While I can certainly understand why someone would want to organize their home screen in folders I personally find that it's counterproductive. Having come from Android (where I used folders extensively) I found having a trimmed Start screen on my 928 was incredibly easy and refreshing. I only put the apps that I care about (for notifications) and / or use often on my screen and arranged them logically, using their positioning to categorize them. Oftentimes with Android I filled folders with things in the name of "categorizing" and wound up making said folders cumbersome at best. My Windows Phone, by contrast, is very minimalistic and functional.
That said, W8 has the ability to create categories in the Start menu... I see no reason why that shouldn't come over to WP8 for people who'd like to use it.

How To Install Nokia Pro Cam On Non-PureView Lumia Phones | TechTree.com
or you can download this app for $1.29 which does work BTW ProxApp | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
or you can download SysApp Pusher | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
then look for the non Nokia apps ( BUT not any that install in system(s) they won't work) and then go to your Wi-Fi setting and change to PROXY
then go back to that app and hold the back button for about 3 seconds then release it and hopefully it goes from (!) This app not available for your device...to INSTALL
you may have to do this "trick" several times to get it to change to INSTALL but if and when it does click INSTALL and it will stall So Needs attention etc will appear but don't do anything but go back to Wi-Fi and enable the WiFi to your normal settings and then the needs attention tap ( or whatever the exact language is) will be gone and it will be installing.
