I most likely wont. I might look at different alternatives but not folders.

The Shelf apps behave differently than the Apps in the App Drawer. Their basically reflections so actions differ from their counter parts.

In the App Drawer, long click on an app and when the popup menu appears, slide over the shortcuts list (bottom action list) until you see the Favorites action. When the dialog appears, select a shelf favorite position (1-5), set a title (optional, for the popuo window) and set it.

I'm working to make the popup menu more user interactive in the next update. That's what is taking up much time atm. I didn't want the menu to behave like the pixel launcher where it stretches itself across the screen to fit options, i wanted it to be compact and interactive with the user. When you ask the question (how do I do this), that juat tells me i tackled that specific feature incorrectly.

Seeing an Android Go user excites me btw!


Many thanks.

Was easier than I thought, much happier now.

This by far the best third party launcher I've used on my Nokia android go device, no lag, slow downs or graphic glitches, working fast, fluid and very stable.

Many thanks.

The only down side to Android Go is no notification badge indicators as its not supported by Android Go or At A Glance widget by Google. The widget and notification access is limited but still enjoyable.

That's not an issue to me.

I never used notification dots / badges / unread counts on my previous Nokia 3 in launchers like Lawn chair V2 or Nova because Google changed how notifications worked and the dots / badges / counts got cleared when you swiped away a new notification!

I'm pretty sure no one needs a notification sound, a notification in their notification shade, a notification on their lockscreen AND a little dot on the app showing the notification.
Talk about overkill !

I'm very happy with how GCA works and I'm enjoying no graphical glitches and slowdown that I experience in nova or Lawnchair V2.

The one thing I do miss in android go is a swipe right Google feed.

If someone could enable Google Gos discover feed on a third party launcher I would be very happy and impressed!

Slightly off topic, but the Nokia one pluses performance is well on par with my previous Nokia 3 TA 1020 (2017) that came with nougat and updated to Oreo 8.0
It then had another update to Oreo 8.1 which gave it a huge drop off in performance, it was awful.
Unfortunately it got killed to death in a horrific accident with a large John Deere tractor before it got the android One rebrand and update to pie 9.0.
My Nokia 1 plus is a cheap replacement for that phone.

Nokia 3 TA 1020 £129.99 sim free from Carphone warehouse (UK)
Nokia 1 plus TA 1111 £69.99 sim free from Argos (UK)

Please make it available for android 4.4 if possible because i am using a nokia x with nova launcher and it taxes the CPU significantly. 🙏🙏🙏

I will consider but its a very difficult task to maintain stability on older devices and see what the lowest sdk some of the libraries i use that support 4.4 as well.

Adding additional icon pack control as an upcoming feature in the next update.

Those of you who have taken the time to submit feedback, thank you very much. We should expect a new update by the end of the month.
