Instead of dragging and dropping app folders on the home screen as folders are always changing, is there a way to auto alphabetize folder apps on the home screen?

Thanks. Seems like the organize apps are manual and haven't been updated in more than a year. If you find a newer one, let me know.

Tested a couple of other apps and they're all basically taking the same amount of time to set up as if I had just manually organized them. If anyone has any other apps they know of let me know.

The app really needs to be where you just open it and it detects the type of apps you have and drops them into folders on the home screen.

Yea, I have not found anything either and on my last android I kept up with keeping things organized.

Sometimes the answer is there is no real answer and this may be one of those times.

turbojournal, like I said, sometimes the answer is there is no answer and this is for sure one of those times.

Still not possible in simplified ways from a third party app.

And the answer given that it can't be done is correct http:Q_28410167.html#a40003820  I wish there was a way.
