Whenever I open up the App drawer or quick drawer on the left for apps, it spins forever without ever showing me my apps. I've tired restarting Action Launcher 3, and even removing and reinstalling it, and this bug persists

I've been encountering this bug for a while, which is forcing me to switch to a different launcher. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.

Has anyone else encountered this? My previous Samsung Galaxy S6 never had this issue.

When running with no Top Control, it's impossible to remove widgets (unless I'm missing something), since there no "X Remove" label when dragging a widget around, and no "App Info" when dragging/dropping in the same place, as with apps.

For now, to remove a widget, I have to temporarily enable any Top Control, drag the widget to the Remove label, then switch back to no Top Control.

As requested from my previous post with the missing content from the collapsed notification.
This is what the parts for normal notifications looks like.

There seems to be a clicking noise when you write with the stylus. Is that coming from the stylus itself? Does the tip make the noise?
That noise might be annoying if I were using this in a class or meeting situation, and everyone else could hear it.

I have an Android Wear watch (the Moto 360), and I'm able to pause/play and adjust the volume up and down, but I can't skip forward, or 30 seconds back, which is available in the notification shade widget.

I'd love to be able to skip forward or back from my watch, as that's one of the primary uses I have when listening to audio apps on my phone.

+Michael Seifollahi Actually, I do see the Skip Forward button on my 360. It may have been that I previously checked on an audio piece that was not skippable.

This app has saved my bacon a few times
 
We've all been there: your phone goes missing while set to silent, and you're left digging through every nook and cranny in the house. The next time this happens to you, download Android Device Manager from Google Play (http://goo.gl/EWIKL9) or visit https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager, and you'll be able to find your phone in no time. #AndroidTricks

I'm finding that the notification is blank when it's in the collapsed state. It's fine when it's extended, but nothing is showing when it's collapsed.

It is set to show 4 events in collapsed mode.

CNN's headline/photo combo doesn't sit well with me. It's not wrong... or distasteful. Just... I would have picked something different. 

"Looks to me like he's bro fisting his own death" lol I couldn't have explained my first reaction any better. Thanks +Daniel Watson

One of my favorite supermarkets. They have a lot of imported goods from the US and Europe.

Beautiful hotel in a great part of town. Accessible to many attractions, and quite affordable. The rooms weren't clean and comfortable. Highly recommended.

Lots of fun, and a fantastic view of Vegas! I recommend going when it's dark, so you can experience the lights of the city.

The hotel is clean and very convenient to the Cathedral. The rooms are a bit small, and the wifi isn't great.

Pretty good for the price. Not super luxury, but the location on the strip is very good.
