    My apps are presented to me alphabetically. I have to scroll through 8 screens to get to the end (YouTube and yp). When on the apps screens, either the first or the last, why won't android allow you to scroll left to get from the first to the last (in one scroll) and/or allow you to scroll once more from the last screen to get to the first? I hate having to scroll 8 screens to get to an app I know is on the last page!

    There are options for this in third party launchers, like Nova.

    When you long press the the dot/page indicator at the bottom of the app drawer. It goes to that page. No need for the finger exercise!

    Or you can tap on widgets tab and go back a page.

    In Nova, grab the blue bar on the right side and drag it. You can go from top to bottom with one slide.

    Menu button >> Sort >> Custom

    You can scroll from first page to last page by going left and opposite is also true.

    Actually you don't as there is a setting for that.

    I presume that the option Menu > Sort > Custom, and scrolling from first page to last page by going left, and the Infinite Scroll option all apply to Nova and/or Android 4.4. I sure don't see them on stock TouchWiz on 4.3. The one thing you can do with apps (not widgets) on that UI is organize them into folders, which I've done. It makes them quite easy for me to find.

    Dave, are you on VZW? I looked for this too, and it appears we are out of luck on VZW...

    Yeah, I'm with Verizon. But maybe it's Nova rather than carrier-specific this time.

    As suggested above, I've thrown mine into three easy folders, and labeled them correspondingly: Customization, Tools, and Fun $h!t. As they are self explanatory, knowing where over 90 apps are within three folders is supremely easy in Nova.. Go into Nova Settings> Drawer> Drawer Groups then click on Folders.. Hit the + button and name the folder.. Then you can go into your app drawer, hit Apps in the upper left, then Configure, then select your newly named Folder from the drop down menu just to the right of the Nova Icon on top.. From there, add your apps, and repeat to your heart's content!

    I just realized there are three different app drawer layouts in Nova and that affects the responses:

    Three app drawer layouts in Nova: Horizontal / Vertical / List.

    Each response needs to be considered in terms of the layout.. that's why there was such a variety of different responses (people use different layouts)

    I'm pretty sure from responses I'm the only responder using List view. In list view everything is one big long vertical list but you can drag the blue line (on the right) and watch the letter (upper left hand side) to get wherever you want to go quickly. You can also scroll pretty darned quickly without the blue slider since it's scrolling in one long list (not swiping past individual screens which stop at each one). List view works well for me personally as an app drawer layout. I find myself doing similar excercize (scrolling through long vertical alphabetized list of Apps) in AFWall and Xprivacy so it's a quick easy familiar task. (I do have categorized shortcuts to commonly used programs in homescreen folders and in swipepad screens/folders, but there are sometimes when you want to go to App drawer). I can well understand others have different setups and preferences which suit them and this is not for everyone, but it works well for me.
