HTC Hero :: GDE Replacement Home Screens And Widgets
Dec 12, 2009
I have installed GDE the replacement home screens. However when i try to add widgets the only options i have are the installed widgets and no where can i add the HTC widgets....am i missing something or is this a bug in the application.
How do you delete the widgets/shortcuts on the seven home screens. I accidentally put something on the same home screen twice and want to delete one of them. And how do you order them how you want them to be?
Then, how do I sync my iTunes library to the phone?
I'm looking for an app that allows me to have more than 5 screens on my nexus one. Currently I have home++ but it doesn't allow for live wallpapers and the app selection is really outdated looking imo. I tried launcher++ but it too had the app selection ugliness.
What i really want is a home replacement that mimics the normal launcher on 2.1 but has extra screens. I don't need anything fancy, i just want more screens and perhaps an infinity scroll feature. is there anything like that? even a custom rom maybe? does cyanogen offer more screens?
OK so I've had this LG L70..So the stock launcher is OK but no wear near better them sum or these aftermarket launchers... Next launcher in general. Well after downloading next Launcher I tried to set up my home screens with the same widgets I had on the stock launcher with no luck. It tells me there is a problem with the widgets tap to reload. When I tap they disappear.
I just starting trying out other home replacement apps. Sence seems to be the best. I would like to try home++. I think its only for 1.6 because I can't find it in the market. What are you thoughts on home replacements for the Sprint Hero.
Ive searched but I cant find it...I was using Sense UI and Slide Screen as my home replacements but i clicked on that thing that makes slide screen my main one and i cant switch from slidescreen to sense now. how do i go back to sense without removing slidescreen
I've found this great home replacement app called launcherpro that is wayyy faster and smoother than the sense home. I currently have this set as my default home, so I just pull up taskiller to kill off sense and free up some memory. Even though I kill sense off with taskiller I see that sense has started back up every once and awhile and was wondering both why it starts back up and whether there is a way to stop it from doing so? Also, will killing sense like this lead to any problems down the road?
I sent a text to my sister that said ?and ever since, every time i return to 1 of the home screens from any application, mail, etc, comes up at the bottom of the screen in black, then eventually fades away. What I assume it has something to do with the text i sent, it can't be just a coincidence that it's 4 ? marks too. Never seen anything like it on this phone, had it for about 4 months.
I installed the application tripping II. I think its called and I applied it and it has made my phone only have 3 home screens and I thought deleting the app would sort it but it hasn't what could I do to make my phone go back to how it should be?
Is there anyway to rename a shortcut on any of the Scenes? i.e., I have the built in "Voice Dialer" on my main home screen and its listed as "Voice Dial..." which for some reason is bugging the crap out of me.
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)
Just a quick question about the home screens on the HTC Hero.
If I remember correctly, standard Android will only let you have 3 home screens (5 with the 2.1 update). However, HTC have worked their magic to enable 7 home screens with the Hero.
I just wanted to know if it's possible to limit my number of home screens to 3? I only use 3 so it seems like a waste of resources to have another 4 home screens running. It seems logical that these extra screens will still be utilising system resources, even if they aren't used.
But hey, maybe I'm wrong with the whole resources thing, but it would be good to know either way.
Remove widgets from the home screen? I searched this forum and didn't see anything on it. I am a new owner and new to this forum and I LOVE my phone. But it has shown me that I am not nearly as tech savy as I liked to think I was. I am a little overwhelmed with this phone.
When using a home replacment like Helix, Home++, etc. does the android home still run in the background and reduce performance? I had a lot of stuff on my stock home but just switched to Helix so how do i stop/disable stock home if it is running?
I have been working on a replacement for the stock Car Home app for a bit, and I am completely stumped on how to override the Home button so that my app will be brought back to the foreground whenever the phone is docked. This is the way that Car Home works, so there must be a way. It seems that BroadcastReceivers won't work, because the intent that is broadcast whenever the Home button is pressed will still cause the default homescreen app to launch; I cannot prevent it. I can override the Home button from within my app, but that does me no good since this needs to work when the user is outside my app. Car Home also does not do anything weird like set itself as the default homescreen app while it's running (I checked the logcat to make sure). I've been really beating my head against the wall on this. Does anyone have any ideas, or can you at least point me in the right direction?
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.
Just downloaded this from the android market...new app is great...great interface...Has reflective type menu on the bottom that you can slde across to view different shortcuts, cannot customize menu yet but im sure it will be available in next update.
Mods please feel free to move this if it's not in the right section. I'm running skyraider 3.0 rc2 vanilla and love it so far. There are only a couple of things that I miss from stock sense. The one that I am after is a bookmark widget. I can't find any on the market. This got me thinking about widgets in general. There should be a list of widgets somewhere for people going to vanilla Roms. Is there such a list anywhere? We need one similar to the rooted apps thread. Just a thought. And if someone has any thoughts on a bookmark widget, that would be awesome. Or would the stock one work and where can I find it?
(before question shout out to how great home ++ is) ok so i've tried ish some home replacements before(and by tried i mean installed didnt like look or quite get it and uninstall(when i first got phone)). i started to youtube home++ became very intrested and installed it and love it so far! great alternative i think everyone should try it out! ok now to question this is my first time posting so hello all! now that i have home++ installed i notice that my original "home screen" is always running in the background,so is there a way to "deactivate"(for lack of better terminology). doesnt it take up cpu/gpu resources and then new home screen does also in turn draining battery or slowing phone down? if no way to deactivate should i goto original and turn off stuff like live wallpapers and also remove any widgets that update regularly so i dont have it running twice?
