    How do you change the apps that are on the bottom when the phone is docked? The steps above are only for the “home” apps when the phone is not docked. When docked it shows a clock and 5 apps on the bottom are Alarm – Music Player – Gallery – Voice Search and S Memo (on the galaxy note). How do you change those apps, none of which are useful when the phone is docked.
