How to enable a traditional Android app drawer on the LG V30
So, in a few weeks or so you will be able to get your hands on LG's newest monster, the V30. With powerful hardware and a ton of interesting features on board, it is quite likely to keep you entertained with its uniqueness for a while.

Still, there's a slight chance that you might not be drinking LG's no-app-drawer kool-aid. Since the G5, all flagship LG phones have dropped the good ol' app drawer by default and plastered all the app on a couple of home screens a la iOS and almost any Chinese custom Android skin. While it could be a convenient option for some users, probably the vast majority of Android enthusiasts will miss the traditional key feature.

But fret not, enabling an app drawer on the V30 is as easy as abc - let us show you the ropes:

Then install a newer version of Nova. I prefer the older one (Nova classic) with a gesture set to open the app-drawer with a swipe up. This way you gave both.

It would've been better if it was like on pixel and the s8 just swipe up

Wish there would be a launcher with no app drawers without going the iOS-eque launcher. This feature is what I missed back when I have the LG G3.
