    I have an iPad 4 with the last IOS6 version.

    The one biggie I had when IOS 7 came out was folders and wonder now with 7.0.3 if there has been a fix.

    With IOS 6 i could have 20 apps and bookmarks (from Safari and sent to the home screen) then dropped into a
    Folder (also on the home screen) but then with IOS 7.0.0 stuck with 9 apps & bookmarks to one page. Having all 20 available to select from on a single page was great. But now searching for an App through the many pages tedious.

    So, now with 7.0.3 out - is folder organization better than 7.0.0 ?

    Sorry, but there is no change in folder management. While you still can put in a virtually unlimited amount of apps in a folder, you can still only see nine per page.

    Is there any way of making the folders/icons smaller ? Theyre incredibly big and i dont see the need.

    There is no way to do this on a stock iPad. The folders are set by apple's coding and cannot be changed.

    However, if you were to jail break your iPad, there is a new tweak called "BetterFolders" that allows you to have a 4 x 4 layout in order to display up to 16 icons per folder page (versus 9 on a 3 x 3 layout on a stock iPad).

    Again, this is only for a jail broken iPad. On as stock iPad, no change is possible. Sorry.
