyone suggestions for improvement.

                                      Very fast and extremely smooth is what I look at when installing a launcher. Not a crazy amount of features that I may or may not use.

                                        Could you add a hidden dock and having gestures control when the dock appears. also have the dock auto close when you open the apps in the dock. This is the only thing keeping me from switching from adw ex. I only use one screen and i hate having more than one dock and the swyping left or right to access them.
