    I love them. I used to hate having to wait till the games app updated. Now I have a beautiful folder with live tiles that open instantaneously.

    Games is the first folder that I created!! Hate the performance and non-usability of the Games Hub now. It does take forever to load up at times which can be quite the hassle!

    I don't know if I like live folders or not. I like the look, but since switching on 'Use More Tiles' on my 920 and getting used to the fingertip-size tiles, I'm able to fit everything I use frequently on my screen without scrolling to see more. The only tiles that are larger are those that flash news and weather.

    At this point, I know where everything is and it's all a single tap away... I do have App Folder installed and have everything organized there by category if I'm looking for cooking apps, photo apps (way too many of those), news apps, etc.

    Frankly, the thought of using folders to stash apps reminds me of Windows 3.1...
    Frankly, when the folders are alive, it doesn't come close to Windows 3.1...

    The way that Microsoft's implemented Live Tools, it's just perfect! Sure there are a few minor tweaks most are wishing for, but it's perfect even if it doesn't change much going forward.

    I love the new folders. It's like having mini-start screens:

    LOVE it!

    I'm afraid Live Folders are going to result in me playing around with changing my Start Screen a bit too often now

    I adore them! It's fantastic. BUT!

    Basically it's exactly the same as iOS did it years ago. And we can all be so futuristic and lovely about this but fact is very simple: This should have been implemented years, years ago! It was the lack of function in Windows Phone for years, even though I just recently switched. My phone is 6 inch and I could easily live with a large start screen but the folders function gives me more of an easy approach to apps.

    And, this is my fav, it shows the background better! Note to the topic starter: Share your wallpaper! :D Please, it looks good.

    Apple may have modernized the smartphone but they in no way perfected it.



    Microsoft is taking things the whole new level and they have been.


    No one can deny that.

    Wish you could shut off animation. I have a few folders and live tiles & all the movement is getting to be a little much.
    May be going back to app folder
    You can switch off animation by making all tiles inside the folder small!

    I have to say, I never saw this one coming. These live folders are the most innovative thing I've seen in a long while...on any device. Well done WP Devs.

    A whole new level? I'm sorry but what's "a whole new level" about this folder function? That it's transparant? So is it on iOS. That you can make the tiles bigger or smaller inside the folder? Yeah, but that has nothing to do with the folder function because it was already on the phone itself. I rest my case: This should have been here 4 years earlier Microsoft.

    But it's here now.
