Add a Speed Dial or a Home Screen to opera touch

I just stumbled upon "My Flow" by accident using Opera and I'm quite impressed, it's a wonderful idea. I also love the idea of a streamlined companion opera browser in my android phone.
However, the home page which is identical to speed dial is taken up mostly by "top sites" which is identical to the speed dial's suggestions.
There is no way i can find, though, to hide or remove top sites and the useless, redundant instances of the first 3 items that belong in the history tab.
When I open Opera on my pc I am presented with no clutter, just a search bar and ~5-6 bookmarks carefully curated by me to immediately find the pages where i am most active online.
It did, admittedly, take a long time sifting through random corporate pop-up suggestions long after suggestions were turned off before I had a smooth browsing experience.
I just think it is painfully obvious that when using two programs synergistically in a flow across two devices there should be some consistency. So it would make sense to have a home page that is functional, preferably similarly functional to its companion. Otherwise I am just using opera touch to get weblinks for browsing in google chrome that i sent myself from home, and I already have an e-mail app that can do that.
I am a proud user of opera browser because it doesn't pester me with the same post-capitalist, mass corporate panhandling that we accept is hiding behind every rock or moldy old apple that dots the trail through our virtual world, rattling change in an old fast food paper cup.
I intend to give opera touch a fair chance to become my primary web browser. I want it to be as good as it can be.
... but i'll probably uninstall and never look back after the 4th or 5th time it shoves the facebook logo in my face.
