    What?

    Are you referring to the Springboard in the iPhoneOS?

    Or am I missing something.

    Eh? The Springboard is every page? It holds all your applications.

    This could be my mistake but perhaps its an iPhone app only--but I thought it applied to both the iTouch 3G as well--does it?

    The iPhone and iPod touch both run the same OS, just different versions. The springboard is essentially the "homescreen" where all your icons are shown.

    The Springboard is to the iPhone/touch as the Desktop is to a Computer. You know how you can put icons on your desktop for easy access? That's essentially what the Springboard is.

    A standard non-broken iPhone/touch displays ALL apps on the springboard. A Jailbroken iPhone/touch can get apps that allow you to hide icons from your springboard, making it easier for you to find the ones you use often, and hiding the ones you don't. Even if an app isn't on the springboard, you can always pull it up by searching for it.
