I suggest you ...

could increase UI customization

It's more superficial, but it would be nice to be able to adjust background alpha, customize the background color/image, maybe even include an image import or icon-pack "parse" to theme the icons.

        Portal Group icons should be themed!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Is anything under development with this request?

        When icon packs are used some of the icons aren't always masked. Most of the icon packs have an option to mask the unmasked icons manually. This feature isn't possible inside swipepad. Would be great with a fix for this.

        I agree with this, it's a victim of it's own success, because I use it so much so I want to customise the UI more.

      • Christopher Ross commented  · 

        The addition of custom backgrounds would be awesome. I have used this app for years and I highly recommend it to anyone. Continue to make it awesome.

        Bottom line, change all the UI. Make a new UI with a lot of new animations

      • Bean commented  · 

        Make the size of the portal- its margins & the wasted space between the icons thinner. Or at least have the option to do so. Icons & cursor should have the ability to change sizes. THX!

        It would be nice if you could set some transparency to the background, instead of the black screen

      • Maxim commented  · 

        And please make icons'size customizable

      • Maxim commented  · 

        Get rid of those circles behind apps' icons - it looks really ugly

      • John commented  · 

        I would like to be able change the length of time before a portal is edited. I find 2 seconds too quick for me as it often goes into edit mode when I want to run the portal.

        Great app.I have bought the add ons.

      • SiberiusX commented  · 

        Since the background is plain black it can give some visual strain/shock when used a lot, as most apps are white. I suggest allowing some transparency in such a way to make the app look more like an overlay. Moreover it would be nice to add the choice of background colours.

        Thank you for the beautiful app.

        I have an icon pack theme applied on my launcher and almost all my apps icons are different from stock, but swipepad unfortunately only displays the stock icons, which makes the experience a bit awkward, so would love to have it displaying my custom icons.

      • Marcos commented  · 

        That's exactly how I feel. I have been using swipepad for 2 years and even though I love it, I kinda got sick of the same layout...

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        I would like an option to change icon titles. For instance, I have a few different email apps on my Nexus7. The Gmail one is named correctly, but the one linked to my Hotmail says Outlook by default, and I'm using the native email app to get my work email and I'd like to rename that to indicate which email it will bring up. Thank you for considering my suggestion.

      • Björn Lindahl commented  · 

        I second the ability to choose to have the app name below the icon. It's very confusing when they're below the icon in the rest of the system but not on the SwipePad.

      • Brian Kai commented  · 

        Yes! Custom icons, icon sizes, and background alpha! :-)

      • Abhay commented  · 

        To have icon packs of Go launcher themes would be great for customization!

      • Abhay commented  · 

        One idea I would like to put forward, is that normally a pad is just an overlay. What if, there is an option to have a window which stays on the screen or in the form of a pop-up which is scrollable?

      • Martin commented  · 

        I agree with most of the comments here, I'd love to be able to use an icon pack that's already been applied to the system. Like a nova/apex icon pack. And a choice to change titles to under/over/invisible. And perhaps another background as well. Cheers!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        If I could just place the titles under the icons, that would be awesome.
