Reaching app Limit Help

ok i got like 11 pages full of apps in my ipod touch 2G and i went to go buy a game in the APP store but after i click buy now and went to home screen, the game aint there and when i went to go check in the app store, it says installed but i dont see it anywhere in my Home screen. Is there a way to add more apps after reaching the limit?

Look for it in Spotlight. You can play it from there.

Search with spotlight, I put all my apps in alphebetic order, and use spotlight for the latter half of the alphabet.

Not that I know of. Delete apps you don't use, as I simply cant imagine that you regularly use 9 pages of apps. Remember, if you delete them you can still sync them on again through itunes if you feel the need. Deleting it from the iPod doesn't void your purchase, lol

Edit: Spotlight. Also, screw those guys above me. I type slow, dang nabbit.

Does this mean you can have more than 180 apps installed? And be able to access those that won't fit with spotlight?

ok spotlight search does find the game even though it doesnt show in the home screen because of the app limit, but how do you delete the apps that arent in the Home screen?
