    Alphabetize apps in folders

    Is there a way to get my phone (Motorola Droid) to automatically alphabetize my app icons in my folders?

    Mine isn't. Even after a couple of reboots.

    I believe they're listed in the order they're added to the folder. I use abcOrganizer which provides more flexibility for folders, and allows you to sort them however you like. I think there's a free version (appOrganizer maybe?).

    Then how would one explain them in Alphabetical order on every Droid I've seen?

    The app drawer is alphabetized. The folders you can create on your homescreens are not. Here's a screenshot of a folder from my phone. This is the only folder I use because I can't do settings shortcuts in abcOrganizer.

    Thanks GolfProRM! Been using abcOrganizer lite for a while now and it seems to be doing exactly what I wanted.
