    • New transition effects

      Anything at all, there just needs to be something new in that area. Adding 2-3 new fun transitions will make this launcher really pop!

        • Rotate search/dock in Landscape from top/bottom to left/right

          I'd like for Apex to mimic how the new Jellybean 4.2 launcher rotates the persistent search and dock from the top/bottom of the screen to the left/right.

          Screenshots Provided

          Default Launcher (Portrait): http://imgur.com/LCnr6
          Default Launcher (Landscape): http://imgur.com/NDDMT

          Apex Launcher (Portrait): http://imgur.com/qahpV
          Apex Launcher (Landscape): http://imgur.com/eguFq

          With the search/dock on the left/right, the icons fit better without being squished together.

          • Add Android 5.0 app drawer animation to Apex Launcher

            I would love to see the app drawer animation from android 5.0 launcher added to Apex Launcher. The app drawer opens from the app drawer button and closes to the button as well. You can se how it looks in this video (from 1:25): http://youtu.be/pEDQ1z1-PvU?t=1m25s

            • Better App Drawer Page Managment

              I think it should be easier to move apps around in the app drawer pages without having to go into the settings menu every time you download a new app or what to move an app to a different page. We should be able to drag apps between app drawer pages, and also we should be able to quickly hide apps directly in the app drawer, i.e. there should be a hide option when you tap and hold an icon in the drawer like there is for "uninstall" "app info, and "edit"

                  • configurable sorting for EVERY tab in app-drawer

                    in apex-settings there is the possibility to choose the style of sorting for the app-drawer, but since we are abled to make our own multiple tabs in app-drawer, these tabs should sohuld be configurable so that they have their own style of sorting.

                    some examples of usage:
                    -)my "ALL"-tab would be sorted alphabetically
                    -)my "GAMES"-tab sorted my most used
                    -)i would have a "NEW"-tab with only non-grouped apps which would be sorted by install-date descending, so the last installed app would show first in this tab.

                    greetz,

                    sUsH667

                    • Make a tema with Nova

                      Why don't you merge the effort with Nova team?
                      Together you can make an unbeatable launcher.
                      You have both great ideas and also if you merge the one already released it results a AWESOME LAUNCHER!

                      • Support Cyanogenmod CM9 Theme Chooser Themes

                        Dont know if this is a limitation of the cm9 theme chooser or what but i imagine it wouldnt be too tricky to implement if you contacted the dev behind it (i believe it is: https://plus.google.com/115049428938715274412/)

                                Would be nice if we could "Pin" widgets/icons to the main homescreen to prevent them from moving when switching between home screens. Sliding left or right would force the pinned widget to remain on all homescreens and not transition with the unpinned widgets or icons.

                                  • Allow 1x1 Widgets in (Homescreen) Folders

                                    Similar to the already implemented "Allow 1x1 Widgets in the Dock".

                                    With this, a user would be able to add 1x1 Widgets (Browser Bookmarks, SManager Scripts, Individual Contacts, etc) into folders, even alongside regular apps.

                                    • More features for Backup & Restore

                                      1. Host Apex Settings and Background data in the cloud
                                      2. A Cloud backups section with Multi-Backup as an option (like GO Launcher)
                                      3. Multi-Backup setting can combine Apex Settings and Background data backups with the ability to add a name and date of each backup.

                                      This can be helpful for users that own multiple Android devices with different screen sizes.
                                      Say I want to see all my backups in an organized list with name and date so I can restore the correct backup to a specific device.

                                      E.g: Nexus7 CM10 14-08-12

                                        From the same interface where you hide apps from the app drawer, you would be able to edit the name of an app and change its drawer icon.

                                        • Password protected TABs (App Groups) in the App Drawer in addition to Multiple, configurable TABs

                                          e.g. you could create a "Private" or "Social" Tab and when you click on it. it asked for a 4digit password or swipe password.
