    1. Why can't you increase the padding on the launcher so that apps, especially the search bar, can stretch full length?
    2. Make it possible to put the search bar either above or below the dock.
    3. Make the launcher compatible with every icon pack.
    I end up using Lawnchair because of the above issues.

    @Bob C.

    1. For the OxygenOS launcher do you have any thought on adding a transparent app drawer?
    2. (I removed this in case it offends but basically if you're from a certain region that is the region you should be sent too on the app...away from us)
    3. The ability to share a threads link in the community app can only be shared with 3 things, why can't we share just the URL to the clipboard?
    4. Under "Your Profile" there's a part listed "Your postings" shouldn't this say "Your posts" ?
    5. There seems to be an issue with the feedback option of the community app giving errors when posting such as server errors. while it still posts the feedback it doesn't appear in that list and as far as I can see in the community app there is no way to access the feedback portion of the site?
    6. When replying to a thread can we please have some sort of rules on that page and a small FAQ? For example a cupcake comes along see's a new update thread and freaks out cause they don't have it yet. so instead of actually reading the post they make a reply instead going "No update in etc etc" in that screen where they type the reply (or inside the box) can we have something like a "Please read the OP" or "if your post is about an update please be aware that these generally rollout and should be with you within a couple of weeks of the original thread" Something along these lines just to stop the god damn spam!

    Fine my questions:
    1. How do you get inspired to create os, or use other manufacturers' products for this as a base for creating something better and more personal?

    2.Which is your favorite artist?

    Thanks for your work and flexible launcher settings.

    I was wondering when we will be getting tag suggestions and smiley support in the community app itself?

    Only because of these two things (plus sometimes the search problem) i have to use chrome to login.

    Hello can you help me :)

    I found a bug with the launcher: the notification dots doesn't go in the app box.. you open the notifcation on the desktop but still in the app box (this happens for WhatsApp and Messenger)
    Another one: when you change the size of the icons, in the launcher the app box doesn't change until you hide/show the shelf.

    Is anyone having these bugs too?

    I think this launcher needs juste a bit more customisation like Google bar place and shape.

    Why does the Camera app does not allow to click portraits in 18:9.
    I feel 18:9 portraits would look beautiful.

    Hi Jimmy,

    I know a lot of people who own an iPhone because of the superior image quality and user experience on Snapchat.
    Are there any plans to team up with Snapchat and tilt these aspects to a higher level?

    What I wanna know most is... what is the Community app based on, if not custom-coded for the forum, and why do people keep screwing up on image uploads so often?

    Customisable grid
    Removable margins
    Much more gestures and customisable
    A quickview like Action Launcher with an extra page on the right
    Option to view the widget of an app like in Action Laucher

    If you add that, I am in.

    I tried the app two different times and could not bring myself to like the ease of navigation , it just felt cumbersome .
    Maybe I am just a creature of old habit using a browser to visit the forum.

    1. screen saver function needs to be useful. at least make it resemble the Ambient Display whereby we can see alert icons for missed calls and alert icons

    2. Gallery app needs to allow users to zoom in further on any images. just compare the zoom in limit with google photos and u can see the difference immediately.
