    Organising application icons on screen

    I know it must be simple as my 3 year old has somehow managed to do this by accident but I want to put my applications, such as all the kids games I've downloaded into a separate file icon. Looked everywhere for how to do but not been able to find yet, anyone help please, many thanks, patsy

    Press and hold an icon (shortcut) until it starts wobbling then drag it over the top of another icon, this will make it create a folder which you can rename and then just drag all the icons into the folder

    You can place as many as 12 apps in a single folder.

    You'd be surprised at some of the things that can happen when small children interact with iPads. Check out threads along the lines of "My kid set (and forgot) a new password. What can I do?" or "My screen is shattered after the kid sat on it. Will Apple replace it? (The iPad, not the kid.)"

    Alright, I'm joking, but it's amazing to watch the way quite young children find iOS so intuitive. While adults are scratching their heads wondering how to achieve something, kids are busy doing it.
