    One thing I have loved about android phones vs iPhones has been the ability to flip through the screens continuously. Say, I have five screens. I can swipe from 1 through 5 and on the 5th, I swipe again, and it goes to the first page. With iPhones, when you reached the 5th, I had to go backward.

    I just got my partner the S7 today. Just like with my Note 4, the stoopid Flipboard prevented the doing the above but even after I removed it, we still can't go from 5th to 1st. We also discovered we can't do it on the Apps listing nor the Widgets.

    Is there a way to fix this? Is this a Marshmallow thing? My Note 4 has not updated to that yet so I've not had the chance to test it out. The S7 says its version is 6.0.1.

    Hi, this can resolved by downloading a 3rd party launcher like Nova or Action Launcher 3. This is a feature Samsung removed.

    Oh. Well, that was just stupid of them.

    My Note 4 updated last night and it still was able to do it so I was thinking it was an S7 thing. Gah. Okay, well, it isn't my phone so it won't be irritating me! LOL

    Thanks for the answer.

    Have Nova Prime launcher but reverting to stock until icon pack developers of those packs that I have downloaded update them. Issues with consistent icon sizes.

    I'm trying out the Nova Launcher now on my phone. She only has 3 pages so flipping between them isn't that difficult. If she starts to use more as she gets used to having a better phone (her S3 died finally) with better screen, I may introduce her to one of the launchers.

    But you know you are broke when you have to wait until payday to get a $4.99 app!
