    I was thinking that when the time comes for me to get a new phone, it'd have to be an HTC with sense because I love all the little extra bits you get with it. For one thing I use all 7 of the homescreens.

    I was just wondering what y'all have on yours?

    On my main screen I've got: Camera (shortcut),
    HTC clock widget,
    Bonsai blast (shortcut)
    Pic say pro (shortcut)
    Googlemail (shortcut)
    Chomp sms (shortcut)
    Tasks (shortcut)
    Bible (shortcut)
    People (shortcut)
    Weather widget

    Then:

    Left1: Peep widget (large)
    Left2: Calendar widget (large)
    Left3: Albums widget

    Right1: Jewellust, Facebook, BBC news,wordpress, Cardio trainer, Listen, Netcounter, Market, NOte everything and GKCD shortcuts, and ringer toggle, wi-fi switch, live book marks and audio manager widgets.

    Right2:HCT people widget (large. New version)
    Right3: Large mixzing widget (large)

    Just curious, I'm always on the lookout for good widgets. :D

    I just use 3 to be honest (another reason why I'd love stock Android on the phone).

    On th emain screen I have a large clock, then the main phoen functions as 4 icons: Contacts, Messages, Mail and Market

    Left of that I have the weather, the four toggle swtiches for data, bluetooth, wifi and GPS and a small HTC calendar widget

    On the right I have a large bookmarks tab. Everfything else I just use the apps link at the bottom

    Yup.

    1 (far left): weather widget
    2: bookmarks widget (text list)
    3: mostly empty, just some apps organiser shortcuts
    4 (middle): flip clock, calendar widget, messages/mail/ak notepad/people
    5: favourite contacts widget, camera/clock/camcorder/music albums/facebook/twidroid/browser
    6: mostly apps - e.g. google maps, gps status, wifi analyzer, copilot, picsay pro, etc
    7 (far right): config & setup stuff - e.g. mobile data/wifi/gps/bluetooth widgets, market, app manager, atrackdog, taskpanel x

    It was all getting a bit crowded, but then i discovered apps organiser.

    Well I luv my 7 screens especially as I have different home screen piccies for each screen :D just slide from one to the other to look at them...I know how sad...oh of course for another reason as well to use my many Apps and Widgets sprawled all over them. Trouble is I keep changing my mind what Apps to put where so I have to keep play hunting the App lol

    I think it's part of a one of the new HTC updates. I got it when I installed modaco 2.9.

    I have one page full of folders set up as categories. I just put all my apps in those, never use the menu screen anymore.

    The people widget you are using isn't standard, in that it is full screen. Mine just scrolls downwards & takes up half the screen width.

    I think it was updated in an HTC update. So if you haven't downloaded that, you won't have it.

    Iirc the "new" People widget was pulled from a later Asian 2.73.xxx.x release and included in the MCR.
