"What's on Your Home Screen", via TNW

I saw this interesting article on TNW (The Next Web) about "What's on Your Home Screen?" It caused me to think about my homescreen with several folders, each with several items inside them. I am trying something new, only having 15 items, no folders, on the home screen. I have:

  1. The App Store
  2. Calendar
  3. Settings
  4. The Weather Channel
  5. Clock
  6. Google Maps
  7. Music
  8. Podcasts
  9. Photos
  10. Pinterest
  11. Chrome
  12. Reminders
  13. Twitter
  14. Instagram
  15. LinkedIn
With Phone, Email, Messages and Camera down along the bottom. 
I have moved folders to the second screen.

What does your home screen look like, Reader? Any things you can't live without? What is the first item you open when you pick up your phone?

I read an interesting article about how people are trying to cut everything on their phones down to just the bare necessities. My homescreen is probably pretty much how it came from the factory LOL. I always go to instagram, but it's not on my homescreen -- I wonder how much time I'm losing to have to swipe to the next screen -- maybe I should move it.

And I can't even remember how to do podcasts. If we go to the new open seating mess they're talking about at work, podcasts and my earphones are going to be my new best friend!

I don't even understand the question! I have a smart phone but mainly use it for text messages and taking photos of the grandchildren.
