Managing widgets on Android
By Paolo Amoroso • Issue #69 • View online
How do you organize your home screen on Android?
On my devices I arrange the icons as a grid on the main home screen and the next two to the right, with the built-in Discover taking up the one at left. This works well because it minimizes access time to a specific icon, but spreading too many across more screens adds some friction. That’s why I’m grouping a few related icons into folders to fit more on a screen. If grouping frees up enough screen space, I may add one or two widgets.
