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 don't know if this is like a default option but i've found thet my X's entire OS goes into landscape mode, including app tray, browser, apps, everything. I haven't downloaded any apps that do this and while its in this mode it wont rotate back to portrait. The only way I could change it back is by rebooting. I haven't found a way to voluntarily recreate this, it just happens, maybe by a certain combination of keys,but I'd like to know how to recreate this. I'm sure its probably really obvious so forgive me for my obliviousness
I am looking for Something that will just allow the home screen to go into landscape when tilted w/o having to load a completely new launcher/home screen app. Is there any stand alone app that will do this?
I found a easy way for you non-rooted/non-Home++ to capture your screens. Download the Steamy Window app. Run it and close it right away. Go to the screen you want to print. Press and hold the Home key. Run Steamy Window. Wipe away all the steam. Hit the menu button and save the image. It seems like a lot of steps, but it is pretty quick and easy. The only thing the pic won't capture is the notification bar.
Today I updated to the latest cyanogenmod and like I always do I restore all of my apps with Titanium. However, when I restored helix, none of my apps were restored to their appropriate home screen like it normally is. It's a pain to drag them all one by one again to where I want them. Am I missing something, or is there an app out there that will remember them next time?
On Saturday evening, I went to look up a score and found my Droid's homescreens wiped clean. I mean nothing was there. Folders, shortcuts, widgets, all gone. Nothing but my background. I thought I hit some reset or a magic delete function. After a few minutes of befuddlement, I cycled the power. Lo and behold, everything was back. Now, I'm very patient with glitches, so I didn't really think anything about it. Until this morning, when buddy texts me having the same exact problem. I advised him to reboot. Screens came back So I'm not hearing anything about update pushes, so I've gotta ask if anyone else saw this bizarre behavior in the past 24 hours.
I've been adding and changing things constantly on my Droid X since I got it, as I know most of you have. I thought I'd make this thread to show some newcomers a decent app list, and home screen setup. If anyone has any questions, don't hesitate to ask.I'll start with my current apps, and then post some pics of my home screens.
I have a contact picture on one of my home screens with two + signs up under it. I can't figure out how to get it off of my home screen. If I download and app and I decide I don't want it, How do I get rid of it? Sorry for the (probably stupid) questions, but these two things are really bugging me at the moment.
It's nothing special but I got my 5 Droid X home screens set up, for now, using LauncherPro and figured I'd take capture a few screen shots. I like to keep everything simple and clean with apps put in seperate "sections" without having a bunch of widgets in the way. Feel free to ask any questions and if you want screen caps of certain things let me know.
I know this is becoming quite a root-centric forum, but for us non-rooters, I think getting 5 home screens will be the biggest upgrade in 2.1. It hasn't been confirmed though so as soon as someone finds out, LET US KNOW.If we get all the multi-touch + 2.1 Gallery + 5 home screens I will be a very happy camper.
If I am using LauncherPro and want to switch back to the original home screens..........how would I go about doing that? I don't want to uninstall.......just switch back for a bit. Are the widgets sizeable and customizable in LauncherPro?
I really liked the expose-like (Mac's expose) feature on the HTC Evo where if you pinch out it will show a spread of all your home screens as little thumbnails--like mac's expose feature. Will this be available on the Droid X?
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?
