I have about 93
do you put all the travel, games, news into separate folders too?
139, half are games. I mostly organize them in folders according to genre, the ones I use most often being left out of the folders.
I've only got a handful. Facebook, a banking app, eBay, Kijiji, Angry Birds, Flashlight, Jumbline 2 (a game), and Cydia (obviously ).
The only folder I have is for "utilities" which comprises of the stock apps: Clock, Compass, Voice Memos, Game Center, Stocks, Weather, iTunes, YouTube, Notes, and Terminal from Cydia.
Because I use my iP4 for both work & pleasure, I continue to refine the layout of my apps. I'm focused on insuring I have only the most important ones on the first screen.
In addition while I've tried quite a large number of apps in the process of identifying what works best for my needs, my priority is the concept of "less is more".
I tend to use my iPhone quite heavily throughout the day, as I'm highly mobile. For that reason alone, I find that folders slow me down. I only use them as a repository for apps I'm testing, or apps I only use once in a while.
To your question of how many, I'm guessing I have approx. 24 that are used frequently each day. Then there are another 30 or so that see weekly use. Finally, I have about eight folders organized by category which contain the rest of my apps.
122. I had more, but I recently got rid of a lot.
81. About 2/3 are games. I use folders except for the apps I use everyday like whatsapp, phone, clock etc
55. If it does not get used it gets deleted.
Around 20 games
Around 30 productivity and news
The rest: no need anymore
59 on my home screen, iPod, Safari, Messages & Phone in the dock, and the rest in 5 folders which I use in InfiniDock.
Also 14 hidden, like Weather, PerPage+, MobileTerminal etc.
Recently cleaned out a few apps I realised I NEVER even used
Only one game, the rest are utility and productivity apps.
If I don't use them, they are deleted.
268 on my iPhone
361 on my iPad
I have no idea why I keep so many when I only use a fraction of those on a regular basis. I could have some kind of hoarding problem.
How many wipe with your left hand?
87 on my iPhone (1/3 are games)
243 on my iPad (2/3 are games)
On my iPad I'm using folders to store them. But this doesn't work on my iPhone, because its on 3.1.3
Lol that reminds me of the hoarding episode in south park.
On topic: I have 78 apps no my iPhone 4.
Holy cow! I had no idea so I checked. It says 305 and I know I have more than that NOT on the iPhone anymore. I honestly cannot believe there are 305 apps on my phone. Time for a hand (finger?) count...
Edit: OK, handcount gives me 333 apps. I assume that means the 28 "extra" are legacy apps?
146, but have just deleted a ton I didn't use.
In settings it says 26 Applications.
In total (with preinstalled Apple Apps) I have 48 Apps.
I try to get rid of Apps I don't really need.
75...don't use them all though
120--15 on my primary homescreen, the rest sorted into seven folders by category. (Jailbreak + FolderEnhancer means a lot fewer folders needed to fit them all while still keeping them sorted). Two homescreens total.
iPad has 100 apps and just one homepage. Folder categories on both are identical.
i just trimmed down my iPhone to about 150 apps. i have about 230 on my iPad and iPod touch. probably about 70% are games. of that about 90% are for my kids.
I only keep the ones I use frequently so 8
Just 7 app store apps. Covers my needs
82 App Store apps.
Default ones is about 21 (still on 4.0, so no Game Center app).
^^My first page, apps are organized in that exact order like that first gen iPhone pic. It has been that way for me since 2008 when I got a first gen. I usually change the homescreen background with a sunset wallpaper. I never have a 4th row because I want enough space to swipe across my finger to the next page. With my Pixi Plus, I can't have this level of space, so apps get accidentally opened when I swipe across and it doesn't help it has a 2.63-inch screen.
On my second page, I have 12 folders and are all in alphabetical order. Again, no 4th row. I am OCD enough that I can never have more than 82 third-party apps because the second and third row of folders has to match each other in quantity of apps which is 6. The top folders in the first row has 9 or more. I like things looking very even. It is an OCD similar to David Beckham when he needs to have the same exact order of drinks in his refrigerator. If there is an odd number, he throws it out.
The default ones like iTunes, App Store, Contacts, Compass, and Voice Memo are in one of those folders. I hate that Apple with iOS5 is giving us more icons like Newsstand, Reminders, and the Video App.
On my phone, 40.
Downloaded, about 1000.
