We all love Android, but let's face it, moving those icons and widgets around your home screens can be quite tedious.
Launch Screen Organizer changes all of that!
Launch Screen Organizer consists of two components, an Android application that runs on your device and a desktop application that
runs on your computer. The desktop component uses Java Web Start technology so it doesn't need to be installed - simply click a
link on our site and it will start.
Ready!? Launch the desktop component and click Load - Launch Screen Organizer grabs the current home screens from your device
over your existing Wifi connection - NO WIRES NEEDED
. Once fully loaded, all of the home screens are laid out in a very
easy-to-see grid which mimics your existing home screens. In addition, all the applications installed on your device are displayed across
the bottom - just in case you want to add them to a home screen. Now simply drag-and-drop, using your mouse (or track pad), to easily
organize existing and/or add new applications to any of your home screens.
Experiment all you want, changes aren't made to your device until you click the Apply button. And don't worry, Launch Screen Organizer
DOES NOT change your existing launcher application in any way, you can still add/remove icons on your device in the same way you always have.
The computer component of Launch Screen Organizer requires Java to be installed. If you are unsure if you have Java, click
the following link to verify: Do I have Java?
Launch Screen Organizer will work on all Android versions from 1.5
to 2.2. It also will work with devices running HTC Sense UI - please read
the important notes below regarding Sense UI support.
Regarding HTC Sense Support
Only scenes that are saved on your device can be organized. If
you would like to organize the current scene you must save it first.
On your device do the following: Settings -> Personalize -> Scenes ->
Menu -> Save.
All of the scenes saved on your device are available to be modified
in Launch Screen Organizer. You can switch between them using the drop-down
list in the upper right corner of Launch Screen Organizer. When you click
Apply, all modified scenes will be updated on your device.
If you make changes to the current scene, you must reload it before
the changes will be reflected on your home screens - we are looking into
this to see how to make this happen automatically. Until then, the
simplest way to reload is to swith to another scene temporarily then
switch back to the scene that you modified using Launch Screen Organizer.
Also, Launch Screen Organizer has been designed to dynamically discover your device with no configuration. Unfortunately, some versions of Android
have a bug that breaks this functionality. If your device cannot be dynamically discovered, you can enter the IP address
and port of your device - this will allow the desktop component to communicate with it.
