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!

AppleShare Upgrades

Send Article to a Friend

AppleShare Upgrades -- It seems that Apple really wants everyone to upgrade to AppleShare 3.0 and has extended the upgrade program to 31-Jul-92. Apple claims they mean it this time, so this may well be your last chance to upgrade at a discount. It appears that you'll need an upgrade coupon, which is available on AppleLink in the AppleLink -> Apple Sales & Mktg -> Apple Programs -> AppleShare Server 3.0 Upgrade folder. I suspect your dealer will have coupons or be able to get one for you.

If you bought AppleShare File Server 2.0 between 15-Oct-91 and 31-Dec-91, your original, dated, itemized sales invoice and original Server Installer disk will get you a free upgrade. If you purchased only the AppleShare File Server 2.0 before 15-Oct-91, your original Server Installer disk and $299 will get you an upgrade. For those who purchased both the AppleShare File Server 2.0 and the AppleShare Print Server 2.0 before 15-Oct-91, you can send in your original File Server Installer disk and your original Print Server Installer disk and $199, and Apple will give you an upgrade. If you're still confused, talk to your dealer. Each of the upgrades carries with it a $7 shipping and handling fee, making even the free upgrade not so free. Send all those upgrade coupons to:
