    Remove Snap to Grid Home Screen Layout

    Anyone know of a way to remove the snap to grid format of the home screens? I know this is the way android operates natively but I'm curious if anyone has found a hack to allow the placement of widgets anywhere on a given screen.

    Droid is my first Android based phone and I have very few complaints other than the MASSIVE amount of wasted space caused by the snap to grid format. For example, add the Google Search widget and the Facebook widget on one home screen. The amount of wasted space is about 1/3 of that screen! Ridiculous. My last phone was the Windows Mobile Omnia and I hate to admit it but WinMo has much better screen layout capabilities with it's widgets. Other than that droid kicks it's butt

    Personally I'd like to root the droid to see what kind of interesting roms people cook up. I'm loving the full look of sense ui and I wouldn't mind having someone throw in the multitouch browser from the milestone.

    Hmm...wrong thread....but I stand by my statement none-the-less! Ha!
