    Generally the same shot, but different wallpaper. First shot is the home screen, second shot is the lockscreen.

    Hahaha, everyone else seems to be way more concerned about my GMail than I am :D

    That's from Folder Organizer which I really recommend. It's a replacement for the regular Android folders and has dozens of extra options for organizing them. One of the options for the folder icon (in addition to built in, icon, graphic) is 'Icon from Apps' (or something to that effect), where it builds the icon from the apps inside the folder.

    There's a pay (cheap, like $1.3x) and free, and both will do what you see (I do actually use the pay version, has some nice extra tweaks).

    I went ahead and scored locker widget, for $1.99 it's very slick. Love being able to check out thing locked or going from locked directly to an app!

    (Also picked up the XDA Premium for $0.99)

    I started a "paid app" thread before and it got bumped to general Android, but it's interesting to hear what people are actually buying.

    I have a slew of paid apps. The aforementioned Widgetlocker, Executive Assistant (also on my lockscreen), Beautiful Widgets (though these days I just use it for the sexy 'activity' forecast that I view via minimalistic text), AudioManager Pro, several of the PURE apps by Francois Deslandes, donate versions of several of my favorite apps (Plume, Alarm Clock Plus, Minimialistic Text, etc)...

    ...and oh yeah, Tasker. LOVE ME SOME TASKER.

    I've got a different wallpaper (again) ... but I'm not sure that's enough to warrant a new image post.

    yeah, chicknlil replied above with link to it. been using it a couple days now.

    After seeing chicknlil's screens, then perusing xda, I really want to come up with a nice theme, possibly even my own icons. I really like how some people got really creative with some of them. Since I've only had the phone a week, and this being my first 'droid, my screens look pretty messed up, as I've been trying out different ideas as I come across them.

    I have the clock and a few of the icons like chicknlil, my wallpaper was mostly Battlestar Galactica themed, with some of the basic android widgets. Messy. My next task is to find a way to replace the radio widgets. Tried using desktop visualizer but all I can get is the wifi settings page, not toggle it off/on.

    Sure it is! Unless there's an image quota of some sort, I'd say post up! :)

    Yep, pretty boring, and pretty much the same. We'll see how many days this wallpaper will last me...

    Hmm how are you guys getting the folders to show mini icons of the applications like it does on iOS? I have ADW EX btw.

    I was experiencing banding issues and display problems with motoblur widgets with LauncherPro. Sticking to blur for now. Using Launch-X Pro for the small icons at the bottom and circle battery widget to display the battery percent.

    I rather like mine, thanks to the widget suggestions from some of you folks. And the best part is I didn't spend a dime to get it this way :)

    After 15 minutes of installing the android SDK + associated dependencies, I managed to back up my apps AND get some screenshots.

    That looks like Executive Assistant - there is a free and paid version.
