    I was using galaxy s4 with android kitkat. I know i'm a laggard, but i don't like alternations on newer android versions that much. But eventually i changed my phone to galaxy s8, which means i have to use android oreo.
    So,
    1. is there any way i can use recent apps button as a menu button?(instead of the three dots, or using both, i don't care)
    2. and any way i can see recent apps by holding home button?

    i don't care about rooting, but i prefer not to root the phone.

    thanks.

    I think you'll like Oreo but that won't happen until it's out of beta. S8 still ships with 7.o

    I changed my recent apps to this configuration as soon as I saw the option in beta. Just think it is easier to navigate than card shuffle layout.

    I think you can set home button to recent apps in Nova Prime.

    That recent apps setup looks great! Can't wait till my S8+ on Verizon gets the updates. I guess I'll be waiting a while still for that though.
    Yeah, having the recents in a list is much cleaner looking and easier to navigate. (at least for me)

    Thanks for posting this. I just tried it out on my S8 and like it.
