Thank havens for Nokia! Soon to be part of Microsoft, Nokia is the biggest reason why the Windows Phone platform is on an upwards trajectory. This side of Redmond’s own efforts, of course.
But surely, Microsoft would have found it difficult to attain this upwards trajectory without the Nokia brand recognition and the efforts of the Finnish company. And an important part of the puzzle are the custom apps that the company releases for users of Lumia devices.
And now, soon after the release of Windows Phone 8.1 (developer preview), Nokia has launched a new version of the App Folder application, namely 188.8.131.52. From the looks of it, it appears that this new build comes with a series of performance improvements.
This app, obviously, allows owners of Lumia handsets to easily manage the home screen on their devices by grouping their chosen applications together in, well, folders.
Users can create folders, name and rename them, and add in applications, manage folder settings, and pin them on the Start Screen. Plus, there is no apparent limit to the numbers of folders that can be created in this fashion.
App Folder is a free app, and is available on the Windows Phone Store here for Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 handsets.
