    hi, i got myself infinidock and folder enhancer, i wanted to re organize all my icons in folders by subject so its easier to get to them., i also installed SBSettings and want to know whats the dock useful for, for example, in the event your locked out of your device one can reboot in safe mode etc using SBSettings.

    anyway; while i was organizing i hit a wall, 3 devices in the house and i cant decide how to organize everything since the iphone 4S looks cooler with 5 folders in the dock


    On my main page i just dropped the stuff i use daily, calendar, notes, memos, tomtom, weather, messages, photos, camera app etc

    then in my DOC i created folders so far like
    A/V (camera apps like photography or videoagraphy)
    ED (Languages, Cooking/recopies, etc)
    LifeStyles (horoscope, funny pranks, home deco, gardening, going out, buying selling, travel/navigation)
    Music (itunes, garageband, rec pro apps, guitar, drums etc)
    Office, (calendar, notebook apps, utilities, apps to print etc)


    so i was wondering how others organized their folders and docs, please do post your thoughts cause im stuck between adding a utility and navigation folder in the doc as to some sort of gestures to bring up the TomTom for example or memos

    Here is a little screenshot which shows how I have my home page (5x5 Iconoclasm configuration). Everything is accessible from this one page except games, which are all on my 2nd page! :D

    It's not a tweak. You don't even need to be jailbroken. It's been a standard feature of IOS5 since it was released. Just add the "Emoji" keyboard in Settings > General > Keyboards and use the characters from the Emoji keyboard when giving the folder a name... to bring up the keyboard, just press the "globe" key which will appear on your standard keyboard once you add the new one...

    Settings > General > Keyboard > International Keyboards > Add New Keyboard

    Choose Emoji

    How can it be iPhone only? This is an iPad forum and I showed you an iPad screenshot ! :)

    They forgot to mention that you have to install emoji to have it show up in settings. Just search for the emoji you want in the app store then enable it in settings.

    No. Since iOS 5 (as f4780y pointed out), emoji comes default on the iPad. You just have to go to Settings and activate it as described a few posts up. You do NOT have to get a separate app from the App Store.

    Again, however, it's default on iOS 5. I have no emoji app installed on my iPad3, yet I have them enabled. See? -

    5 of them are standard and you will have them, and 5 are IOS6 exclusive Emoji, but can be enabled in IOS5 with the paid JB tweak EmojiPro.

    Anyway, let's get back to the topic, shall we? :3

    This is what my Springboard looks like.

    The folders up there are Creative (art, books and camera apps), Education (japanese and HTML/CSS/JavaScript apps), Entrainment (various game apps), Reference (apps I use for reference, such as Wikipanion) and Miscellaneous, which has all the apps that are either duplicates or things I wouldn't use very much or at all (like CrashReporter and Notes).

    I have decided to shamelessly copy you, f4680y, and only have one page for my apps. I used to have them spread out over all 11 pages (or more, thanks to the Overboard tweak). But, now I'm liking them all on one page. Seems neater...

    Only "difference" is that I am a landscape person (use the SmartCover as a typing stand) and I used Springtomize2 for my customized number of icon rows (5 x 5) and the customized dock number.

    Oh, and I love the frames as provided by the iPad3 theme PlatinumRed (free!):

    Although I'm probably going to change those red folder backgrounds to gray or transparent. The red is too much of one color (I like to see the pictures, not folder backgrounds)...

    Marilyn, you can use the Folder Icons tweak to get rid of the folder background. It gets rid of the borders too, though. You can see Folder Icons in action on my Springboard I posted earlier.

    Of course, I'm pretty sure you knew that already. X3

    Well, I like the framing around the folders, just not necessarily the red color. I'm probably just going to play with colors (or not) in PhotoShop or Paint.net ...
