    I'm mostly just having 2 or 3 folders just so I can narrow things down on one home screen. I'm sick of everything being cluttered and all the different pages. I'm looking for advice on naming things. I will most likely call my games folder "Arcade" or something like that and anything else "Interests". Opinions?

    Probably whatever the iPhone suggests would work fine for me.

    I only have 3 pages of apps to begin with so I'm not even sure I'll be using them. I'm not too fond of how they look.

    I'm sure I will be using them. I like the simplicity. Like I will probably have an unused default Apple icon folder too. Who the hell uses Stocks?

    Home page will have no folders, just my most used apps and likely will be a full page

    Page two MIGHT be a basic Home Page 2

    Folders on page three (or page two if no Home Page 2) will be:
    Sports
    Camera (and camera apps)
    Games 1 (sports)
    Games 2 (all else)
    News
    Biz (Amazon, Best Buy, NetFlix, AT&T, etc)
    Reference
    Tools/Utilities
    Music/TV/Show Biz

    Good Luck


    The folders only allow you to have 12 apps a folder so if you've got more than a few pages already, good luck getting down to just one page.

    Media
    Office
    Online
    Study
    Utilities (Could be named System instead)

    By fruits obviously.

    Apple will have all the apple apps, Kiwi will have all the game apps, Orange will have all the sports apps, Pineapple will have all the weather apps, Mango will have all the business apps, and cherry will have all the porn apps.

    I only use a few apps on regular basis and most of the games I get don't keep my interest so I only have 5 or 6 games loaded at a time.

    If I decide not to jailbreak (which is my plan this time - I did on 3G for video recording, background, HIDING Apple`s apps) I will have a folder named S H I T and put there Stocks and Weather, which I don`t like at all. Apple should make it possible to delete or hide them. Why not delete them and have them available in App Store for download if you want them back?

    I will probably use the same names I use in Categories: Tools, A/V, Games, Utilities.

    Me too, but I might use a few more, since I won't have some of the issues with Categories and being jailbroke. Currently mine are Tools, JB apps, JB apps 2, Games, Games Junk, and Junk. The junk is the pack rat in me.

    LOL. Just named them based on the apps inside.

    Same with me. While it is a good feature, I really don't think I have enough apps to use folders.

    I do.;)
