    Screen shots on my iPhone. The first page is my most commonly used apps. The second is news apps and other information and productivity apps. The last page is games.

    My Mac is a little different. On the dock I have my most used apps and folders. Then in Finder I have all of my files. In particular, the Documents folder is organized into more folders for different things. The main one is a file for school that contains more folders for each class with the corresponding files. Some might say that's redundant, and I don't need to use so many folders, but it keeps things organized. I don't like to go searching for things when I often use similar names like "Paper 1". If it's in the English folder, I know it's an English paper. If it's in the history folder, I know it's a history paper. It makes sense to me.

    I just have two screens and a couple of folders. I don't like having too many applications installed. Too messy. 99% I am on the first page of my home screen.

    What Max(IT) said: folders, folders, folders. iOS and Mac.

    As for iOS devices, home screens have the most used apps, the REALLY most used reside on their own on the screen, others in folders. Screen not completely filled (eg. so can drag an app that will be heavily used for a short time span onto home screen). Phone, Messages, Mail, Safari on launch bar.

    Then comes more prioritizing and foldering. Secondary apps on next screen, games on third, fourth screen some apps that MIGHT be useful once or twice a year but should probably be deleted since probably been a LOOOONG time since used, "app ghetto" on fifth screen.
