This is not just related to iDevice apps, but applications in general. Usually, I tend to try and clear up the amount of applications that I have installed on my devices, but now and again I forget that the amount of applications that I'm installing will accumulate and accumulate until I need to uninstall a number of applications so I can once again find the useful applications that I use on an everyday basis.
But folders often eliminate this problem for some, as you can have folders like "Work", "Leisure", "Gaming", etc. and some devices and operating systems allow for subfolders within these folders to be created in order to make your device seem more organized, allowing you to once again allow the number of applications you have installed to steadily rise, often without you noticing or thinking that this is an issue.
So my question is: Can you ever have too many applications, and if so, how many do you think is too many?
Yes, you can have too many apps in my opinion. There are only so many applications you can possibly ever need or use, and having more than you can use is pointless.
How many is too many is subjective, as it depends upon what you use on each device and how many applications you need to be able to do what you want. I tend to find I never need more than 25/30 applications on a frequent basis.
I don't understand why people insist on keeping every application they insall, even if they have never used some of them. All it does is waste space, get in the way, and usually cause a performance hit.
I also think having too many applications available is a possibility, especially on mobile devices. Apple, for example, are now boasting 200,000 applications for an iPad. But I fail to understand why so many are needed - plus, there's the fact that 190,000 of those are either completely useless, completely pointless, or mini apps that developers have used to try new things or train themselves on and have just been put on the app store for the sake of it.
The android store had 50,000 apps the last time I heard a number banded around, and I don't know of anyone who hasn't found an app they need or want...

The only limit is your resources.

For a CPU, 2 GHz is good for general usage.
A faster bus speed can make your computer faster
