    You can't group them in a folder as such (yet), buy hold down on any app for a couple of seconds and they will all wobble, you can then move the app where ever you want it to group apps together.

    There is this really great document out there called the iPad User Guide that unfortunately, Apple does not include with the iPad. It is available as a free .pdf download or you can view the online version using Safari with the bookmark that is already there.

    Lots of great stuff in there, like --

    Unfortunately, (or fortunately, for some) jail breaking is the only way to add functionality for things apple "conveniently" forgot to include in the firmware.
    Having 11 pages of apps is very inconvenient.

    But being able to re-arrange your screens is very much possible in the Apple environment with no jailbreak required.

    As far as 11 pages not being enough, that will give you 220 apps plus the 5 static apps. When iOS4 comes out with folders, that will give you 2420 plus the five static apps.

    I was referring to folders not rearranging single apps, sorry for the confusion!

    Folders are nice, but not everything should be in folders. For those who only have a couple of pages of apps, there is little need for folders. And if you have a lot of apps, you can group them with the closer pages being more frequently used items.

    Sorry, but you can honestly tell me that you have 11 pages of apps and use all of them constantly and cant live with removing any of them.
