    Yes there is. I thought there would be a different screen with all sorts of "apps/icons". I saw a video on youtube and it showed him scroll down not across

    ADW is a Launcher that you can download themes to it, root is so you have "ADMIN" access to your phone so you can change some system files and such it will also let you install custom ROMS, intall 3rd party apps and more
