My husband's iPhone has the multi app icon and wanted to get the same on my new iPad.

Is it possible to get it on the iPad?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Could you clarify what you mean by "multi app icon"? Are you referring to iOS Folders? – Kyle Cronin Jan 13 '11 at 5:56

I think you are talking about iOS folder. If so, touch and hold one icon till icons begin dithering. Then drag and drop one icon on an other icon which of two you want to folder together. Your ipad will suggest you a folder name. You may change or assume that. Then push the home button.

Also, the iPad must be updated to iOS 4.2 to have this functionality – Kyle Cronin Jan 13 '11 at 7:26
