Where is the Applications app?

Where is the Applications app? In Android 4.2.2 there was an app that listed all the running apps, whether they had been downloaded or were native and whether they were stored on the phone or the SD card. I can't find it, do you know where it is?

Re: Where is the Applications app?

Hi @Gusdeadman,

 

Welcome to the community,

 

In this case, the application section is located in the Settings under Apps & Notifications and App info.

 

I hope this helps.

Thanks, does it tell me what apps are running so I can stop them?

Re: Where is the Applications app?

Hi @Gusdeadman,

 

If you want to see running services, you can only do so within the Developer Options Menu.

 

You will need to move to Settings > System > About phone > Tap Build Settings 7 times until it tells you that you are now a developer.

 

Now you can access Developer options within System and find the Running Services function.

 

I hope this helps.
