    Default Manage icons on the main menu.

    Is there any way to re-arrange the icons of the apps in the main menu of the N4? I really dont like to see all the icons over there and would like to make some order in there but i was not able to find a way to do it.

    I think the main menu is entirely alphabetical and you cant change it. Perhaps there is an app for it....there always seems to be an app to do the most random things....

    Do you mean the App Drawer or the actual home screen?

    This he means app drawer where the app and widgets are selectable from to move to the home screens.

    Yeah that's what I thought as well. In that case I know Nova Launche Prime actually provides many options for managing icons in the App Drawer such as the creation folders and even hiding certain apps (System Apps for instance). I haven't upgraded to Prime as of yet, but I've been seriously considering it just for these options.

    I know nova launcher has a free version...but I am not sure how much flexibility it provides in terms of what you can do on that free version. Think Apex has a free version as well? Not sure and I cant check it right now unfortunately.

    I can definitely say the free version of Nova won't let you do this. You would have to spend the 4$ to updated to Prime.
