A store of secret apps

But this feature is not available on all devices and everyone has applications that they would like to hide from people.
It can be difficult to see some small elements on the screen. Some users may need to zoom in and this is where the Magnifier comes in. This can be activated through “special features” or “advanced settings”.
Work in two applications at once
