    I liked it but can I just disable the counter? Apps keep on moving in the dock even when sticky. And at least make it 6 columns?

  28. Wall Fur-avatar

    No way to lock apps to dock in specific positions which is annoying, I don't want my four most-used apps to change order all the time. App drawer isn't very polished. It's very light.
