New to the iOS 4 operating system is the ability to organize your apps into folders. This is a great feature for anyone who likes to download and install tons of apps, which we will learn how to do in a later chapter. Instead of cluttering screen after screen with dozens of apps, you can group related apps together into folders. To do so, just press and hold your finger down on any app until they start wiggling. In this mode, you can drag apps around to arrange them onscreen, but to create a folder, just drag one app on top of another. That instantly creates a folder, and your iPhone or iPod touch even tries to give the folder a logical name.
If that name works for you, just tap anywhere else outside the folder to accept it, or type the name and type one of your own. You can then drag up to ten more apps into the folder, for a total of 12 apps per folder. Click the Home button when you are done adding items to your folder. From this point, you can then access the apps in the folder by tapping the folder and then tapping app you want to run. If you want to remove an app from a folder at anytime, just touch and hold on the folder until the icons start wiggling again. Then tap the folder to open it and drag out the app.
This is also the point where you can rename the folder, if you like, but most likely you will find the folder feature extremely useful and beneficial, especially as you start to add more and more apps to your device. So that's how to create and use folders on the iPhone and iPod touch.
