Recently installed apps inside the menu

Post by ssspace » Mon Dec 18, 2017 9:54 pm

When I install lots of apps at once, I often lose track of what was installed. A useful feature would be a category inside the menu with a list of the last apps installed, or a list of apps installed in the last week or something like that.

It could be inside the category "recently used", maybe a tab or a horizontal line separating what was used and what was installed, or even a new category inside the menu.

I think this would be a useful feature.
