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!

Word 5.1a patcher available

Send Article to a Friend

Word 5.1a patcher available -- On Friday the 13th, Tony Huang posted to the Info-Mac digest, saying "Believe or not, there's already a updater for the newly-released Word 5.1. Word 5.1a fixes a bug in Word 5.1 during fast-saving when headers or footers are involved."

Order the free updater from Microsoft Customer Service by calling the number below, or download it from sumex. The 10K file is archived on <sumex-aim.stanford.edu> as:

info-mac/app/word-51a-updater.hqx

To address the prevalent net question about spending $15 on the upgrade from Word 5.0 to 5.1, we at TidBITS feel the upgrade is worth it for the serious Word user. Although the tone of the program has not changed, Microsoft reportedly fixed a number of bugs and added a few features, perhaps most important of which is the ability to print even or odd pages. Welcome to the 1990's!

Microsoft Customer Service -- 800/426-9400
