The iPad has the same number of app screens as the 3GS iPhone.

However each screen holds an additional 4 apps.

So with 800 bucks spent I can hold about 44 more apps.

You can stuff a few extra apps on the non-scroll bottom line but that still misses a total of fifty more apps.

So let's talk round numbers and we now have a max of 200 or so apps.

Please open this up to hold apps already.

You can put hundreds of apps on the iPhone. I filled up 9 GB on a 16 GB 3GS with them so far. I am sure you can put thousands on a 64 GB iPad.

The problem is you can only see icons for a couple of hundred. How do you remember the names of the rest? I opened the Apps section in iTunes and choose a variety of print options to make myself lists of the apps I could access. I printed them to PDFs and transferred the PDFs to the iPhone. Then when I need to remember exactly what I can access I pull that up and skim through it to find the app names I want.

Entering the first few letters of the app pops it up in search and then I tap on its icon to launch it.

What will be nice is the upcoming expose update to the iPad that will allow me to switch back and forth among a set of running apps that i found this way if they are all being used in a project.


BTW iTunes now lists your apps grouped according to the devices they will run on. If an app in the app store is a universal app there will be two buttons to select the group of images for either iPhone or iPad in the review section.

For my iPhone I made a web site with hot links to all my apps but that was just too much work.

Apple, I nave now spent more money supporting your business efforts, listen to the voices that tell you we need more access to the apps we own.

Gary i think the limitation is on the number of pages you can see not in the number off app you can download , i have try with my 3Gs and i can download all i want (of course limited by the memory size) for the one you didn't see you can find it by the search function ....

please give me you're comment
