    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?

    I don't use them. I've never liked them. I understand that others do and that's good. If they work for you, great. If not, great. My phone screens look the way I want them to, and that's what matters to me. Everyone should arrange their screens in ways which make sense to them. 😃

    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 use two folders so that all of my apps are contained to one page

    Of course ! you start off with all the unwanted Apple undeleteable stuff and push it to an unused page. Then you put all the little used and similar stuff in folders.So, now you don't have to scroll through too many pages to see all the apps you have.

    I only have 2 pages on my home screen...the untouched out of the box first page with calendar maps etc and a page with my downloaded apps. I keep the social apps in a "social" folder ONLY to ensure that I only have 1 page outside of the untouched stock first page.

    What he said. My go to apps are loose on the first screen and all others are gathered into folders.

    Once I got into the habit of using spotlight to find and open apps, I've stopped caring about remembering where they all are, folder or not

    But I can't remember all the app names. And Siri and I had a falling out a while back. I have to admit she's better behaved since I restored my phone as new. I'll give her one more chance.

    I put less frequently used apps in folders and my go-to everyday apps I leave on the screen. Makes more sense to me since I like to just hit on the app button rather than search for it.

    Yes, I use folders.

    I have the main home page and a 2nd page with my other apps. My 1st page consists of apps and folders of apps I use the most. My second page is strictly folders, 2 rows to be exact, of folders. All of my apps in the folders are in alphabetical order and then the folders are lined up in alphabetical order as well. My main page is also all alphabetical order.

    Not too ocd 👌

    I don't particularly like how folders look. So, I have one folder which I call "Launchpad" a la OS X, in which I put all apps not on my one and only main screen. Most apps that are not on my home screen, I launch with Spotlight. Spotlight is a habit I have on my iOS devices and MacBook.

    I can't function without the folders. I only use one screen on my iphone and ipad. It maximizes my app space too.

    No, I don't. Moreover, I don't have bunch of apps on my iPhone..just three pages including the stock one and still there's space to accommodate two more apps!

    I use folders to keep track of my apps and minimise the number of screens I have. I'm able to fit everything on 2 pages by using folders. Otherwise it would just be rows and rows of apps and I'd loose track of what I've got.

    With folders I can compartmentalise my apps.

    When I used android devices I'd set up my home screens with my most used apps and various widgets but there were lots of apps in my app draw that I'd just forget were on my phone.

    I find once I got past two pages I was spending more time looking for the apps than I wanted. What really messed me up was when I updated the iOS and it put apps onto my phone and messed up the order where I would search for apps.

    I use folders for organization. If I want to locate an app, I use spotlight search.
