  • perhaps I'm not understanding the question - I can't quite see how a lens will improve matters. Are you after a one key solution (a keyboard shortcut) that does the same as super + w ?

  • I would like to have something like gnome-shell. You press super and you have a lens that show you the running apps (and also the workspaces, if possible)

No, there's no such thing, and that wouldn't be possible the way lenses work now.

I also don't really see why you would want to run it inside a lens. Think it would be better to simply add scale and workspace switcher to the corners and use them as they are, or use buttons on the launcher or something. That should be possible now, though you'd have to use less user friendly tools to configure it.
