    • ability to add an app drawer short cut to the nav bar.

      Some rooms allow you to designate custom short cuts in the nav bar. Like the app drawer, toggle notification bar, show/hide notification bar etc.

              • Apply Contact Picture to Homescreen Shortcut

                Along with the current Edit Icon methods, please add an option to take the contact photo of a specific contact. This would allow to make much cleaner Direct Dial/Message shortcuts that are currently too small and have info force-placed on them.

                  • power shortcuts.

                    Let us add shortcuts that toggle flashlight, wifi, bluetooth, airplane mode and so on, that way it 1) can be added to the dock and 2) be skinned after personal prefs, EASILY, only needing an icon/image file!

                      • Small IOS style folder icons

                        Could you add a smaller sized IOS style folder icon ?
                        Same size as the folder icons in the "Folder Organizer" app would be great.

                        • Could support the NAVIGATION BAR when Tablet Mode (<195dpi) on Galaxy Nexus?

                          on Galaxy Nexus or other Mobile, Tablet Mode (<195dpi) will not appear the navigation bar.

                          and there's still no any Launcher support to show nav bar in Tablet Mode for Mobile.

                          could Apex Launcher support it?

                          ps: there's the code about ICS for SHOW NAV BAR for the mobile in tablet mode, maybe helpful:

                                • 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.
