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!

The Complete TidBITS on the Web

Send Article to a Friend

Thanks to the tireless, assiduous efforts of Matt Neuburg <matt@tidbits.com>, every TidBITS issue - from the present day all the way back to TidBITS-001 from April of 1990 - is now available online in HTML format. Matt has done a stunning job converting our old setext issues to HTML format (using a set of Nisus Writer macros - the conversion was heavily automated), and these files represent a major step toward making our library of past material more accessible and useful.

<http://www.tidbits.com/tb-issues/>

To access any particular issue, you can use a URL in the form:

http://www.tidbits.com/tb-issues/TidBITS- xxx.html

...where "xxx" is the issue number of the issue you wish to view, such as "030" (note the leading zero) or "200".

Taking a stroll down TidBITS' memory lane can reveal some real gems, such as the first TidBITS April Fools article that turned into a real product (TidBITS-114), Matt's first prescient appearance in TidBITS-095 (and my own nondescript premiere much later in TidBITS-167). Other classics include Mark Anbinder's stint keeping the TidBITS fires burning during Adam and Tonya's original move to Seattle in 1991, the almost unbelievable lineage of the classic computer game Adventure detailed by Mel Park in TidBITS-229, and TidBITS-300, listing 300 reasons the Mac is great. And, of course - since we measure all things by issue number here at TidBITS - I should note Adam and Tonya were married in TidBITS-062.

We owe Matt a tremendous debt of gratitude for converting this material to HTML - and we aren't stopping here! We plan to offer an improved table of contents for these issues shortly, and eventually hope to implement Web-based indexes and searching capabilities for TidBITS issues.
