HTC Incredible :: Home Screens Changing On Its Own
Jul 29, 2010
I really like my Droid Incredible (Dinc), but I just noticed a minor glitch on it. When I was on the main home screen, the phone switched over to all three of the left home screens on its own (it switched to these home screens one after another). Do you know if there will be a software update that will fix this problem?
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.
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.
Anyone know how to rearrange the home screen order? Let's say I have the friends stream widget on the second home screen to the right of the main screen. I want to move it all the way to the outer most right home screen. (3 swipes to the right) Anyway to do this?
I am trying to create an app for android 1.5 which would be organized around 4-5 'screen's that will be changing in a given order.
So I start ma app with the first screen, which it's background and a button. When I click on the button a new screen appears with a different background and different options which lead to next screens. Sth. that is usually seen in games. The problem is that I need to pass a lot of data between those 'screens' like and array with recorded sound. My idea was to create a separate xml layout file for each screen and change the context in the activity class so ie:
A simple test app for 3 screens works this way but my I don't really like this approach and it seems to be inappropriate.
Is this the correct way of organizing such an app in android or should I take another approach - if I should, please give a more detailed advice on how to do this.
How do you change the Huawei Ascend M860 splash screens the white Huawei splash and the blue Droid man splash both display before my boot animation which is the boot animation I extracted from my PlayfulMod 2.2.2 and applied to my CyanogenMod. 2.3.5.
I just picked up a new g1 and am loving it. Just one question. Is there an application out there that gives you more then just your 3 home screens? I wouldn't mind at least 5. Tried searching around and haven't found much.
I have now got my home screens as I want them but it is so easy to accidentally change them. Is there a way to lock them i.e. keep them as they are, but of course still updating to show the latest data , until I use a certain method to change the way they look.
I am wondering if anybody has found enough apps/widgets to fill all 5 screens? I can't seem to be able to find enough things to yet. Would the performance be hindered any if I was able to do so?woulld it just kill the battery too?
I was under the impression that 2.1 added more home screens (up to 5).Is that part of a rooted update, or is it only available in other apps? Open home keeps crashing, and I'd like to go with the main home screen app.
I've had my HTC Desire for a few weeks now and I love it to bits! I just want to ask though how other people set up their home screens (I'm seriously lacking imagination) I'd like to know of what widgets & apps are must hav's!Also, I have dedicated my far left screen as a 'car' screen which i've got a music widget on and google navigation icon... I'm after some other really good apps to use while being out in the car and while travelling around the country, any suggestions?One more thing, I'm after a car cradle to use the navigation, but the speaker on the phone is really quiet... is there a satnav with a speaker built in, or can you get cigarette lighter powered bluetooth speakers? I only want to be able to hear what the phone's satnavs saying really.
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.
I have my screens all set up using launcher pro, I want to change a few things around or just start from scratch. Is there way to save my screens and then start from scratch? Or do I need to save it then remove all my widgets and start again that way? I want to be able to go back to it if I don't like what I come up with.
Droid did it only with the keyboard slid out. Most other smartphones I'm familiar with do it too.Am I missing some setting or does Android just not do it for some bizarre reason? I've seen home++, not quite what I'm looking for.
I thought I'd start a thread discussing the different launchers people use on their Desire's.I personally think that HTC Sense's 'leap' view and HTC widgets are irreplaceable. However, if I ever feel like a change, I'd most likely give ADW a go.What launcher do you use on your Desire?
