Android :: Moving Icons On Home Screen Or Between Screens?

Dec 28, 2009

is there a way to move the icons without having to remove them and then pick a new place? If not - why with the nice slide functionality, can you not just slide them around on the same screen or the the next?

Motorola Droid :: Moving Icons On Home Screen

Nov 16, 2009

Has anyone else noticed their icons moving around [by themselves] on the home screen? A couple of days ago, the "Phone" icon suddenly appears on the left-most home screen rather than on the center one. Today, I discovered that I had 2 Gmail icons on my home screen. I thought that it was my imagination, but this has happened a couple of other times.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Moving Icons Between Different Screens In Application Menu

Aug 24, 2010

How do you move an icon in application menu from one screen to another? I know I can rearrange icons by clicking menu button then edit, but I can't move an icon from one screen to another. The same goes in application menu and in home menu.

HTC EVO 4G :: Get My Icons And Home Screens Back?

Nov 19, 2010

I cannot see any of my screens. I just see a black screen. The screen has no background but it is black but lit up or active [not black like when it is off though]. No response to hitting any of the 4 buttons[home,menu,return, search]. I only get a response when I hold down the home key. A message pops up saying 'Recent Apps' and 'No recent apps'. I'm wondering if it is trying to respond but bogged down with an app.

This all started after I installed a Koi screen saver. The screen saver works and lets me close the screen saver but goes to a blank screen. Don't see anything. Sound rocker responds, power button works, I even heard mail arriving. Feel pretty dumb.

General :: How To Gather Apps On Home Screens With Custom Icons

Aug 6, 2013

I'm a bit into customizing my home screens to make it look like the ones on mycolorscreen.com and in those UCCW threads.

But there is one thing thats bugging me, and that is the use of app icons on the home screen. I dont like it, its too messy and too iOS'ish.

Some are replacing the app icons with other custom icons, or removes them completely, but i rarely see what i've been trying to do; to make custom icons that open a meny of apps (in one genre..)

Like one icon for music apps, and one for travel apps etc.

I have tried to fix this using tasker widgets, like this:

and when i click on the music icon, which is a tasker widget, it opens a tasker scene with a meny of 4 music apps:

This works pretty good, but i would like the tasker widget icons to be just icons, no subtext under the icon. There is no way in tasker to do this i think, i've tried to make a task with no name but it is simply not allowed.

I've also tried to make a uccw widget, but hotspots in uccw can open apps and shortcut, not a many of apps..

i know that i can make the launcher remove text under icons, but this doen not apply to my tasker widgets.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Move / Delete Application Icons From Home Screens?

Apr 15, 2010

I know how to remove widgets... you long press on them to move them/delete them. My problem is this: I don't know how to remove regular icons on the Hero. On the Moment, everything was simply long press to remove. On this, long pressing the application icons on my home screen(s) just opens the associated programs. I kind of wanted to move them around, I don't wanna have to delete a scene everytime I want to move one icon around.

In short: How do you move/delete application icons from the home screens? (long pressing doesn't work for me)

Android :: BetterCut - Apps Organizer - FolderOrganizer - Changing Icons On Home Screens

Jun 14, 2010

I am wanting to change the icons for a lot of my apps on my home screens. I have been looking at BetterCut, Apps Organizer, and Folder Organizer. Now Apps Organizer is free and Folder Organizer has a free trial version, but Better cut is not free not does BetterCut have a free trial version.

Please tell me what you like/dislike about the apps, primarily BetterCut and Folder Organizer (paid).

*How do they run?

*Are there any major bugs?

Is it easy to change the icons for apps on my home screens?

*Is BetterCut really worth $2?

*Is Folder Organizer really worth $1.35?

Are any of these going to meet my needs of wanting to change the icons on my home screens?

*Are the icons dependant on the app that changed them (in other words, if I uninstall BetterCut after changing an icon, will the icon still be what I changed it to, or will it go back to the default icon)?

*If you had $2 and could only choose one of these apps to change the icons on your home screen, which would you choose?

I am going to play around with the two free versions of these apps and see if I like them, but unfortunately, BetterCut is an all or nothing app. I just don't want to feel like I wasted any money because the app ended up not doing what I wanted it to do.

HTC Incredible :: Reduce Number Of Home Screens Remember Last Home Screen

Jul 7, 2010

Two things I'd like to be able to do with my incredible.First is reduce the number of homescreens. Seven is really pointless for me, it makes finding the right screen take a little longer and there's just not enough good quality widgets that I need to use. I could do better with 5 and possibly just 3.Second is that when I'm not on a homescreen and I hit the home button, I'd like it to go back to the LAST homescreen I was on, not the center one. And if I'm already on a homescreen, once again pull up the homescreen select menu, instead of going to the center homescreen. It's a waste of a button press to always go to that center screen when pressing the home button.

Android :: Using Any App And Press Home Button Home Screen Blacks Out - 10 Sec Delay Get All Icons Back

Mar 30, 2010

Whenever I am using any app and press the home button, the home screen blacks out for a few secs and it takes around 10 sec to get all the icons back and before I can start using my phone again. I am using a non rooted mytouch 3g.

This problem does not happen if I exit an app by pressing the back button. It becomes very annoying at times.

Motorola Droid : Home Screen OCD - How The Screens Are Set Up

Nov 7, 2009

Most of my time with my new precious has been obsessing over how to arrange my screens.

Why the flip do the widgets lock into such ridiculous places!? Sometimes you could fit a whole other line of regular icons in the space that they leave!

So my question: Do any of you have OCD about how the screens are set up, and how do you set it up to work?

Android :: Multiple Screens In One Activity Like Home Screen?

Oct 9, 2009

I am working on an application where I wish to have multiple screens (each of full display size) attached to each other horizontally, and switch between them by using the finger (swipe right / swipe left). The home screen does exactly what I want, but its implementation seems to be more complex than I thought. What would be your preferred way to achieve this functionality? Is there any Layout or View that I could reuse? More generally, it should work with the 1.5 SDK, so the gesture interface is not available.

I'll give an example.Does the phone icon need some type of code behind it to tell it what to do or is it simply just an image?I only know about design and a little html.zo don't know anything about app coding.

Motorola Droid : Icons On Home Screen Lag With 2.2

Aug 14, 2010

Tried to search but couldnt find anything on this.

Here is what is happening with my Droid. I have the official release on my Droid and when I leave and app (Like Dolphin or Handcent) my icons on my home screens take 5-10 secs to refresh and it can take another 5 seconds before my home screen will react to any touches.

Also when I unlock my phone it can take close to 20 secs sometimes (not all the time) for my icons to come in and it takes at least 5 secs no matter what to get my screen to react to any touches.

Is anyone else having this issue? What can I do? Now I almost wish I had never updgraded to 2.2.....

General :: Missing Icons On Home Screen?

Apr 18, 2012

Those of you who have root access in there devices may have noticed icons missing on there home screens. If you are wondering why this is due to using Titanium Backup to move apps to the SD card. This only happens with certain apps, usually only the ones that can't be moved from the devices settings. To fix this simply move said apps back to internal storage and all will be well.
