1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I like to leave a 5th screen open for drag and drop rearranging of my home screens and testing out new widgets that I may or may not have room for on other screens until i cdecide to use them full time or not

    I loaded cyanogen last night, which looks like it uses HelixLauncher. It defaulted to 7 screens. I turned 2 of them off and still can't figure out what I need on the 5th one. I know what you mean.

    I use the 5th screen for direct dials. It's awesome! Much easier than searching through contacts.

    Mine is, from left to right:
    Reading Widgets (FML, MLIA, TFLN)
    Music (Guitar Tuner, bTunes)
    Beautiful widgets, home and nothing else (I like simple :))
    Games and Apps
    Mission Control (SetCPU, ROOT Explorer, AudioManager, Power Bar, Advanced Task Manager)

    Make it a hobby screen, I like music, so I devoted a whole screen to it. If you like sports, news, etc. :)
