This may seem as a strange suggestion, but I would like means to get the applications automatically sorted by frequency of use. This is the sort of order that I often fall back on when I manually sort them. A bonus effect would be an efficient population of the first (quick-access) row!

I therefore wonder if anyone else seeks such a function? Also, is there some way to write an application to do this? Can an application get access to, and modify, the order of the apps in the launcher? And is the times a certain app has been loaded registered somewhere?

Technically, it doesn't seem too complicated to implement. It would surely be best suited as an optional feature, since many users probably doesn't want their apps to float around!

This would be nice as an option: first sort the apps by frequency of use, then fine-tune by hand.

I like my app icons to stay where I put them so I am opposed to this as the default behavior. Would not mind it as an option of course.

I'd like this to be possible to setup in Settings > System > Launcher as an option to either manually sort apps or select to use some scheme (based an last access, frequency or alphabetical) of ordering.

OK ZZB but the problem is that the android apps sometimes disappear and reappear at the bottom after reboot. So you never know where you find your apps because all apps move when one app disappears... But luckily we have Quick Launcher
