Ergonis Software has released PopChar X 6.2 with a couple of improvements for quickly finding special characters in the font discovery utility. The update adds a Command-F keyboard shortcut to enter the search field, and you can also start typing a search string when the cursor is in PopChar’s character table. The contextual menu gets a couple of additions, including a Copy Character Description command that copies a brief summary of the selected Unicode character and a Copy Font List command that copies a list of font names. The release also adds support for Unicode 6.2, improves appearance of the group pop-up button (particularly for Retina displays), fixes a bug that prevented some fonts from being detected in certain apps (such as Microsoft Word), and provides a workaround for window flickering on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Finally, you can now manually launch PopChar and open the PopChar window by double-clicking its icon in the Finder. Previously, double-clicking the Finder icon closed the PopChar window if it had already been open. (€29.99 new with a 25-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 3.6 MB, release notes)
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!
