    Default How organized is your iOS homescreen?

    How organized is your iOS homescreen? Do you put apps in any specific order?

    I place my apps in the order of importance that I use them on a daily basis. Then each page after the first one contain the next used ones

    I ONLY use 2 pages. My first page is exactly the way it would be out of the box. Page 2 has the 3 stock apps in a Utilities folder in the top left corner. All of my downloaded apps are alphabetized. Those than can be grouped are and the folders are then alphabetized after all the ungrouped alphabetized apps. OCD? Yes

    That's the way I organized them on my iPad Mini.

    My apps are all on one screen and have been in a similar position since I first started using the iPhone

    I am very anal when it comes to the arrangement of my apps. My phone is on charge or i would include shots. I do not use any folders except on my last panel to keep in there what I will never use so why keep them out. From all my other panels I group everything according to Genre you might say meaning weather apps. Sports apps. Productivity apps. and I think you got the idea. If they are odd ball that don't really go with anything but I use them they go on the back panel. lately I have made up my mind if i don't use them I remove them.

    The main 4 as I call them left to right is Phone, Contacts, Mail, Messages.

    My first page is Apple's stock apps. Second is the apps I use most with the like apps together (i.e. social networking apps). Third is apps I don't use regularly but still need on my phone.

    I have everything on one page, organized as social, utilities I frequently use, music and news, messaging and folders for everything else. My dock has the phone, mail, safari and Google search app. I rarely change this arrangement.

    Will post pictures later, if anyone wants them..

    Home screen almost default with a few changes..

    2nd screen all Folders - I organize my folders by actions

    Here is a good reference about how to set it up. - Organize Your Apps by Action Instead of Category for a More Intuitive Find-and-Launch System

    Folders work best for me. I've tried every way there is, but always go back to folders.

    I use two and half pages. All my apps are organized by how much I use them. I have one folder with some stock apps that I never use like compass and voice notes.

    Default How organized is your iOS homescreen?

    I'm less picky on my iPad but on my iPhone I guess I'm pretty picky. So I always have the first page set up like this. The dock is my four most used apps (except messages which I have to keep at the top left because of muscle memory haha), then I always have just Apple apps (well just the ones I actually use), then I have instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook and that's it. The second page is just random folders I have like games, entertainment, misc. etc . . .

    Alright I see you guys tease each other all the time and I just couldn't resist this one...
    pr1nce, perfect folder to have those two apps in. When you are lost you can use the voice notes to record your attempt to use the compass! Perfect pairing
