I don’t like to scroll. As a consequence of this, I have set up categories on my PDA to loosely group the applications I use. However, if I put all of my applications in a category, even those that are not used and cannot be uninstalled (RealPlayer, for example), I end up with too many categories.
I leave the applications that I do not use or that are mapped to a hardware button in the Unfiled category. As I tap the Home button, it cycles through the categories, but skips Unfiled. I never have to see those applications again.
