Please allow users to place media apps into folders like we now can with games.

Good idea! I was just thinking, yesterday, that its such a pain to have to go all the way over and then all the way to the bottom of the list just to watch HBO GO.

This would be a huge improvement. We don’t need Video Apps placed in your special folder anymore now that we can do it ourselves.

Having the ability to lock apps to a certaint location would be a blessing compared to the constantly shuffling list of apps we have right now.

It’s absolutely ridiculous that we’re required to scroll to the bottom of the list to open YouTube or Netflix or whatever app. At the very least, our downloaded apps should appear at the top of the list.

I alos support this. At the very least move our installed apps to the top of the TV & Video folder. If I haven’t downloaded the 15 other apps by now, I’m not gonna.

They should get rid of the TV & Video folder altogether and let us organize these apps in our own folders.

Love this idea. There are TV & Video apps that I am never going to use. It would be nice to have the option to delete or hide them. Even folders would be a step up. As of now I scroll passed a handful of apps I never use to get to HBO Now, which keeps moving around to different positions on the grid.

Seconded! Especially now that the “new TV & video experience” is rolling out, which makes it even more annoying to access my most used media apps, I desperately need this.

TV & Video experience update is awful, I hate the fact that it takes time to load and there is no pattern to the apps listed, at least put the ones purchased/used at the beginning.

Please Sony, at least roll back the new TV & Video experience. The apps I’ve installed are now disappearing off the right side of the screen, pushed away by icons for apps I don’t have. Stop!

This is the worst thing I have ever seen from a console. I can’t move apps around? I can’t get rid of Hulu and WWE?! I don’t have any interest in any of the things I don’t pay for or want. Is that surprising? That kind of marketing makes me actively block and ignore the products and encourage others to do the same. Show some class and listen to the customer and not the board, Sony.

Playstation, please help us out here. I just bought a new PS4 primarily because I was looking for a high quality device allowing me to play Blu-Rays and also stream Netflix, HBOGo, Amazon, etc. I was so excited today when I downloaded all the necessary apps only to be immediately disappointed to see the pain I am going to have always sifting and sorting through ads for apps I don’t want. Please let me put the apps I want to use in a spot where I can easily access them. This is a terrible user experience.
