    I'm waiting for Documents to Go as well the nearest I have to what I want at the moment is sugarSync.

    Is there a reason for the 9 page limit? I can understand the limit on my 1st gen phone but I would have thought that it would have been extended for the 16Gb phones. With SimplifyMedia, I don't actually need to keep my music on my phone and all my photos are stored on SugarSync so it's not a question of not having enough space.

    All my old web apps that still work are stored in one place with AppMarks. If There was a way of doing this with apps from the store, it would be much easier to store all the apps - you couls have a folder for games, a folder for utilities etc.

    I'm shocked to see that most of you have more than 4 pages... You honestly can not be using all of these apps/links on a daily basis...
    well ash as I'm sure you noted from my previous post. I don't use all of my apps daily but most of them I do use at least once a week.

    Even though I've got 7 pages, I do use them regularly. Anything that I don't use for a while gets replaced by something new (and usually free).

    mreclass, yeh a little slide lag here and there, but i still like seeing something behind the icons, and the changing of the picture is a refresh, but i dont really show my phone off or anything so no comments, really care less what they think since i love my phone, and since i live right outside good 3g coverage its perfect for me. 1.35 mb dl last time i tested which is good enough. Only had it for 2 weeks, and just show off to my sister here and again when we are looking for something.

    Oh OK, I figured there would be a bit of lag but I think it would be worth it for the badass backgrounds!

    Well I just wanted to know more about that so thanks for the information.

    Im flexing 3 at the moment,

    1. Is daily use stuff, so alarm clock, facebook, the sun newspaper, twinkle etc
    2. Thats my utilities page, so Traffic info, tube status, shazam, conversions, air sharing
    3. Games with a few spillover utilites that don't fit on page 2

    I don't see myself going much over 4, My iPhone is pretty full already and its rare an app comes along nowadays which doesn't duplicate functionality I have elsewhere

    I have 6... I'm outa control!

    1. Stuff I actually use on a daily basis
    2. Utility type stuff like SplashID, Google...
    3. Games, and some other random stuff
    4. More games and random stuff
    5. Things I RARELY use but want to keep. Like Urbanspoon (this page is not full)
    6. Jailbroken stuff

    After going through my pages, I think I need to organize them again.

    1.5 screens and holding! (Slacker won't work when stored within a "Categories" folder so that is why it's out there on it's own.

    Currently 4 is the magic number! Wish apple would let us use folders like the jailbreak app that's out!

    I had 5. But recently scaled it back to 4. First two are serious, then games, then mindless stuff I hardly use, like the StunOMatic app, and level etc.

    I am up to 8 pages. However, I do have about 50 games that I don't store on my iPhone because I just don't have the room. I try to keep just a page or two for the games I am currently playing.

    4 Full pages, I can't say I use all of them on a daily basis, hell there are a couple I rarely use, but when I need them, I need them, so they stay.

    I have 5 pages. The first 2 are the heavy use apps, the others are pretty randomly spread out. I often debate doing a total reorganize but at this point my mind is so programmed to where all the apps I use the most are that I think organizing them any other way would be counterproductive. I did however go through a few days ago and clean out all the useless apps that I couldn't remember the last time I had used.

    Managing my app pages is an ever evolving process for me. Right now I have 7 pages, not all are full.

    I have my "main pages" that are apps I use frequently then others for games or categories I just make up myself.

    Page
    1. Home screen, all apps I use many times a day.
    2. Home screen 2, more apps I use often. Settings is also here so people checking out my iPhone are less tempted to go into them.
    3. Half page of utility type apps.
    4. Half page of entertainment, iFart, iChuck, Magic8ball, LOLCats, etc.
    5. Games
    6. More games.
    7. Apps I'm evaluating or maybe waiting for an update to see if they get better due to issues.

    I'd like some better management options. I also have a ton of apps and games I do not have on the iPhone in iTunes. I've been meaning to do some house cleaning lately.

    And yes, I am totally addicted to the app store. Every DAY I am in the app store just browsing looking at new stuff and what not. It is seriously like crack, I just cannot get enough; ever. Is there an Application Annonomus anyone knows about?

    I have 6 pages.

    The first page has the iPhone built in apps.

    The second page has the utilities I use the most.

    The third and fourth pages have games I like to play.

    The fifth page is for my daughter - the games and apps she likes.

    The sixth page has apps that I am reviewing or plan to review soon.

    I have 4 complete pages of apps right now. The first page is how it comes out of the box sans the clock (which is on the last page now) and 3 apps that I use the most. The 2nd page is news/sports apps, and 3rd and 4th pages are little used apps but still used.

    I have had 5 pages at one point but deleted some because I never used them at all.
