      • App inside the folder still can be alter even when Lock is enabled

        When desktop is locked, one could still sort the icons inside the folder in app drawer, and worst, even remove the whole folders, thereby release all the apps inside it to app drawer. This can't be right when 'Lock' is enabled. Please fix that. Thank you.

          • app draw manual movement

            I might be an idiot but for the life of me i can't find a way to drag apps around the draw like in the standard android launcher only sort by title and such, so if it doesn't exist that would be nice.

            • Page indicator on side of app drawer instead of top or bottom

              When app drawer is set to vertical scroll or vertical paginated, allow the page indicator to be on the left or right side instead of the top or bottom.

                  • Enable pop-up selection box for drag and drop

                    On my phone, the drag and drop does not always work exactly as expected for creating home screen folders. I would appreciate a setting that I could enable that would pop up a selection box that would contain two selections: "Create Folder" & "Move Here" . This would eliminate the frustration I currently experience in trying to correctly do the drag and drop creation of folders.

                    • Make Dock width a little bit larger

                      Include another option to make the dock width a little more larger. Example, making the icons closer together in the dock.

                          • GTasks icon breaks tray...

                            If you add the GTasks 1x1 unread tasks widget to home screen, it does not show up and the icons in the bottom tray disappear and you have to restart Apex launcher to get them back.

                            • "Show notification count" in status bar

                              The status bar in Apex Launcher should support the option to "Show notification count". Cyanogenmod has this option, but when using Apex Launcher the status bar only shows a white circular disc on the icon, as seen in this screenshot https://75680051574fe919dae63e710c0393c747384394.googledrive.com/host/0BxBOCo4qJ8ZrclVtTGJ1V1o1cHc/status_bar_notification_no_count.png . When using another launcher, it looks something like this screenshot https://75680051574fe919dae63e710c0393c747384394.googledrive.com/host/0BxBOCo4qJ8ZrclVtTGJ1V1o1cHc/status_bar_notification_show_count.png

                              • More exaggerated fliping angle in tablet transition

                                Default and tablet transitions are too similar in a phone in portrait orientation. I think that the flip angles in tablet transition for this case should be wider so that the tablet effect is more noticeable.

                                      • Allow themes to change homescreen grid size.

                                        One could create a theme that would completely redesign the homescreens.

                                        • 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.
