    I'm a folder freak.
    Without folders, with all my apps jumbled up on my screen, my eyes glaze over and I can never find anything.
    Folders totally simplify my life.

    I use folders to organize everything so it's easier to find.

    I use folders for better organization on my home screen and they work perfectly for me.

    I put the apps that I use the most on my first screen with no folders. After that everything else is grouped into folders.
    I also use folders and mostly on page 2 but also some on the page 1 (homescreen). But for apps that i need to access a lot i didn't put them in a folder.
    Aside from that i also love to use the Launcher widget in the Notification Center to access favorite apps, settings and also for e.g. tweeting.

    When i can't find an app quickly (that i don't use much) then i use the Apple search feature to find and quickly access it.

    With Android, everything had a folder or a widget. With Windows Phone, it was about 50-50. On iPhone? Almost EVERYTHING is in a folder. Clutter-free. :-)

    I use them on games (one folder) and on not-so-frequently used apps.

    I use folder more on my iPad. I tend to forget the apps are there if they are hidden in a second page of a folder.

    I'm curious if most users here use folders to organize their apps. Personally, I find that I lose track of what I have and don't have when I use folders, because I can see the icon easily if it's on the home screen. However, I think I'm gonna have to use folders because I have too many icons on my screen to tell where anything is.

    What about you? Folders or no folders? How do you have your home screen organized?


    When I had an iPhone 4 I hated folders so I had like 6-8 pages of apps.


    With the amount of apps I have on my iPhone 6 plus which has 167 apps I would have a lot more pages so to be sane and remembering where everything is I put them in folders. If this was android it would of been easier with the app drawer. That's actually one of the things I would love ios to have imo

    I use folders because I have so many apps, but I don't like folders so they are all on the 2nd page, never on the main homepage. I also don't like to see loads of apps in my folders so I always have only three apps on show with the rest hidden in the folder.

    i think using folders is a wise idea because it keep your stuff organised, if you dont use folders and keep downloading Apps you gonna have a mess in your iPhone

    I have two folders and eight pages of beautiful app icons. I like looking at all the different icons and colors as I scroll thru them. I try and leave my apps in one place on each page. The first six pages are in the order of use and the final two pages are "any thing goes"...LOL

    I prefer to use folders only because of the sheer number of apps that I do use which are on my iPhone. The folders help to reduce the look of "clutter."

    I keep all my apps in folders. When I used Android & Blackberry I never used folders but ever since my iPhone 4S I've always used folders.

    I always keep a blank Homescreen Page to the left to hide my folders so no one would know how I've got my apps organised, that way I can also show off my Wallpaper as well. I find folders on the dock very useful for Messaging apps, phone apps & Health apps as I've then always got access to them instead of having to cherry pick which apps go on my Dock.

    Page 1 and 2 of my phone are single apps, the ones I use daily and the ones I use at the gym/health tracking. Pages 3-5 are all folders for everything else.

    I actually like that idea....It almost sounds like windows phone(where my apps are to the right of the start screen) and it is a good way to show your wallpaper like you said. I am going to actually try to adjust to the folders...I may as well give it a try and go all in with the iPhone since iam experimenting with IOS. Who knows, I may like it

    I've done that since I got my iPhone 4S almost 2 years ago, but used to only have one app in each of the 4 spots on the Dock until last year when I discovered you could have folders in the Dock. I continued to do that when I added a fifth Generation iPod Touch to my iPhone 4S & have done the same now I've got an iPhone 6 Plus.
