    I haven't installed windows phone 8.1 developer's preview yet and waiting for the official release but can anyone tell me if we're getting an app folder or not..? I downloaded a free app folder manager on windows store and it sucked cause I was limited to what apps I can put in there..

    This link says we are getting an app folder if its true I would be one happy camper...

    If you're referring to organizing your apps into folders, it's not part of the preview and I doubt it'll be there on the official release.

    I think it's talking about native folder support like iOS and Android. WP currently uses an app to create folders.

    iOS and Android have the same app folder system. It's not a folder app at all. It's simply dragging & dropping one shortcut on top of another one.

    Kay thanks for the explanation.. I wouldn't really know as I have only worked with it on my girlfriends phone (5s).. It does seem handy tho especially for grouping apps that are similar to each other.. I know there is an app in the store that gives us the ability to do this and add transparent tiles at the same time, but i haven't gotten around to testing it yet

    Sorry friend, but cyan has already been delivered to many phones. Folder 📁 support may come in another update. May be with that lock screen app or in GDR1.

    People need to stop taking for granted that users own a Nokia phone. If this user was a newcomer and was using an HTC or Samsung, he'd be confused. :)

    According to Thurrott, the app folder which was due to be released in 8.1 Cyan and was mentioned in the US on the 8.1 Cyan update page has been removed from the 8.1Cyan release, I also need to re read the article because I have a feeling Thurrott mentioned 3d touch was also part of Cyan but was also removed, although it is thought they will come in the updates that follow Cyan full launch

    There is already an App Folder in WP 8 Black. I've been using it on my 1520 since I got the phone last week.

    Here's a snapshot:

    yes, but i think the rumors point to something along the lines of iOS folders where users can drag and drop multiple apps to create a folder.

    I used folders app in wp8... I was one of the first, but i uninstalled the app after it was reported that the app caused the phone to randomly crash every now and then.. I know the dev has probably fixed it since then, but i just couldn't bring myself to download it again
