    I've downloaded some games off the iPad store and noticed that it sets up an icon for each game. I would like to create an icon that named "games" and put all the games under that icon. Is that even possible on an iPad?

    Tap and hold any icon until they all start to jiggle. Drag of your game icons on top of another, and they will form a folder named Games (probably, but you can rename it if not). Continue to drag the icons you want into the folder that was created. When done press the home key to leave edit mode. Be careful not to tap the x's at the top left of the icons, or you will delete the apps. Don't worry, it's not easy to do by accident.

    You must be running iOS 4.0 or later to create folders.

    twerppoet,

    what happens if you were to try and group "unrelated" icons together? for instance if i drug the app store icon on top of a game icon. In my initial case, its smart enough to figure out it games, but what about unrelated icons (i.e one named "miscallaneous)?


    thanx again

    You can open the folder, tap in the white bar containing the folder name and change it to anything you want.

    I have no idea what it would name the folder, but it doesn't really matter. As Gabriel pointed out you can change the name to anything you want.

    If for some reason you didn't rename it when you created the folder then you can rename it later. Just tap on the folder to open it, then tap and hold on any icon until they jiggle. At that point the folder's name will become editable. Change it to what you want then tap the Home button to end the editing session. This is also your chance to change how the icons are arranged in the folder if you want.

    That's a good point about jiggling, I forgot that you had to do that part to edit the name, it's been so long since I edited a folder name!

    Just did it minutes before replying to the post. The screen I reserve for productivity apps was getting crowded, so I put all the iWorks and related apps in a new folder. Got a whole row back.
