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!

I have both the book and disk versions of PowerBook: The Digital Nomad's Guide (discussed in TidBITS #201). The disk version is based on Voyager's Expanded Book concept, about which many people have mixed feelings. The Expanded Book idea is useful for a technical Macintosh book in comparison to a novel, because here the hypertext links make more sense (you can click on most everything, especially the index). I also like the idea of having a reference book online. The big drawback is that these books are based on HyperCard, so The Digital Nomad's Guide consumes close to 2 MB of disk space and needs a lot of RAM. Even worse, the hard disk spins constantly, drawing battery power and making noise. [Some might argue with the statement about hypertext links not making as much sense in fiction; it's nice to see mass-market technical books joining the increasing number of hypertext fictions from Eastgate Systems. -Adam]
