    Basically I have downloaded games, trivia, etc and would like to somehow group them into their own folder under All Apps. Is that possible or no?

    Thanks
    Dave

    For now, you can make folders on the desktop and organize your apps that way.

    any way to assign a custom "name" to the folders you can make on the EVO, or are you stuck with the names that they show by default? (new documents, blutooth downloads, etc..)

    After you've made a folder (by longpressing on an empty space, then selecting Folder->New Folder, you will see the folder icon, named "Folder." Open this new folder. then longpress the titlebar and you will be given a chance to rename it. Intuitive, eh? :D

    you cannot, AFAIK, drag widgets into folders, they must live on the desktop. You can, however, drag any document into a folder. I use folders to organize browser links and notes.

    thanks, man, your tip has helped me to setup my phone so that every program I want access to are now in 3 folders, so I only need to swipe to a second screen to have access to everything I want/need! Sort of like how I used Catagories on my JB'd 3GS..

    Great Tip!!

    Another idea: use the Smart Shortcuts app. In addition to grouping your apps however you like, you can also use it to make groups of your favorite web sites and contacts. And you can pick the icon. I love it.
