Shelf - do you use it?

    I've come to the OP5 from a phone that took you to Google Now when you swiped right from the home screen. The OP5 has 'shelf' there and compared to Google Now I find it a bit disappointing. So a few questions:
    1. Have you left shelf there when you swipe right, or turned it off?
    2. If you've left it on, have you found something useful to do with it?
    3. Would you prefer Google Now?

    I used shelf for the first day. Felt useful as i could add all my widgets there. But launcher crashed on me after a reboot so installed the Nova launcher.

    May be there is option to invoke shelf from button combination?

    Will give it a try, but left side panel for me is reserved to Google Now.

    Personally, I don't use it, don't need it. Do not have so many apps installed, so Recent apps is not usable for me. Also Manage center is useless, Recent contacts as well.

    I use the Nova launcher too but have enabled Shelf access by double tapping the left button.
    Just assign an action to a button from the Settings menu under the Buttons menu.

    Hope that helps.

    I assume you're using a different launcher? I've not found a way of replacing shelf with Google Now... but I'd be interested to know if you can?

    I might have to switch back to Nova, but I quite like the interface on OP launcher... Nova is great but takes a lot of time to tweak everything (it does for me at least!)

    U can import the OnePlus launcher config to nova. So all shortcuts and widgets will be imported.

    After a reboot the app drawer showed ZERO apps. So had to get back to the trusted Nova.

    What do you have on there? Have you added more widgets or just kept the standard recent contacts, recent apps etc?
