Apps, widgets, and shortcuts

When you tap on your home screen, you can access installed apps and choose the apps, widgets, and shortcuts that you want to add to your home screen.
  • The
    Apps
    tab includes a complete list of the apps installed on your device, including apps that you download from the
    Google Play
    store.
  • Widgets
    are like miniature apps that you move to the home screen so you can access your favorite apps and content quickly. For example, the
    BBM
    widget shows a small view of your current chats and the
    Chrome
    bookmarks widget shows the websites that you bookmarked.
  • Shortcuts
    make it easier to perform the tasks that you do the most. For example, if you send a lot of email, you can set up a shortcut that opens an email composer.
