    Are you putting app buttons or a widget on your screen?

    While an app button will always be 1x1 in size, developers can write their widgets to any size all the way up to full screen. Many of the HTC widgets that come on the Aria (and most every Android phone) are full screen and other widgets come in multiple sizes for you to choose from.

    To add a widget to any of your homescreens, simply long-press any empty area until the Add to Home screen appears with the choice of Widget.Program/Shortcut/Folder. Choose Widget and you'll see your choices!
