(This should be solved first by moving things around a bit.)

where users add custom entries they want to see either in all or in specific 
apps. Those are highly specialized folders in my experience, depending on 
user's workflows and not something we could predict. Better leave some space so 
users can customize themselves.

  I disagree about the search entries - they are incredibly useful, again for 
lay users, or just those with not much time, searching for an image, document, 
or pdf - not knowing which folder they are in - are incredibly common tasks 
that warrant prime location for all to discover.
