Next Nexus ditches Android app drawer?
With the next Nexus phones around the corner, the new Android operating system is also up for a refresh. Are Google really ditching the app tray?
According to the latest leak it certainly looks as though one of the things I love about stock ‘droid is about to disappear.
The days of our good friend, the app drawer, are numbered it seems.
Just have a look at these gifs!
The new approach to organising apps still kinda retains the app drawer. In the new version, instead of the familiar little icon in the middle of the bottom dock, now has an up arrow signifying that the user can swipe up to reveal. Doing so, pulls up the list of apps with one of Google’s swanky page transition effects.
Oh yeah, this leak also reveals that the home screen has changed too. You see, instead of the usual Google search box there’s now a G for Google tab that pulls out the search box. That’s nicely neat.
What do you think about these updates?
