I have a new Huawei phone purchased in Australia, and I have successfully downloaded apps, which appear under app settings, but there are no shortcuts for the apps nor an option to open them. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you


I'm not sure, but I think that Huawei's launcher is kinda different than others, and I think that it doesn't have app drawer, but the app shortcuts get added directly to the homescreen.

So, to take the launcher factor out, try downloading different launcher like Nova, Apex, Epic launcher, or something like that, and try the app to see if your applications show in the app drawer. In case they don't show up there either, your problem is not in the launcher itself, but something else.


If you're using an sdcard which is spoilt, and the application data is set to rest on it, that will always happen.
