    So I figure I'd throw this together to give people an idea of how my screens are set up, just to give people a ideas.

    Widgets/Apps worth mentioning:

    -Widget Locker
    -Tasla LED
    -To Do List
    -Agenda Widget

    I'll start off with my Unlock Screen. The App is called "Widget Locker" This is so much smoother than the stock unlocker that comes with the Droid Pro. Theres different unlock screens such as the HTC Sense Unlocker but the thing that has me sold with this is the ability to add additional sliders. You can have up to a total of 10 sliders on the screen, I only have 4, one to unlock the phone, one to put it onsilent, one for flash light and another for camera. Its just nifty and convinient to have these shortcut keys on your home screen.

    As with my Home Screen I tried to keep it simple. My most used aps will always be on my dock. I have Phone, Google Voice, and Contact search, Launcher Pro allows you to have up to 3 docks so by swiping to the left I have additional apps that I use frequent, along with the App Drawer.

    Swiping to my right is all my Multimeadia Screen, Music, etc.

    Next Screen, Directions, Navigation, Map related, etc.

    Next screen, Calendar..

    and Final Screen, Power Management, control panel screen.. pretty much anything related with Settings is all on this page..

    My home screens are nothing crazy of fancy but I feel like it's pretty simple, plus having that unlock screen helps a lot. Hope this helps somebody.

    Hey, thanks for posting, this looks really nice. on your Sliders . . .can you just have sliders? I use no lock as well and love just hitting keyboard to wake up the phone, but the sliders look cool if they don't actually lock anything.

    Well I just realized no locker doesn't work with Widget locker but im able to wake up the screen by hitting any button on the on the keyboard which will bring up the slide to unlock screen.

    You can pretty much put anything on the lock screen, whether it be widgets, shortcut keys or additional sliders.

    Oh, its called light grid pro.. its a live wall paper so the blocks in the background are constantly moving and fading, it gives you a lot of customization options. Really cool

    Cool. Thanks. How's the battery suck on that?

    My battery lasts maybe 6-7 hours of what I would call "light" usage. IM/Whatsapp a little bit of websurfing and virtually no chatting. Even with the display way down the display still takes like 70% of my battery usage so I'm a bit power sensitive here.

    Thanks for the post MO...always cool to get a look at other people's set ups...

    One question...the icon on the far left of your task/notification bar looks like a different received email icon....did you change your email icon or is that actually a different email app you're using?

    Sharp looking layout btw....thanks!
