How to Blloc
On the Home Screen of Ratio, you will see Tiles, Custom Drawers and if enabled, a Dock that holds up to 5 apps.
Tiles are your apps but not distracting: with enhanced functionality and minimal design. To maintain a clean desktop environment, store your Tiles in Custom Drawers.
All your apps are stored in the App Drawer. Access the App Drawer by swiping up from the bottom of your screen.
If you need a tutorial refresher, please go to: Ratio Settings > General > Onboarding > Start
Now you finished onboarding, your home screen may look like the image below.
