Adrian Brain on Vertical scrolling app drawer on Samsung

…for Ted & Myriam Joire…

Personally I think it makes logical sense to swipe left & right in the app drawer, as that's what you do to swap between home screens, but…to get it up and down, install "Good Lock" from the Samsung Galaxy Store & then from within that install the module called "Home Up". Open up "Good Lock" again, go into "Home Up > Home screen" and toggle on "Apps List". Open the app drawer and Bob's your giddy Aunt, you can scroll up & down. Sort alphabetically or in custom order using the hamburger menu. Don't forget to explore other Good Lock options, there's loads of fun stuff there. The more the stuff is used, the more likely it is to get rolled into the base firmware.

My free Galaxy Buds Pro arrived yesterday. I tested them watching the WU Assassins on Netflix via the Roku remote app on my Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. I thought they sounded a bit "thin".

Playing with the equaliser didn't make much difference. Then I remembered that the S22U has Dolby Atmos. This made a huge difference - the sound was perfectly adequate. However, when there were gaps in dialogue, the volume of the background sounds was low. It felt like the Atmos system disabled itself and they reverted to their, rather thin, output. As soon as the dialogue restarted the Atmos system kicked back in and raised the  background volume and warmth. Moral of the story, you don’t get somethin’ for nuthin’ and at the very least, use Dolby!
