1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

Is it possible 2 make a folder 2 put all your screen shortcuts in

    Sure is!

    Press and hold any app until it starts to "wiggle" (Apple's term). Then, while its wiggling, and with your finger still touching it, drag it on top of another icon. They will merge together and a folder will be created. It's hard to describe the effect, but here's a picture of what it will look like:

    The iPad will automatically title the folder. However, you can rename the folder however you wish by pressing your finger in that white field (where the word Photography is in this picture).

    As long as the apps are wiggling, you can drag them in and out of any folder - or create as many folders as you wish. You may also notice that the folders themselves wiggle, so you can move them around also (but no, you can't put a folder within a folder).

    Once you are done making folders or moving around apps, then press the Home button once to stop the wiggling. And, you're done.

    Hope that helps. Holler back if you need more...

    Depending on how many apps you have, you may need more than one folder. I believe you can only put up to twenty apps in a folder.

    The only thing I don't like is that you cannot start a folder with just one app. You need two to start! Not a big deal, but would be nice.

    Yeah, you need two to start, but once the folder is made - you can drag one back out. Then, you'll have a folder with just one app in it.
