I have used this for years and it has been great. I like the flexibility of making small tiles and sweeping the app drawer left and right amount others. Very recently I lost the ability to do split screen, which I use a lot. If I switch to the system launcher it is no problem. Please fix. oneplus8T latest update (which is probably when the problem started)

Now have the Pixel 6 Pro and things have gotten worse. There are problems with the recently used button, the home screen goes blank and numbers are gone forever. The new update, Version 7 has caused more issues than it helped. A lot of icons that never had numbers, now do. Facebook & Instagram no longer have numbers most of the time. All the icons are difficult to see what they are. And support blames everything but their app. It's too bad that a great app has gone down hill. Very sad.

I will update the review if I can get help. I am old school and don't like being forced to do things a different way. For the most part I can get used to the launcher IF you can remove the widget at the bottom. It started with a search widget but can only be REPLACED and not removed. I keep hitting it by accident when trying to get in the app drawer. I really need folders IN MY APP DRAWER but will not put up with antics just to get that feature. I will give this 24 hours before uninstalling.
