    Hi all,

    I have an LG v30 after system update I am having few issue.

    -Long press no longer work, I can not move the app to home screen. It doesn't have any option when i long press. I have tried rebooting and still no luck. home screen it has the ADD button to add apps to home screen but it does not have any option to arrange it.

    -Also swiping in apps how do I do continues swipe? I could only swipe till end of page, it doesn't let me continue to swipe to the first page of the apps.

    -I no longer have the google search bar. I remembered I can long press on the home screen and This will give the option to add a new or existing widget.

    NONE OF THIS EXIST ANYMORE! DAMN YOU SYSTEM UPDATE!:mad:

    Sounds like the system update changed the way your homescreen is arranged.
    You can always install a different launcher from the play store, such as Nova launcher that can do as you wish

    @Dannydet didn't that used to work without a 3rd party launcher? Just Long Press and place on Homescreen.

    I've got a LG G7 and it works fine with Nova Launcher. Nova Launcher hasn't been bought by Alphabet yet so... That must be a basic function. As a matter of fact I know it was a basic Android function.

    Is LG suddenly rolling out their own OS or app moving restrictions?

    @lgv30714 Try a restart then drag and drop.
    Restart is your friend.

    FIXED IT! THANKS!

    its so weird, not sure what happened. but I downloaded Nova launcher didn't do anything to it i just installed it and go on with my day. later when i opened my phone everything was back to normal. I can long press and move apps now.

    I tried to uninstall Nova to see if it was that that did the trick. nothing changed. long press and widget works like normal. weird...

    Thanks for the help!!
