    Wondering what everyone is using their Edge screen panels for. At first I didn't really get how or why I'd want to use it, but now I'm using it every day.
    So far my favorite things are:

    -Pandora Stations edge panel - you can program in your favorite pandora stations and have quick access to them. Loads a lot faster than trying to open up the Pandora app and navigate to a particular station.

    -Tasks Edge - good for 3 things so far:
    1) quickest way I've found for sending texts to people you repeatedly text or viewing your text history.
    2) shortcut to your clock timer (helpful if you're cooking or trying to time something. Easier than navigating to the clock and then timer.
    3) create event/task - fast way to add something to your calendar

    Anyone else discover anything surprisingly useful?

    I only have the apps edge running right now. I like having my favorite apps a flick away so I can keep my home screen clean

    I am a first time user and I am not sure exactly what the edge panels are for. Can't you put the same info on your screens? . I guess I'm not sure how to properly use them and what the advantage to using them is.

    It can be as simple as app shortcuts, or there are news panels and other widget type panels that can be used. It's really just a different way to organize your phone. A right swipe for favorite contacts, apps, or places etc, or a right swipe to your Pandora or CNN feed

    Wouldn't be enough room on one screen to hold everything the edge panel can... I love having a clean screen and all my go to item's just a flick away....

    I use the CNN panel cause I don't really keep up with the news but I can run there if anything happens..... People edge to have my top 5 contacts there as shortcuts to text or call and I keep apps edge for the few apps I use but don't want on my home screen like calculator, my files, notes, translate and I also keep my secure folder icon there..

    Yes. Many people like a clean home screen. I often change my wallpaper and I like to see it, not a bunch of apps. So between the edge panels, and swipepad, I have quick access to everything I use but nothing is visible on my homescreen except my wallpaper and clock.

    It's also great to flick the edge panel while an app is open. I usually check my gmail widget then tap out without missing a beat..

    I have been searching for a Pandora edge panel and haven't found one. Do you mind posting a screenshot from the edge downloads so I know what to search for?

    I am currently using 2 edges - People edge and apps edge. I love being able to clear up my homescreen by using apps edge.

    How do I add the Pandora stations? I figured out how to put favorite contacts and favorite apps. Wasn't aware that you could do that with Pandora.

    Yep, that's the one! The video is very helpful re: how to set it up. Some reviews complain about pictures not auto-populating.

    I use it for my main apps I use most. I like my home screen to stay clean.

    The main one that I use is the widget panel. I've got Google now, Google keep, and the task widget. It's a quicker way to get to now than the home button, makes it quick to take notes if the pen is already put and I want to hop into keep, and let's me quickly add tasks to my calendar, so I can just have the main calendar widget on a home screen.

    Sure, it's a fairly limited use, but I'm still glad I have it for those. I'm still trying to find more ways that I actually want to use it, though.
