I can be an iPhone app hoarder.
I love trying out all the latests and greatests when they come out. But they tend to pile up, and then it takes me longer than it should to weed through all my apps to find one I’m looking for.
Of course, I have my favorites that I use all the time. But I also have many that I never actually use.
So it was definitely time to do some Spring Cleaning.
I got rid of all the apps I never use.
I had quite a few apps I’d downloaded with good intentions, but never really found a practical use for. And some that I once used fairly often, but just don’t have a need for anymore.
It was time to clean house and get rid of them.
No sense taking up storage space on my phone for an app I will maybe use someday. Should I ever actually need it at some point, I can always download it again.
I prioritized the apps I do use.
I went really simple with this.
- My first page has all the apps I use most frequently. Most of them I utilize every single day.
- My second page is for apps I use often, but not everyday. I also keep some new ones here that I want to try out as I have time.
- My third page is kind of like my junk drawer. It holds the apps that I rarely need, but when I do, I’m thankful I know where they are.
I grouped apps into folders… But not all of them.
I combined similar apps into folders, and labeled them accordingly. It makes it much easier to navigate through that way.
On my first page, I kept a few individual apps on their own, outside of a folder. I want to reduce steps to access the apps I use the most.
For me, it is important to have my phone, texts, email, Twitter, calendar, and Evernote be just a simple click away.
