    Get App organizer...trust me. I have only widgets on my homepages, and the folders that app organizer makes. Makes everything nice and neat, with 0 clutter. FootballRef, you could fit every app icon on your main homepage into one folder.

    Main screen has only Beautiful Widgets and the 4 buttons at the bottom for Launcher2.
    Left screen has SportsTap, Calender and power settings along with a few app icons.
    Right screen has my most used apps.
    Left2 and Right2 are empty by design.. I like having the extra space "just in case".
