View Full Version : 9 Page limit - what are you going to do ?
12-23-2008, 03:26 AM
So Apple must have been surprised by the sheer explosion of apps and the number they've sold.
So what happens when you hit 9 pages ?
Does the Iphone stop accepting apps you buy ?
How do you manage the problem - from Itunes ?
Do you just delete them from the iphone then copy them back from Itunes when you want to use the app again?
Hopefully they will introduce something into 2.3

The apps will get pushed to a 'virtual' (hidden) 10th page, which you can't see or access. Those apps will return when you remove apps from the first 9 pages again.
At least, that's what I've heard. I use iTunes to keep my apps down to 4-6 pages. (It used to be 4, it's 5 now but I guess it'll be 6 in a few weeks. I do prefer to clean my pages up once in a while!)

thanks for the reply.
So using Itunes - do you just not sync them back to the Iphone (the ones you want to keep on your pc/mac but not show on the Iphone pages) or do you actually have to delete them ? Sorry a bit confused as I've been mainly installing apps via the onboard appstore.

^ No, you don't have to delete them from your iTunes. Just un-check the box of the app you don't want when syncing...

When you connect the device, you get all these tabs, one for music, one for video, etc. At the end there is one for applications. There, like EDNG said, you can simply uncheck the box for the apps you don't want to sync.

cheers for the replies. I'll give it a go tonight
this is why i love my jailbroken iphone, i have the categories app with about 74 games in a folder and also a media folder for all radio apps. so no biggie to me, but would like to see more pages added.

Apple seriously needs to change the way the pages work and maybe consider something like folders. I'd also like to see a change to reorganizing apps. It's way too tedious :P
