    I've gotten to the point of having over 200 apps and am having difficulty figuring out how to organize them. I'm using launcherpro beta for the dock, on my main screen I have the beautiful home widget with 8 of my most used apps (gmail, fbook, flashlight, camera, contacts, my rss reader, advanced task killer widget, google maps). I have 5 screens total and on my farthest right screen I have my twitter/facebook widgets.

    I'm having trouble deciding how to organize my other screens, should I use folders and sort them into categories or just put the most used apps on my home screens and access the rest from the menu? Any other suggestions? This is a good problem to have, I'm so thrilled with my droid :)

    Download "folder organizer" and/or "App Organizer" from the market, its awesome. I hated the stock android "manilla folders" because they looked so ugly. I used to have all my apps on 7 screens and it was a PITA, I stumbled upon folder/app organizer and love it since you can create custom groups/folders to add apps to and give the folders custom icons. It slimmed my 7 screens down to 3 (2 for widgets and my home
    screen for my folders).​

    I find that the paid version of market app "More Icons" is extremely helpful.

    Folder Organizer. The only program I will use to hold my 150+ icons/apps.

    FolderOrganizer. I use the pay version.
    I have labels for scanners, cameras, direct dial contacts, tools, utilities.
    I also use it to change all the icons for my apps and shortcuts.
