Best way to organize apps?
I just got my sweet new iPhone in the mail, and want to correct a few mistakes I made with the old one. The main issue with mine is the way I organize my apps. I used "Categories", and, though efficient, it took so long to load. I even tried allowing it to run in the background, but it seemed like it always ended up loading each folder when I wanted it. Are there better ways to organize apps?

dock and catagories seem to run much smoother/ faster than they used to. i really liked dock, but if ur going to poof all icons make sure to get some blank/transparent icons to leave on screen or the phone will go into continues reboot.. i uselly just have a bunch of screens each screen is a diffrent catagorieHey!

I actually love categories; it just takes too long to load and the "backgrounding" setting rarely works

No problems using Categories here.

Well, what could I be doing wrong?

Use quickgold. I put 80% of my apps in categories to clean up the look of the home screen. When you want to use an app just search with quickgold and it starts up, no loading. Best setup i have tried.

I agree quickgold rules!

Quickgold slows my phone down for some reason. I just organize my pages and tap the page indicators to scroll through them.

I really like dock and my preference is to find a way to use it most effectively. Is there a way to tell dock not to open when you touch the screen on certain apps?

Is there a way to auto arrange your icons? I have 6 pages and sometimes they get messed up and have spaces on pages and dragging is annoying. Any way to organize them all alphabetically?
