    Phone, Mail, BeejiveIM, Messages. Primary communication tools.

    Safari is rare for me, usually only access it when other apps toss me over to it.
    Camera I strictly access via lockscreen.

    The next up most common would be Reeder or Facebook.

    I just think folders on the dock look kind of ugly. I used to have 1 folder on my dock put I soon got rid of it.

    I think the folders implementation on iOS in general is quite ugly. But I like the functionality so I put up with it!

    i find it interesting how many people don't use safari enough to put it in the dock. i don't use it very much either. i suppose i just have always had it in the dock since my iphone 2g.

    i used it much more back then since apps weren't as good. right now i just use it to view websites that don't have apps associated with them or for fb (the app is horrid).

    i am going to try putting mail in the dock and see how i like it

    Same here, the default four: Phone, Mail, Safari, Music.

    I did have the native Gmail app in place of the stock Mail.app for approximately 0.81 seconds after which time I realized the Gmail app was...not very good.

    Messages, Safari, Music, Settings.

    I've always had Settings in the dock - just treating it like any other app on a home screen seems very strange.

    i had settings in the dock for a little while a long time ago. i now keep wifi on all the time and i turn bt on for the car.

    the reason i have the camera in the dock is because 1) i'm not quite used to it being on the lock screen and 2) i can access if faster if the phone is already unlocked when i want to take a picture...though that isn't usually the case so i'm thinking of changing the camera out for safari...

    which do you use more safari or the camera?

    On my dock instead of safari, I used to have Perfect browser, but that was laggy zooming in and I went back to safari.
