    I'm curious to see how people layout their apps and widget on their home screens and how they have the phone customized! Saying as I'm very indecisive on how to best layout my home screens for ease of use I could use some inspiration!

    If you don't know how to take a screenshot, check here:

    There's no way to take a screenshot from your device like the iPhone (lock + home button)? Damn. That walkthrough looks too long and complicated.

    Not complicated at all. Download the drivers, click a setting on your phone, install Java dev kit, download Google code, open the UI for said code, go to the screen you want a photo of on your phone, click a button on the UI.

    The instructions are purposefully wordy I think just to make sure you know exactly what you are doing, but it just looks a little daunting. Steps include "click the next button" and "check to see if you want to agree to sending data to google, it's up to you" (clearly not direct quotes). Really, the steps are very simple don't worry :)

    Uhhhhhm... when I do something with them? :D They're about as bland and boring as you can imagine :)

    Would love to see other people's efforts though so I can steal ideas. I can't even organise my app icons into similar screens, though I have managed to make one my game screen..

    Oh I understand, don't worry about it.

    I do like that widget though. I have the first version but I wonder if I can save it to my card and download the newer one.

    Cool! What's the name of that clock widget?

    Joking! :D But I was about to ask that same question before I read your replies :). Thankfully I DO read replies.. ;)


    @JSchu22: Nice upload anyway, it really is amazing how good quality video you watch on the N1.. I just can't fathom it's "just a phone"... :)

    anyone know of a screen wide, but only 1 app tall weather widget? the Weather Channel and Weather Bug Widgets suck... Looking for a 5 day weather widget that spans across the entire screen, but only take up 1 row worth of height... hope that makes sense...

    I've seen a couple but they all require root access. Enjoy searching apps for "screenshot", you'll be bombarded with stupid themes.

    Home++ is a home replacement that lets you take screenshots from the phone.
