We get a lot of people asking us how to arrange apps into folders. The default layout of the iPhone and iPod Touch can get quite messy quick. Arranging everything into alphabetical order is one way but sometimes you just don’t remember what certain apps were named. Luckily this tutorial will show you how to arrange your iPhone or iPod Touch apps into folders.

In the categories app, you can see your existing folders or make more. To make more folders, simply tap add and designate the name as well as the icon. You can also go into your folders from here and that is how you will organize the apps on your iPhone or iPod Touch into these folders. Once you are done just exit to the springboard. It may take a few seconds for the iPhone or iPod Touch to respring but once it is over, you will have a clutter free springboard with your apps arranged into folders.
