Counsel from the Council (listener feedback segment)

  • I just started listening to GTD Jedi and I feel sure that you will know the answer to what I've been searching for and if not it probably hasn't been created yet. I have an iPad and an iPhone. I'd like my apps to be organized the same on both devices. For example, I have an entertainment folder for Youtube, Netflix, Pandora, etc. I'd like those two folders to sync and have the same apps on both devices. It's such a drag to have to manually organize them both. It would be so much more productive if they would sync so you just had to organize one device. I've searched a few times over the years to find something that would do this and either I just don't know how to search the right terminology to find what I need or it does not exist. I hope this question makes sense and I really hope what I am looking for is available. If it's not, it would make a great app if someone were so inclined to create it IMHO. Thank you in advance for answering my question. May the force be with you. Lauree
