my total app list and how I organise...> (how do you do it)?

Ok, a bit of a long post but worth it I think. I’ve wanted to write a total list of apps I have and I’m curious to know the total list of others. I would also like to know how other people manage or organise their apps so I thought I’d share what I do first.

I’m hoping to get some inspiration to get more apps so when you mention what you’ve got, can you also include what it does or why you got it J

Finally, if anyone is thinking about getting a app listed below and would like my opinion of it or screen shots, I’ll happily oblige J

I’ve got 4 pages (kind of)
  • Page 1 = Apps I used most often
  • Page 2 = Things I check daily
  • Page 3 = My app folders which extend my 4 pages to 14 so I eally have 17 pages J
  • Page 4 = WebPages saved to the home screen

Then of course the stuff on the dock which are:
  • BiteSMS – a better txt message app
  • Phone
  • Mail
  • Safari
  • iPod

Page 1 – Most used apps

In total, this is 139 apps! – I honestly didn’t realise I had that many, no wonder I’m broke lol – also, there’s a few more apps I have which don’t have icons, things like SSH clients, and SBSSettings and stuff.. I don’t really know how to check what I’ve got there but I reckon I’ve got several ‘hidden’ apps as well, so if I round it up to 140.. that’s what I think i’ve got.

Over to you! – share, c’mon, don’t be shy J

I think you can organize your apps accordingly when you go to the retailer and ask them to modify or personalize your unit.
