If you look at all the apps installed on your Apple Watch, you probably see them in the familiar standard honeycomb grid. If you have many apps, do not want to deal with bars, or just feel fat fingered, this screen may not be good for you.
Do not worry, there is an alternative. Instead, you can organize your apps in an alphabetical list.
- Press the digital crown on any dial of the watch to display the honeycomb structure of the apps.
- Forcibly touch the clock display. (Press with a little more force on the display than usual.) You will receive a haptic feedback, and on the clock, a screen is displayed, where you can choose between grid view and list view.
- Tap the list view and an alphabetical list of all installed apps will be displayed. Next to each name is the app icon. Each screen fits multiple apps, and you can scroll through the list by turning the crown or flicking the list up and down.
The view you selected is persistent, that is, it remains selected until you change it. Once you have selected the list view, your apps will be displayed next time the crown is pressed. Of course, you can always put it back in grid view in the same way.
