    It will come back if you DL somewhere around 40 or 50 apps.

    I actually find the alphabets helpful, as I can avoid scrolling and reach the end if the list just by tapping an alphabet and selecting the alphabet I want to scroll to, which gets me to, say "w" in 2 taps, rather than 3-4 swipes. Anyway, to each his own....

    In case you prefer scrolling, try this: when you swipe to the app list, tap the search icon. This removes the alphabets from the view, and you can scroll the list or type in the app name.
