    When you drag an app over another app and it creates a folder, how is the folder name determined? I assumed it was the category name of the app you're dragging, but that doesn't always seem to be the case. At least when Apple apps are involved. Examples:

    Drag SoundHound over Notes -> Music (this makes sense)
    Drag Notes over SoundHound -> Productivity
    Drag Notes over Settings -> Utilities
    Drag Notes over Passbook -> Productivity
    Drag Notes over Voice Memos -> Utilities
    Drag Voice Memos over Notes -> Business

    I've no idea…

    But you could just name it yourself and avoid the problem!

    Right, just trying to understand. I'll stop thinking about it until iOS7 comes out and I check it out there.

    I am probably wrong on this, but I feel like they have tags on them in the play store, so then the way the system is it can figure out what to call the folders due to the tags on them

    Yes, it appears to be the category name of the app you're dragging (as I mentioned above). My question was how it works for the Apple apps, because as you can see from the examples, that breaks down. Not a big deal, just thought there might be a dev that knew.
