How to create icon groups on the iPad & iPhone.

One of the great new features of IOS 4.2+ is the ability given to create application groups. The following walk through presents an example of how to do this step-by-step.

First, begin by selecting applications that would be best grouped with others. Social networking, productivity applications, and games would probably be useful to group together for a majority of iPad & iPhone users.

Next, press and hold down an application icon until all the application icons “dance”. Slowly move an icon toward another that you wish to group together. Once the icon is placed on top of the other, the border of the underlying icon will change, indicating a group can be created.

Shortly thereafter, a screen will presented in which you can change the name of the group to match your favoured description. This is done by tapping the white text area, changing the name, then tapping the blue Done key on the keyboard. Finally, press the Home button to complete the group creation process.

Application or icon groups have a dark cloth appearance, and are easily distinguished by a silver metal border.

To remove an application from a group, open a group icon by tapping it as normal. Then press and hold an icon until the “dance” begins and drag the application from outside the dark cloth background onto the “see-through” desktop above.
