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!

Joe Kissell Joins TidBITS as Senior Editor

Send Article to a Friend

Although some people seem to believe that I do everything with TidBITS, nothing could be further from the truth - TidBITS wouldn't exist without the ongoing work of Tonya, Geoff Duncan, Jeff Carlson, Matt Neuburg, Glenn Fleishman, and Mark Anbinder. But for a number of years now, TidBITS itself has been more or less in steady state, with most of our new project time going to Take Control. There are many and varied reasons for this fact, but we've decided to devote more effort to helping TidBITS evolve in new and interesting ways.

We may not have the resources of a large company, but we do have a lot of highly capable friends, and one of them, Joe Kissell, has agreed to join TidBITS as Senior Editor. We've worked closely with Joe since we convinced him to write "Take Control of Upgrading to Panther" for us in 2003, and his dedication to accuracy, helpfulness, and timeliness not only made his Take Control ebooks essential reading for many, it also caused us to think that Joe would make a fine addition to the regular TidBITS staff.

Along with writing articles that draw on his extensive knowledge and experience (all bolstered by the vast amount of research he's done while writing his Interesting Thing of the Day site), Joe will also be serving as the fingers behind our general <editors@tidbits.com> email address and helping us create new TidBITS online services. Joe's getting his feet wet with programming in Web Crossing right now, and I'm looking forward to seeing what he can create once he understands the subtleties of what Web Crossing can do.

Of course, as TidBITS Senior Editor, Joe will have to learn to deal with the burdens of fame: the podcast paparazzi, being sent up in Crazy Apple Rumors, and - if he's not careful - being asked to sing at Macworld Expo parties. Welcome to TidBITS, Joe!
