    Home screen icon preferences

    Advertisement



    I am doing quite a few themes for the pearl and the curve and would like to know what apps people use the most and what you prefer to have available on your home screen. So far I am designing based on my own preferences but have no idea if this is meeting other peoples desires. Also do you prefer separate sms and email or a single message inbox.

    I like Messages (combined, not seperate), Browser, address book, calendar, memo pad, calculator. I like to keep the home screen somewhat profesional looking, and have all of my fun stuff in the apps screen.

    I like the custom today with messages (combined) and calendar in the 'today' area, and then usually browser, media, call log, and manage connections across the bottom.

    I prefer separate SMS and Message Icons. I dont use the indiviual email icons for each account, I use the joint message icon for all of them. I use the Zen theme.
    Messages, SMS, calendar, bbweather, Web.

    Thanks for your work on new themes.

    I like messages combined too. Its useless to make another icon that's useless. Its kinda like the phone log icon, you can just hit the call button.

    Hey I didn't know you could hit the call button and get the phone log! Thanks! Now I can use that space for something else :-) I don't know how I never read about that before!

    I guess I'm picky, I like themes that I can choose what icons are on the front page. I have weatherbug, sms, two e-mail accounts and bbm right now.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Well it seems the only major downfall of the new cdk is the in ability to add 3rd party app icons to the home screen. I get the impression that most people could be appeased by adding the most common apps to the home screen.

    UPDATE

    After cleaning up with Maxmem and having the BB Dim Zen theme only, I have a home screen I like better. I have: messages, gmail, facebook, call log, and browser. This is working out well for me.
