    If i can't get more home pages..... How do name (label) folders?

    I still have not found an App that will allow me to have more home pages. Panda and Open Home confuse me with alot of stuff that i either don't want or I just plain don't understand.
    I just want more home screens (1 for games, one for entertainment, ect.).
    So I figured out that I can at least bunch apps into folders and call upon them in groups as i need them, not as convenient as extra pages but still get the job done.
    I could not figure out how to name the folder if i want one for entertainment, sports and so on.
    Any help?
    Thanks

    If you open the folder and long press the folder name title area, it will allow you to change the name of the folder.
    Resistance is futile.

    Buy DxTop which is a Home Replacement app (it will give you 4 screens) and it will allow you to change the icons if you have an icon pack downloaded.

    Or

    Buying Better Cut will allow you to change the icon to any app but not a folder which I hope is coming soon in an update.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    If you want custom folders there is an app called Apps Organizer. It will let you categorize your apps by type, i.e. sports, entertainment, tools, news, work, gps, etc… and then you can place custom folders with user selectable icons on your home screens. When clicked they will show the apps in the corresponding category…
