1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    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.
