    Is there an app or addon or mod that can be installed that will condense the widgets in the app drawer?

    Basically, if there are 2, 10 or 15 widgets available for a given app, only one widget would show up in the app drawer to initially choose from OR one for a given widget size (1x1, 2x2, 3x4, etc) to initially choose from. The corresponding widget choices would have a number in parentheses to show the number of widgets available. Once chosen, the various choices would then be available.

    I've seen this in some ROMs I've used on the Thunderbolt or Droid 1. It is just some much neater, plus saves 30-60 seconds of scrolling through countless widgets.

    With all the Devs out there, I can't believe someone hasn't thought of this already.

    In apex, if you hold on the home screen which brings up the option to add widgets etc the widgets are in a list and condensed into just a single app and expanded when you click on it.

    EDIT: Should've properly read the three first Tadeo was in before me with the same thing I'm on about
