    You can use a "home" replacment app ... ahome, panda home (free) and many others in the market.

    You can also put folders on your desktop and put apps in the folders. Then you can put games in a folder, shopping stuff in another and so on.

    I've been using PandaHome on my Droid for about a week now. Using 4 home screens plus 2 dockbars. I put my most frequently used bookmarks on 1 dockbar and my favorite contacts on the other. I dedicate 1 home screen to the 4x4 calwidget (what the calendar agenda should have looked like).

    So far I only have 2 issues, neither bad enough to make me uninstall it:


    1. It seems to crash/restart several times a day. It generally doesn't take it more than a couple of seconds to reappear and nothing seems to be lost, so I'm ok with this.
    2. It insists on alphabetically sorting the icons in the dockbars instead of allowing me to order them the way I want (like the home screens). I've emailed the developer an enhancement request to address this.

    I've been using an app called GDE that I got over in xda-developers. It is great. It has the dockbars, different swiping methods, and can have up to 7 screens. And it doesn't slow up my phone.

    Looking at home replacements (leaning towards pandahome). I have what might be a dumb question...If I install one of these apps, will it erase all of my current settings, i.e. current location of apps, widgets, etc? Or will it just replace the current home and allow me to add more?

    no... you will just have two homes running at the same time that you can go between by pressing the home button... unless you designate one of them as default... than you can clear that by going into the app settings...

    edit: the new home will be standard, and you will have to add all the shortcuts and widgets you want on the new home... but the original home will not be changed at all..

    I actually have ran into the same problem..main reason I bought the phone basically the only reason was because I was able to run my schools server on the phone after a few hours of testing I was all for android..but I am always limited on how many windows I can have open.

    Sprint Hero has seven home screens, and a 5 mp camera so I know there's a program in place. I have the my touch from tmobile and didn't even get a users guide with the phone. Sprint gave one with the hero. But I'm still loving the phone.:eek:

    LauncherPro. PandaHome, aHome et al are horrible and ugly imo.
