    PC App to Organize Home Screens?

    Title pretty much says it all. Rather than having to fiddle around with a phone sized screen and pushing icons all over the place (and into folders), does anyone make a PC (WIndows) product that would allow me to manipulate screens and icons from a nice, big monitor?

    TIA.

    You want to organize the phone's screen from a PC? What phone do you have? I don't get how organizing on the phone itself could be a problem.

    I don't think there's a program for that, but there is a program to control your phone through the PC. It's called Android Screencast.

    Samsung GS II, I9100, international version, Android 4.04, GO Launcher EX. It is much easier to view all home screens and available apps on one large monitor than shuffling back and forth on the phone screen.

    The OS itself was designed for 4 to 5 inches. You'll find it awkward on a large screen and in my opinion, moving them around with a finger is faster than with a mouse pointer. Plus, there are several ways of adding apps, if you don't want to scroll the pages, you can simply go to the edit mode and delete the unorganized pages and add fresh ones, takes about 5 seconds. Then pull the apps from the app drawer and you'll be able to choose the page without the need to scroll through them.

    But I think you should have bought a tablet instead.

    Other than that, you can try the Screencast program. I don't think that there are any other programs that could do this.

    Ahhh.. now I understand the confusion. No, I'm not looking for an app to actually run the phone from my PC. I am using Wondershare MobilGo to manage apps, send SMS'es, etc. What I was looking for is a something that would show all of my home screens plus a list of apps so that I could customize my home screens. iTunes allows something like this... a way to easily organize the apps from a PC.

    Cheers.
