Having Fun with Folders in iOS

Having Fun with Folders in iOS

Folders surely seem like the most underused element of iOS version 4.2. We all know that folders are useful. We can arrange our files in different folders so that things aren’t so cluttered. For example, movies go into the Movies folder, and audio files go in the Songs folder. And with them, you can group similar types of apps. For example, Zinio, Goodreader and Instapaper etc can all go in the Reading Apps folder. This way you can reduce the time it takes to use apps.

Making and Managing Folders

Making a folder is simple. Just drag an icon of an app on another one and iOS will make a folder and name it according to the app category. Overlap two gaming apps and the folder will be named Games. Of course you can later rename that folder to the name you want, but even if you didn’t want to, Apple has already named it for you- and that too- appropriately.

This task can also be performed in iTunes directly by selecting iPad in sidebar, and clicking on Apps tab given at the top. You can then drag icons over each other like you did on iPad. When you have created a folder, iTunes will be a great way to move all the apps around.

Launch apps with Spotlight

If you swipe the screen to the right side of the home screen, you will see Spotlight search. Here you can type the app name that you want to start, and it will come in search results. Click the icon to begin it. Spotlight is a great app and it helps you search within apps.

When you double click on the home button, it presents the apps that you have used recently. They can be run from there as well. If the app supports multi tasking, it will load quickly and display the latest app state while it was running.

Have you noticed how littered are iDevices without folders? We hope the post was useful to you. Let us know what you think.
