    It's not that its so bad, but:

    1) If you tend to buy/download way too many APPs (me)
    and
    2) You are constantly trying to keep some sense of organization on your screens so you can find stuff (me also)

    Then it gets a little annoying. I have a folder set aside for news, weather and magazines, an ideal resting spot for Newstand. It should be up to me whether or not I put it there.

    Honestly, I don't like the entire idea of non-deleteable APPs (with the exception of Settings). It's my IOS device, I ought to be able to configure it the way I want.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I agree, I have a folder with apps I've never even used (in years), won't ever use, and would rather NOT have sucking up space. I'll never read a magazine on my iPhone screen. It'd drive me bonkers trying to. I liken it to non-removable bloat-ware.

    Thanks for the info, as a BB owner about to make the switch I wasn't able to follow the original logic.

    You are welcome.

    Come on in, the water's fine BTW!
    Really love my iPhone, absolutely the best phone I have ever had, and I'm still running the 3Gs.

    There I agree with you. The fact that I will NEVER actually buy anything via this App could be a 3rd.

    Maybe you need to download/purchase less apps or be more selective about what you do grab.

    I don't know for sure, but I bet if you JB your device (once everything is updated for iOS 5) you'd be able to find a way to do so. The bottom line is it's not your iOS, you just purchased the rights to use it when you purchased the device, the two go hand in hand.

    I am trying to do better . . .

    Absolutely agree with that sentiment, just somehow doesn't always pan out that way. I see something that looks interesting and if it is free or really cheap I get it to try out.

    I don't either. I really find it frustrating that we have to "trick" the OS to put something out of the way when I'm not sure I ever wanted it to begin with.

    Agreed. I don't know why they made it a separate app and changed the way it works. Seems very un-apple to take something so similar and make it so different.
