First please note you can completely remove the tab bar now, Settings > Drawer > Tab Bar

This version fixes the loosing of home screen apps. But... now sometimes the SD card doesn't initialize. Only after shutdown and boot it appears after a while.

For those of you having issues with app search not opening the keyboard:

1) What device/android version/rom/keyboard are you using?
2) How do you open app search (pull to search, button in the tabbar, gesture with nova action?)
3) Does it open if you wait like 5 seconds without touching anything?
4) Did you ever use appsearch on Nova 3.3? Did the keyboard reliably open there?

Is it possible to turn off the screen without adding an turn off screen app? Perhaps dubbeltap on the screen in gestures to turn off?
