Galaxy Note9 - Keep Apps at Your Fingertips with these Settings (SM-N960W)

Your phone has everything you need - A.K.A. all your favorite apps. To see them all, just swipe up or down on your Home screen and you'll be directly taken to the App screen. You can also view your recently opened apps for quick and easy access. But don't worry, if you liked the old setup, there's a way to get the Apps button back that was on older phones.

Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
