How do you create folders on the iPad?

Mac OS X (10.3.x)

    What kind of folders? In email? For applications? Or do you mean a finder/explorer style hierarchy of file management?

    Tap on an app icon until it begins to wiggle. Hold down on that icon and drag it on top of another icon and you will create a folder. You have to be running iOS 4.1 to create folders.


    Just curious but your profile shows OS X 10.3. Do you have an iPad? That system does not meet the minimum.

    Ok, iwas able to create folders and group like apps together. I could only do this I'd the apps were on the same screen. How do I move apps from one screen to another. For instance, all of the original apps that came on my device are located on one screen, the apps that I installed were on two other screens. I have been unsuccessful in attempting to move them from one screen to another.

    When you move them hold them so that they overhang the side of the screen, and after a second or two the display should switch to the previous/next screen. You can also do it via the device's apps tab when connected to your computer's iTunes
