    The home button does absolutely nothing for me. Doesn't matter if I short press or long press it, it doesn't do a thing. It's getting very frustrating having to manually back out of all my apps. Any suggestions?

    Do you have a different launcher? I dont have ICS yet....but I tested out some launchers on GB recently and my home button got screwed up one time. If your home button isnt working...something's definitely wrong.

    App groups are put together from the app drawer(click the all apps button top/left once you open your app drawer).This can help you organize your app drawer by putting related things in a common location. Once created a shortcut can be sent to a homescreen and the group can be easily accessed. Folders are created by dragging apps on top of each other which are already on a home screen. Both function similarly from the homescreen. On the left is an app group shortcut, on the right is a folder.

    When clicking the App group shortcut you're taken to the app group list in the app drawer.

    When clicking a folder the icon expands to show the apps in the folder and you stay on the homescreen.

    I never saw apps groups in GB, but doesn't mean they weren't available.

    This was there on Blur with GB...and was of my fav things about the Blur GB update starting with the Droid X1. Nice to see Moto kept it. Nice thread yall got going on here.

Dolphin has a "bookmarks widget" but it takes up way too much room on a screen, I would prefer the one icon. It's no longer in widgets, and I use Desktop Visualizer too, but it's not an option in there either. Anyone have any suggestions?
    Open the native browser and go to the bookmarks page. Long press the bookmark you want to set a shortcut for. Select add shortcut to home. Or, select edit bookmark, and tap the field next "add to"(it'll say bookmarks). Select homescreen and click OK.

    HA!! Thanks for that. I had the native browser frozen in Titanium Backup because I use the Dolphin Browser. I defrosted it, and had bookmarks again. However, I use "Desktop Visualizer" for creating custom shortcuts on home screens. I created a shortcut, with the Dolphin icon, and selected that bookmark from the native browser. Then when I tapped to open, it gave me the option of completing the action using the native browser or Dolphin browser, and I tapped 'remember this choice" so now it does it in the Dolphin browser that I like so much better. Awesome! Thank you!
    So MattyP how do you get all the ladies??

    If anyone has any tips and tricks for clearing out the frequently called list please let me know. I had an app that worked in GB but now for some reason they don't want us to be able to clear out the frequently called.

    It is possible to take a screenshot of the home screen. I've taken a screenshot of each of my screens, the home screen has my Favorite Contacts list at the top:
