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!

Poll Preview: Palm Before the Storm -- Handheld computers used to belong only to the excessively organized or excessively geeky (or odd combinations of both). Now, every third person at a convention is trying to beam you his business card. With the popularity of Palm OS-based devices on a continual climb, we want to know: If you've been thinking about buying a Palm OS-based handheld device, which model do you find most appealing? Choose from the monochrome Palm III family (Palm IIIx, IIIxe, or IIIe), the color Palm IIIc, the slim Palm V or Vx, the wireless Palm VII, Handspring's Visor or Visor Deluxe, or the Technology Resource Group's TRGPro. Read on for more details about the new Handspring Visors and register your vote on our home page! [JLC]
