I am probably just missing it, but is there a way to make folders in the app drawer screen? I have the default google folder but I can't seem to create my own (or remove any apps from the google folder). Thanks.

Pretty sure you just drag one app on top of the other to create a folder. Then just drag other apps in to add.

Right, but it seems like that can only be done on the home screen panels, not in the app drawer.

Go to app drawer, tap menu, tap "view apps by" and select "user customized".

While you're still in app drawer tap menu again, select "edit/uninstall apps"

Now drag an icon onto another icon to place them into a folder together.

While in edit mode you can open a folder and drag all the apps out of it to delete the folder.
