    I'm very curious as to how others arrange their apps within their iPod touch.

    I'm a new owner and am having trouble settling on how to leave my apps, in what order, and what page.

    Essentially right now they're just organized by how important they are. In the first page I have Stanza, airsharing and google's mobile app just to name a few. And in the 2nd page I have a few free games, restaurant finders, flashlight app and music and app store. Finally in the 3rd page the apps I don't really use like clock or calculator. Obviously I can access any app easily so not much of a biggie. But can't for the life of me settle on what apps should go where and why.

    Finally, the 4 bottom apps. What apps do you have there? I'd assume they'd be the most important to you, no? I have the default ones now.

    I have 3 pages so far. One is the 'main apps' that is mostly all apple apps, like contacts, calendar, youtube, etc. The 2nd page is my game/productivity apps and my 3rd page is preferences/installing apps. The docks has my main apps I use, Ipod, MXTube, Web and Mail....I guess I should just write down what apps I have on each page.

    1st Page: Calendar, Contacts, Notes, Clock, Maps, Weather, Showtimes, Stocks, Youtube, Photos

    2nd Page: Splash Money, Chores, Calculator, Koi Pond, Aki Mahjong, Sudoku, Aurora Feint, Othello

    3rd Page:iTunes, AppStore, Installer (probably get rid of this though), Cydia (because of this), Prefs, BossPrefs, Winterboard.

    Nice. How's money splash btw? Can it sync up a online banking or something?

    I just made my 4 main apps at the bottom stanza, I procrastinate, music and videos.

    In the first page still have the google app as the first one. I'm a huge google guy. Also airsharing song with YouTube mail and the other apple ones. In the 2nd are games and other random ones from the app store like ebay, aim, phone flix, remote and others that I might use but not on a daily basis. Finally the third page has the ones I really might just use once a week like the zippo lighter app or calculator. Feeling content here people. :cool:

    well I have about 5 pages, one line on each. The most useful always in dock (videos, safari, music). I also keep apps i use most often on the right so i dont have to stretch my thumb, or god forbid, use another finger.

    all apps i barely use are hidden with poof and accessable via dock.

    First page I have all apps that come with it, except for stocks, which i replaced with Palringo. And they are half randomly ordered. Down the bottom i have Videos > Photos > Safari > music. I am thinking of moving photos and Videos out because i dont use them as much as i thought.

    2nd page is all my games

    3rd page is Facebook, twitter, myspcae, ebay, airsharing, some weather radar, and a few ones i dont use.

    Splash money is great. I love it. I haven't used the online sync with my bank, I just don't like my private info floating on the web. From what I seen in a video though it seems very cool how it will download and show you all your transactions.

    1. All the original Apple apps, including the Nike+ on my 2G, with Safari, Music, Videos, and Settings in the dock.

    2. Games!

    3. Apps that work without internet, but are not exactly 'games', like molecules and iSaber.

    4. Webapps and applications that require internet to function, such as the ebay and Woot apps.

    That's it! I used to have eight pages, but now that I know which apps I use, I only keep those half on there. I love my iPod Touch! :apple::apple:
