The Way I Organize My iPad Apps
There’s three ways that I think about the apps on my iPad:
- Folder 1: Apple Apps
- Dock: Favorite Apps
- Folder 2: Everything Else
Folder 1: Apple Apps
These are the ones that are built into the iPad, like Photos, and Mail, and Settings. These live in a folder to the left of the dock.
Dock: Favorite Apps
These are the apps that are critical to my workflow, and I spend the most amount of time in. Like Ulysses, Things, Fantastical, and Tweetbot. I need them to be front and center for me to use right away.
Folder 2: Everything Else
These apps are still very important to me, but not as important as my dock apps. Netflix, 1Password, and YouTube are some of the apps that I often open the folder to get to.
Also: I turn off the suggested and recent apps feature for the dock, to keep random or recent apps from popping up on the side of my second folder.
Also: I’m always evaluating the apps I have downloaded. If I don’t need the app anymore, I get rid of it. All the apps I no longer need are always in the second folder, and usually in the back of the folder, because I move the ones I often use to the front.
Also: I use a similar thought process for the iPhone , with the two folder structure.
