Not every Android device uses what I call “stock Android.” My Nexus phone and tablets do, which is where I first noticed the new, improved apps drawer.

On All The Time

Should you leave your computer on all the time? Isn’t that a waste of energy? Sure it is, but that doesn’t deter people such as myself from leaving their PCs on 24/7.

Occasionally, I browse the Apps Drawer on my Android gizmos. It never ceases to surprise me when I find something new, something that wasn’t there last time that I checked. The most recent example of which is the Street View app.
