I don't care what you say. I reduced my apps down to one-and-a-half pages and boy does my iPhone feel smoother. Launch times haven't really changed but overall graphics performance on the iPhone have increased. Scrolling through my 2 pages is smoother, launching and quitting apps has a smoother animation to it. I think I may have freed up some memory too. I don't think the iPhone sees 1 home page at a time (you may only see one screen at a time but, I bet all of those icons across all 9 pages are being rendered anyway). Having more apps on your SpringBoard will make SpringBoard use up more memory (RAM). With only 1.5 pages of Apps, my iPhone feels like the day I bought it (when everything was snappy). It seems as you add more apps, the iPhone slows down a bit, but you probably don't notice because it slows down little by little for each app you add. Also, it seems like now I don't have to create a blank page in Safari anymore to free up memory. I almost wanna reduce down to 1 screen but, you can't get rid of Apple's stupid apps (Stocks, YouTube, and Weather). Anyone else notice the difference?
