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!

NoteBook 1.2 v180 Beefs up HTML Export

Send Article to a Friend

NoteBook 1.2 v180 Beefs up HTML Export -- Circus Ponies Software has released NoteBook 1.2 v180, a minor upgrade to their elegant snippet keeper and information manager, which I've found handy for maintaining to do lists and taking notes on complex procedures. This version adds an option to export only changed pages to HTML, preserves text styling in HTML, and automatically converts a series of multiple spaces to a non-breaking space character. You can also now choose the format for images pasted into Notebook. Circus Ponies also fixed a number of bugs, including an annoying one with the licensing system that could cause a crash on the first launch after restarting your Mac. NoteBook 1.2 v180 is a 7.7 MB download that's free to registered users; new copies cost $50. [ACE]
