    Well thanks to all the awesome homebrew devs and to Jason Robitaille for webosquickinstall, we have lots of apps and ability to add new launcher pages.

    So I'm interested in knowing how you guys are arranging your launcher pages and hopefully pickup some good ideas

    I've made the first launcher page the apps I use most consistently and all my web bookmarks for simple acces and adds universal search support.

    2nd-3rd page have apps that are used less and the 4th page has system utilities and 5th is for apps that take up space that I can't delete and never use like help and now the original music player.

    So how are you arranging your pages?

    1st page: Contact speed dials (thanks to LaunchPad)
    2nd page: Stock WebOS apps (Photos, Camera, Memos...)
    3rd page: App Catalog installed apps (Pandora, ESPN Zoom...)
    4th page: Homebrew apps
    5th page: System Utilities and Tools (Sounds & Ringtones, Screen & Lock...)

    1st page: Stock WebOS apps

    1: Most commonly used apps (quick dialer, contacts, calendar, navi, memos, stocks, etc)
    2: Info obtaining or internet apps (Facebook, city search, twee, etc)
    3: Tracking apps (Google maps, Pack 'n' Track, FlightView, Pretrack, etc)

    1: Most frequent used apps (Homebrew or App Cat)
    2: Phone, Music, Camera/Videos
    3: Downloaders, GPS apps, Utility apps
    4: System Utilities

    I don't have webpages or contacts (used to have full pages of them) on the launcher...I think the universal search works perfect for my needs and I didn't like flicking through too many pages.

    1: Stock apps (Contacts, Camera, Photos, etc.)
    2: Downloaded apps (both official & homebrew)
    3: Sprint garbage & utilities (PDF, Doc viewer, calculators)
    4: Games
    5: Web bookmarks
    6: System Utilities

    Quick Launcher: gDial Pro, Messaging, Email, Twee

    I've got multiple pages and 16 apps per page myself, so I too am using each page as a category.

    Page 1: Utilities (Phone, Clock, Memos, Tip Calc, Splash ID, Stopwatch, etc.)
    2: Multimedia
    3: Games
    4: News-type things (Includes XboxLive Friends, Twee, WootOn, Pack'n'Track, FlightView, Comics, ExpressStocks, and the "News" RSS reader)
    5: Anything that uses GPS, from things like OpenTable and WHERE to Sprint Nav and Google Maps, to Accuweather and GolfPinFinder
    6: System settings / utilities (All Prefs apps, App Catalog/Preware/Updates, MyTether, Brightness Unlinked, Terminal).

    And then on quick-launch I have messaging, email, calendar, web.

    Launcher page #1: Speed-dial launchpoints
    Launcher page #2: SMS launchpoints
    Launcher page #3: Email launchpoints
    Launcher page #4: Games
    Launcher page #5: other apps
    Launcher page #6: system utilities

    Quick-Launch bar: speed-dial launchpoint (wife), phone app, pandora, SMS launchpoint (wife)

    What's a launchpoint? Follow the link in my sig
    LaunchPoint Speed Dial - There's no faster way to dial, email, or text, period.

    You need to either manually patch some files, or use webOS Quick Install to do it for you.

    Good idea with the webpage bookmarks, but I ahve just been using the browser for that.

    1: High usage apps (phone, contact, email, tweed, etc...)
    2: Games
    3: Utilities and low usage apps
    4: System Apps

    Quick Launch: Quick Contacts, Web, Messaging, Calendar, Launcher

    Will I be able to figure it out from there?

    You need one of the newer versions, go into Tools, then Tweaks, and you'll see a bunch of things you can change.

    I hope so. It just brings up a menu of tweaks to apply with check boxes to select them.

    I would just suggest doing them one at a time. Your pre's GUI will reset for just a second (it will look like the load up screen).

    Honestly... I'm a little to lazy to sit there and rearrange everything because it's a tad slow when moving around apps/icons.

    1. games
    2. navigation, maps, pandora, weather, and music player
    3. standard web os stuff
    4. utilities

    launcher bar is phone, sms, and email.

    when i have cards open i keep sms and email on the sides with my main app in the middle. I know left swipe is sms and and right swipe is email. If the battery life was better i could keep sms/email open all the time and delete them off the launcher bar. I would add the golf GPS and pandora to the launcher bar then.
