Microsoft is reportedly planning to support folders for apps on the Start Screen in Window phone 8.1.
According to The Verge, the method will work similar to iOS, where you drag one tile on top of another and it creates a folder that can then be renamed. Apps can then be accessed from within the folder.
However, to create folders on the start screen one needs to have Windows phone 8.1 update installed on their phone.
The folder functionality could work in a similar, but more native, way to the method that Nokia used to bring some folder-like functionality to Windows Phone 8 earlier this year, the report said.
