    I have found a first bug in the Folders...

    When you restore from back up.. and you had folders with app store apps and default ones (like me.. Safari and Opera Mini in folder Internet).. If you didnt install those apps. You will end up with a folder made up of one app..

    Thats not a Bug. You restored from backup. Backups don't install the apps you had before. You have to install them yourself. Plus iTunes copies the iPhone data and files. It remember where you left everything exactly.

    What they mean is, it's not a bug. You restored from a back-up and you need to install the apps you has before.

    If you create a folder, then empty it down to one app, it'll also be a folder containing one app (it doesn't automatically destruct the folder, you have to remove the last app from it). So this is by design, and can be seen through normal usage too.

    ^^^Exactly what he said. It is a design and a feature, I had the same thing happen, removed apps from a folder, except for one and the whole folder stayed there. It's actually kinda helpful.

    How is that helpful? it just take space... I understand if it was blank.. Like we had before.. the Blank apps to help themes look better.. But this is just weird.

    And fine.. It's not a bug. Apparently its a "Feature".

    It takes up no more space than if it was just app there. When you want to make a new folder or redesign it (what you want it for) it could be useful. It all depends on the end user.
