    You have to long press an app icon until it starts to wiggle. Then you can move around the apps to your liking.

    You can also create folders and name the! To do this, move one on top of another and a folder is created. Here’s are my folders how to rearrange my phone apps-img_4600.jpg

    They're labeled. So if you want BeWeather, you look in the Weather folder. Words With Friends in the Games folder. And so on. 6 years ago I used about 8 screen pages, with each page with a theme. But as I got more and more apps, that no longer worked well for me. I've tried not using folders a couple times since, but always go back to them. I wish Apple would let us use nested folders.

    Nested folders would be awesome!

    I tend to avoid folders (have a few with apps that I hardly ever use), mainly because of the function.
    When one opens an app from the folder, and you then close the app, it takes you back to the folder. Why not to the 'Home Screen'?

    Slowly getting used to it, but, don't like it.

    PS: liking those with folders icons/emojis...

    Because that's where the app is you closed. Just tap the screen, and you're back in the homescreen.

    True, but, hard to not think about this considering Android closes to the Home Screen.

    Alas, I digress. Don't want to derail the thread (too far)

    Well, the iPhone is not an Android. If it bothers you that much, either don't use folders or go to an Android.

    Well that was kind of mean.

    Just a hint, if you are dragging an app to a folder or another screen, use another finger to swipe apps into the dragged app to bunch up multiple apps for the same move

    Thanks for the tip! I’ll have to give that a try, if i can figure it out. Im a bit of a klutz and this may be a bit awkward for me!
