Here’s my iPhone home screen. As you can see it’s prioritized by my most used apps along with some other vital but less used ones. My most used apps (1+ opens/day) are Camera+, Instagram, Mobile RSS, Day One, Drafts, Tumblr, Tweetbot, Safari, and Mail. I’m not counting Phone. The rest are opened less frequently but must haves. For example, Messages, Calendar, Weather, and Maps are critical when you need them. Facebook is on the home screen because it’s the social hub. While I don’t venture in often I do like to check up now and again to see what’s going on with my mutual friends. The background for my screen is the basic default splash that comes with the iPhone. I like this for its simplicity and don’t feel the need to change it to a personal photo for the same reason I keep my desktop computer background clean. This is of course, the home screen of my personal phone. My business phone is a bit different. For one, Camera+ is missing, mainly because I never take photos with my work phone which is a iPhone 4. My personal is an iPhone 4S. Home screen apps are about access, speed, and engagement. If an app is not on the home screen, it’s a nice-to-have.
