How To Delete Apps Not On Home Screen
My dad's iPad has quite a bit of apps (400+), but most of them he doesn't use and they are just wasting space. Since there are so many they do not all fit on the Home screens and the only way to access them is by using the search feature on the iPad. What would be the easiest way to delete those apps? It would take a while to delete all the apps from the home screens to fill in with the other apps so I was wondering if there was a simpler method.

Unable To Lock The Home Button And The Delete App Functionality
My 18 mo old son loves to press the Home button. That means whenever I give him an app to play with, he exits out of the app by pressing the Home button. Now he's free to flick the screens and sometimes I've caught him at the "delete this app?" phase.

So is there a way to disable the Home button and/or disable the wiggle&delete functionality (maybe in iOS 4 due out this summer)? There should be Childproof settings next to Accessibility settings!

Home Screen - Only 12 Icons?
Is anyone else having trouble putting more than 12 app icons on their home screen. I can fill up subsequent screens with 20 apps (4 rows of 5), but when I go to add more than 12 on the home (first) page it will not let me drag an app icon onto the first page. This is quite bizarre or am I simply missing something?

Kindle Home Screen
I've downloaded my books purchased on Kindle via the Kindle app, but it says that I will find them to read on the Kindle Home Screen and/or via a Kindle Home tab.What looks to be a Kindle Home screen is currently filled with all the books I don't want to port to the iPad, and I can't find any option for reading the ones that I have moved over.I'm sure this is a basic, stupid question, but I am stumped.

App Density On The Home Screen
I seem to only see pictures of the iPad showing only rows of 4 apps each on the home screen. Why do they make a device that has over 4x the screen area yet not be able to display more apps per screen than the iPhone/iPT? I think due to the larger resolution and subsequently the spacing, you get more rows than the iphone, but still just 4 wide? The gaps between the icons are huge. You could easily fit 6 or more icons in that doc nyways, I'm not really complaining persay because I don't know the capability for sure, but rather wondering if anyone saw pics or video showing the iPad with a home screen full of apps, and does it ever get more than 4 wide?

Home Screen Zoomed Up
Was cleaning my screen when the Home screen zoomed up. I thought how neat didn't know you could zoom up the home screen. That was until I tried to zoom it down. It doesn't respond to pinch. I let it sleep and cut back on and it's still the same. Had to hard reset since the slid was off screen. Now it comes back on and it's still zoomed so I can't even go to any Apps since I can't get to the slid.

Home Screen Wallpaper
It may just be me but while I like the Lock Screen Wallpaper, and I like the idea of a Home Screen Wallpaper, especially with all the cool photos out there, I find that having a photo on the Home Screen behind the app icons makes it harder to spot your apps. I understand organizing your apps and how 4.0 will bring folders, and that after a while you will just know where apps are but it seems like they get 'lost' a little with a photo behind them.

Breaking Up Home Screen
Here's the problem. I bought the iPad 3G because I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I bought the wifi only model. My roommate on the other hand bought the wifi only model knowing we had no wifi at home(dumb ass). I specifically told him he was going to be disappointed. He bought it anyway(***hole). Now he's always trying to use mine. It's pissing me off at a high level. He's started the "your stingy and your obsessed with the iPad" chants. I respond with a solid "I know!!" What should I do?!! Maybe I should tie him up in the basement, sell his iPad and use the money to buy really expensive apps for mine! Where's that damn rope?!!!!

Using The Add To Home Screen Option
I am loving my iPad more everyday. I went a little app happy just like I did for my iPhone but now I am finding + option on task bar next to bookmark is great. It gives the option down loading a lot of the web pages I enjoy such as Twitter and Facebook without using the mobile apps. In some cases safari is more workable and this way I don't have to into base computer to change options. I am regretting buying some of the apps when I did not need them. So for the newbies take your time with the apps. Play with your baby first. Try the free apps first. Don't misunderstand me apps are necessary to keep your iPad and I love most of them. I just mean this a computer and if you open webpages to safari and put them on your screen you will have access to some of the web pages without using app.

App Goes Back To Home Screen

Customizing The Home-screen?
IMO, this is the one thing that Android destroys Apple on... Customization.As far as I can tell, Apple allows you to rearrange icons, make folders, and change wallpapers... But that's about it.With Android, you can do all that, plus there are countless customizable widgets, live wallpapers, multiple screen transitions, and the list goes on.

Now I do realize that some of Androids customizability also means less stability... And if this is the reason Apple limits it's user customizability then I understand. But it would be really nice to tweak my iPads home screen a little bit more.Am I missing some options? What else can be done other than changing the wallpaper, creating folders, and rearranging icons?

Add This URL To Home Screen - Display New Posts
I want to create an icon on my iPad that launches Safari to the URL that displays "New Posts" here on MacRumors.I have no clue how to do this. The URL is: is, as soon as you surf to that URL, it updates to a new URL (that's for a specific search). So when you go to press the "+" button to add to Home Screen, the URL you really want saved is no longer there.

Applications Layout On Home Screen
Hey this is something small but it's kind of annoying, when I switch from portrait to landscape mode I go from having a 4x5 layout of apps (4 apps across and 5down) to a 5x4 layout. The result basically keeps my top left app on the page grounded but all my other apps end up shifting to accomadte the different layout, making me have to do a double take and hunt for an app that might usually be in my top row for example. It's nothing that is crucial but it's a little thing that makes the process of going between apps from landscape to portrait and wanting to start another app a bit longer to search and find. Maybe there is a way to adjust the grid in either landscape or portrait so they are both 4x5 or maybe 5x5 would make more room for apps too. I feel there are a lot of empty spaces between the app icons that are wasted real-estate IMO
