Shelter has a feature, it can auto-freeze an app. which means the app is frozen/blocked when it is not being used, in order to restrict the activity of pervasive apps.
If an app is added to that auto-freeze list, then one can create a shortcut (an icon on the launcher) which will unfreeze and launch the corresponding app at need (instead of unfreezing and launching it from Shelter itself).
It is that type of shortcuts (or icons) that don’t get displayed by Bliss launcher
When you install the app “lawnchair”, it will suggest itself as a default app launcher, then you’ll see it replacing Bliss. basically your home screen will look different. it has the classic app drawer… lawnchair needs access to notifications, just like Bliss, so it can display a dot over app icons, when a new message enters for example.
If you want to return back to Bliss, all you have is to choose Bliss as your default app launcher (aka home app).
go to: Settings > Apps > gear icon on top > Home app > choose Bliss.
Bliss will take over the home screen again, remember to give notifications access if needed.
I installed Shelter and installed an apk into Shelter (Aurora Store) and then installed WhatsApp inside Shelter. The problem is that the icons are showing up on the Home screen but they don’t have the padlock in the corner like the Contacts and Files do. In the Settings>App list, both icons show up and have the padlock like I would think Bliss should have. Anyone else seeing this?
