I was hoping that with the 2.3.3 upgrade there would be an increase in the number of screens as the five I have are almost full.
What has made it worse is that on the 2.1 version I had five rows with four apps on each row – i.e. 20 apps to a screen.
I now have only have four rows which means I have 16 apps to a screen.
The space where the delete box is seems to be bigger than on 2.1.
Does anyone know if the there is a way of putting in an extra row or do I need to download another launcher?
I use adw ex launcher and it allows up to 7 screens I use 5 and you can also change the setup I have a 5 by 5 grid with hidden names remember that the more homescreens you have it can sometimes affect performance

I like using ADW Launcher EX 220.127.116.11, It has lot's of nice features like the extra home screens, Gestures, Lock Desktop, Create Groups In App Drawer, Change Colors, Size, Fonts Of Icons and the list goes on. Another nice home launcher is the new SPB Shell 3D, it is chalked full of extras and a very nice home screen viewer. But each person has different tastes, I just installed each one until I found the ones I liked the most.

i used to have LauncherPro plus....it was perfect....very custom and all the screen i need....matched with a app that make you fit 4 shortcuts into a 1X1 square i could fit up to 80 apps into 1 screen (off course it was slow but cool)
now i have changed to something way more cool, pricey but really nice:
I downloaded the ADW. Launcher and having spent half an hour learning how to use it (playing about with launcher actions) I am very impressed. I increased the screens to seven, columns to four and rows to five and moved my 100 or so apps to their respective screens. Moving them was so easy and a being able to rename them makes the screens look much neater.
I downloaded the other apps and played with them as you suggested Crash 27, but will stay with ADW. Launcher.
Merolas and Crash 27 - SPB Shell 3D – thanks, but I do not have a credit card.
Beau 420 – thank you for the link. I have saved the link as there is some great stuff on it.
I am still surprised though that with 2.3 they have reduced the rows. Android might have been as well as ask the makers of ADW if they could use there launcher as the default.
For me, it was the opposite. I wanted fewer homescreens as I prefer the non-cluttered, clean looking setup. So i'm on the SE Arc Launcher, modded w/3 homescreens and green SE logo for my app drawer icon.
i use go launcher ex... u can use sooo many home screens.. waay more than 7!
I tried go launcher and have to say I liked it a lot.
However, I've now uninstalled it as it just killed my battery. I'd go to bed with more than 50% battery left, and wake up with just 1% left. I was finding that I needed to charge the phone every day, sometimes twice a day!!
I uninstalled it and fully charged the phone on Saturday. By this morning (Monday) I still had about 25% battery left, whereas I know that if i still had Go launcher on it, I would have had to recharge the phone on Sunday morning!
