Default Make Your Mac Dock Look Like Your iOS Device Screen

I usually do what the author had been doing, which is putting the programs I use most often on the left side and the ones I use infrequently on the right. If I find I haven't been using a program or app all that much, it ends up being taken off the dock and I just access it via the finder if I need it again. This article however, will show you how to put your programs into folders just like on your iOS device, if you feel the need to really clean up your dock. I think that is taking it a bit far but whatever, life is full of options isn't it?*</p>
