    Right now I have about four pages of apps the other three are widgets...How do you guys have yours setup and does it save battery to just have all apps?

    I'm not sure about the battery concern regarding widgets, however, I would assume that any program within the phone that automatically updates through the internet and/or gps will require battery power.

    On my main screen, I keep general information that is not private - such as the calendar/clock widget. To the right, I keep my social networking and messaging widgets so I can check them in one screen without loading individual apps (I love this!).

    Third page to the right, I keep my gallery widget - so I have quick access to my pictures and videos.

    Along the bottom of those three pages, I keep my most frequently used apps.

    I haven't really filled up the others just yet ...

    Currently I'm using Launcher Pro, with only 3 screens, you can change it up to 7, 7 just seems too much to me. Some of those widgets use a little extra power, so right now I've got them down to a minimum.

    I have LauncherPro with 7 screens and the 5 icons down hack, and 2 docs. My screens are themed. For example:

    1. INFO: XXL Pure Calendar Widget and Weather Bug Elite
    2. TOOLS: calculator, barcode, UPS tracking...
    3. INTERNET: lots of browser shorcuts, gmail, reader, PhoneMyPC, andFTP...
    4. HOME: nothing on here but the Beautiful Widgets weather/clock (its the middle)
    5. MEDIA: music app, xiaa radoo, rock player, and so on...
    6. GAMES: sketch online, wordfeud, WordUp, Carrom3d...
    7. DROID: just droid stuff like power widget, root explorer, voice...

    Dock1 has phone, launcher, messaging, and dots and the Dock2 has quick links to people I text often. And some photos on screen cause I love memories.

    LauncherPro let me cut down to 4 screens ;) 4x5 and 5 across the bottom scrollable for all commonly used apps.

    7 is nice but just too many for my tastes. My wife is an old iPhone user and does not even like the screens (yet). Too funny.

    Perferences/Home Screen Settings/5

    I use three screens. The middle is my home and I have Beautiful Widgets Home (Weather and Time), Power Control Widget and other apps I use daily. On the left screen I have Direct Dial Icons for all the people I call on a daily basis. On the right most screen I have all the other apps I frequently use. I simply open the app drawer for anything else. I use no widgets on any screen other than the home screen.

    I've moved everything off the 6 non-main screens and I only use the main screen.
    I have the weather on top, the 4 widgets to toggle the wi-fi, bluetooth, gps, and airplane on and off.
    Under that I have navigation, google talk, text messaging, local news, browser, maps, and Pandora apps.
    That's it.

    I've been getting closer and closer to this philosophy by the day. I mean the app drawer is fast and easy to use. It's easier than swiping to a new screen page. I may soon be down to two screens - one main with my two widgets and apps I use frequently and one with my direct dial icons. Use the app drawer for everything else.
