Summary : How to Create Lists and Libraries in SharePoint 2013 the Old way,Create List and Libraries in SharePoint 2013 using create.aspx
In SharePoint 2013 the Concept of “Apps” is a little Confusing. Its not your Phone Apps for sure so what is it? In simple words, some of the SharePoint Components like Lists, Libraries,Sandbox or Custom Applications,few Features like Event Receivers(remote) or Field types (based on existing field types) are termed as “Apps”. So now if someone want to say “Add a new List” to SharePoint, they should probably say “Add a List App” to SharePoint instead.
In SharePoint 2013 you can add a new List using the new “Add an app” option or you can directly switch to the old Create View that you had in SharePoint 2010.Lets see the Old way first
