    Does anyone know if it's possible to adjust the grid size for the icons on the home screen? It apparently holds 9 icons on that screen, but with just a little reduction, we could fit another row. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Doc

    This would be REALLLLY nice if we can do it, so much wasted space for needing just a little tweak.

    I agree, there should be room for more apps. Though, doesn't the homescreen allow 12, not 9? (I'm assuming that the OP just wasn't paying the most attention.)

    Because the screen has to rotate they seem to have made adjustments to the spacing on portrait ro accomodate that. It is kind of annoying though.

    <------ (see where it says Droid Newbie? Man is that the truth!)

    This is day 2 with my droid and the android os, so I too didn't realize that the Google widget could be removed. This does allow for an extra row, but to be honest, if we could adjust the grid size, just a little, we could have 4 rows AND the Google widget. Hell, we could remove the Google widget and get 5 rows then!

    Another newbie question: I have heard about Sherpa, and would like to try it, but can't find it in the app store. I went to the website, which emailed me a direct link to the appstore, and that failed too. Any idea what gives? Is it not available for droid, not in the us, or is it just not for me? ;-)

    Thanks,
    Doc

    OH i agree with you about the grid size.. was merely saying that removing the widget does help a little. I think there should be 5 rows not 4.

    Hi - Buddy from Geodelic here.

    Sherpa is currently exclusive to T-Mobile's Android phones. However, we will be releasing a Geodelic app that works on many OS's and carriers in the near future.
