So importing app icons on the homescreen also cant happen? I mean nova can do that.
Thanks anyway, would have loved to move to this one, but might pass this.
Great work on the UI though! I loved it.

Nova is also based on launcher2/3 source code and any launcher based on that code can do many backwards compatible things. This launcher cannot as its built from scratch. I will look at a possible conversion tool in the future that could do some sort of backport of some data but not all of it. Not a priority atm.

Thank you for the feedback on the UI design. I appreciate it.

The recent updated build i released in the telegram group and gdrive seems to have fixed the random first start crash if anyone encountered it. Crash was being caused by the launcher widget view class i created incorrectly calling context and crashing specific firmware to fail start.
I also added a toggle to disable crash logging as it turned down performance abit by default. You can re-enable this in the developer settings category. I also tweaked the app drawer abit so it updated more accurately when updating/removing packages.

Were making good progress in the pre beta so thank you to those who are putting in alot of feedback. Its gonna help for the playstore beta release.

New Build this weekend.

Ive started working on Groups but nothing functional for the public yet. The Search Sheet is starting to take form and is now testable. Open the Search Sheet , type in something to search and click the google icon to search globally or the playstore icon to search for an app on the playstore. Any searches made will be kept in a list below. clicking on a recent search will throw it in the searchbar. long click on a recent search to delete it. I will be adding app support later on.

Icons have been reworked to use a new scaling system, your icons will look very weird after this update so fix em up in the themes and styles settings.

Launcher badges will now be dismissed from the statusbar (hopefully).

Icons will now be default style on first start. Adaptive icon scale will be smaller by default.

(Remember, if your testing V2 pre beta, it is not available on xda labs or google play yet. You must manually install it from the gdrive link or telegram group. There is alot of confusion right now but all you have todo is read carefully.)

Small bug is the Search history in search sheet is picking up notifications for some reason. Not a whole biggy.
