New to the DROID family
I had been a Crackberry abuser for 4 years and i never thought i'd see the day when i left. I went to Verizon to get the Storm2, a rep walked up and said "have you checked out the droid." To which i replied, "yeah, but i hate sliders..." When he left i meandered over to the DROID and played with it for a couple of min. I was BLOWN AWAY and bought it the next day.
With that said....i have a question!
Is there any way to set the screen up so the 1st page is the main page..with the two other pages being on the right??? I would like to flip through the pages like a book, and not have to go back and forth.

I use dxTop .... and the setup is based on gestures ... scroll down its the top page, scroll down its a bottom, and then left and right are two other screens ... like a cross pattern and those swipes work the same on any screen ... so the left you scroll down and its the main page ect. Haven't tried the free ones but paid is probably the best solution.

First welcome to the Droid family and your trip to verizon sound like the same as mine, going to buy the storm but walk out with a Droid. You will be very happy you made the move.
It sounds like you would like GDE which you can swipe to any side right or left and keep going through all screens i.e. 1-2-3-1-2-3-1 this way you never have to scroll back if you don't want to. And you can pick any of the screens to be your home and up to 7 different screens or as few as you want.

Thanks a lot for the help guys. However, i'm still a little confused. When i search yalls recommendations in the market, i get a whole list of different themese and such. Specifically, i don't want to change anything about the theme (colors, icons, or strange menu bar). All i want is to be able to set the first screen as my home page.
And could you give me a specific item to type in the search field.
Sorry, newb and all

<- XStorm user.. There is allot of home replacement options as you can prolly tell from all the replies. Personally I'm a minimalist by nature and found the most basic replacement with small upgrades I could, either way try them all out as most of us have here. Almost all have the option you're looking for in your home screen.
