On the Aura Home screen, when you load a lot of books it uses ONE tile (which you can dismis). You can actually remove whichever tiles (except the sync tile on 2.5.1) you like. It is basically a history of last viewed items. It makes it easy to go back to sudoko or word scamble or whichever of the last four or so books I have open.

I find it the most useful Kobo Home screen since the original I'm Reading on the Original Kobo. In fact, I like this better since I have a lot of control over what stays on the screen.

To be honest I rarely use the home screen except to get to the shelves. If I wanted to go on lt to the same shelf it is faster opening a shelf on the home screen by as much as 2 minutes but I rarely (almost never) want to do that.

And I am curious. I am pretty sure I can get the current home screen back if I want to, and probably will have to evntually anyway.

May not even try the 2.x thing, but nice to have the option.
