    For us OCD/s, is there a home screen that has an odd number of icons in each row? It would allow symmetric spacing of icons. 4 icons across means an odd number in that row is unbalanced....
    :eek:

    ADW.Launcher as well. I use both ADW and LauncherPro Plus. If they were combined into one home app, then I'd be stoked.

    Do those require you to be rooted?

    Found a setting that allows 5 icon rows (top to bottom of screen). I'm looking for 5 icon columns (left to right on screen)

    Folder Organizer has widgets which will allow 5 icons across.

    Check out Launch-X Pro. It works with any Home, and you can use it to set up you apps up to 7 across the screen (I use 5 because that's a nice size to still be able to see clearly).

    Launch-X Pro - Android app on AppBrain

    I am not an idiot. But am feeling like one. I'm currently using launcher pro/folder organizer and have tried adw:

    • Cannot find a setting for column choice in launcher pro
    • Cannot find a folder organizer widget for same
    • adw: Set 5 columns, but can't find dock preferences. The dock is one of my favorite functions of launcerpro.
    Help with any of these issues would accomplish what I'd like. Ideally, the folder organizer widget (I've got launcher pro all set up with folder organizer the way I like EXCEPT for the column issue).

    While I wait for help, I'm working on it over here.....

    Thnx

    Launcher Pro doesn't let you set columns, just rows.

    • I have Folder Organizer paid version and I can add Widgets of 3 sizes and while adding them you can set options to have 5 icons per row, hide icon names etc.
