Ok so I have been experiencing some bugs since the last 2 updates on my lg g8x.

First : Thanks for FINALY supporting the darn wallpapers on both screens.... even LG is lacking behind compared to the launcher!

The most annoying issue I have is that when I use the widescreen mode (which put one app on both screens) and exit it then my icons becomes huge. Almost like Windows Phone Tiles or they will become super tiny.
If that is not what is happening then I get my right screen home screen to shrink and I then can't move the widgets etc.
All the issues are fixed by a reboot but it gets annoying to reboot every time I use wide screen.

Other than that, I think the ergonomics is not optimal for dualscreen at the moment.
Having both home screen to be identical or "right handed" in design makes it harder for my left hand so like if the left screen layout could be reversed so that the launcher options face the left instead of the right it would be great :victory_hand:

Same for the time line.
basically I would like on my left screen to have the time line by swiping from left towards right but on the right screen it would be opposite so from right to left.

In other words : just mirror the entire layout instead of making it identical.

More suggestions: For the Bing daily wallpaper, I would like to have the picture spread across both screen instead of having the same on each screen. I think it would be more polish.

Can we also have a more useful "recent" category in the drawer.
Let's say I downloaded idk 10 new apps and can't remember all of their names. Right now we have I think 5 most recent but it also mixes with the recently use.
Instead I would like to separate sections. One for recently used and one for recently installed. More over, it's nice to have the couples recent one but it would be nice to have a toggle to show more in that category.

Alright, I think it's all for now!

I love what you are doing!
Keep up the good work.

Here is an example for the "half screen bug"

I will post a screenshot of the bigger icons when I get the bug next time.

Forgot to mention: Sometimes my Left screen reverts to default lg launcher. If I hit the home button it reverts to Microsoft launcher. (Screenshot included)
I included both the tiny and big icons bug screenshot.

Also, while trying to reproduce the bugs I found a new one still triggered by the widescreen.
From time to time, I can literally loose the entire functionality of one or the other screen and I found a way around it. If I spam the resize button to change from regular to widescreen, I can produce the inverse bug and make it re appear.

One more thing, sometimes I loose half the background in the drawer so I get half of the black transparent square that should cover the whole wallpaper.

Hi, thanks for your feedback! We will look into it and get back to you once we have some progress.
