Indexed app pages?

I took delivery of a new S21+ yesterday and so far I'm quite liking it. One thing however is driving me a bit mad. When swiping up from the home screen to get to my apps, I have 7 pages and have to swipe left or right to get to the app I want. My old Huawei phone did it differently, it had one long, scrollable page of apps with an alphabetical index down the right hand side so if I wanted, for exampe, the Photo Resizer app, I could tap on P on the index and it would take me more or less there. Is there any way or an app to install that would make the S21+ behave in a similar fashion? I know I can type a P in the search bar on the top of the apps page and show more but by the time I tap in the search, open the keyboard and type a P then on show more and minimising the keyboard out of the way that's a lor more taps!

@elverdiblanco: Sadly the option to scroll vertically on the Apps menu isn't available natively on the Galaxy S21+. The only reason I can think of is that it would conflict with the swipe gestures used to return to the Home Screen and access the notification panel. As a workaround you may wish to group your apps alphabetically in folders to reduce the amount of pages you need to navigate through to reach the desired app.

Shame the option isn't available natively, it just makes finding apps so much easier.

I wonder if there are any 3rd party apps that might help?

You need to look for a launcher app to do this. A lot of launchers have an app search. Nova has always been my first choice
