Hi there,
I keep getting huge battery drain on my Nexus 4; Kit Kat. Today I had to charge twice. Talon: 51% of battery. Not sure what happened, but it's the second time I've had to uninstall Talon on the Nexus 4. My Tab 3 8.0 appears fine.

Hi there,
I'd really appreciate either forced portrait or the option to lock for the launcher. On my Nexus 4 landscape goes to the keyboard screen. Not so helpful.

Also, can I donate to remove all ads? That's my preferred token of appreciation/purchase.

Thanks!

Thank you! :-)

Incredible. I didn't expect to be able to buy this series since it is a Netflix produced TV show. If I ever kill my Netflix subscription, I'll definitely keep this in mind. One of the best TV series I've ever seen.

Man, do I ever disagree. The British Series of the same name (that it attempted to copy) was infinitely more compelling and 'real.' I actually found this fairly feeble.

Hi,
First of all, loving cloak mode and the current state of the app. It just makes sense and is the first launcher I've tried since Slidescreen which has felt considered and original.

Two comments and a consideration:
- I'd still appreciate the ability to force portrait. Cloak mode fixes the problems with rotation but it's a minor reference issue for me (very minor, but worth mentioning), where I tend to return the screen to portrait before I start launching. Odd perhaps and I might be alone, so I'll leave it there.

- the options to call and message a contract are hugely helpful. I'd like a third: to be able to open the contract. This would allow emails to be written or other apps launched.

Consideration
I have the Kit Kat search launcher as my second launcher. Mostly because I really like the swipe to Google Now. I was wondering if left and right gestures could be added which can open apps. So I could swipe to Google Search on one side and the dialler to another.

Just an idea.

Also the last update became crashy on my nexus 4. I reinstalled and it's fine. But I might not have sent a report. I'm sorry. Tab 3 seems fine.

Great ideas and comments Sam, I'll try to add as much of these capabilities to the coming versions.

+1 to remove the ads. Really confused me.

It's our office local, so I know it quite well. The food is okay. Not terrible. Burger Wednesdays are decent value. They have a drinks loyalty card which is worth asking for.

Great food, wonderful flavours. Decor is a bit tired, but good for a tasty meal.
