I use a lot of tiles in my Start Screen.

Many of them are just shortcuts to apps or games I frequently use.

They end up occupying a lot of space on the screen even when its minimal size.

Can I group them in something like folders in iOS or Android and categorize them?


You can do this with an application called App folder if you have the Lumia Amber update. To check if you do, follow these instructions.

Then install App folder. This app will allow you to create a folder with a selection of apps in it.

App Folder. A new Start screen feature for grouping similar apps and settings, making it easier to personalize and organize your phone.

Thanks to @caschw I've realised that the below information is incorrect, but I'll leave it here so his comment makes sense. The post was update to the Amber update.

The upcoming Nokia release "Lumia Black" looks to deliver this.

    You do not need the black update. This works on all of my amber phones.

In addition to the answer by @Mac, Samsung has also released a very similar App-Folder app.
