I recently updated to Android Lollipop and one of the changes I didn’t like was that when I hit my menu button, I no longer get the option for settings from the home screen.
This is what I used to see on my GS4 when I tapped the menu from home screen. I could tap the settings icon and go directly to the full settings menu.
Now when I tap the menu button, I only get settings options for the home screen.
That was limited to transition effects which is not what I was looking for at all.
Now, to quickly access settings from the home screen, I need to swipe down with one finger. I’ll get a quick-access bar with settings.
I can swipe to scroll through the settings for more options.
If I tap the little gear icon at the top it will take me to a full list of settings.
If I swipe down with two fingers instead of one, there’s a longer list of options.
I still find the colors hideous, but I think I’m getting the hang of Lollipop.
