All of a sudden, smartphones came and there came this bare-bones, open interface where there were no folders. If you are a person who has downloaded lots and lots of apps and want to organize everything in the form of folders, the good news is that you can create folders in Android. Android gives you the flexibility to create folders and add apps to them. This way, your apps menu will have no clutter and everything will look nice and clear.
