Folders are one of the big new features for iPad, added in the iOS 4.2 software update for iPad this week. They let you group your apps in folders and they are a tremendous help in organizing your apps and home screens on the iPad.
Folders are easy to work with and a pleasure to use. For those who have not yet tried them out, the video demo above offers a quick rundown on how to use folders on the iPad.
Folders are one of the big new features in iOS 4.2 for the iPad. I’m running the first IOS 4.2 beta on mine right now – and I’m happy to see that not only are folders working nicely (and letting me reduce my home screens from 8 to 4), but they also allow 20 apps per folder.
Much nicer than the measly 12 per folder that we’ve got on iOS 4 on the iPhone right now. I’m not sure if this is a change that will apply to both devices under 4.2 or just to the iPad because of its larger screen. In any case I’m glad to see the higher limit and would love to see Apple increase it even further.
