Galaxy S3 here, international version, TouchWiz, Rooted.
I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this problem but every time I re-order the way I want the apps to appear inside folders (whether it's on the home screen/another screen) the order gets reset after a few hours or a after a restart.
I read somewhere that the order of the apps gets reset and they are ordered how the folder was originally created.
I tried that but the order was again not preserved. Any ideas how I can consistently keep the order of the apps inside a folder the way I want them ordered?
the home screen - yes - they're customisable as you want. but folders inside the home screens the order you put them in does not get maintained. This is what we're referring to here. As far as the apps drawer, yes you can customise either alphabetically, or customisably etc etc.
But what about folders in the home screens? Asides from that app which I installed and uninstalled within 5 minutes as I hated it so much.
If you don't mind how the apps look like in the Apps drawer, just go to:
apps -> menu -> view type -> customisable grid
Although the apps in the apps drawer are disorganised and not alphabetically sorted, I think this way it preserves the order of the folders. Try it, reorder one of the folders you want, reboot! if it works do the rest :-)
Hi there, did anyone come right with this? I'm experiencing the same issue and its quite annoying. I've tried what was suggested in the posts above (barring using the external app), but to no avail. Is this a bug in the firmware itself?
Thanks kennychaffin, after playing around with it for a while it seems if I drag an icon forwards to its desired position in the folder it doesn't seem to always stick, but if I drag an icon backwards to its desired location it seems to stick. Can't say this is a hard and fast rule, but it seems to behave like that for now. Dunno, this definitely seems like a bug to me, the behaviour seems just too odd
