The App Cleanse
M.G. Siegler

I don’t even know how many apps I have on my phone anymore. I stopped caring when I realized that the only thing making me care was seeing the grid of squares containing all of them. So I dumped every app (except the camera, iMessage, and phone icons on the bottom) into one tiny square of a folder, moved it off my Home screen (which is now filled with a picture of my daughter), and just use Spotlight and Notification Center to invoke functions as I need them, rather than encountering a pointless and visually stressful bin of pseudo-physical tokens every time I wake up my phone.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
