Poll: Do you have any use for folders in Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1?


Microsoft recently released Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 for developers, which introduces a number of new features and enhancements which further align the operating system with competing platforms. One new feature in Update 1 is Live Folders, something Android and iOS have had for a long time now, but I’m struggling to find a use for them. Do you have any use for Live Folders?

I’ve been struggling ever since Update 1 was released to try and setup folders, but I just can’t find apps that I would want to go in a folder. All the icons on my Start Screen are designed to display information to me without opening them, so I don’t see why putting them into a folder would be useful. I’d rather be able to just glance at a tile without needing to open a folder first.

So my question is, do you have a use for folders on Windows Phone? If so, let us know in the comments section below how you use them, what apps you group and how you think it makes the use of your start screen easier.
