    All,

    Would love to hear how to get back into my homescreen without tapping the home button twice if I am in an app from a folder. If I hit the home button, it will switch to the folder from the app, I will have to hit home button a second time to get back to home screen. Hope this makes sense.

    you can't. folders are just another "page" of the homescreen (or rather page-within-a-page). think about how if you were on 2nd or 3rd page of homescreen and opened an app from there. if you clicked home button it would close the app and be on that page and you'd have to press home button again to go back to 1st page of homescreen.

    Huh? The folder behavior has always been like this since I could remember. It's not something new in iOS 10.

    My bad, missed the "if I am in an app from a folder" part.
    @C DM
    Congrats for the cheap like.

    Cheap like? I was going to post the same thing and then saw someone else that posted it and liked it. Seems fairly typical and in line with the kind of things that a like is for. Strange thing to try to take a poke at.

    And this is one main reason why I don't use folders. A shame really, because I like to be organised...

    Basically that it takes an extra press of a button?

    Right. That isn't the case on Android. I was used to closing out of an app on Android and being taken back to the main screen. Just one less press on the home button (which I often think in time, will wear out)...

    Jailbreak will solve that depending on what OS you are on
