In trying to get to my battery in my SGSII, while replacing the Otterbox, I inadvertently rebooted the phone. The homescreen seemed different afterwards. No weather, for one. Then, I realize my widgets were gone. The background for Settings is black (an article said with TouchWiz, it should be white). I do not see, "Commonly Used Apps". While I can access a pull-down menu from the top of screen, I do seem to remember there being an arrow on the edge of the pull-down "shutter". This concerns me as I wanted to use a non-Google app., such as a Samsung app., for increased privacy for whatever I type and want to store. Of course, Samsung may want to "help" me by storing my documents somewhere, as well. I want to type some secure docs. Is the above methodology sound? Would a Samsung app. be best for increased privacy? Have I indeed lost TouchWiz, and any apps with it which I might have found useful in my quest for increased privacy? Hard to trust a company that seemed to be so forcible in attempting to scan and store all the books in the world.
