LG Aristo App Drawer / Menu – How to get to Apps

There is no need of app drawer in Android. After all, iOS is always without an app drawer since the very beginning. The multiple home screens can accommodate as many apps you want.

Still, when I got the LG aristo for the first time I kept on looking for app drawer. After all, we’re so used to it that we feel at home even if it means an extra step to get to the app.

LG tried to follow the footsteps of apple and kept the default home screen without app drawer. But don’t worry in LG aristo there are 2 more home screen modes one with app drawer and the 3rd one is easy home. So try all the 3 homes and use the one you’re most comfortable with.
