    I liked how on my LG Dare that I could drag icons onto the home screen and place them how I want (not locked to a grid). Not only could I arrange them however I wanted, I could also place as many as I could fit (almost). Is there a widget or app that allows me to place a "box" on the home screen to toss apps into. Right now I've found 'More Icons widget" but that only allows me to place 4 icons into the spot of 1, which makes them very tiny and arranges them in a square. Anything else out there?

    Sorry, but I don't think so. :(

    You'll notice that the Android builds for netbooks, and even that new iPad, all use the same fixed grid, but with simple additional spacing. It kinda sucks, but it's a fundamental limitation.

    I saw in one of the forums here or on AndroidCentral the other day a dev who made an app where when you open it it shows you a carousel of different applications that you have dropped into that spot. Basically a folder, but it appeared pretyt nice and you could spin the carousel to pick the one you wanted. I'll see if I can find it and post back.

    Edit: UltimateFaves is the app. Here is a link to a thread from the dev, it;s on page 3 I believe, posted on 11/24 @ 1020.

    I loved that about my Dare too, but I do not think I have seen an Android app that allows yu to do it.

    ADW Launcher makes it you do up to 64 icons on a page.
