I'm not good at English. So i will write my app suggestion shortly. Below is a great app organizer i have found and tested recently:

Glextor App & Folder Organizer:

By the way, "Apps Organizer"(submitted by site editor) is dead. Please remove it!
I'm glad to contribute something to Gizmo Freeware!

Thanks swatqag for your kind comment. Apps Organizer has now been excluded from the list.

Very disappointed with Go Launcher. As of September 2017 it's full of intrusive ads. I'm uninstalling.

I noticed that the last update on this review was in May of 2016. I was going to try out Go Launcher but it wants access to your entire phone including camera and microphone. It will also annoy you with constant ads on the free version. Some users say it is heavy on resources as well I decided not to install. I mainly wanted to get rid of icon descriptions so I tried EVIE launcher. No permissions required for install. Works great and in "Settings" you can enable what "Read Badges" you want enabled like for your message icon or phone icon. It has widgets you can enable and icon grid adjustments It doesn't use a lot of resources either.

I've found Nova is among best ones. Go Launcher is become too much Ady...
