    Just wondering why are folders only for 12 (4x3) apps, then i have to slide right to next page.
    Is there any way i can have more then 12, there is enough space on screen for at least 20..
    thanks

    Welcome to androidforums.com!

    To answer your question, it depends. If you're running the stock launcher (a launcher is, in crude terms, what defines your homescreen and appdrawer) then I believe that there is no easy way to expand the 4x3 app drawer configuration.

    If you are into customizing your phone a little further, then you could get one of the several launcher replacements on the market -LauncherPro, ADW and GO launcher are the most popular- which, depending on your choice, can give you the option of expanding up to a 4x5 matrix (which is what you're looking for).

    Folder Organizer also makes its own folders. These folders are in a vertically continuous scroll format (think old Symbian folders).

    I dont think that is correct. I use folders and In go launcher they only allow you to have 8 items in a folder. I'm looking at my screen right now.

    I'm actually switching back to Sense because I like more than go launcher.

    yeah... i use sense.. and my folder can scroll.. i can put more than 12 icons in there.

    it is either a function of android version or launcher than is on top.

    Folder Organizer is an app to make folders. It doesnt matter what launcher you use, Folder Organizer folders all look the same. A vertical scrolling folder. For example, here a screen from my phone using Go Launcher where you can see my Games folder at the dock:

    Here's an open Folder Organizer Folder for my Games:
