Let me tell you more about a new app called Super Shortcut which lets you access a list of apps upon being long pressed. Made by XDA Senior Member Geeks Empire, Super Shortcut gives you the chance to either choose your favorite apps or select your most used apps, and create app shortcuts for accessing these apps directly onto its own icons.
What’s more, Super Shortcut is also open source and available on XDA Labs, so who’d even want to ever think of a traditional folder? And I don’t know how you like to keep things, but you can definitely see it as a way of de-cluttering your home screen too.

Is this what you also have in mind? The app is supposed to be compatible with any device running at least on Android 7.1.1, yet I must tell you from the start that there are still some small compatibility issues under radar. There is nothing serious thought, so don’t freak out.
