Do you feel that your phone is messy? Do you have to spend a lot of time to locate your favorite app? Don’t worry because today we are going to share with you some of the best methods and ways that you can use to organize those apps  in your smartphones. 

Action Categories

Organising apps on the basis of action categories is one of the best ways to organise your apps. All you have to do is simply create folders and name them according to the word or phrase which best define the purpose of the app. 

Color Coding

Do  you like colours? If the answer is yes then you must try color coding technique for organising your smartphone apps. Each app has its own unique colour and visuals. These elements allow us to easily identify the apps we are looking for. Why does this work? It is simple because  the mind likes colours more than dull and boring name labels.

Frequency Used

We all have those apps in our smartphones that we rarely use and then we have the apps which we use almost everyday. By organising our apps on the basis of frequency we can minimize the time spent on searching your favorite app.

Themed rows

If you don’t like your smartphones filled with folders then you can use themed rows technique for organising your app. All you have to do is assign a theme to each row of apps. For example- We can group all social media apps together. So when you want to use any social media all you have to do is navigate to the social media themed row.

Widgets

Widgets on smartphones are a great tool that allows you to access information  quickly. By adding a widget on your home screen you can easily organise all the information you want from the apps without  additional clicks or by opening the app.

Emoji folders

We all love using emojis. There are hundreds of emoji in our smartphones . So if you love emojis you can use emoji folders methods for organising your apps. In this method you create folders with emojis as your labels instead of text and place all the apps based upon the emoji . For example: Use the headphone emoji for your music apps like, google music,spotify etc.

Alphabetical order

Another great way  to organise your apps is organising them on the basis of alphabetical order instead of manually alphabetizing your apps. To organise your apps on the basis of alphabetical order follow these steps:

  • From the home screen tap on the menu button.
  • In the menu select sort option.
