Home Screen Sweet Home Screen

Figure 2-3 shows the default Home screen for Android 2.1. This is where you can store your favorite apps or display your favorite wallpaper. Your phone actually has between three and seven pages of Home screen. With your phone in portrait mode, swipe your finger sideways to flip between the pages of your Home screen.

I'll get more into customization in Chapters 14 and 15. One idea to keep in mind for organization is to keep a theme in mind for every page, so you know where to find the apps you need. One page may be dedicated to social networking apps. One page might be dedicated to e-mail and office productivity while another page might be dedicated to games, restaurants, and entertainment tools.
