  1. Folders

    How do I get the icons to overlap in the view of the folders? Everything is easy too tiny to be of use.

        • add apps to folder

          On folders in home screen, there is an option to to add apps using which the apps' icons can be added to the folder. When add apps is clicked, a list of apps with checkboxes are shown from where the desired apps to be added can be checked. However, if the folder already contains some apps, then those are not checked in the list of apps displayed when add apps is selected. Further if these already existing apps are selected from the list. The app icons are again added to the folder.

            • Icon for grouped apps does not update its appearance after initial group creation

              After grouping apps together, the group icon initially correctly thumbnails the contents, but resorting or adding to the group does not update the group icon.

                        • App add in folder

                          After adding application in folder still same app icon can be seen to add again in same folder, which is little confusing. Once app icon added into folder should not be available again for add in same folder.
                          to check add app and edit folder and add again.

                                      • while adding apps to folder, apps which are already in the folder also appears unchecked, due to which single app gets multiple repeat

                                        while adding apps to folder, apps which are already in the folder also appears unchecked in Selection list, due to which single app gets multiple repeats of icons in a folder. Just like nova launcher already added apps should appear checked in Selection list so that duplicacy of icons may not occur.
