  1. Bring back proper wallpaper stretching from 1.02

    Newer versions do not stretch the wallpaper to the bottom of the nav bar, it stops half way. This looks bad with a transparent navigation bar. Half of the bar shows the wallpaper, the other half is the "no wallpaper" color which is usually black. I call it the half black bar of hate.

      • Clean up "Fly in/out" pinch preview transition effect

        I really like the "Fly in/out" transition effect for the home screen previews (when you "pinch") but the effect isn't quite "there" yet. It's not as clean/smooth as the effect used on LauncherPro (which is what I migrated from). May I suggest trying out LauncherPro and seeing what I mean?

        Examples:

        1) Existing home screen shouldn't just disappear first, and should instead shrink down smoothly to its position on the resulting preview page.

        2) Chosen home screen from preview should in-turn smoothly expand to the full screen. Right now, the ENTIRE preview set expands until chosen home screen then appears.

          • Add glow effect on app drawer icon press (like Trebuchet)

            In CM9, the Trebuchet launcher has a cool glow effect when you hit the app drawer icon. It glows like hell, and this would be a perfect touch for Apex, which is already the best launcher for ICS.

            • Ability to hide notification bar using gestures

              An example would be to swipe up to hide/show notification bar. The ability to hide the notification bar is present just not utilized by gestures.

              • Continuous Vertical Scrolling Widgets in App Drawer.

                • allow other apps to use apex actions as shortcuts

                  Applications such as desktop Visualizer, simple text, minimalistic text, etc. This helps in home screen customization.

                  • Overlapping widgets, add shadow under the icons and change the order of homescreens like in other launchers

                    Overlapping widgets, add shadow under the icons and ability to change the order of homescreens. Other than that, the launcher is absolutely gorgeous

                      • allow swipe up to bring up the multitasking list.

                        Kind of how it used to work on the Palm Pre.

                        • Allow for the dock to match the size / appearance of a normal home screen row

                          I'd like the ability to specify that the dock matched the size and appearance (ie. visible app names below icons) of a normal home screen row. This would allow for a more uniform layout and also make for nicer screen transitions from other home-screen-style apps which don't support a dock (eg. WidgetLocker).

                                Currently when you set your homescreen amount to 1 you can still scroll left and right, it just hangs on an empty screen for half a second and jumps back.

                                • With infinate scrolling desktop have wallpaper infinate scroll too

                                  Currently desktop icons all move smoothly with transition effect.
                                  with 3 homescreens with infinate scroll , from screen 3 round to screen 1 the background wallpaper SNAPS into place rather than use the smooth transition.
                                  have the wall paper act as one continuous ribon all the way around.
                                  Thanks Dev, best launcher etc

                                  • Activate different screens for different when changing the screen orientations:

                                    Some android screens have a very rectangular design. In this case it is imposible to have a widget layout which looks fine for both portrait and landscape. It would be nice to have different desktops and wallpapers for each orientation.

                                    • Drag and drop: move applications instead of creating folders

                                      When you drag an application on the home screen and you want to drop it at a place where already an application is it should be possible to automatically move the application one step to the side so that it is possible to rearrange applications on a full screen but still make it possible to create folders.

                                      • Persistent Widgets

                                        Not sure if this is even possible, but maybe a way to set a widget to be persistent so when you scroll through your home screens it stays in place much like the persistent search bar does.

                                          I like saving a web page to the home screen as a shortcut. Building a bookmark library is overkill.
