    So I just bought my first iPad (a 4th gen), and I absolutely love it.

    But I'm torn. And this may seem stupid, but I can't figure out what I like better. Apps in category folders (much more boring looking) or all my apps alphabetized (harder to navigate, but prettier).

    So how do you organize your apps?

    I group certain apps together in a folder. I have a folder of games, news, utilities. Other apps, I just stick on the home screen. I try and have the apps and folders I use most on my first home screen.

    I alphabetize mine. Much more convenient than folders if you ask me. I keep all the Apple apps on the home screen and the rest on the second page going forward.

    I put most of the stock apps (except that stupid Newstand app, grrr) in a folder labeled "Apple Crap" and throw it as far from the beginning as possible. The other apps are organized by when they were downloaded

    I don't use too many apps, I hate having too many apps especially ones that just end up being used for a moment then never again. I really like a minimalistic look. So with what little apps I have that could take up 1 and half pages, I like to keep my 6 most used apps on the dock, keep the camera, settings, and that annoying newsstand out, and then put the rest in 3 folders Productivity, Entertainment, and Others which mainly consists of a few games and a couple of randoms.

    I have only the iPod on the first page so that I am able to see my background picture. The second page is 9 apps that use several times a day: calendar, contacts, camera, calculator, notes, clock, a password app, and days until countdown app. On the third page, I have folders according to category: photo, social, news, exercise, shopping, video, video games, music, board games, travel, navigation, health, finance, and productivity. The fourth page is where the misfits go: stock, Newsstand, settings, iBooks, Game Center, and Passbook.

    I have my most commonly used apps on the first page - carefully arranged so that similar apps are bunched together in both portrait and landscape.

    My second page is full of various categorised folders for non-game apps

    My third page is full of different categorised game folders.

    My fourth page is untried apps - also in folders.
