    I know we can change apps on task bar (lower tray) but don't know whether to more than 6apps on it, just as MacBook.
    If you have some advice, I'll be appreciated.

    that task bar is called "the dock".

    stock(regular) iPads is limited to 6 as you said, jailbroken iPad's like mine can have as many apps in the dock, i think i have like 10, and also paging(i swipe right or left to flip thru them), with other things in my dock too..by using scrollingboard(a jailbreak tweak), second demo in the video below...

    You can put folders on the task bar too - each containing many apps - it's not quite the same thing, but gives you quick access to more than 6 apps.

    Thanks for good advices.

    I like putting folder on dock, but how to? For MacBook, I think it is possible, but for iPad?

    Same way you move apps, press and hold on them until they wiggle, then you can drag them around, to create folders drag an app on top of another one.

    And when you've created a folder with the apps in you can drag it to the task bar, if there's space there.

    Springtomize is a decent Cydia app for stuff like this. Can also add extra rows to SB amongst other things.

    Guys, I have already installed paid apps from apple store. I afraid about jail breaking will cause me to lose those apps.
    Anyway, I have already group my apps into categorized folders and happy it for now.

    you will not lose any apps, and you can still buy more apps from the appstore when jailbroken, and you buy or get free tweaks from cydia store.
