Apple owns the trademark, “there’s an app for that” and that is for a reason. The reason is simple, there seems to be an app for everything. Unluckily, there is no app that can help you organize all the apps you have downloaded and installed in your Apple device.

If you wish to take advantage of all the download-for-free promotion, you will need to organize the apps installed in your iPad way better than letting the apps go to back of the line. Fortunately, there are many ways to keep your favorite apps at your fingertips. Below are some tips to help you organize the apps installed on your iPad.

Use Folders

When the iPad was first introduced, it had no option to create folders, but this changed quickly as the number of apps in App Store grew. Creating a new folder in iPad is as simple as opening an app. In reality, it involves moving an app, but you are not dropping the app on the home screen of the iPad, instead on another app.

When you drag an app and hover on another app, an outline appears over the app and if you continue to hover, you will be zoomed into a folder view. Just by dropping the app into the folder area, you can make a new folder that contains the source app and the destination app.

Sort Apps Alphabetically

It is true that there is no way to keep all the apps in your iPad permanently sorted alphabetically, but with some workaround, you can sort the apps without the need to move each and every app. To do this, launch the Settings app and go to General tab to choose Reset. You can find it on the bottom of General Settings screen. Tap on Reset Home Screen Layout and then confirm your choice by choosing Reset. Doing this will sort all the apps in your iPad in alphabetical order. However, you should understand that the default apps are not sorted with this workaround.

Place Folders on Dock

Flipping the script is one of the collect ways to organize your iPad. The dock contains the most used apps and the home screen contains the folder and rest of the apps. You can flip this to use the home screen for most used apps and add everything else to the dock. This can be done by placing a folder on the dock.
