Re: What am I doing wrong?

I think we are getting close but the weather widget didn't disappear, it moved two screens to the right of where it was.

Aha! :D


So, I am going to assume that somehow, either due to accident or a glitch, the Weather/Clock widget was moved off the home page. This leaves a vacumn there, and you know how Android feels about a vacumn. The entire "second page" gets promoted, and you can't swap pages. 


The best way to avoid this is to not have only one widget or icon on the home page. That gives you some protection; if one accidentially gets moved, you still have a "placeholder" keeping your home page in place and preventing a promotion of the next page.


FWIW, I have seen that big Clock widget move off the home page myself from time to time. I don't know why/how it happens -- did I do it accidentially or did something happen with the OS that moved it? Impossible to say, though I suspect it was me accidentially dragging it when I went to put my phone in my pocket without turning off the screen or something.

Placing another app on the screen was suggested before. Your response explains why and how it could have happened. Thanks.
