Hi,

when I go into the "installed apps" homefolder, how do I start an app from that folder.

I know I can make a button and start an app from there, but I think the "installed apps" homefolder is a really nice way to quickly find an app.

If this functionality does not exist, would you please add it?

I think it would be really useful.

You can't, sorry. This folder is meant to manage installed apps, not to launch them. Why would you want to do that? There is already the Android launcher and the Android desktop, which are more convenient...

I don't know about your phone, but I have the SE Xperia X8 and the desktop means swiping through loads of screen until I reach the right one. They are also not arranged alphabetically.

Launching from TCA would be much easier, I can quickly scroll to the alphabetically or otherwise sorted apps and have it right there. Much better!

you can do it over "Add/Edit button"
--> function type --> Launch app (main function)
Then the button next to "Command:" and you'll get a list of all installed programs.
After that you have new button with the app you wanna launch.
