    Hi all,
    I got my Eris only a few days after playing with an iPod for the first time. Besides the widgets feature, there is an aspect of the iPod interface that I like better than Android. I like how the "Home" of an iPod lists all of the installed apps, but you can move them to different pages to categorize them. With Android, I go through the market and add a bunch of apps, but then I have to go add each one to one of the Home pages.
    Does anyone know of a Home interface that auto-adds apps when they are downloaded?

    Thanks!

    Wish i could say there's an app for that. LOL! But all your apps are stored under the submenu unlike the iphone which has it's menu on the desktop. The whole concept behide creating your own shortcuts on your home screen was about customazation and not forcing you to look at an icon you don't need like the iphone. hope this clairifies the differance between the iphone homescreen and the android homescreen.

    I just thought it was more effective to have all of my apps presented and allow me to categorize them. For apps that I don't use, I would stick on the farthest page so I wouldn't see them...

    I am surprised that no one has a home app like this - there have to be iPhone converts that prefer that concept...

    I may have found a way to accomplish what I'm looking for. Panda Home has a feature that lets you hide icons that show up in the "all apps" window. Once I have put everything I use on their appropriate pages, I can hide ALL of the existing apps. This way, when I do pull up the "all apps" window, it will only show me new apps (the ones I haven't yet gone in and hidden). Once I put a new app on it's page, I can hide it.

    If anyone has a better suggestion, I'm interested to hear it. I would prefer to stay within Sense UI but it doesn't have the "hide" feature...
