    morning all
    when i go on to the apps screen they are in a random order, 5 pages but seem to be in no order. I think these used to be in alphabetical order making a certain app easier to find but now they are not.
    Is it possible to rearrange these?

    thanks for looking

    From the Home screen: Apps > Menu > swipe up from the bottom ('wallpapers', etc.) > Sorting Mode > Title/Launch Count/Install Time.

    Hit home,
    Hit apps (dotted circle),
    Hit hardware lines, next to home key,
    Hit sort, and select.
