Can I create a folder and put shortcuts for the apps, which I use frequently, in it like desktop shortcuts on a computer?

Drag an app on top of another one. This will automatically create a folder ( which you can rename ). Drag and drop whichever ones you want into that folder.

I have organised different apps in different folders but I don't use them all quite often. I use just few of them frequently. What I want to do is that I need a folder in which i can put shortcuts to those apps and access frequently used apps in it. Please look at my screenshot to get an idea. Thanks.

As far is I know, there is not a way to create a "shortcut" for an app like you can on a computer. In a sense, the app icons are already shortcuts to the applications they represent, and you're only allowed one. The dock and the first two home pages is where I keep my most frequently used apps. I keep them "out in the open" and not in folders so I can access them more quickly. Some apps allow you to create widgets for quick access, but that is on an app-by-app basis.

No, but Siri App Suggestions and the app switcher work well for what you want to do. Pull down on the home screen (not the status bar) to invoke Siri App Suggestions. It has icons/shortcuts to your most recently used 8 apps. Double tap the home button to get to the task manager and skim through your recent/frequent apps.

I'm curious... just how many apps do you have on your phone? 11 pages all with folders filled up like that?
