Have you ever not been able to find an application on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad because you have so many folders? I know personally I was looking for Songza on one occasion and for the life of me couldn’t find it. I ended up just giving up and then the next day stumbled upon it without even meaning to. This might be an extreme example, but if you want to quickly find out which folder an iOS app is in you can do so quite easily.
A new handy feature in the iOS 6 firmware generations allows you to use the spotlight to find out what folder a specific application is currently residing in. To quickly find out what folder contains the app you are looking for, follow the handy animation or read the quick instructions below.
As you probably already guessed, finding out what folder an application resides in is as easy as typing the application’s name into Spotlight (swipe left to right on your home screen to access spotlight). When you do this, if the application is contained by a folder, it will show the folder name to the right of it. In the case of the Songza app, shown in the animation above, it was in the Entertainment folder.
