    So I've had my iPad since 5.0.1, and I've noticed that ever since updating to 5.1 I don't have a limit in my apps I can fit in folders. Or at least I think I don't. In my utilities folder I have 18 apps, on a non jailbroken iPad. Did 5.1 make folders bigger or has this always been the case? I never use to use folders because I was jailbroken and had all my icons in one folder for part of my theme, so I installed infinifolders and didn't look back. I dunno, just curious!!

    I noticed that too. I have a lot of apps in my many folders and I can still continue to add to them without any limits so far.

    Limit is 20 apps. I know because I have three folders just for my games. :D

    (When in portrait view) 5 down, 4 across. Been like that for a long time now.

    This is one of those annoying super basic things that Apple just seems to ignore. Why on earth can't I have as many things as I like in one folder? It works fine because I have a jailbroken iPhone that does just that.
