Wow. I come on here after many many months, and I see this...

The post is "160w" old... I checked. Jellycar 3 has since been taken down.

I loved that game on my iPod touch. I would buy it again.

This just made me sad. :(

Back again. Firstly, Widget sizing is still broken; the drag to resize box does not snap to anything whatsoever.

Also, things like Dashclock, Google Now cards, and other things which change their content depending on the size you make the widget are all broken; showing their "the widget is small" versions even when resized to be quite large. (For example, my app grid is 4x5. I have to resize DashClock to at least 4x3.5 to have it show extensions at all, which is EXTREMELY annoying.)

Also, landscape mode is broken in the app drawer. It does not take the navigation bar into account when calculating padding, and therefore the navbar covers the menu button.

I KNOW the widgets can be fixed, because they sized correctly before materinova.

Get ready for a long one...

HTC One M8 100% Stock ROM.
(Using the built in font switcher, though)

Alright! Just got the new beta, and already noticed a few bugs.
Firstly, it isn't possible to change the text size in folders. It ignores the selected size and stays at "medium".
EDIT: FIXED!

Secondly and third, Widget resizing is a bit glitchy, when you pull the resize borders, they just stay on the screen. For example, in the screenshot I posted, I moved the white borders, stopped touching the screen, then took the shot. Also, DashClock isn't showing its full info range, where it did before the update, as shown in the last screenshot.

Lastly, the "tap and hold to unlock" pop up that appears when you have your desktop locked works, but the little Lollipop tap to hold animation should sync up with how long you need to hold the button; it would just make things look smoother.

And, suggestion time, while some people like the widgets in their own separate area, I would appreciate a toggle to put them back into the app drawer.

Speaking of the app drawer, it looks... different. I don't know if the app border widths were slightly modified, but its weird.

But hey, this is what a beta is for!

Still the best launcher!

EDIT:
It seems most of my issues are caused by a loss of border control. Or, control over border widths. For example, dock height and border width in the app drawer.

Me, attempting to test Google Now on my new phone in a place it doesn't work:

"OK Google"
nothing happens
..."OK Google"
(From somewhere that isn't my phone)*Beep beep!"
"Wait, my phone isn't..."

looks down at old phone, now waiting for search command

Oh.

New profile picture. I never use TheCanadianGamer11 anymore, so having a picture relating to "Techdisk", my chosen username for everything, is better.
