    Sorry if this is already well know.

    If you hold down the app drawer icon on the home page for a second until it turns color and swipe from left to right, a small app dock appears on the bottom of the screen. You can drag and drop 5 shortcuts and it will show up on every home screen. To get back to the app drawer just swipe again. Cleared up a decent amount of space for me.

    Just make sure to hold the app drawer icon down for a second so it changes color before swiping. Mine turns orange. The tray is for quarter size icons so it is small.

    For those saying nope: make sure you're trying this with dxtop and not the stock android home app. It is a documented feature of dxtop and is quite nice if you have it installed. Personally I couldn't get used to the way you changed desktop swiping and ended up uninstalling, but other than that, it's a nice home alternative.

    It was posted in the title of this thread.

    I would say that is the best part about the app.

    still a good post and yes, you can add up to five, it's definitely a space saver, and time saver since my top five apps (phone and text being two of my top) are on every screen

    ok here another just found in dxtop..... hold on any screen icon for a sec then let go and window pops up with options, locate on market, info and you can rename and change icon (even use a reg pic) for the icon now
    used all the "home apps" and they all have diff nice things about them, 1st time trying dxtop and so far its pretty cool in its own ways, like the diff direction swiping for screens too
