    Hi - we exchanged in our new iPhone 5's for Razr Maxx last night and I couldn't be happier that I am back. My Motorola Electrify was my best buddy. We tried something new and it was not a good fit.

    Anyway. On the Maxx, my dainty thumb can't quite carry out the steps I have to take to get to "Manage Apps." Can I set up a shortcut on my home screen to get directly to Manage Apps? Why? Because I am concerned with data usage at the moment and I like to watch real time what apps are doing.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Droid Forums!!

    What I do is long press on the screen, select shortcut , select settings shortcut , and then navigate to apps. This is on a nexus but there should be a similar option on the MAXX.

    All I get when I do that is an option to change my wallpaper? I guess this has changed in ICS.

    Go to "apps" select "widgets" at the to of the screen. Select "settings shortcut" then select "app"

    This will put a shortcut to your apps where you can force close or clear cache.

    Thank you very much - worked like a charm. I can't tell you how many times I looked at that Settings Shortcut and just assumed it would just take me to settings! So thanks - I knew the functionality had to be there, somewhere.

    Thank you for jumping in and helping out. I failed to remember that I am running a market launcher and you need to go into the drawer on stock launcher.

    Sorry about that lazykins.
