How do I add an app to the Favorites category?

How do I add an app to the Favorites category? Couldn't find it in help or searching this forum.

 

Thanks.

Tap and hold an icon on the home screen until the icons start to pulsate.  Then you can tap and drag an icon up to the Favorites heading or move icons around.  If there is a garbage can under an icon, you can also delete the icon, which also removes the app from the Playbook.

 

When you tap and hold an icon on the Favorites page, you'll see an X under all of the icons.  Pressing the X removes the icon from Favorites, but does not remove the app from the Playbook.

there is a tab for all bridge icons, maybe they thought it would suffice for everyone. hopefully some themes can be made for the playbook to satisfy your need in the future

Hope someone sees this - my issue also - I tap on the icon and only thing that happens for me is that the app opens...what am I doing wrong?
