    Broke down and bought holo launcher.. Is there any way to keep all apps in the All drawer once you have them in a separate one? Example i made a drawer with 10 programs but they don't show up in my all tab any more..

    I don't use that one (I use Nova), so I can only ask: what happens when you remove one of the apps from that sub-drawer? Does it go back to the "all" tab?

    Yes it does.. Seems more of an unsorted tab then all..

    Are you able to have apps listed in more than one category at a time?

    Seems odd. I just set HOLO up on my Galaxy Player. I just drag apps onto a screen, then drag them together to make a folder/drawer. Those apps stay in the main app drawer and the folder. Apps in the main drawer are alphabetical. You can "hide apps" from the app drawer screen, but they are not hidden by default.

    Folders aren't the issue.. In the app drawer where i can customize the tabs is.. (all, favorite, recent, etc)

    And yes i can have the same app in multiple tabs, it just erases them from the all list once i place them in a different tab..

    Ahhhh I see. I don't use tabs, actually deleted all but the "All" one. I prefer a screen link to "groups" (folders), with a newly assigned icon (or text).

    Probably a good idea. I can't picture that being deliberate on the Dev's part.

    I've used Holo awhile and never really noticed this as a problem (always go to my custom tab to find the apps I put there), but thanks to op for pointing it out.

    One workaround would be to create a custom folder (call it All2) and put everything in there (you'd need to uncheck "ungrouped only" in order to see all Apps for selection).

    You could even delete your All (can always be re-added later if you change your mind) and use All2 instead.

    But then you won't get new programs in there unless you manually add them each time you install a new program ... not a particularly pleasing solution

    Thought of that too.. But ya basically a bandaid.. It's not truly an all category, just ungrouped at the moment.. Did email the dev so just waiting on a reply.. Will post what he says..

    Well, heard back from the dev.. That's the way it is supposed to be according to him..

    "Oh I see. That is normal, following the rules I had made when writting codes. You can take it easy."

    Seeing if he is willing to implement it as a feature.. will keep yall updated..

    Edit:

    He replied that he has not planned on it, but will take it into consideration..
