    Sorry if this has been asked before but I looked and couldn't find anything.

    With the stock launcher is there anyway to get the standard app drawer back? I don't like having every single installed app on the home screen at all.

    Let me get this straight. You have every single app installed on your homescreen? What the hell kinda phone do you have?

    Droid 1. Yes, when I login into my Google account for the first time it restores all my apps. But since there is no app drawer all the app icons are on the homescreen, every single one.

    Interesting, I will give that a try. Would be nice to have a standard app drawer though!

    You are essentially making your own app drawer with the folder trick. I keep 2 folders, one with frequent used apps that is in my dock. The second folder is on my last homescreen page and contains the apps that i dont use or rarely use like Email, Car Home, Superuser, etc

    One of the features of MIUI is it does not use an app drawer, something that sets it apart from the other ROMs out there. This was one of the features that drew me to MIUI.

    Do you like the rest of the launcher, just wishing for an app drawer?

    Yea I like how this rom looks but having all the apps on the homescreen is just to much of a cluster f'ck for me. An app drawer would make this a great ROM for me. For now I will just install ADW, I know if defeats the purpose but oh well :(

    It bugged me at first not having the app drawer, but I kind of like it now. What I did is just break up all my apps into about 6 categories and put them in those folders. So now, instead of going through an entire app drawer to find something, I can just open up the folder-with like 8-15 apps in each, and get what I want. I mostly used just folders on my home screens when I used LP anyways, so it actually works out better for me.

    You could also freeze the apps you never use via titanium backup. That should hide them until they're "defrosted".

    no app drawer needed. There are a lot of ROMs with drawers, try them if you miss it so much. You can organize unlimited pages for your different categories of apps. A lot better than a drawer if you'd ask me.

    You can organize your app drawer too. Just get a home replacement thats allows you to.

    I stopped using the MIUI launcher when ADW-ex came out. Loved the MIUI launcher at times, and at times hated it. I have no problems with ADW-ex. LP got old, so did the MIUI launcher in my opinion.
