Shifting Icons


On the first episode of Connected the hosts spend some time talking about their iPhone layouts. This led me to start thinking about how I had my iPhone organized.

I really like a lot of what CGP Grey brought up with how he had his iPhone organized and decided to use that as a jumping off point.


Here’s what I came up with:

First, credit to _David Smith for his invisible icon, which makes up the top row.

Overall, I have to say that I really like only having a single page of icons.

The grid of my most used apps, with a row of folders holding all of the non-essential apps works well for me, and I like the balance of the “blank” row above and below.

In the home row, I still need to build out Launch Center Pro to make accessing apps in folders faster.
