    I bought my Touch, simply for Apps and I have installed 100s since getting it..

    Quickly, the Springboard got so cluttered, it was impossible to find anything...

    I soon ran into the "9 Pages of Apps" limit, so looked at "FiveRows" and "FiveColumns" to get more per page.. But that made it even more cluttered.

    I then discovered "catagories" and am now using that for things that I don't want on my Springboard.. But I have a question.. Other than the memory in the Touch, is there any limit to the number of apps I can store?

    I can obviously only display 148 (9 Pages) of Apps/Catagories on the Springboard, but can I safely add 100s into Catagories without problems?

    Yes...
    but It might get cluttered in there to.
    Also it can kill your runtime memory, at least it kills mine.

    If there is a limit I would imagine that it's impossible to reach the limit. Just do simple caculation. First how many apps allowed to put in one folder and how many folders we can create. The asnswer is idk but it would be more than enough and btw would anyone has that many apps on their devices ?

    I'm surprised that no one has mentioned that he has been saying "iTouch" the whole paragraph.

    Little tip buddy, folks round here hate that, so before you become hated for saying it you should just say "Touch" or "iPod Touch"

    I think we have got over it, haven't we? Most of them here don't mind it anymore (atleast sane people).
    To the OP,
    It is advisable not to have more than 120 apps in each category, it slows down opening time and also leads to random crashes.

    memory can get very low from so many apps and it could be unorganized all of the apps

    WHere have I said "iTouch"? If I had, it would be no surprise, as I do find myself calling it "iTouch", but looking back at what I wrote, I just called it a Touch. Unless someone edited my post that is, which would be VERY sad!!

    As for my question. Thanks for the replies.. I am not planning on too many apps.. Certainly not going to have more than 10-15 catagories, with an average of 20 apps in each, and then 50-100 apps left on the springboard.

    Cheers
