    Apps Organizer. Better than IOS folders since you can assign apps to multiple folders.

    +1 for Apps Organizer/Folder Organizer, same developer. You can also assign these folders to the shortcut icons in the scrollable bottom docks of launcher replacement apps like Launcher Pro, ADW, and Go Launcher.

    Go Launcher will also allow you to group icons into folders in your app tray.

    I use Folder Organizer, love it. Like was said, you can assign an app to multiple folders if you want, and you can organize the apps inside the folder so it isn't just alphabetical, you can put apps in any order you want. But if all you want is a folder and order inside doesn't matter, Android has native folder support, just long-press on an open space, select Folders>New Folder, and that puts a folder right there. Then just drag apps to it and they go in there. To rename the folder from Folder, open it up and then long-press on the top bar of it, and it will pop up a box that will let you name the folder whatever you want. And unlike Folder Organizer, this is free! Not as many options as you get with the pay apps, but still works fine.

    By the way, unlike the folders on the iPhone4, you can put as many apps as you want in each folder, they aren't limited like they are on iOS, unless Apple changed that.

    Been running Apps Organizer. Is it normal for the back of the phone to get hot when using such apps heavily? Doesn't seem right to me. Overall I like the app. I'm wondering about battery consumption. Have you guys found it to be a battery hog?

    No. Try looking in Menu, Settings, About Phone, Battery to see what is using the most battery resources.

    Perhaps you left something like Navigation running?

    Check out Smart Shortcuts too.
    Similar to Apps Organizer, but also makes folders for bookmarks, files, contacts, or combinations of these.

    Folder Organizer does that too.
