A few stragglers and a real heck of a finale

In a nutshell, here's what we all learned yesterday: All iPhones come out of the box exactly the same, and then some people really screw them up. Am I right?


But looking at the way people organize -- or DON'T organize -- their iPhones is truly a study in human nature. There were a few people who didn't get the memo the other day and wanted to be a part of it, so I offered them a second chance to send in screenshots so that I could throw stones at them.

Jamie didn't get it. I tried to explain it.

Okay, I'm going to be brief today, but I definitely wanted to share this second group with you guys. If I had to see them, YOU have to see them, Internet.

One of my Dutch readers sent a screenshot! And look! They're just like us over there in the Netherlands (which I was totally going to call Holland, but then I saw "T-Mobile NL" at the top of her phone, so I went with Netherlands). They play Candy Crush, they Tweet, they Instagram (their lunches, presumably), and they don't read their email!

This one came from a co-worker who reads his email but doesn't take phone calls. I am dying -- DYING -- to know about this "I Love Her" app that's in one of his sacred perma-spots. I've never heard of it and it's 12:30 a.m. so I'm not about to look it up at this very moment, but you can bet your bottom dollar I'm hoping someone tells me in the Comments. Thanks in advance, Internet.

This one came from a Twitter follower who has me totally curious if she downloaded customized folder options to get that cloudy, transparent look or if they look that way because of her background photo. I also can't see the little dots at the bottom of the screen that tell me how many screens she has. HOW MANY?

It is a devoted person who sends me a screenshot at 6:29 a.m. She wins some sort of award. Also, does Page 2 have four apps across the top that don't overlap onto the family picture?

Settings gets a perma-spot. INTERESTING. I don't go to my Settings every day, so I hadn't considered this. How much do I love that this person goes to my church, but her Entertainment folder is four times as full as her Bible folder? In her defense, they're not really writing new books of the Bible.

I am continually amazed by all of the photography apps people download. Do you guys USE all of these photography apps? I can't even find the time to use Instagram. Is Starbuck's a "utility" now? Is that Starbuck's in there?

Oh. This makes me sad. This is our friend L, a brand-new iPhone convert. She hardly has any apps, she doesn't have Tweetbot (HORROR OF HORRORS!), and she doesn't have her percentage-left turned on for her battery. Oh, L. We have so much to teach you. It IS very cute that you apparently have a moon turned on to tell you that it's p.m. instead of a.m.

I had to include Screen 1 AND Screen 2 of this submitter's phone so that you can help explain to me the phenomenon that is people using two screens for items that will fit perfectly well on one. All of these folders will fit on one screen. But I DO love the concept of a folder titled "My Top 8." And I may be stealing it as soon as four seconds from now.

Are you a Christian with an iPhone? I apologize in advance if you're not able to sleep tonight without rearranging your apps, because you're about to experience a crisis of conscience for the ages.

Have you devoted a perma-spot to Jesus? NO?
