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!

More PIMs, Now

More PIMs, Now -- Late last month, Adobe and Now Software announced that Now Software would take over the development, marketing, and support of Adobe's DateBook (for both Mac and Windows) and TouchBase personal information managers. The applications, which don't fit with Adobe's product focus, came originally from Aldus, and before that from After Hours Software. The move gives Now Software an immediate foothold in the Windows market, and users can expect an easy migration to Now Software's future product offerings, such as data and file compatibility with its more-powerful Now Up-to-Date and Now Contact. Now Software -- 503/274-2800 -- 503/274-0670 (fax) -- <support@nowsoft.com> [ACE]
