Organizing apps by verbs instead of categories

Coming from Android I'm still getting used to the limitations of the iPhone home screen. I miss widgets and the apps drawer. Took me some time, but I finally have my apps organized by what they help me do, versus iOS's suggested folder names like "reference" and "productivity."

    My Newsstand is empty too, and I pushed it far away to a back screen

    Nice! I really like this way of organizing them.

    That's clever. I like what you did about having all the apps in just one screen. Flicking almost compulsively to find an app gets old really quick.

    Hey Gina, does you Todo app sync with services like Toodledo?.
  • davidsanders 3y

    Good idea! :-)
  • Gina Trapani 3y

    @Thirsty Dragon Not Toodledo, just Dropbox.

    I like that, makes sense...

    I think on a sprint iPhone you can have native google voice. Boy that would be cool!
  • Marco Gardinazzi 3y

    Lol. You can easily create folders using Android 4.0 and they look as pretty as in iOS. Actually I prefer Android's User Interface!
    Maybe you just didn't know about that :)

    what happened to your Android?

    Smart. Adopting.

    Obviously your choices work for you, but I would substitute Look Up with Search (or Research), and Set Up with Configure.

    Excellent! Definitely going to give this a try. Any chance you be willing to share a list of some of your apps? I'm particularly interested in those in Jot, Learn, and Read. And Navigate. And Set Up. :)

    Hi Gina, I second cabosdaddy's request for a list of some of your more used apps also I noticed you haven't got Dropbox in any of your folders but it's required for Todo.txt to work is it just a case of you don't access it on your phone even though it's installed? Just wondering.
  • gariig 3y

    It's in the Lookup folder bottom left hand side.

    Hey Gina, can you tell me where you got that wallpaper for the iphone ? it really rocks !
  • hurleystylee 2y

    This is very anal... and I love it! And you take it to another level by alphabetizing the folders too. Nice!

    This really is a great way to organize, thanks!
