When you do this you will see that at the top, just below the tab name, appears three sections: large apps, unused apps, and games. By tapping on the first one, you will be able to see the apps that occupy more than 512 MBby clicking a second time on the applications that you have not used for more than a month and when you press the last one you will see just the games.

In the list of applications that appears when applying one of these filters, which can be combined to easily find large applications or games that we have not used for more than a month or games that take no more room in the memory of our terminal, you can see that large apps appear with an MB+ icon, less used apps with an alarm clock icon, and games with a gamepad icon, so apps that meet more than one of these filters’ settings will appear labeled with multiple icons. So, for example, if we have installed a game that occupies more than 512 MB, it will appear labeled with MB+ and game controller icons.
