My problem is that I'm not happy how my app icons are located in the app launcher and I want to do something on it.

I'm feeling quite stupid but after searching like mad I can't find information about:

  • how to utilize folder support in app launcher area which is mentioned as a new feature already in
  • how to modify the order of app icons in app launcher?

Any pointers to the right direction would be appreaciated.

While in the app launcher press and hold until a little 'x' appears at the bottom of each app icon. Now you can tap and hold on the desired icon to move. Dragging an icon on top of another icon, indicates the creation of a folder when you release your finger. Moving an icon inbetween other icons drops it in that exact place. I hope it is understandable how to customise your app launcher. Btw a click on a little 'x' will uninstall that app.
