    I just installed LauncherPro and I set it up with 7 screens. However I'm so set in my set up of late, I'm having trouble figuring out what to populate my screens with. So I have my last screen and don't know what I want and I thought I'd look to all of you for what's cool, what's hot, what's the have-to-have.

    I'm looking for something that looks cool and goes with most of the LWPs and is also useful. You can see my sig for the stuff I already use and add picture frame to that as well. No twitter, news feeds, or market (stock market) stuff.

    So show me what I haven't seen yet. You're all the source of my droid knowledge so far.... expand it.

    I've been using launcherpro for about a week now, previously was just using the stock launcher with 3 screens. I'm an old guy with this being my first smartphone so it's all pretty impressive to me anyway. But I digress.... my point is, I can't fill 5 screens, let alone 7!! I find myself filling one screen with nothing but bookmarks to frequently used websites. I realize this is probably of no help, but it's all I got!

    This certainly isn't going to help you... I'm using Smart Shortcuts for the bottom 4 links. One button is my communication apps (every single one!), one is my productivity apps, and one is my utility apps.

    I have trouble finding things to fill up even 3 screens now o_O

    You're right, but a very unique idea.

    I never use more than one screen... and that's with beautiful widgets smaller taking up the top row.

    I find that I prioritize my icons to the most used and downward. The default screen has the most used and the screens outward have shortcuts relating to amount of usage.

    Don't know if that has any relevance but...

    I can't keep a single rom loaded long enough to really set up any screen. I find myself changing roms just for the heck of it every other day. I can't stop, it's like a drug. I need to go to a droid anonymous meeting.

    I would second what nooter suggested about a page filled with bookmarks to websites.

    BTW, how long is your battery life with that setup? I don't use more than a power strip and a 1 x 1 task killer for widgets and still struggle with juice. I can only imagine what you go through....am I right?

    i can only give you a suggestion

    if your mom and Phil take me to Hawaii with them.


    Actually I did the 7 screens deal, than switched to pandahome and have 3 screens for widgets and calendar and 6 tabs for shortcuts. The tabs are much more organized imho.
