        • Sometimes there's an empty page in the Apps screen

          Often the Apps screen will allow me to scroll down to another empty page. Rearranging the app icons in the first page temporarily solves the problem, but it comes back often.

          • apps disappearing after reboot

            started after update.
            certain apps disappear from home page(s), and some disappear from app drawer.
            Play says they are installed and I open them but they don't reappear on home/drawer.
