The release of iOS 4.0 software introduced the option to create folders for categories of applications on Apple mobile devices. Instead of having nine screens of apps on my iPhone, I’m now able to have two screens primarily of app folders. This is my current home screen:
Since the number of apps in a folder is limited, as I add more apps I’ve been forced to organize them into new categories. My favorite iOS apps are definitely those which support media creation and sharing. My current categories for these apps are:
Facebook and Loopt could fit in the Upload category too, since they support photo uploads. Ustream Broadcaster, 12Up, Audioboo, iPadio, and Cinch technically support uploads too. These are the best categories I could devise at this point for my media creation and sharing apps, however.
If you have a smartphone and are using folders for app organization, how are you categorizing apps for media production and sharing?
