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!

In the U.S., it's Labor Day, which most people here celebrate by not working, and I certainly hope they're enjoying themselves. We've sided with the rest of the world by painting the storm-battered trim on our house, releasing DealBITS, and publishing TidBITS. Speaking of TidBITS, last week's mailing list distribution of the TidBITS issue went well, and we're continuing to refine our tools and techniques. Please note that we've turned off the TidBITS list at the Rice University LISTSERV, which means that anyone who tries to subscribe via our old method will receive an error message. Please help spread the word far and wide that the way people subscribe to TidBITS is by sending email to <tidbits-on@tidbits.com>. [ACE]
