If you just want to organize them, and have your favourite apps appear first you can reorder non-iTunes apps to make your favourite ones more appear first making them more accessible. Just click-and-hold the middle select button on the Apple Remote and they’ll start slowly jiggling (just like they do in iOS) Use the remote’s directional buttons to place each app where you like it and then click the Middle button on the Apple Remote again to make them stop “jiggling” and freeze in place.
