    I think I've found my dream iPhone setup. One page of apps!

    All Apple apps except for Twitterrific on the first page!

    The only thing that slightly annoys me about this setup is that often times I wanna scroll to another page out of habit and when it doesn't move, it freaks me out for a second or so.

    I believe I'm probably the only one here with only one page of apps. The worst part is... I've purchased so many apps over the last year and the only one I constantly use is Twitterrific... wow.

    Did you use Parental Controls to get rid of a couple apps or something?

    Why would you want to do this?

    Next week's post will be, "I can't live with one page of apps!" :)

    No I did not. I'll post a screenshot if you want.

    It looks soooooo clean. I used to just have apps on the second page for when I wanted to show someone else how cool the iPhone was, but I realized that I was hardly ever even using those apps on a day-to-day basis and they were just taking up a half-a-page for no reason. So I did an experiment... figured out what I didn't use and deleted them. I just needed a twitter client and I like Twitterrific.

    He's not on 3.0

    My ideal dock goes something like this: Contacts, Calendar, App Store and Settings.

    "It looks soooooo clean."

    Right - because having a dot or two underneath your apps makes it SOOOO messy. You have issues.

    You're truly a piece of work

    Hey... do you ever stop making fun of me? Just because I think it looks clean doesn't mean it looks messy otherwise. It's just cool to have one page of apps to look at instead of swiping through multiple pages... it's not about the dots at the bottom.

    That reminds me... another thing you can't get rid of in 3.0 are the dots at the bottom because of Spotlight.

    I'm not making fun of you. I'm pointing out that you have issues. I take that very seriously and don't think it or you is funny at all.

    Perhaps you can explain how having a front page vs having other pages of apps makes it look clean if its not about the dots at the bottom. How else can you tell there are even other screens your iphone has?!?!

    The dots don't bother me at all. I just like the fact that it looks like 1.1.1 days when there were no other screens to scroll through. You unlocked your iPhone and it was only one page to look at. To me, that's more clean than having 2 or 3 pages.

    Read my question again

    Without the dots (since you said they don't bother you) - how can you tell on page one if you have more than one page of apps

    Fact is - you can't. It's only in YOUR MIND that you know you have other pages. So it doesn't LOOK cleaner - it just that you KNOW you don't have other pages. It's a mental thing - it's not a "look" thing.

    Dots aside - if you showed an iPhone with 10 pages of apps or just one page - how would someone else know?

    They wouldn't. THAT is my point spelled out.

    TheSpaz, this isn't your personal blog. Stop treating the forums like it.

    I see. However, I did not remove the dots. Therefore if I *did* have more than one page, you'd be able to tell.

    And rants about AT&T service is better?

    So, to you, it's better to have to somehow go through safari, to find when movies are playing, what's on TV, what song is playing, where to get that book at a cheaper price, sports scores, listen to radio, edit your camera pics, check your memory, go to your bank site.....you get the point? This "cleaner" look is good for you? Not having a few dots is better? Essentially making the iPhone's "ease of use" not, so that the apps take up less space on the flash drive?

    Edit: For the above post, I don't think samcraig is saying he doesn't believe you that you don't have more than one page of apps.

    I think I give up. THESPAZ says it's not the dots that make it look cleaner... but the dots are the only visable cue (am I wrong?) that there is more than one page to switch to. So if the dots don't matter to him, then why does it look cleaner?

    And iphone.aggie - you're using logic - and that has NO place here or with THESPAZ.

    Hmm, I'm surprised you think that looks cleaner.

    I think having mostly empty pages (though possibly a few more of them, but not more than 4 or so) looks cleaner.

    I really hate full iPhone pages.

    I see what you're saying, but remember... I did a test to see what I actually use.

    - I can find when movies are playing through Safari with ease.
    - What's on TV? Don't care.
    - What song is playing? I know my own music and I hate the radio.
    - I don't buy books.
    - Sports? Not for me.
    - Listen to radio? I already don't like radio and plus, it doesn't run in the background. (It does in Safari though)
    - I don't need to do photo editing on an iPhone. I have a computer for that.
    - Check my memory? Are you talking about RAM? No need to... I'm on 2.2.1.
    - Go to my bank site? First of all, my bank doesn't have any apps and second of all, my bank's website doesn't even work on the iPhone.

    You're trying to convince me to use more apps that just don't interest me.
