Organizing My Apps

(cross post from

I have hundreds of apps for my iPod and iPad. I have so many uploaded on my iPad that during therapy sessions, I found I was wasting time scrolling through pages of apps. I also found that some of my clients thought it was visually stimulating to quickly scroll through the pages of apps. Talk about a session quickly spiraling down the wrong path.

I knew that the best solution to my disorganized iPad was to take some time to organize my apps into folders, however, I never seemed to have the time. Given the slower pace of summer (and given the fact that I currently no longer have a house to clean), I decided to take some time to organize my apps. I was surprised to find that my organization task took much less time than I anticipated. I also found that the most difficult part of my task was deciding how to group the apps. I began my organizing by dragging and dropping the apps on top of each other right on the iPad. The iPad did the work of creating the folders and even naming the folders. I then took some time to rename the folders. I am sure that over time I will move apps around, create new folders and maybe even rename some folders. For the moment, however, I am pleased with the way the apps are organized. Now that I have everything in nice, neat folders, I figured I would spend a few post sharing my folders and apps.
If you would like some more information on how to organize your apps into folders, here is an article that Sean Sweeney shared with me from

Before I share my organization system and my apps, I must insert a little disclaimer. Owning an app, does not equate recommending an app. There have definitely been times when I purchased an app, only to use it and decide I didn't like it. I also own apps that my children have downlaoded and I have never used, particularly apps that are in my games folders. That said, I view this list as nothing more than a simple list of apps that are on my iPad. It is not necessarily a list of apps I use, or apps I think others should use in therapy. Over time, I hope to be able to review many of these apps and post those reviews here on the site.
