    Is there a limit on how much apps can you install on a 32GB iPhone 3GS ? Has anyone reached beyond 500 apps ?

    I have a pretty long list:

    Not sure, I've never heard of a limit to installed apps, only a limit to how many you can see.

    Just curious, do you notice any performance issues with that many apps installed?

    So do you actually have more than 500 apps on your phone?

    No performance issues here. Games runs natively just as if no 3rd party app was installed. I did a fresh install when 3.1.2 was released and i tested this by installing just one app and it was NFSU... everything was normal... then i installed my 500+ apps and there is no absolute difference... it seams like the game runs natively or some sort.

    Even if he did, could you actually use more than 10 in a single day?

    It must take sometime to install all of them. I have 160 Apps and it takes 3 hours on my PC.

    Apple did a good job for designing the OS to run one app at a time without affecting the storage and memory.

    Whoa

    Dude, that's mad apps. I don't feel so bad at 147 on my Mac, maybe about 20 on my iPhone. And I liked that Aardvark thing at first and then it just got silly!

    It's also a good "strategy"? Cause then if they ever start charging for the app you'll still have it :D.

    thats not 500+, it shows 473..

    plus all 9 full pages wont display that many apps.

    9 pages x 16 apps/page + 4 dock apps - 14 default apps = 134 apps.

    and even if you have 11 pages:

    11 pages x 16apps/page + 4 dock apps - 14 default apps = 166 apps.


    why dont you take a screen shot of your home page. i think you're jailbroken.

    Its called spotlight Mr. Mathematician. You can have all the apps you want as long as you have space in the memory of the phone. However, after the last page you must search for the app via Spotlight. Its still on your phone, just not visible.

    I thought I would just get a few apps. you know, weather, like that. Then I saw that Kazam one that listens to a snippet of music and identifies it for you. Then google that you just tell what you want.

    then a free wi fi finder. then snapture and digital zoom. my z88.3 radio station. then pandora radio and speed test, and ps mobile, and dex, and around me, and and and!

    I got ride of a few but currently am at 2 and a half pages. Until I see that next app I gotta have of course!

    Nobody can eat just one!

    Haha, yeah, Kazam is probably what he meant. The Kazam app is definitely sweet!

    Probably the ones he know's he'll use. Also, you only need a simple keyword for search, or even just the letter the app starts with. If he really needs them, he'd remember good key words.

    I wouldnt need that many apps, but some people do, I guess.
