  3. Sort

    Folders on home screen and app drawer do not remember order. I have to repeatedly re-sort my folders alphabetically, but they always revert to whichever random order they were previously in.

  8. the "sort alphabetically" button for folders seems broken. it will sort the apps alphabetically but reset them to the previous state later.

  9. Applications in the folder do not remain alphabetically even when the home screen is locked

    When I'm doing the folders, I usually leave the apps anyway and then just when I'm doing the folders, I usually leave the apps anyway and then just use the option to arrange alphabetically, but at Times they return to their original position, leaving everything disorganized

  12. App Folder Icon Order Bug

    Since the last update, when I try to reorder icons in an app folder it has problems.

    Won't let me add to the first row, icons frequently shuffled to the very bottom right.

  13. Apps in folders are not staying in alphabetical order

    I am constantly choosing to put my apps in folders in to alphabetical order, however, I'll go back to that folder several minutes later and they will be rearranged again.

  14. Folder background should be transparent, I should be able to control that.

    Folder background on the home screen should be transparent, I should be able to control that. It used to be ok, but currently the folder background stands on top of the background wallpaper.

  15. No longer able to change app folder preview count (2x2 or 3x4)

    Previously was able to set how many apps are previewed in a collapsed app folder. Now it's locked to 2x2, which I don't want.

  16. App folders not refreshing

    Using app folders not in full screen mode folders sometimes don't refresh icons when adding new apps, and they don't always accept the new name input for folder. Thanks
