TiPb challenge: Show off your Folders!
So you've got iOS 4 now, and you've got Folders. Well, we want to see 'em!
Post a screen shot of your best Folder set up and tell us why it's the best.
How are you using them? How are you organizing them? Are you putting any in the dock? Are you using them to help get things done or just better keep track of your fun?
What's in your Folders?

Still working on the screens. Rather that trying to come up with some convoluted way of fitting everything onto one screen, I am keeping with the idea that each screen has it's use.
My "Games" screen, for example, has most of the apps sorted by Genre, with the games I play the most on the screen itself, not in a folder.
I have one folder in the dock as well for quick use apps that I don't want taking up too much space BUT that I do want access to at any screen.

When I got my iPad I cleaned up my phone so I only had 3 homescreens. So I've now gotten it down to 1 using folders.
I put all the stock icons except for the high use ones ie. phone, Safari, Settings in a folder called "Apple" then I put all my other apps into appropriate folders
Productivity- All my most used and organizational apps
Notes- All my text editing related apps
Language Tools- All my language lesson apps
Twitter- All my twitter related apps
Games- All my gaming apps
Mobile Me Tools- All Mobile Me associated apps
Information- All my information type apps ie. Wikipanion, yellowpages, etc.
the loose apps are the ones that didn't fit into a category or I would only have 1 icon in a folder which is pretty pointless and ugly.

Upgrading to an iPhone 4, but this is how I have my 3G set up in the meantime (hence the lack of cool wallpaper):
Kept the default apps I think I use the most out, The Bible app for obvious reasons, and SoundHound because I have grabbed many a song in places with it, and tend to need it on the fly. Folders are pretty straightforward; I combined Reference and Productivity apps because their uses to me somewhat overlap.
All of my games are on the second page, to lessen the temptation to waste time playing them. The Vuvuzela app is out on its own because I know its novelty will wear off as soon as the World Cup ends.

Here's the setup on my 3GS. I wanted to keep the main Home screen as stock as possible (just cuz I like it like that ) but then I have another screen w/all my folders. So far I like the folders better than using Categories when JBroken.
From seven pages of apps & games down to two!

Here's my home page. Down from 8 to 1.5. The second page has three folders of games vie downloaded from free app-a-day and that I never play. As you can see I've put three folders on the dock; I like the fact that if I get an email, the badge shows up on the folder and not just the mail icon.

Here are my 5 pages of 54 folder. Total of about 500 apps.
(Sorry about how the link isn't clickable, I'm new here so they won't let me put photos or links.)
What do you guys think? how could I improve?
