    I want to list the apps I have on my tablet by the date on which I installed them. Is there a way to do this?

    Welcome to Android Central! The best you can do is go to Google Play Store, swipe in from the left, tap My Apps, then Installed. This will show you all of the apps you've ever installed from most recent to oldest--but it will also show apps that you have since uninstalled.

    ES file explorer has a setting called ES Swipe. I've turned that off and had no more problems.

    There is no "My Apps." What then? Thanks

    Any file explorer that has a "list by" function. But listing apps is a problem - many of them aren't in visible folders. You can list all the files you can see by date per folder. (You can only see the files in one folder at a time.)

    Revo Uninstaller has a sort (by date, name, size) feature in the top right corner of the apps that are listed for you to consider uninstalling and often I have them sorted so the most recently installed are on top and all I have to do is click/tap on the name and it should launch. Sometimes it crashes but I've noticed in that same drop-down box in the top right corner is a refresh option and that seems to greatly reduce the number of crashes if I tap that before launching an app. It doesn't happen as often when I choose to uninstall (trashcan icon). When I use the word "crash" I mean Revo Uninstaller app shows a message that it couldn't complete the action desired and immediately restarts itself which means it has to take a few seconds to read all the apps you have installed that it recognizes as apps which can be uninstalled. I couldn't find a launcher that sorts by date so it works okay for me but I wish I had something better.

    Thanks for that, Asaens. (I wasn't aware that they had come out with an Android version. And with all the apps I install to help people, I need a mass uninstaller once in a while.)

    What a shocking state of affairs if you have install an uninstaller just to list apps by installation date?


    And it seems people kind of just accept it.

    Some real shocking stuff with Android, such as taking away root access, they show be sued,
    I imagine if you bought a care and you took it to the garage for a service and they removed your wheels?

    That's because there are 3 dates for a file - created date, modified date and accessed date, and most programs use the modified date - which is not the created date (which is the installation date). With pictures taken by camera, though, there's an EXIF (exchangeable image file format) header that has the date the picture was taken on - and programs that can set any or all of the file dates to that EXIF date (and some of them can do it to all the files in a folder in one shot, skipping the ones with no "taken on" date).

    As far as root, I believe that the GPL requires that be supplied, but since no one's challenged it in court yet ... (we just use phones with unlockable bootloaders and install Magisk).

    That's an odd analogy. A car won't go anywhere without wheels. As far as I know, an Android phone still works fine without knowing exactly when an app was installed.
