Would it be possible to fit the market shortcut back into the app draw? maybe near the settings icon? I kinda liked that, and used it all the time.

Nice! I like where this is heading. I would love too see the ability to choose how many home screens to have, and the ability to create folders in the app drawer (10p sale has filled it right up!)

There's a problem with the icons, whatever I changed it wont register and it restored back to default every reboot. I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but I've tested it few times already.

Running MCR5 with Franco's kernel.

If you hit the menu icon the first thing in the drop down is a market link

Some bugs
First of all thanks for this great mod, I think it has great potential.

After setting up my Homescreens I found some bugs.

1. If I disable wallpaper scrolling after some time the wallpaper isnīt anymore centered.

2. After a reboot, there are some widgets disappeared from the Homescreens. After readding the widgets, this happens again after a reboot.

3. One time happend (after switching from market back to homescreen) that the searchbar widget comes back on top of my homescreens and it overlaps it with my widgets.

If I find another bugs, I will report them again.

Thanks again and keep working on it!


Edit: The issue under 2 appears when u add the widgets the 'old way' by long-pressing on home screen. If u add them through the app drawer they are still there after a reboot.

I had this problem with ADW too, I'm using repacked ITL41F with stock kernel. So it doesn't appear to be unique to Nova Launcher

Great launcher but I've got a couple of suggestions:

Although everyone seemed to hate the search bar at the top I'd kinda got used to it and now miss it so an option to keep it there would be great.

How about having a homescreen Scroll effect the same as the one in the app drawer?

Other than that keep up the good work!

Excellent, I've been looking for something that would essentially just remove the search bar

However 2 things would be great
1) An option to set the number of home screens
2) For some reason I can't use Desktop Visualiser to replace the stock icons at the bottom. On the ICS launcher I can choose "Desktop VisulizR" to add a custom shortcut, small enough to replace Phone, Contacts etc. But for some reason this widget doesn't show in Nova launcher.

Great work, looking forward to full release.

Just drag an icon to the homescreen and long press it. Hit edit, and you can select a custom icon from the gallery or an icon pack.
