    Hey guys, new to the Droid scene.. trying to get used to this awesome phone. I'm trying to organize my apps into folders, and make my apps screens less cluttered. I figured out how to make folders and put stuff into them, but I noticed it leaves the original app icon there. This kinda defeats the purpose of making folders... Is there a way to do this? I feel like there should be a "trash" icon like in the PC world, that you can drag stuff into....

    Here's a shot using Apps Organizer
    [​IMG]

    Navigation has 13 apps and Internet has 9.

    There is a trash at the bottom. If you do a long press on an icon it'll show up.

    Its cool... but can you make the items in your new folder so they are only there, not on your apps screen? The whole point of this was to make my app pages less cluttered. While this makes grouping like apps more convenient, it doesn't free up any space.

    There is a trash icon you can drag stuff into, it just isn't obvious. Long hold on any app or widget and drag it to the bottom of the screen. The grey app drawer icon will turn red and into a trashcan. Drop it there and it will delete from your home screen.

    ^^^ Home screen yes, app drawer no... My reason for making folders is to consolidate and have my apps not take up 4 screen pages... so, I'm still stuck.

    If all your apps are in labeled folders on your home screen, why do you care what your app drawer looks like? Besides, you want one place with everything where you can't easily delete them by accident!

    Now a way to organize your app drawer into folders would be great, but it is what it is.

    AppOrganizer helps you stuff things into pseudo folders, at the expense of speed. The native folders open faster than the AppOrganizer icons.

    Thanks for posting on this app, I wasn't aware of it. It immediately uncluttered my home screen.

    you cannot remove the app icon from the app drawer and you really aren't negating any "space" by leaving them there other than clutter space.
