    I've noticed that a lot of people talk about the home screens and needing more than the three stock ones, I'm just curious what is everyone putting on all these screens? I'm having trouble filling up the three i have stock lol and I plan on rooting and I'm gonna have more screens plus I'm running helix 2 already so hearing what everyone has might help me fill up mine

    I've often been curious about that as well. Granted, I don't use my phone as the be-all and end-all of my existence, but I don't even have one screen filled 50%.

    well, it all depends on your personal style, some people like to organize their apps by type, such as games, tools, fun/showoff apps. some people put widgets on there. such as facebook, weather bug, beautiful widgets.

    I like to have 7 screens because I like things to be clean looking and I like to donate each screen for a specific purpose

    I use BB and use all 5 screens.

    Between the shortcuts and the widgets (Pandora, Touchdown, Weather, etc) I have a really nice and functional phone.

    I try to organize screens by type.

    Center one has clock and commonly used apps and quick utility widgets like sound on/off
    Left has all my games.
    Right one is all music/pandora and music type apps like lyrics, guitar tuner, etc...
    Far right is unused, usually use it to experiment with new widgets.
    Far left is some less used widgets like stock power/sound/bluetooth/etc widget and some other crap.

    You know how you can swipe left and right to access three different screens, or areas to place widgets/icons? Some people use "home replacement" apps like Helix or Home++ that allow you to have 5 or 7 or maybe more of these screens. So he's asking what we fill them up with.
