    I have a lot of apps sitting on the shelf and a lot of empty space in my main pages. Is there a way to move all the apps over all at once instead of one at a time?

    Hi

    Stock launcher apps don't do this, but you should have a look at a few others which automatically populate and group apps - maybe ZenUi launcher or Apus launcher, both from Playstore, may give you what you want.

    I prefer to have just one or two pages with a few key widgets and some folders with the most used apps.

    Never mind previous post. Misunderstood.

    Anyway, what is it really you want to do? Make it like an iPhone with everything on the homescreen?

    to me that is a horrible idea. All 200 apps just jump up onto the home pages?

    I prefer Organization. I am using Nova Launcher Prime and have folders created with generic names for the area of interest. ie, Tools, GPS, Internet, Finance, News, Cameras, etc...

    Then I select a single app from the App Drawer to a home page. Then I move that app into a folder that puts that app with others of the same genre

    Hi maybe you can use APUS launcher, cause after I have use that launcher, I found that it can auto-organize all apps into folders, besides I think its launcher looks more like iPhone

    If you are planning on using apus launcher... Make sure you're happy with their privacy policy first... # just saying
