Just curious what's living on everyone's home screen and being used daily as I'm re-evaluating my current setup for notes, tasks, mail, etc.
I recently moved all my app to be sorted by colour. Nerdy I know but there was a reason.
I've been toying with the idea for a while but decided to try it to "ungroup" social media apps with an aim of becoming less distracted... it means I now make swipes to get to things.
What I've found is, social media usage is down, but I can find an app that I want quicker than before. I think because I can imagine the icon/icon colour and I know roughly where it will be now (rather than buried in a folder). I still use pull down to search, but I'm rocking iPhone 7 and that search is slow AF these days
Been a positive experience, I'd recommend trying it.
(Oh I keep my homepage the same, IMPORTANT everyday apps)
I like the idea of organised by colour. I keep all my apps in folders, apart from the ones I use everyday which are on the home screen. when I need an app, I use the pull down search too (iPhone XS) and its faster than me trying to find an app by looking through folders.
Not nerdy at all.. I am right handed and try to group apps in clusters with majority of apps in specific folder's. Instagram is buried and chat/compose are almost out of reach — ha! I use Search for anything non-essential
OMG you've gone next level and have 1 folder per colour... NICE!
I aim to touch and look at the thing as little as possible.
There is nothing good there.
Messaging: WhatsApp & iMessage & Slack
Social Networking: Instagram & TikTok (only for business purposes)
Calendar: Google Calendar & Fantastical
Music: Spotify & YouTube Music & SONOS & Hypem
Camera / SMS / Spotify at the bottom my go to apps!
I just use the included apps: Notes, Mail, Camera.
Notes syncs to my Mac, and supports drawings.
Camera app can create PDFs
Oh, forgot I made two changes:
Switched to Google Calendar, more functionality than the stock one.
Switched to WeatherBug.
I also moved some apps to the next screen to clean the bottom area.
If you haven't already, give Carrot Weather a try - best one out there in terms of functionality and data.
thanks, will give it a second try, I only remember its swearing!
Ha! It still does but there's a personality setting to tone that down or disable it altogether.
