My colleague Steve Lomas has written a great post that describes clearly how to organize your multiple screens of scattered icons on your iOS device for easy retrieval. It's a great system if you can get yourself to think in terms of folders on those devices which started out with no such concept and then implemented the idea in a sort of obtuse way.
Great Approach to Organizing iPhone and iPad Screens
by Dan Shafer •
I decided to try his technique on my iPad. In less than 30 minutes I took six screens of icons down to two. It would have all fit on one, but I decided to leave my three-year-old granddaughter's page intact so she wouldn't get confused and then start rummaging around my other icons!
Good idea, Steve.
