I've had this issue for awhile now, but am just now wanting to fix it. I have like 8 pages of apps; don't ask why (I just like to have apps). Every time I download a new app through the App Store it does not appear on my iPhone but when i do the "Search" function I can see it and use it.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

That might be your problem.
I have 2 suggestions: one would be to connect to iTunes and under the apps section on the phone, see how many pages you have and if the apps you're looking for are on the last page(s). If so, then you have your answer. You went beyond the 9 pages Apple allows.
Make 2folders and move the appropriate apps to them. (games, utilities, etc). And then drag the apps from the last page to an earlier one and sync.

You're right. Thanks for your help. I have 11 pages and the rest of the apps are not showing. I should delete apps I never use. But I like a lot of apps. Especially since it doesn't really slow phone down.

You don't have to delete the apps, you can deselect them to reduce the number of pages on the phone.

well, he would have to delete them off the phone, not out of iTunes. I have over 260 apps in iTunes, but 154 installed on my phone

I have a similar number of apps, I just deselect the ones I don't want from iTunes to keep them off the phone and it works fine for me, I have 99 apps on my phone with a few folders.

Hi...I like using "tweaks" to modify my iPhone browsing experience....currently into a really minimalist type look... This is my current default page.



The Dock(above pic) is scrollable, scroll to the left will give me 4 folders holding all my apps, scroll to right will give me iPod control/access. I like to access my apps via "activation gestures".



All my apps can sit on the side scrolling dock if I wanted...At the moment I've got about 16 app that I use constantly. I use a lot of activation gestures...

Look's cool, but I like to have all my apps in pages. However, I did put all my games in folders today which organized a lot and made less pages. How can I change the name of a folder?

Press and hold the folder, it will pop up with all the apps wiggling. You will see the name of the folder, click in that box and you can rename from there.
