The update of Android 9 Pie gave many visual changes, some of which are a bit reminiscent of iOS. There are new gesture controls, which are okay, but then there are things like a left-aligned clock and the fact that the latest apps menu now rolls horizontally instead of vertically. Fortunately, Samsung has given us a way to take back the classic Android style.
Horizontal new apps may look good, but they are less functional. When this menu was vertical, you can clearly see the last five or so using the device, making it easy to switch back to one. But since the phones are longer than they are wide, this menu scrolls horizontally. This means that you can only see one or two of your latest apps at a time. However, using one of Samsung's best apps, you can put things back as they were.
Step 1: Install Good Lock 2019
First, know that it only works if you have a Samsung Galaxy device running the Android 9 Pie update (a user interface). This method does not work on other devices.
To get started, go to Galaxy Store (you'll find this app in your app box), then search for "Good Lock" and install it. This is Samsung's own app, and it's really useful to change all the little things on your galaxy.
After installing it, check your app box. Make sure you have the version called "Good Lock 2019" instead of "Good Lock 2018." At the time of writing, Good Lock 2019 has not rolled out to all regions and entities. In particular, the Galaxy S10 will still get the 2018 version of Good Lock that doesn't work with this mode. There is nothing you can do except wait if that is the case, but Samsung will update Good Lock for the next few weeks for S10 users.
If you are not using a S10, but you still have the 2018 version of Good Lock, update has probably not been rolled out to your region yet. You can try the page download 2019 version from the link below, but some users have reported that this is not working, so you will probably only wait as S10 users out there.
With the 2019 version of Good Lock installed, the rest is quite simple. Open Good Lock from your appbox and then tap "Plug-in Changer" plug-in placeholder. You will be downloaded to the installation platform for the Task switch plugin, so press "Install".
Now open Good Lock and press "Task Changer" again – this time the plugin interface should be opened. Press the switch next to "Not in use" to turn it on and then select "Layout Type". Select "List" from the prompt and you will be completely set!
Now, your latest apps menu will be vertically oriented again. There is even a giant animation that the plates faded in and out of sight, and a ripple effect as you roll over. You can swipe vertically to see more apps (but you can already see five apps at a time on most Galaxy phones) and you can swipe left or right to remove an app from the list.
