Just a suggestion, if it isn't implemented..would it be possible to change the spacing between placing widgets? Like by default on holo launcher 2.2+, when the search widget gets placed on top and when the power control widget is placed below it, there's a thick gap in between. Would it be possible to shrink that gap and can that be done on holo launcher 2.2+ as well? Also, for holo launcher 2.2+, could you do the same for the widgets tab as well? Root needed for 2.2-2.3/3.0 but not for 4.0/4.1

Edit: adding on, not sure why root would be needed for ICS devices for adding widgets from the tab as they're already there by system's default. Actually, as for spacing, maybe you can push the search bar to be a little higher so that it's a little closer to the status bar like that of ICS/JB, that way you can have an extra row of placing icons making it 4 instead of 3

Installed and running good so far. But i have some questions. When i go to add a widget from the drawer tab a popup tells me that by adding the widget it allows holo launcher to collect any data when i use it. Is this normal and what kind of data are you trying to collect?

And does this launcher collect data when adding widgets by long pressing the home screen? I didnt get a popup by adding it this way.
