press the menu button while you're in the app screen, you can only sort alphabetically or by most used, no other options are available

Odd how some basic things like that are missing, particularly now that the watch face control is so sophisticated.

I would really like to make folders. I don't think swiping pages and pages of icons is very efficient. six folders of categories. I'd do: Coms, games, phone utilities, location/gps, music

with two presses I'd find all the apps I need. Not like now where I need to swipe, chreck, swipe , check, swipe, oh I reached the end I guess I missed it, swipe back, check, swipe back oh there it is.

Making folders is not possible. But you can arrange app icons according to their usage. This will help you work on ur smart watch more efficiently.

Only thing you can do is arranged according usage, and keep tap the app you want order to front, then press home button if app started.
You can turn off bluetooth first in order to avoid app start.

When SW2 reset, this order will turn to default too. So after reset(or reset by itself), you have to reorder it again.

I agree, I prefer the manual sort of the SW1.

Automatic arrange may be good but it is lost each time SW2 reset when app crash....
