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!

PhoneValet 1.1 Improves Integration

PhoneValet 1.1 Improves Integration -- Parliant today released PhoneValet 1.1, a software upgrade to the company's Mac OS X-based hardware/software telephone management package (see "PhoneValet, Can You Get That?" in TidBITS-699 for a full review). PhoneValet 1.1 provides tighter integration with Apple's Address Book, enabling you to dial phone numbers from within Address Book, and automatically setting your status in iChat to "on the phone" when you're using the telephone. Unfortunately, the iChat integration (which you turn on in the Call Actions dialog accessible from the PhoneValet menu) works only if your status was set to available before placing or receiving a call. Other improvements include Panther compatibility, Apple event support, better support for AppleScript, and plug-ins and examples of how to automate dialing from FileMaker Pro and Microsoft Entourage. Parliant has made available a free PhoneValetRescue application that restores all your data after performing an Archive and Install option to upgrade to Panther. The PhoneValet 1.1 updater is a 9.1 MB download and is free to registered customers; a PhoneValet package costs $130. [ACE]
