After a while of use, the iPhone quickly collapsed under app icons. We find ourselves juggling among the various screens filled to the brim. But where is this game, bought once on sale, and which didn’t look bad, hidden? So, whether you are a storage freak, messy or lazy, everyone has a way to organize their smartphone. Let’s take a look at some of them, which might inspire you.
- Without thinking too much, you can store your applications in a rather conventional way. by type, with, ideally, the creation of folders which will group together different applications of the same genre (all the games together, for example, or all the social applications, etc.). Finally, we follow the categories of the App Store
- Otherwise, for the most rigorous, storage in alphabetical order can be considered and always remains effective. Despite everything, it seems difficult to apply for a very high number of applications. In addition, the app library introduced with iOS 14 automatically classifies all apps in alphabetical order, as described here in our article dedicated to this App Library.
- Organize not by letter, but by frequency of use, here is an already more relevant storage idea. We leave the applications most often open on the main screen and its close neighbors to the right and left, and the poor, almost useless applications are found in the back room, that is to say on the screens at the ends , or in the apps library
- More suited to a large number of applications, storage by place of use may also work well. We keep, for example, a screen or a folder filled with applications for leisure (games, films, series, music), another for work (productivity tools, writing, specifically related to your activity), or even one for the car (GPS, radio, radars)
- Similarly, tidying up can no longer be done by location, but by time or day, with a screen or an application folder for weekend applications (sports, recipes, music and movies for example), one for work time, and then one for evening time before bed for example ( alarm clock, reading, podcast or radio apps, etc.)
- We can also consider organizations less academic. Non-tidying up can work for some with habit. Especially since the library of apps can be used to find applications automatically arranged by smart folders. In the case of this default organization, Spotlight can also be used to quickly find and launch an application quickly.
- The organization by color can also appeal to the most visual of us. Applications are sorted by their icon color. The visual effect is obviously there, but what about efficiency for large volumes of apps?
Finally, without having to limit yourself to a single storage method, the idea is to build the organization that suits us best, whether it is one or the other method, or a mixture of several. But let’s not forget that you consult your smartphone on average 150 times a day…, so it is worth taking a few minutes to look at your organization.
And you, how do you organize your apps?
