Update
I have moved on to TSF Shell. It has all the features of Xperia & more. Worth the price too.

If you create a folder it will not last. While the workaround fixes the loss of icons. Lossed folders are also a consequence of the initial bug.
In fact may be the cause of the bug.

Those on launcher pro plus OR nova launcher can put the xperia app drawer in place of the stock app drawer. Xperia drawer button in center, Nova button on right.


Xperia drawer


On the msm8960's, which includes the x, the launcher is marred by the Bootup condition where (sometimes) homepage icons/shortcuts are missing. A launcher/settings > restart launcher is a fix.

I found an easy workaround:
Install. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tics.auto.exec
Set xperia to boot with the max 30 sec delay (shorter may work too).

Dev is no longer supporting this launcher http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2103403

Can you sort apps by install time?
If you use launcher pro plus or Nova prime, you get tremendous shortcut creation features, to the level that you may add the xperia app drawer to the LPP bar instead of the stock drawer.
