    Do we know how iPhone OS 4 will handle apps that are lumped into folders and have badge icons (via push notifications or otherwise)?

    I'm hoping there will be an option for the folder to have its own badge icon that sums all the badge icons in the folder. It would be nice to lump applications that get badge notifications into one folder. This would at least provide some form of notification management until Apple solves the problem. Granted this won't work for applications that use the badge icons for things like temperature.

    Thoughts?

    You get an exclamation point instead of a number badge. Letting you know to go deeper to see what notifications exist.

    Can you create nested folders?

    As a tree:

    Games
    |- Action
    |-- Action game 1
    |-- Action game 2
    |- Sports
    |-- Sports game 1
    |-- Sports game 2

    Is that allowed?

    Hold down an app icon until they shake. Drag one icon on top of another. Then drag more icons onto the folder that was created.

    That works. Is this something you heard, are guessing, or validated in the SDK?
