    I made a joke about it in another thread, but I would love to see a developer to take each one of these over-done and common applications and combine them into one multi-purpose application that uses up only one icon.

    When you click on it you can then bring up all the menu of the little apps. Like the flashlight, the tip calculator, to do list and any other app that has more than 5 or 6 incarnations already.

    One handy app, to clean up the clutter.

    Then as the next overdone app comes out, you can easily just add a similar one to the multi-tool application and be done with it.

    that is a great idea too bad it won't happen. most developers just like to see there name.

    What I've found after downloading quite a bit is that I use:

    Main Page: native apps
    2nd Page: Games
    3rd Page: Utilities & Productivity

    so it's basically getting sorted out itself.

    Apple just need to allow a folders to be made.

    I do the same thing with my apps. Just keep the same apps on the same page. Makes it nice and simple to find an app you want.

    The Swiss army sucks - been there for A LONG TIME and hated every second of it.

    I've done exactly the same - just with pages 2 & 3 swapped round. Works nicely :)

    1. Most used programs (native/non-native)
    2. Utility/Productivity/Information Storage
    3. Games
    4. Native Apps I don't use (any way to remove them? replaced weather, notes, sms (texting blocked), and stocks, don't use calculator much so it's there too)
