Default Groups On Bionic Homepage

Is it possible to take the existing "groups" that were made before ICS and put them on the homepages? I have tried but I have been unsuccessful in moving the groups from (apps) where they are now to one of the home pages. I know that I can start all over and stack them, but I'd like to find out if I can just move them from the apps page (center button on home page) to one of my home pages.

Thanks

That was one of my first questions on ICS and so far the answer is no. You can stack them but the groups in your list can't be dropped on the homepage. By the way stacked groups are limited to 16 apps although groups in the All Apps list can still contain larger numbers.

It Doesn't work for me. Others on the Internet are reporting the same.

Has anyone determined what the "Add group to home" menu entry in app drawer does? (I thin the answer is NOTHING.)

Wow! I didn't now that it was limited to 16. Is that written some where or did you figure that out via trial and error? That is too limiting!!!

I can't take full credit for it. Someone else noted the limit on another forum. I just confirmed it in my futile search for a way to add folders to the home screen. There does seem to be a reason for this as 16 is the most that be displayed on one screen without scrolling.

I'm seeing the same thing with email. Unless I'm missing the boat (it's been done before), I can only get one email icon on the homepage. Before, I had Road Runner, Yahoo, etc. The only exception that I can find is Gmail has it's own icon. Any ideas anyone? This homepage thing is just too limited.

Y'all might consider Folder Organizer for your homepage folders and subfolders. It works great, no limits on folder size, and it is highly customizable.

For email, you might consider Enhanced Email. It will handle multiple accounts, including Exchange, POP3, Yahoo, Google, etc. Configure it however you want.
