Thanks for the suggestions! I was looking at apps, wondering which ones might be fun, this list will really help!
You're right, I had been putting my finger on the shortcut or widget, but then immediately moving it down. Or I had been clicking it.
I went to Costco (where I bought the phone), the guy there showed me how to do what I wanted to do, plus he showed me some more cool stuff about Swype. I never want to tap, tap again after using swype!
To move an shortcut or widget, simply put your finger on it for a bit, the phone should vibrate to let you know, the drag if off the side to the direction of the screen you want it on or down to the trash to get rid of it.
Download tiny flashlight. Very useful
I like "Handcent" for texting with "Emoji" for the extra smileycons.
I use unified remote for my TV computer.
Alchemy is a fun game.
You can also get the original "Doom" for a laugh.
Jewels online for a fun play onlive head to head "candy is dandy" type game.
Timer by "spinninghead" is a great watch type timer app.
Beautiful Home Weather is a great looking home widget that gives you weather and time like HTC phones have.
Movie finder to see whats playing in whatever area you are at.
I prefer "Miren" browser. Snappy and clean.
