    Finding lots of "what's new" info but not how to use it.

    How the heck do you create a folder in 4.2.1?

    Hold down an app until it wiggles then drag it on top of the app you want in the same folder. You can put up to 12 apps in the same folder!

    Tap the Home button when you are finished. And yes, you can rename the folder!

    Thanks.

    Not exactly intuitive and a bit strange.

    Am I the only one left the prefers to read instructions rather than watch a video?

    Dragging one icon onto another to make a group is not intuitive? Its about as simple a method as they come.

    Neither icon is a folder. Dragging an app onto an app to create a folder seems like parking one car on top of another and expecting it to become a garage.

    But its not really a "folder" its a group. It is called a folder since that is the common vernacular. But if you are placing one item in the same space as another it makes sense it would create a cluster of both items.

    Makes more sense once you do it, but I never would have found it without instruction.

    Functions as a folder and looks like a folder no matter what it "really" is. Just is not created like a folder on a desktop OS.

    Slightly off subject... Can the grey-scale crappy folder background be changed?
