Results: do you use folders to store your apps? How many?

So many apps! Our phones are capable of so much and developers are constantly putting out new software that either does things differently, or does something radically new. Of course we want to have them all on our phones! But it does get crowded...

Now, some phones don't have the benefit of an app drawer (yeah, looking at you, iPhone, but also some black sheep Androids), and all of those apps splurge across a multitude of homescreens. Even if you have an app drawer, you might feel better to have most of them on a homescreen anyway.

We thought we'd ask you how you go about organizing your homescreen pages. Do you use the nifty folder feature to keep your apps neatly organized and your homescreen count low? Do you only have one or two folders for the more specific apps (like games and image editors) and let the rest of the icons fill as much space as they want? Or do you just let the apps fall where they may and not care about the chaotic appearance of your homescreens? Here's how that poll went:
