Do you have trouble keeping names straight? Or maybe you didn’t catch a last name? Use emoji icons to add a little detail to your contact. If you have a group of girls you always meet for happy hour, put a cocktail emoji next to their name. When you want to set up a girls night, just type the cocktail emoji into your phone and all their numbers will come up.

Step 4: App folders

With so many apps available, it can clutter your phone. You can eliminate this issue by renaming folders on your phone. For example, if you have a folder about notes or reminders, change the name to an emoji of a notepad and pen. Simple details can make a huge difference.
