    Hi,

    New to android and phandroid, is there anyway to organise your apps, in the apps list like a folder to games, social....etc like the way the android market is sorted out as i only have a few apps installed but it looks messy and untidy already.

    Thanks.

    You can long press on your home screen and then select folder. Open it and long press the top to rename it. You can then drag apps into it.

    what he said, that main "drawer" is basically an alphabetical list of all the apps that you have installed. There are a few exceptions, like widgets -- which don't show up in the drawer unless the dev has made them that way.

    Sorry it was the "drawer" unsure what to call it, so i take it there is no other way (by app or some other setting) to organise it?

    Thanks

    Not that I've seen.. you're just stick having alphabetical. I wondered this when I first hpt my phone as well. It's kind of a shame.
