    Most of you know this already but this is for those who dont know.

    You can install 250 apps on the iPhone but only 180 will have actual icons on the phone. The others you will have to use the search function to bring them up.:apple:

    All those apps would make your iPhone hotter than molten lava from China.

    I actually thought there was no limit to the number, just the flash drive space you had available.

    Why? One, you can't use them all at once, and two, it's more like, "Slower than molten lava."

    China? :confused:

    How typical of Apple. Who the hell are they to dictate how many apps I can have on my phone? Does Steve Jobs want to come to my house and count the number of squares of toilet paper I use? (For the record, I don't usually count the squares).

    It just so happens that I have 278 apps and I add apps at the rate of 1-2 per day. So now, what am I supposed to do?

    It's hard enough to figure out just which apps I will need on a daily basis. I end up sitting in my driveway and wondering if I forget that one app that I will need later. It gets so hard I sometimes forget to eat.

    I decided that I am going to send an email to sjobs@mac.com as well as to every Apple blog out there. My voice will be heard. I also started a Twitter petition and would love you to sign it. http://twitition.com/omfg1!

    Stand up and let your voice be heard. First they came for the Firewire ports, then the Expresscard slot and now they are limiting my right to place apps on my phone (og course limited by storage space, I'm not nuts).




    Relax, Francis. Just passing the time at my nephew's birthday party. I've never seen so many rug rats in one room. There are like 60 of them. Help me!!!

    Even with 32GB I can't really find the need for more then 20 apps in addition to whatever is there by default.

    I have 3 pages of apps. I couldn't imagine needing more than what Apple allows.

    As usual, people don't know how to read. The article doesn't say the limit is 250 apps, it says they stopped adding more apps at 250.

    From what I read, there is a limit to how many app icons show up on the phone, but there is no limit to how many apps you can have on your phone--aside from memory of course. Once you hit the 11 app screen limit you can still install apps, however you can only find them with the spotlight search.
