Default Sideload apps disappear

Have a Galaxy Gear, non-root.. default launcher

sideloaded 2 different calculator apps and they both disappear shortly (for sure after a watch reboot, but it might in fact disappear even earlier)

i saw some post telling to backup and restore after.. is there any easier way to make sure all sideload app stays there?

Notice that Gear Manager -> Application does not show any sideload app.. is that the reason?

thanks

Your sideloaded non-gear certified apps will disappear once you open Gear Manager. Gear manager does not support non-Gear certified apps.

If you need Gear Manager to adjust some settings, then Just set whatever you need in Gear Manager, back out. Then restart your Gear.

All your sideloaded apps will remain in the launcher as long as you don't open Gear Manager.

This needs to be a sticky, too many people ask the same question in a day.

Why don't people use search these days?

Please Thanks if it helped!

Thanks.. sorry.. I did search but didn't find the answer .. thanks for telling me the "feature" of Gear manager.. I hope someone can come out with a permanent solution.. honest.. Gear really don't have enough app.. and missed some key app (like calculator)...I wouldn't want to sideload if they have the "basic" one on their store.

thanks
