    Default Can't Find Downloaded Play Store Applications.

    Basically, I just got my S4 Mini a few days ago. Today I tried downloading some apps (Facebook, Whatsapp and Skype) from the Play Store. After I had installed the apps I couldn't find them in the ''Apps'' tab. I checked settings and found that the apps are installed, but It won't tell me where? I've looked everywhere and uninstalled/installed them again but to no avail.

    Any advice...

    When you touch the "apps" icon on your home screen, it should take you to additional screens with an "apps" or "widget" tab at the top. Be sure you are displaying apps....not widgets.... You should have several screens of pre-installed apps displayed alphabetically. After those pages should be pages with the ones you have downloaded.

    Welcome to Android Central! Open your App Drawer (tap the icon that looks like a circle with a grid of dots). Then long-press an app icon, and then drag it to the homescreen. That creates a shortcut on the homescreen that launches the app.

    Are you installing them from Google Play Store, or some other legitimate app source like Amazon Underground? Or are these apk files you're downloading from random sites?

    Which apps are they? Some apps are only meant to be widgets, and therefore don't show up in the App Drawer (unless you have a Widgets tab in the App Drawer).
