So why do you still have apps that you don't use?
People like to accumulate things. It reminds me of people having 1000 "friends" on facebook when they probably just talk to 50 of them at best
Incase you need them all of a sudden. My love for apps changes from day to day, it wouldn't be practical to delete and reinstall every time.
I only have around 50 apps, none of them games. That's not a lot though and There's around a dozen on my iTunes Library that aren't on my phone. I spent about $50 on those, mostly games, but why get rid of something that's really not taking up space?

Absolutely, and with free updates you never know if a diamond if the rough will appear. They don't take much space, so it's no different than carrying all your songs (even though you prob only listen to 10% of them)!
With the ability to create folders, there's really no reason to delete them. Like someone said, an update to an app could make it go from rarely used to being used everyday.
I have 4 weather apps and use them for different things. One for radar, one for current conditions, one for forecast, and another for severe alerts. Lol.
I keep the apps to a minimum on my iPhone. But the iPod touch and iPad I kinda went crazy.
They all seemed like a good idea at the time!

I have 89 apps, 7 pages. They just gather up after a while.
Why would you keep apps that you don't use?
I don't know.
Why do you keep songs that you don't use?
I don't know.
Why do you keep photos that you don't look at?
For that time that someone says, "hey, do you have that app?"
My point exactly.
Why do people horde physical things? The shrinks say it's because of some deep seated emotional issues.
If I download an app and like it, I'll keep it. I have about 120 or so (organized in one page of folders). I have the space on my phone so it doesn't bother me a bit.
This talk has encouraged me to do some hoarding this evening. So far tonight, I've downloaded "AroundMe", WebMD, IMDb, and Open Table. I'm on a roll!
Hoard? Define hoard. I have apps. I use them. Sometimes I forget I have a few. Is that hoarding? Sometimes I download something on a whim and then forget to explore it. Is that hoarding?
Because hard drive space is cheap, and uninstalling an app from your phone is as easy as unchecking a checkbox.
Why wouldn't you horde apps?
If one pays for an app that is a few mbs in size, why not save it on the desktop in case you need it in the future... With the size of hard drives and the ability to back-up its not a big deal.
For myself I just entered into using the apps for an ipod as until January I have been running exclusively on a ipod that was pre "classic" and has served me well. Only got the new ipod to see how I would like the interface and the performance, before getting the Iphone this summer.
Bigger question is why do you care?
What are some useful apps? I am new to the iPhone world.
Or movies that you wont watch again
Yikes. I have 121 apps on my iPhone. The thing is, I use almost all of them at least 2 or 3 times a week...except for the games. I have a ridiculous number of games on here. I think I have game ADD. Some of the games I haven't gotten around to playing yet! In my defense, I track the ones I know I eventually want to play until they go on sale or free. I buy them even if I am not planning on using them yet when they are heavily discounted. I figure I'll get around to them eventually...
I have mainly certain categories of apps: games, shopping, news/websurfing, music, and food related (including recipe apps, urbanspoon, etc).
Edit to add: now I am going to try to delete some... LOL
