What is an app drawer?

An app drawer is a dedicated space on your phone where all its apps reside. On most stock Android phones, you can open the app drawer by swiping up from the bottom of your home screen. Some phones and launchers also have an app drawer icon in the dock that can be tapped to access all your installed apps.
