    His point was that the app folder takes up the space of 4 small tiles, and if there are only 4 tiles in the app folder, it's kind of pointless. I agree, other than for perhaps an aesthetic difference.
    The small tile only shows 4 apps but you can put in more than 2 dozen apps in a folder, IF it's PHOTO then you know it's photo and you open it, you can't tap the tiny tile within the small tile anyway, you have to tap the tile folder and open it to use any of the apps in the app folder. That's the purpose.

    At first I didn't care for it, but the more I play with it, the more I really like the new folders.

    The only thing about the folders that bothers me is that I wish they would launch faster. It's not like it's loading up a whole lot of data. Just a short list of app IDs and enough code behind it to launch the app that's tapped. Not much at all, I would think.

    I think that Microsoft should be providing app folders, not Nokia. The feature should be built into the OS. This system requires opening an app to access the apps inside. That's why it's slow.

    Kinda slow that's for sure, but creating a folder just for audio and pinning it where it's right in the middle of the screen is a hellava lot faster than opening settings and scrolling down to almost the bottom and then opening audio when I'm listening to music with headphones. Maybe with Black developers will be able to access audio with a shortcut - the OS prevents them currently so it's doubtful, this is the next best thing.

    Someone else in another forum mentioned it'd be pretty cool to put Xbox Music artists in a folder.

    Yeah, I know.... And yes, it would be better if Microsoft would do it so that it's not an app opening.

    It would have been nice if it would have allowed you to create app folders in the app list screen, as well as the start screen, my app list is way to long lol, and the problem with deleting rarely used apps from my phone is, well... they wouldn't be there when i rarely wanted to use them LOL

    For me, it would be nice to be able to add internet shortcut tiles into the App Folders, but then they couldn't call it "App Folders" now could they? It would have to be just a "Folders" option... Which is why it should be built into the os...

    The app folder can be reduced to a single tile.

    if there are only 4 tiles in the app folder, it's kind of pointless.
    Not if you like things organized and uncluttered.

    Deleted a few apps that I don't use and tiles are back working. Folders aren't perfect but I still like this app.

    It can also be made into a wide tile. But since we were talking about four tiles, it was obvious that we were talking about the medium tile. Apparently we should have said so for those either without the ability to figure that out or the proclivity to get snarky when someone isn't specific enough for them.

    Yeah, the speed needs to pick up a little. You can do contacts from you address book so why have them in the app folder. A sort of notification would be good if it's a live tile. Maybe able to choose different tile colors as well. I'm sure they'll add more stuff, just have to wait like everything else.

    LOL, nothing snarky intended, just pointing out the obvious.

    To update the live tile should you uninstall one of the apps.

    Read the description when you open the background task. It tells you what the background task does
