    I seem to be constantly changing the apps that I have pinned to my homescreen. I'll pin and unpin apps after trying to use the app, or telling myself that I will actually use an app like the New York Times app or the AllRecipes.com app (cooking... ha! wishful thinking)

    My primary 8 tiles always stay the same with my extra ones varying from time to time

    My current set up is as follows:

    [phone] [messaging]

    [internet explorer] [me]

    [people] [weather]

    [linked email] [music+video]

    [marketplace] [family]

    [ calender ]

    [weave] [Office]

    [ pictures ]

    [alarms] [maps]

    [ESPN] [Xbox Live]

    [Twitter@benfgsg] [facebook]

    [FML] [Runkeeper]

    [Settings] [WpFandora]

    [Fhotoroom]

    What does everyone else have for their homescreens?

    It's a pretty rough layout for my homescreen, I know. If anyone knows if there is a nonhomebrew screenshot app I would appreciate that :)

    I just downloaded the AppDeals, Words by Post, and Stop the Music! apps, I really like them all. It's interesting to see what apps people value and use enough to put on their homescreen. :)

    Top many to list. But to summarize; several of the built-in apps, 4 emails, 3 folders for; favorite apps, map/search apps and storage/SkyDrive/Dropbox apps, a couple live tile Sports score apps, a couple quick access note apps, speed dial, battery meter, network dashboard, parcel tracked, urban dictionary, weather channel, and a bunch of others. Think it's 42 right. Trying not to add any more.

    Oh, and always a few temp tiles for reminders, notes, etc., that fall in below my Settings/Marketplace tiles at the bottom of my screen. The temp tiles get deleted daily.

    I keep things clean and simple:

    [Phone][www.google.com]
    [Music+Videos][Text Me]
    [Calendar]
    [Settings][Alarms]
    [Pictures]
    [homework.doc][xbox live]

    The "Alarms" Tile I especially like. The time of the next alarm is indicated on the tile. I always get paranoid that I have my alarm set on the wrong time.

    My philosophy is if the app doesn't show up without having to scroll down, there isn't that much a point of pinning the app anyways. I considered removing the "Pictures" tile; but kept it simply because it was aesthetically pleasing.

    At this point, I would take either. Every day, my wife rubs it in my face that her iPhone will do it, natively. I had an app on my BlackBerry that I gladly paid for, and would again on this phone in a heartbeat.

    That's a pretty good idea, a tile for reminders to try an app or whatever I want to remember, I can put that where my weather tile is, because I don't really need a live update of the weather. I'm usually windows adjacent throughout the day. :P
