          • the app list when adding apps to a folder needs filtering or sorting

            when I add apps to an app folder on my home page, the list that I select apps from is not sortable or filterable. it's hard to locate the right apps to add to the folder.

              • Folders don't update after adding new apps

                On both my wife and my phone there are folders that don't update when I add/remove apps. To clarify the apps are there when opened but the "thumbnail" with the 4 apps are not updating. in some cases only 2 apps show even though more apps were added

                    • default launch app for folders don't' appear under recent apps.

                      steps to create the issue:
                      1. Create a folder on Home screen with 4 apps.
                      2. Go to folder settings and set a app (from among the 4 apps) as default open on folder tap along with swipe up to open.
                      3. Tap on the folder > the assigned app should open.
                      4. Check recent apps on android and you will notice the default app you opened is not there.

                      this issue requires app relaunch if you switch to some other app as the default app is no longer there.

                                • Folder Icon Update

                                  Once the first 4 apps are put in a folder the icon showing the 4 apps never changes when the apps or rearranged or even removed from the folder. This can make it misleading when I have a folder set for Swipe to open the First app in the folder (really nice feature otherwise!).

                                      The app icons in folder is in the center of the folder. But sometimes they are a little lower and out of the folder. Reboot will fix this.

                                      • Homescreen columns and rows

                                        On my galaxy J7 Perx, when columns and rows are set to 5 and 5 and I'm on the home screen, it takes several taps to open any folder.

                                        • duplicate app in folder

                                          when adding apps in the folder, if you mistakenly add same app again it shows two app icons.
