Android 5.1 vs Android M - Apps Info

In Android 5.1 Lollipop and all versions before it heading into "Apps" in the settings menu would show you all apps, but separate them by downloaded apps, running apps, or all. Now, with Android M they're all in one huge list.

Apps are easier to look through, manage, disable or uninstall, and tapping any app in "Apps" will give you a completely new set of information. You can see the storage usage, data, have complete control of permissions, control the notifications or stop them, set app defaults and more. Basically the "Apps" menu is extremely powerful and gives users complete control of apps, what they do, and more. It even shows how much battery each app has used, simply by tapping on any specific app.

    I have been running the 5.1.1 AICP version (based on CM 12) on my Galaxy s5 for about 3weeks. I’m having terrible trouble with GMAPS since install. Hopefully the stock sprint OTA 5.1.1 update will not have the same issue. Its almost unusable. Constantly searching for GPS locations. Even under high accuracy settings. ** I am trying older PRL’s to see if that makes any difference**
