Default Legacy apps: issues and fixes

Noticed some statements about some old apps not working yet.


Here's an old trick that has helped at each transition to a higher resolution phone with older apps - check out "Spare Parts Plus! (no ads)"

Uncheck Compatibility mode, reboot.

No guarantees and someone is going to have to be the guinea pig.

I've used it and recommended it on a number of phones with new screen features, no one has started a fire yet.

Basically, it gives access to hidden settings - not all of which are available on all models.

Like I say, no guarantees but it's not snake oil.
