    One scene here are well. I used the default scene, moved a few things around, added a few thing, took some off. Not sure if it will stay this way, but for now...

    I have 2 so far. One is my every day usage one and the other is what I use when I'm driving. The driving one has google maps, sprint nav, pandora, last.fm, widgets for the people I would most likely need to call, and a bluetooth switch.

    I might be able to put them on a different home screen but why bother? I have the option to use scenes so I am going to use them.

    I can see this as a good reason for using multi-scenes... My problem is that I work with a bunch of people who are equally or possibly MORE geeked-out than I am about phones... So everyone wants to see the cool stuff. I can't go hiding it in a "Fun" scene.

    If you haven't figured it out, I use only one scene. In fact, I have 3 completely blank pages in that one scene... But my Sense UI moves quick and is highly responsive.

    you know, that's funny you say that

    i have empty pages too!



    its like, we (the public) DEMAND sooo much performance/storage/batt life/etc... but in the end, do we really USE it??

    personally, i like knowing there's seven *possible* scenes, and i would be kinda ticked if they reduced it somehow (like in a patch or something - no, they wouldn't - i'm just sayin)





    anyway, i was just curious

    i was also wondering if anyone was using locale or something similar to change scenes based on their location

    Only one here. I haven't even used up all the screens on my one scene either. I've just started organizing each page for things and saving it as my own scene. Keep the things I use the most on the Home screen. Another screen is for settings (on/switches settings, market, etc), another for travel (SprintNav, Mileage, Layar, Wikipedia, etc) and another for games. Even those aren't all filled yet and that leaves 3 more screens for stuff.

    If I actually fill it enough to need another scene I think I'm probably using the phone too much. :)

    I have 2 custom Scenes. Fun and Work.

    I keep all my games and other distracting apps out of the work scene as they just tempt me to goof off.

    I too have quite a few blank pages on both scenes though.

    I have three scenes going. One for work, one for home/normal evenings, and one for evenings out. What I would like is a way to switch themes based on time and/or location. Maybe a Locale plugin or hell just built in functionality.

    Agreed 100% romeo, a app that changes your scene based on day of the week/time would be great or even a timer would, but switching manually isn't too lengthy of a process so I can't complain too much. And same here nathanotis, walking around campus texting on this thing the first day i got it was like feeding time for all the tech people at my school lol a professor even offered to trade me his iphone for it lol! I guess everyone's getting into the Hero :)

    I'm using my own custom scene currently..

    On the main page, I have the clock widget that has the weather on it, a folder for my most-used Apps, a folder for my most-used Games, and then at the bottom row I've got People, Browser, Camera, and Voicemail.

    One page to the right is my full-page email widget, then the next page to the right is the full-page messages widget, then the last page to the right is the full-page picture album widget.

    One page to the left of my home page is the People widget setup with all my most-used contacts, then the next page to the left has my half-page facebook widget on top and my half-page music widget on the bottom, then the last page to the left has my full-page bookmarks widget.

    I'm also using the FlyScreen replacement lock screen to display my text messages, calendar, and facebook updates. I emailed the FlyScreen team to see if they are going to be adding an email widget. I'd love to be able to see my emails on my lock screen. :)

    I'd say I'm using my Hero to it's full extent, lol.

    Locale looks awsome but, I to my understanding it a resource hog and IMO I don't think it's worth the battery drain. If it had no or little affect on battery life I would use it 110% of the time just for the heck of it.

    Me three, and I only use about 3 pages, I only few apps on the screen...

    And I'd rather have more than enough, than less than needed. Thats why I bought 1Tb external hardrive...so I would run out of space :D

    Why not try it out and see for yourself? It runs here constantly and barely dents the battery 'cos I rely mostly on cell fixes rather than GPS. That, and the time/power condition scheduling makes it really handy. It doesn't have the ability to change scenes though. Unless it's possible to create a shortcut to a particular scene? If so there's a plug-in for Locale that will run shortcuts when specific conditions are met.

    What would really please me is if apps regained the ability to enable/disable GPS. There's an app called Wiggle which does much the same thing as Locale but uses wi-fi APs to determine location. If these two could only interact.... :cool:

    Since I get NO lock on anything at all while at work I use the time based options and have location turned off. I can't speak to battery life because I have mine plugged in all day or in airplane mode. I work in a basement and am still working on getting the Sprint access point. Unfortunately I can't speak to battery life on much of anything because of this. However at home, on the weekends, my battery seems fine with locale running. If you use time based options I think the battery drain wouldn't be noticeable.

    I'm only using one.

    While I've seen most of Rob's HTC videos and there's a lot of hype about the scenes, I pretty much classify myself as being in the play scene 24/7. No need to switch into different personalities or become bi-polar and adjust the phone as such.

    I suppose I do have another scene in my life, but that's a scene I pretty much don't put on my phone. In fact, I usually have my phone turned off when in that scene.
