Users can finally organize their applications by placing them within folders! This ability requires iOS4.0 and higher for the iPhone and iPod Touch. iPad users will need to update to at least iOS4.2
Scrolling through screens and screens of applications is not a very efficient way to keep a phone organized. In iOS4, users can use a series of folders to keep their applications better sorted.
Folders on the iPhone / iPod Touch can hold 12 icons; the iPad folders will hold 20.
1. Tap and hold your finger over an app until you enter the edit mode. The icons will shake. This starts just like the user was going to move an app to a different page. Most of the apps with have black X’s in the upper left-hander corner.
2. Slide one app onto the top of another app that you want to place in a folder together.
3. Name your folder
4. Continue to slide additional apps into that folder.
Here’s an example:
Hold game A until the black Xs appear. Slide game A onto game B until it creates a folder. Name the folder. Drag the rest of your games into that folder.
How Do I Delete a Folder?
Just drag all the apps out of the folder and it will disappear.
