    I downloaded an app and there is no shortcut on the home screen or when I swipe left. There isn't one when I swipe up and look through my apps. When i search I can find it and it works. Anyone else run into this issue? How can I get a shortcut to appear anywhere for the app?

    A downloaded app would show up on your home screen automatically only if you configure Google Play to do so. Othr, it goes into the app drawer, and you have to manually put the shortcut on the home screen.

    I was having the same issue, what you gotta do is go to Game Launcher, go into settings, uncheck hide games on Home and Apps.
