    I used to have apps in their categorized drawers. I'm not OCD, I swear. But it helped me get to my oft-used apps in less than 2 clicks.

    It's been 3 months or so since I've just let it go because my last re-install. It's the freakin' wild west in here.

    While I miss the two click wonder, I don't think I will spend another 3-4 hours to organizing and setting up my phone the way I like it. You know why?

    Because there's no backup and restore option. I have to use BB Content Transfer AND cross fingers with Google restore hoping it's all going to restore as it is. And currently, apparently, theres no way to save ringtone settings and homescreen settings.

    Oh, and due to the lack of this... I haven't upgraded to Key2.

    I like to have just one home screen. I've also never had an issue when doing a full restore via my Google account bringing back my folder setup. I use to have a social, video, music and misc folder.

    I no longer due that on my KeyOne though.. I know have one folder on my dock. it has 12 of my most used apps. There is also keyboard shortcuts. Anything else I'm OK with going to all apps to look for. This has worked way easier.

    I have only 1 page with several icons using Nova launcher. BB stock launcher doesn't fit my needs as it doesn't have a possibility to include Google Now page on the left which I use very often for checking news, weather and for googling.
