How to organize your iPhone
This entry was posted on Tuesday, November 1, 2011.
I finally decided to get myself an iPhone after all the hype that it has received. Being new to the iPhone, I was very excited with the amount of apps that were available. There is an app for almost everything, so of course my Home Screen was totally cluttered. One of the best features of the iPhone is the way in which it allows me to organize at least one part of my hectic life.
It took me a while before I figured out how to fully utilize the organizational features of my iPhone. Let me just share a few quick tips to help you organize your iPhone so at least, like mine, one part of your life would be clutter free.
Using folders help you to put all those scattered apps into one place where they are easily accessible to you. The folder that you place your apps in would state the name of the app inside the folder.
In order to create a folder, tap and hold down the app icon which would send it into edit mode. When your icons start to wiggle, place one app on top the other by dragging it across. Once this is done, you will be able to change the name of the folder, of course while you are in edit mode, to a name of your choice. When completed, all you have to do is hit the Home button to come out of exit mode.
If you would like to add more apps to your folder, return to edit mode and drag the app into folder. You can add up to twelve apps on your iPhone.
Even after giving your folder name you can go back and reedit the folder, as well as its content. Once again you enter into edit mode and drag apps in as well as out of your folder. To change the name of the folder, just tap on it.
Note however that in order to delete a folder you would need to remove all the apps that occupied the folder.
