Hi everyone. I'm new here, but thought I'd see what everyone has on their Start screen. Mine goes like this:

Phone | People
Me | Girlfriend contact tiel
Messaging | Quick Lists
World Weather | Maps
Facebook | Birdsong
Calendar
Marketplace | USA Today
eBay | IE
FML | Fandango
Alarms | Office
Pictures
Urban Dictionary | Shazam
Email | LazyTube
XBL | Zune
Penguin | AlphaJax
WPCentral | Settings

What's everyone else got?

Pretty standard. I like the home screen but I feel like the "other" apps could go somewhere better than just a list. I don't know any other good apps to get.

I'm too lazy to post my file start screen, so here's the stuff above the fold:

Phone | Messaging
Personal Email | Business Email
Calendar
Music+Videos | Internet Explorer

I created a few rules for myself which keeps my start screen logical (for me) and fresh, such as

1. Regardless of the fact that I don't make many calls, the Phone/Dialer must be "above the fold" and in the same spot. First and foremost, it's still a phone and the dialer should be in an easy-to-reach spot.

2. Most frequently-used apps go to the top of the screen. After that, apps are segregated by types (weather, news, images).

3. I'm a little more flexible with live tile apps, especially photo live tile apps. I put at least one for every six tiles so I'm pretty much always looking at something fresh on my homescreen. Constantly-changing images keep the homescreen fresh. Aside from the Pictures Hub, USA Today, Bing Is Beautiful, and Flickr all have great photo live tiles. The Top Tweets portion of the Samsung Now app (Samsung only, sorry) shows a snippet of a random top tweet, something which is fun to check out when I have a few seconds to waste.

4. The last two apps are always Settings and Diagnostics. I usually dive into both pretty frequently, and have them at the bottom for the same reason that the Phone is at the top of my screen.

Is there a way to take a screenshot of it? I'm too lazy to type all mine out.
Black & White in NoDo unfortunately, but Mango used to be colour so what's changed? Hmmmmmm
