    Can you make a folder within the Apps screen that you pull up? I woild like for instance make a folder called Games and put all the games in this folder to clean up the App Screen a bit.

    I downloaded App Organizer, but it only seems to put a filder on 1 of the 3 front screens????
    Thanx

    I wanted to know if there is an app for this also.... i would hate to think that you cant organize all of the apps on the slide up screen..... that would be crazy..

    You can add a folder by going to Menu -> Add -> Folders -> New Folder. However, I haven't been able to figure out how to rename it.

    Im pretty sure that only puts a folder on one of the 3 home screens. My app screen is filling up and I would like a way to clean things up. A folder in there would be nice.

    Yes this does create a folder, but it adds it to one of the three 'desktop' screens. I want to add a folder to the Slide up menu / Application list where it shows all of the apps on my phone. The list is getting huge and i hate having to scroll through all of these apps.

    i have a feeling putting a folder there is not possible.....
