How to change the orientation of the application list on your Android

Although it may surprise, in terminals with Android operating system it is not possible natively change the orientation of the application list. This is something that in the “pure” version of Google’s operating system is not implemented, so the Nexus do not allow this, and neither do the models that use a custom interface (such as the Samsung with TouchWiz). Well, we are going to explain how to achieve this in a simple way.

To do this, you have to resort to one of the customization applications that are most used today and, also, with good reason since its quality is unquestionable: Nova Launcher (which, by the way, the full paid version is on sale). With the use of this development, managing to change the orientation of the list of applications you will see that it is very simple and, in addition, the amount of possibilities it offers are very wide.

The first thing is download from Play Store the application in question. You can get it after this paragraph, where are the corresponding links for free work -which is enough- such as the one that has a small cost and that enables all the orientation possibilities of the list of applications:

Then we leave what you have to do to change the orientation of the list of applications in a simple way using the development that we have commented. By the way, there is no danger when doing this, since no information is lost or the operation of the terminal is damaged. A nice touch is that if you don’t like what you’ve done, you can always reverse it.

  • Set Nova Launcher as default use in Settings

Select Settings in Nova Launcher

  • Now press continuously in a place on the desktop where you do not have an icon or widget
  • Select the Settings icon at the bottom
  • Now look for the Applications section and use it. In the list you will find an option called Drawer Style, which you must press
  • Choose how you want the orientation of the application list to be
  • Now just check that everything is exactly how you like it
