Folders are a welcomed addition to the iPhone

It took forever to get here – nearly as long as multitasking — but soon you’ll be able to neatly organize all your apps into folders right on the iPhone. There’s no need to launch iTunes, either. Just drag and drop apps on top of each other to automatically consolidate them into one folder.

This marks a shift for Apple. Previously app management had to be done via iTunes. But folders can be generated on the fly and even renamed if the auto-name does suit your fancy.

Just think, soon, you’ll be able to keep all your kids apps separate from your work apps. Games can be kept away from productivity apps. It’s a wonder that it took so long for Apple to announce this feature. It might be the second most important new iPhone feature announced today, with multitasking being the first.
