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!

Swept up in the enthusiasm and zealousness to release the new StuffIt Expander 3.5 and DropStuff with Expander Enhancer (DSEE), we screwed up. In a nutshell, the release versions of these utilities will expire on 16-Aug-94. In addition, the auto-registration feature of DSEE isn't working properly. By the end of July, however, we will post versions 3.5.1 which will resolve these issues.
