Auto App Organization into Folders and Sections based on Play Store category
I like to keep my home screen clean by having all my apps organized into contextual folders (e.g. Games all in one place in a games folder). If you have a lot of apps though, doing this manually is time consuming, and you're always wondering if you missed an app when you install a fresh batch, especially with the 25 cent sale that's going on.
My idea to all the launcher devs like Nova and Apex would be to incorporate a option that automatically sorts your apps into folders based on their play store location. Google's already done the hard work of categorizing the apps for us, so we might as well take advantage of it. This categorization could also be extended into the apps list. Right now it's usually alphabetical, but I know I'd love an option in Nova launcher that allows me to sort them by category, perhaps even by tags. Anyway that was my bright idea, what do you guys think? :)

Please, please, PLEASE add this feature!
Also very similar to this, please make Nova Tabs be placeable onto the desktop, like you do with folders.

I agree with suggest feature.
It would also welcome that we can automatically classify google applications , so that we can either :
Sort category compared to the play store or by publisher .
I came here to mention Folder Organizer as Brent did. One of the most useful apps I've ever used for Android. It's worth checking out for those looking to organize your apps. And combined with SwipePad, I almost never access my app drawer.
Yes, add this feature to work like app that Henry recomnended below - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.zalio.android.autoappsort
But make it categorize apps and make appropriate tabs in the apps grid or make folders with categories in the default "all" tab
try this 'Auto App Category'

So almost two years and not implemented?

Aviate has this feature implemented nicely but it's not customisable. Smart folder on Nova Launcher should be added advantage. Badly wanted it.

Yeah, best option.

This is the only thing I think this launcher is missing, you have my vote!

I agree to this suggestion. Would make nova launcher a lot more effective.
