How do I put apps in folders on my iPhone 4?

I'd like to group similar things, like entertainment, games, etc, as they're spread our over quite a few pages and I have to scroll

Hi shelfelf :)

Touch and hold any icon on your iPhone 4, until all the icons wobble. If there are 2 apps you want to put in the same folder, simply drag one to the top of the other, and let go. It creates a folder, which you can then re-name if you wish. You can add other apps into the same folder, in the same fashion.

To get apps out of the folder, touch and hold the folder until it wobbles, tap it again, select the app you want to move, and drag it out of the folder.

You can only place 12 apps in one folder, so plan ahead before you get frustrated. But you can name the folders as you please (although the iOS assigns a default name automatically - you can change that name)

I didn't realise they had a limit of 12... thanks Jan :)
