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!

Coda 2.0.3

Send Article to a Friend

Panic has released Coda 2.0.3 with improvements in performance and syntax highlighting for the Web site development tool, as well as a number of bug fixes. The update makes importing of Coda 1 sites more reliable, improves the speed of returning to code when editing over a VPN connection, improves CFML HTML autocomplete and syntax highlighting, improves PHP syntax highlighting in certain circumstances, ensures that tabs aren’t obscured by the menu bar in Full Screen mode, and adds support for Notification Center. It also addresses some situations where Coda could become unresponsive, fixes an issue that prevented renaming of files and folders using Git, and ensures that site preview passwords are remembered if needed.

If you own the Mac App Store edition of Coda (which is still stuck at version 2.0.2 as of this writing), Cabel Sasser writes in the Coda Users forum that you can unlock the direct version of Coda by choosing Unlock Coda from the Purchase menu (available in Coda 2.0.2), and then subsequently download the 2.0.3 update. Additionally, Sasser notes that Panic received word from Apple that the OS X 10.8.2 update includes a fix for a WebKit-related problem that has been causing the majority of crashes in Coda 2. ($99 new, $75 upgrade from 1.0, free update, 48.4 MB, release notes)
