Arrange Icons on the iPhone/iPod touch Home Screens

Unhappy with the arrangement of your icons? You can move them around as follows: First, hold down on any Home screen icon until all the icons wiggle. Now, drag the icons to their desired locations (drag left or right to get to other screens). Finally, press the physical Home button on your device. (Unlike earlier releases, iPhone Software 2.1 doesn't move just-updated apps to the end of your Home screens, so your icons should be more stationary once you've installed the update.)

Remember that you can replace Apple's default icons in the four persistent spots at the bottom of the screen with your four most-used apps!

Dropbox Drops Pro Price, Adds Pro Features

To compete with pricing from Google Drive and OneDrive, Dropbox is now offering a single 1 TB tier of Dropbox Pro for $9.99 per month. More interesting for those who don’t need any more space are Dropbox Pro’s new features, including view-only permissions for shared folders, password protection and expiration dates for shared links, and remote wipe of Dropbox folders on lost devices.
