    My first page has, of course, all of the essentials (not including stocks and youtube but definitely including the remote and yellow pages apps).



    Page 2 is for bills. I have been through more than twice as many apps as you see here (especially pricey budget apps; the one I stuck with and find most useful, mint.com, is of course free).



    Page 3 is for social networking, including email and (brand new to me) Twitter.



    Page 4 is for reading and includes eReader, Kindle for iPhone, and the Bible and Constitution.

    Page 5 is for health. I have a ton of gym apps (and I've actually weeded out some) but I can't decide on which is most useful, especially since they keep updating all the time. Maybe it would be easier to decide if I ever actually set foot in a gym!



    Page 6 is for games. Kids who use my phone could care less about any other page, but for me it's page 6.



    Entertainment lives on page 7.



    And my page 8 has the apps that I rarely use, but still don't want to delete (or can't, in the case of contacts).

    I'd definitely appreciate folders or categories or whatever Apple wants to call it, if they offer that with the 3.0 software release.

    WOW! Is 8 the limit? With my old Storm the more crap you had on the desktop the worse the memory leak and slower it ran Yet another reason to love the iPhone.

    3 screens (I mistakenly voted 2, so change it if you can)

    I keep the first screen exactly as it came from Apple (with Beejive added), and my next two pages are all business apps, a couple social network apps, and web links. I probably use the Apple apps the most.

    ... and I noticed only one screen shot here with a TiPb shortcut on it. What's wrong with you people?

    :o I had one, but I found myself always using the bookmark in Safari whenever I wanted to access the page, so I wiped the shortcut off when I went through my spring cleaning phase (I have more than twice as many apps stored in iTunes that I deleted than I have on my iPhone! ).

    I have 7 pages packed with apps..... keeping them organized is an extreme hassle, especially when you want to put an app on the first or second page and then you have to correct the resulting mess on each successive page... :-(

    hopefully there is a folder/categorization correction to this mess soon, the home page is my *LEAST* favorite part of the iPhone interface.

    Jail broken iPhones can get an application called Catergories that sets up folders for all of your apps. Fully customizable. The only way to get the most out of your 3g is to break it. I'll upload pictures of what mine looks like in a bit. I'm finishing up a new theme...

    I have 7. I know I have issues!:o I can not seem to get rid of anything. I probably only use about 4 pages worth. The rest are Games. My kids have iTouches and use them mostly for Games. Since we all sync to the same computer I get a lot of their games. (This way I can see what they are playing).

    I need to get rid of many of the Games that I do not play. I have some redundant apps. I need to get rid of some that have out lived their usefulness. ie. Pinger and Fring. Now that Skype, Facebook, and Twitterific has come to my iPhone I do not feel I need these anymore. I also need to settle on one Radio Player and one RSS Reader. I have been trying several out lately, but it is hard to decide. I think that 3.0 will also allow me to get rid of SMSTouch and TouchType for Landscape Mode.

    Now I do use my iPhone for work as well as play so I will naturally carry a few more apps that most. Although I do need to get rid of some....so i can make room for more!!!

    I don't undestand how people have only 3 pages.
    I have...
    One page of sports apps and site linkes.
    One page of weather apps and weather bookmarks.
    One page of internet radio and video apps
    One page of games.
    One page of new links and news apps and traffic info.
    One page of information (Yelp, fandango, movie info, i.TV, etc.)
    A page of some random apps and utilities like wififofum, easy wifi, etc.
    Etcetera.....

    I spend most of my time on the new and sports apps and links.
    I use all of the pages. They are not all full. Some only have 3-4 apps, web apps, or bookmarks.

    I had 8 until I resotred my phone. After that, I decided to only sync the apps I use regularly so I could keep the clutter down.

    I'm curious how many home screen pages do you currently use? I use 3 for the most part. Main screen is for my most used apps that I use every day - consists of internet links, few games, and general apps. 2nd page I use strictly for game and finally the 3rd I use for the apps and links that I use the least.

    Any more than three is really not worth it for me. It used to be that it would take longer to sync but I guess 2.1 has solved that issue. Now it's pretty much just 3 to save some space.

    What about you?
    I use all of them. Why waste?
