FOLDER AND WISER?

I've never been a big fan of folders. As the above screenshot shows, I tend to like instant access to my apps. Inspired by this post by Gina Trapani, however, I've decided to try using them for a while. The folders in Android 4.0 do look nice - something that has always put me off using them before.
Here are my screens now, with everything sorted into categories. Using verbs to label the folders makes a lot of sense to me, and I'm interested to see if it'll have a big impact on how I use my phone. Using two taps to access Twitter may not sound a lot, but I guess time will tell if it eventually annoys me.
I have noticed one thing; I've put more apps on the home screens than before - apps that would have sat neglected in the app drawer. Maybe it'll prompt me to use them more? It also means I can resize widgets to make them more practical.
How about you? Do you use folders at all?
