Mark had suggested ‘Folder’ or ‘Tile Collections’ option in Windows Phone 7 last week. Yesterday, we provided an insight about a new concept called resizable or small tile option to get rid of infinite scrolling. Moreover it gives a better way to organize tiles according to need. How about having a folder or say Tile Collection concept?
Android and iOS already provides a Folder option where you can group all the applications or programs into a single folder according to their functionality, use or other means. Shockingly, Windows Phone 7 is missing such option. Moreover having a limit of 300 tiles on home screen may put you in a trouble in case you use your WP7 device a lot. BBC News app for mango already provides an option of ‘pinned feed’ which shows up on home screen as a tile when applied. We will eventually run out of tiles if we keep adding tiles on home screen.
WP7 Folders option
Folder concept in WP7 would be a nice option to organize all the programs on homepage. Organizing program(s) in a folder makes home screen more informative and needless to say clutter less. This would be a welcome move in Microsoft implements it in a next major update.
WPCentral has provided some interesting images to make the concept more clear. It would be interesting to see this concept taking shape in reality. Microsoft WP7 developers, are you listening? iOS already provides a simple drag and drop feature to create folder.
