    Just curious if I am an app junkie and have too many apps on my phone, or if I should start to remove some. I have 5 full screens of apps, and have noticed my phone slow down a bit. 2 of the screens (don't know the correct name for it) are dedicated to games for my kids. Is this too many, or is having 5 screens pretty common?

    Re: How many iphone apps do you have?

    eh, who's to say too many. I have an iPhone 4, and with folders, you can pack quite a few more apps into alot less space. Never really count, but probably near 100... ok, counted... 146. My phone's no where slower than when I have just the stock apps. If your phone appears sluggish, do a restore. This will wipe the phone, reinstall all the apps, then reload all your data. The phone is exactly as it was before (sans any website login's remembered), but the action appears to clear alot of temporary data from the phone improving performance. Also, you may just need a power cycle. Smartphones tend to need to be powered off, then on, just to 'reset' them. That may be all you need. For the most part, the iPhone is as close to Zero maintenance as you can get, but even the iPhone needs an occasional power cycle.

    I didn't think it should slow down due to having a lot of apps. I've never restored it, so I should try that. It shuts down almost nightly due to the heavy use of my kids and myself. Thanks for suggesting the restore.

    Most of my apps are games mostly when I go for work by bus, I prefer playing with my iPhone. All my apps I put into the folders I create like: strategy, logic, action etc. I like order everywhere.

    I used to have tons of pages and apps, but with the way the folders are you can really get things organized and detailed. I probably could delete a lot of apps, its amazing how quickly you stop using some apps.
