The main screen on an Android is called the Home screen. It’s where all the action takes place: where you start the apps, work the widgets, and check out what’s going on via notification and status icons.

You find several Home screen pages, some marching off to the left and others marching to the right, for a total of anywhere up to nine Home screen pages, depending on the device. Each Home screen page can be adorned with icons, widgets, and sneeze globs. Only the sneeze globs are easily removed by using a microfiber cloth.
