  1. Ability to change apps icon inside apps drawer

    able to change apps icon inside apps drawer. not just in the home screen. it's just such a waste if you buy icon pack themes with many icons but you can't use it inside the drawer.

    • Vertical scrolling on home screen

      The ability to set your homescreen to be scrolled vertically. Just like the many apps we know (fb, twitter, ....) . No interruptions, no page snaps. Everything set on one page, that you scroll downwards.

      • Search for apps in app drawer

        I saw this in Sense 4 where they have a search button in the app drawer......This is useful when there are a lot of apps installed, it will save up scrolling through pages of apps...

          • OK Google Now

            The only thing I think I feel is missing is the ability to say "OK Google Now" from the homescreen. I would like to see that from the Google Now Launcher make its way here. It's just one swipe, but not having to do it is a huge convenience

            • Two lines for icon text like you get with ADW.

              Two lines of text under an icon when there are two words instead of one line that fades out to ....... when it is too long.

              ADW has the top line in a bigger font than the bottom and slightly overlapping. It looks pretty good.

                • Be able to change the position of the dock

                  Instead of the dock being stuck at the bottom of the screen it would be nice if you could decide where it would go.

                  • smoother scroll between homescreens

                    The scroll from one page to the next seems to consist of two movements, using all homescreen scroll options: the departing screen pauses half-way and then accelerates away. I would like the arriving and departing screens to slide effortlessly into place. the jerky movement that I described suggests poor phone performance, which I know is not the case. Thank you very much.

                        It would be absolutely awesome if you made some launcher specific full page widgets, such as a full page calculator, full page calendar, full page contacts page, full page messaging screen, full page facebook/twitter.

                        Also folders in app door would be sick!

                        • Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean style folder icon stacking (screenshot inside)

                          See what I mean:

                          http://i.imgur.com/h5IKQ.jpg

                          It looks similar like the "Fan" style in Apex Launcher, but it is not the same, and there is a fourth app icon visible, not only three.

                            • gestures on different parts of the homescreen

                              It would be great if I can split the homescreen in half, so that the same gesture can have two different actions when performed on the two halves of the screen.
                              An example of this would be, I currently use the swipe down gesture to open the notification tray (yes, reaching to the top is hard for a big screen device and i have short thumbs). When Android 4.2 comes out, I want to be able to swipe down on the left for notifications and swipe down on the right for quick settings.

                              just a thought.

                                      Hi. Sometimes I want to see the hidden applications. In addition, it would be easy to find if you have many applications. Though rarely I want to see some applications. Please consider this and look at the screenshot.
                                      Thanks. Have a nice day.

                                      • custom app drawer background

                                        Love the transparency in the app drawer, but it would be awesome if we could set a user defined image for the app drawer background (from the gallery or wallpaper packs) and if there was a setting in apex to choose the "saturation" of the user defined app background (I might want a beautiful landscape as a background but want it faded black for example).

                                          I use stack scroll effect and you see lag. So could you please fix that and I'm using SGS3 btw. And please make an option to make animation of app drawer faster. It really is the perfect launcher if you have done all that.
