Thoughts on HomeScreen for BB10?
I was wondering, wont we miss a Homescreen in BB10 ?
I think there should be a place to go to
when all of the apps are closed,
a place where there are no rows (of icons,)
a place where we can look at our cool new wallpapers,
a place to call Home.
Maybe if the Active Frames page was always there and didn't just disappear when the apps are closed, it would create a more streamlined UX, and give us a Homescreen too."Your Punishment Must Be More Severe"

can't you just close the active frames... won't that page still exist? :x
If it does go, they should just bring it back... seems odd to have no home screen oh wellTo innovate is to create the MP3 Player, to revolutionise is to create the iPod.

Its not just the wallpaper, its about having a HomeScreen.
Its kinda hard to explain but imagine a windows computer that loads directly into "My Computer" and has no concept of Desktop... and no the screensaver doesn't cut it."Your Punishment Must Be More Severe"

isn't the starting point either the active frames (if there is any running apps) or the app grid with the call - search - camera row. I see only two solutions imo: 1.theme or customization of the app grid 2.Customization of the lock screen. Maybe there is wallpaper available on the lock screen. This would be a good place for a widget imo. I think they should allow icons to change size too, small medium large - why not?

I find the system to be quite infuriating. I've a few issues with active frames in and of themselves, but I'd be willing to get over them if they weren't thrown in my face every time I tried to launch a new app. /rant

In ios you have to leave your home to do other things(third party apps) and then when you are done you return home.
In bb10 instead of leaving home you bring everything into your house. You have your living room (music games video streaming apps) your home office(word editors and other work related tools) and your bed room( sleep mode and alarm clock)
When you use bb10 everything flows like when you walk from room to room in your house so bb10 is your home.
