If you were going to do a big project at home, the first thing you would do is go in to your office or workspace and organize your desk. As you collect apps and you start adding more projects and doing more things with the iPad, it's important to start creating folders. And to learn how to move and delete them, and put them where you want them. If you hold on an icon for a few seconds, It will start to shake. You can drag it to any location you want. And if you want to delete that app, you would simply tap the X. Now, deleting the app will not delete it from your iTunes account. It just means it's simply no longer on your iPad. To create folders, you select one of the app and you drag it on top of another app that's like it.
For instance, Good Reader on top of Playbooks, and up will pop this chance to rename it. Now, Apple will put in a name for you. And it's by the way they categorize apps when people submit apps into the Apps Store. To rename this simply tap on the word productivity, delete the letters in productivity and then type readers. You could either click on your home button or tap on the background. As you can see there's still shaking which means they're still hot and moveable and we can drag a few more of the readers into our reader folder by simply dragging them over the folder now.
To stop the shaking, click on the home button and now you've created your first folder with all the readers that you use every day. To get any of these out of the folder, you would simply do this process in reverse, hold until it shakes, and then drag it out to the background. To stop the shaking, click the home button. All iPads ship with four apps in the bar at the bottom, but there's space for two more. I use Evernote everyday in my class. So if I want to put it down in the bar I use the same technique, hold until it starts to shake then drag it down to the bar.
And when I see the other apps move over I know it's in the right location and click once on my home button. I'm all set to go and I'm ready to start my new projects. It's easy to get so many apps on your iPad and not be aware of how much the storage is affecting your ability to do things, or you've downloaded lots of music or lots of videos, the two big hogs of usage. So go to your settings icon, tap it, in general tap on the word usage. The iPad will create a list of all the apps that you've downloaded. They will be ordered from the largest to the smallest. And also, you'll be able to see how much available storage space is left. To get back to your home screen, just simply tap once on the home button. So now you're all organized.
Everything in folders. Everything where you need it in the dock and you're ready to start your project.
