      Which Android version are you using? This tutorial is based on Android 4, if you are using Android 2.x instructions are different. Just long press on an empty space on your Android home and then create a shortcut or a widget

    Just succeeded in placing my first folder. I missed the search for the widget.

    Android 4.1.1 FO version 3.6.5 missing the “show text under icon” tick box… would be nice to have back.

    Can we still customize (clean up) the appearance of expanded folders? I just moved from froyo to ics. I had customized the appearance of folders for minimalism; I mean I took off the star, gear, and x icons so I just see the label cleanly. Where did that option go?

    Please help or advise. I have created a label called Navigation and have been able to add some apps to it. Problem now is that I can move the label to one of the main screens. I am using the Samsung Galexay S4. What am I doing wrong or not doing?
    Thanks very much.

    All of the items and threads here are a year or two old. But then there isn’t much support in the official support group either, so here goes. Having a bug on the paid version where the widget icons are 25% smaller than existing desktop icons. Does anyone have an idea how to correct the widget size? Android 4.4.2, 1920×1080 screen, S5.

    I tried it. I had some of the same questions as other users. Saw no answers. This app needs a manual.
