Install more than 180 apps on the iPhone/iPod touch iOS devices
The latest version of the iPhone OS allows you to have 11 pages of 16 icons, plus the four permanent icons at the bottom of the screen, for a total of 180 apps. You can actually have more than 180, though only 180 icons will be visible.

To get to the invisible apps, just do a search (press Home from the home screen), and type part of the non-visible app's name. I don't know how many of these invisible apps you can have, as I have not tried more than three so far.

[robg adds: As far as I know, the limit is simply based on the available space on your device. Long before that point, though, you may run into a limit with your ability to remember the names of all the invisible apps.]

In my experience, if you have an invisible app and an open space on the home screen, searching for it and opening it will force it to appear on the home screen.

There is only the limitation of how much space you have left on your iPhone or iTouch. I have over 300 apps with no problem. Granted, it can be confusing to remember what is where. Weather, YouTube, Notes, Maps, and other TECH oriented apps I use frequently I know by name are set aside and I access solely through the 'Spotlight' search ...; Now, if they would only allow 5 across ... that would help a LOT!!! They do it in Jailbroken but I choose not to take that route.

This has been known since 3.0 came out in March. You can go to Settings > General > About and it will tell you how many apps you have installed. I have 227

or you can simply jailbreak your iPhone and use Categories (+CategoriesSB) to have folders!

Instead of trying to remember the names of all the apps (I currently have 224), every time I purchase/get a new app, I write the name in Notes (Home page). The list will soon be a long one, but at least you'll know what you have.
