I presume it is based on the Android "recently used" list but in Android that only comes up when you choose it. Since Amazon replaced the home screen this was a way to provide that functionality pretty easily, but yeah, it sucks in it's current form. As does the inability to remove certain app icons.
It would be much better if they had more of an customizable android home screen(s).
