Can We Have Bigger Folders on iPad Please?

Folders on iPhone iOS 4

Random Monday morning thought here.  I was re-arranging a few apps / home screens on my iPad a little while ago, and it occurred to me that I really miss the ability to consolidate screens through the use of folders – which of course I can do on my iPhone 4 because it runs iOS 4.

iOS 4 is not due to hit the iPad until ‘this Fall’ and I am already feeling impatient to have it.  While thinking about folders though, I did think that I’d like to see bigger folders on the iPad, that can hold more than the measly 12 apps allowed on the iPhone. 

Bigger device, bigger app icons, bigger screen – so bigger folders should work well I reckon.  Allowing us something like 24 apps per folder would work much better I think – as most of us have at least a couple of folder categories (Games, News, Books are just 3 quick examples for me) that just don’t fit within a single folder if 12 is the limit.

What do you all think?  Would you be in favor of bigger folders if Steve asked us all to phone in our votes on this?  What other modifications would you like to see in iOS 4 when it comes to the iPad?

  1. As an avid user of both the pad and 3gs w/ iOS4 i would like the max be open for apps and let us worry about space

  2. I want an App that allows me to create an icon or choose one that best represents folders rather than my poor old eyes trying to read the small type

  3. For heaven sake, let's the user decides how many app per folder.

    For power users who have many apps, eg. 100 games, having 5 games folders (with 20 games each) DOES NOT make sense, as compared to 1 game folder. If Apple is concern that for non-power users, they prefer to keep things simple, fine. Make available in the settings such that power users can tweak the no. of apps per folder.

  4. How we can make a folder in I phone with 12apps that has to increase to at least 20apps in o folder and same folder facility has to be in I pad even can be more due to big screen of iPad .

    Plz Steve need urgent folder facility in iPad because we are unable to download further apps ?

  5. It won't let me join apps to make folder.pls help ,I can't help but be pissed off cause I have I phone and am used to it ?????
