    I see on other forums that some posters' touches are crashing when they've added more than 79 applications. I "only" have 73 apps now so I haven't had any problem. Anybody here run into this problem???

    It seems that since there are 9 pages available with 16 apps per page, you should be able to have 144 apps plus the 4 in the dock.

    May I ask whether you use more than 10 of them on a regular basis?

    There are a few others that are there just because they're "cool". After I evaluate their usefullness some may be deleted.

    Sorry. I was re-reading my original post and it seemed a tad scathing. I never had much use or time for anything but iPhysics. Which appears to be missing from your list!
    :D

    Bloody hell, how big is your touch? (32?) Don't risk it though, would be a bugger to install them again :)

    Someone should make a backup application..

    on elwhat how it works? It just makes a simple backup file, that is easy to copy, and allows you to revert to this file, so you only have to install it after a restore

    Which Repo is it and where exactly does the back up go? Is it easy to get, easy to re-install? Does it keep your settings?

    Cheers bud
