I thought this was a pretty neat concept and I've done this for quite a few people now because they like it too :D What do you all think?

I like it but you hardly have any apps. Start downloading! lol

Been on iOS since 2009, most of the apps on my phone have been here since then. Have no need for extra apps; I don't game or do much "dicking" around, I use my phone for music and... phoning.

I understand you don't want to use much of the apps that Apple has in the App Store but why have an iPhone?

Maybe you like iOS and prefer the design and layout of the iPhone but to spend so much a month with the plans that comes with the iPhone, I just don't understand why you would just settle with the apps that it comes with.

There are lots of productivity, utility, entertainment type apps that can be of use to you. If you don't like gaming, I understand, but there's so much useful apps that can help you with your day to day life.

This is why I have an iPhone. It's to enhance my life.

Any chance you could post that sunset wallpaper for others who like it?

Thank you in advance for doing so.

It's my friend's picture he took with his 4. I'll ask but I'm sure he will be receptive. Give me a few minutes :)

It's not just the ones that came out of the box! Trust me over 3 years I've experimented with loads of apps - over 30GB of them, from COD Zombies (damn good app, I do like gaming I just don't have time/have actual consoles for that usually) to random computing apps. If you can suggest any that you really think work, let me know. But for now I have a few which I've kept through each iteration of my iDevice and have served me well. I'm open to the idea; just haven't found any which have said 'Wow, I need this!'

I don't have just one page but really enjoy keeping my home screen blank. It's such a nice screen that I like to see the wallpaper I set up. I'm glad iOS 6 doesn't freak out like 5 used to.

Great picture. Bad setup... Your top 16 apps require an extra tap to get to. Waste of time for no upside. (IMHO)

How exactly did you achieve root access?
