    I am very OCD with my home screens on my phone. Is anyone else? Every page on my phone has a purpose? Is there any one else with this? haha;)

    I do something similar. Center screen is a sexy, slim down version where i can actually see my background and it fits in. Left is all my google apps, then further left is apps i mostly use. I never go to the right, therefore its looks horrible.

    so you suffer from Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear, or worry; by repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety; or by a combination of such obsessions and compulsions over your phone screens??

    Home screen is just a widget. To the right are my daily apps that get used a lot (calculator, camera, calendar, etc). The screen the the right of that is my entertainment page (music, score center, direct tv, tune in radio, YouTube, etc). Pretty much anything that uses data.

    Scrolling over to the left ifs my widget page (search bar, power control bar, auto rotate widget and power amp widget). To the left of that are all my games which right now I don't have any. All apps are in alphabetically order.

    Homescreen are main apps I am using, weather and clock widget, one page is a calendar widget (cozi), other page train time widget and one is system widgets (airplane mode / bluetooth tethering / setting alarm / mute etc.)

    Mmhmm me for sure. My home page is always the same. Big weather widget and 2 full rows of icons making sure I have my messengers, facebook, camera, stores, and gallery icons on it. And the dock is phone, contacts, messages, and Chrome. The right page will have my music widget on the very top and then two rows of icons on the bottom two rows. All other pages have two rows of icons or widgets on the very bottom rows leaving me the top half of the screen on the remaining pages so I can see my wallpaper =) I always have it that way and I took screenshots of all the pages and put them on my computer so if I ever factory reset then I will have the exact layout again.
