List options contain the options to sort or filter the app list.

# Sort

Apps listed on the main page can be sorted in different ways. The sorting preference is preserved which means the apps will be sorted the same way that was sorted in the previous launch. Regardless of your sorting preference, however, the apps are first sorted alphabetically to prevent random results.

  • User app first. User apps are listed on top
  • App label. Sort in ascending order based on the app labels (also known as app names). This is the default sorting preference
  • Package name. Sort in ascending order based on package names
  • Last update. Sort in descending order based on the package update date (or install date if it is a newly installed package)
  • Shared user ID. Sort in descending order based on the kernel user ID
  • Target SDK. Sort in ascending order based on the target SDK
  • Signature. Sort in ascending order based on app's signing info
  • Disabled first. List disabled apps first
  • Blocked first. Sort in descending order based on the number of blocked components
  • Backup first. Display apps with backups on top

There is also a reverse option which can be used to sort the apps in reverse order.

# Filter

Apps listed on the main page can be filtered in a number of ways. Like sorting, filtering preferences are also stored and retained after a relaunch.

  • User apps. List only the user apps
  • System apps. List only the system apps
  • Disabled apps. List only the disabled apps
  • Apps with rules. List the apps with one or more blocking rules
  • Apps with activities. List the apps with one or more activities
  • Apps with backups. List apps with one or more backups (including uninstalled apps)
  • Running apps. List apps that are currently running (either in foreground or background)
  • Apps with splits. List apps with one or more split APKs
  • Installed apps. List only installed apps

Unlike sorting, you can filter using more than one option. For example, you can list the disabled user apps by filtering app lists selecting user apps and disabled apps. This is particularly useful for batch operations where you can filter all user apps to carry out certain operations.
