    As of now I have 4 pages of apps / webclips on my iPhone, or 64 icons total. Every time I add something new I have to go through this pain in the ass process of rearranging things, moving the new addition to the last screen and then putting all the other icons back. It's annoying. Is there a desktop GUI app out the that does this? I'm on a non-jailbroken (but willing to do so) 2g iPhone , but I'm sure those on a 3g phone would be appreciative too.

    There is an app for jailbroken phones. But since you have apps, but are not jailbroken it sounds like you are on 2.0, which can't be jailbroken (yet.) So you are currently a SOL.

    there ought to be a pane in the settings for apps where you can choose to turn off your applications without removing them, so that the icon disappears but you can always go back into the settings and turn it back on

    I would really like there to be folders you can make and put certain apps in it.. and be able to make other folders for webclips...:apple::apple:

    Something like Quicksilver would be perfect. Or basically Spotlight. A search that is super fast to access and searches your files, contacts and apps.

    I thought the same thing as I have 3 pages of Apps but I am fine just going to the page with the App

    Isn't that big a deal

    I just need to keep the pages the same way so I can remember which pages have which apps

    Totally agree. Although shoving them all to the second or third page isn't that bad.
