One thing that bothers me about organizing things on my iPhone is the folder limitations. For instance, I probably have about 30+ games on my phone…and stuffing them into folders named Games and Games and Games is 1) not intuitive 2) not intuitive.
Some folks don’t even like organizing their phone because it’s hard for them to recall which “box” the app they’re trying to find lives in. I’m one of them, but I’ve forced myself to use an incredible amount of brain power to remember where Facebook and Instagram are.
But…back go to my rant at hand.
Why can’t we just have folders that allow for any number of apps and are all accessible via swipe? I mean, the parent level already does that so doesn’t it just make sense? We could even keep the max for each page at 12 apps, I don’t mind, just let me swipe. Yea, I know, you can use “Search iPhone” or argue that “it takes more clicks than if you went to the correct folder.” But guess what…1) search is often slow and 2) it may take less clicks if I find the right folder, but I’ll probably brain fart before getting to that folder, by trying to remember what I named the folder. Sound confusing? Good, because it is.
I don’t want to categorize my games by “Games RPG”, “Games Puzzles”, “Games Action”, etc. That requires me to think, and that’s not good. Let me just drop it into Games and swipe through it myself.
Thanks for listening. :)
