First and foremost I hold my iPhone 6 Plus in my right hand. Therefore my thumb swipes in an arc from the right corner like a windscreen wiper. Therefore all high frequency apps need to be within or close to this swipe.
Apps used but not as often are placed in folders. Apps on the left column are only used when holding the iPhone with two hands.
So to reach the top half of the screen is a double tap on the home button to lower the screen (this is reachability in iOS 8) and once again the arc thumb swipe action is enabled.
But the layout design doesn’t finish with the home screen. Let’s open the media folder near the top right.
In each folder I place the apps I use the most on the right side of the folder as I’m holding phone with my right hand. This means it’s possible to use the 6 Plus one handed for many operations.
By using folders, it means all 161 apps and games are accessible on a single home screen.
So have you any tips?
