hey all,

im a lefty, and unless im watching something i hold my tab in portrait which on my phone (z2) is fine since the app drawer icon is at the bottom, but on the tablet its top right in the most inconvenient place. does anyone know a way to reposition it without using another launcher? im rooted and have xposed installed, would be fantastic if there was a mod to fix this annoyance.

cheers in advance.

Yes i've posted about an alternate method to get in the drawer as well. I'd love to just set up a gesture or something but haven't found anyway to do that either.

Yea, it's pain in the A. On ios there are some cydia tweaks that let you set press/slide gestures to control apps and system settings, something like that would be nice. Or of cause Sony could think ahead for once and allow you to move the blood thing

I don't understand why you guys are so fixated on using the Sony launcher. Nova Launcher is so much more flexible and works more fluidly at that.

I don't really know why tbh, I kinda like to keep things simple. I may give nova a try, I'm not really a fan of flashy launchers with an overload of animations though

Nova is absolutely un-flashy - it's like stock AOSP launcher with more settings possibilities...

Just wanted to say thanks for the heads up. Nova is really nice. Very old school stock android style, I like it allot. And the best part....the app drawer launcher is in the middle for both portrait and landscape.

Thanks again.

I use Nova Prime on everything else, but I really like Sony's options for the app drawer.
