How to Put a Folder Within a Folder in iOS 7

How to Put a Folder Within a Folder in iOS 7

If you’ve had your iPhone for more than a few days, your home screen is likely a mess of app icons. Sure you have folders you can create to house apps of a similar nature, but a single layered folder can only go so far. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could nest folders in iOS 7 like you can on a computer. For example: inside of a Media folder you could make a folder for video apps and another for music apps. That one media folder could house tons of apps while still remained easy to navigate. Unfortunately, Apple didn’t see fit to add this feature to their newest mobile OS. Fortunately, YouTuber OfficialSoftModder found a bug that lets you do it anyway.

Take a look at the video below for a rundown of how to exploit the bug. Be warned, it isn’t as simple as dragging one folder over another; you’ll need precise timing to get it to work. Create two folders on one home screen and add any apps you want into the folder you’ll be nesting. Once, done, take a look at 1:10 in the video below for the most difficult part of the trick. You’ll need to tap and hold the folder you’ll be nesting then almost immediately double-tap the Home button to enter multi-task mode. If you’ve done well, all you’ll then need to do is tap the home screen preview your folders are on, select the folder you want to nest the other folder inside of and then tap “Home.”

Though it’s a finicky trick, it isn’t all that hard once you figure it out. If you think it’s as useful as we do, make sure to share it with your friends.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
