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!

We plan to test our ListSTAR-based mailing list for TidBITS in the next week (and we'll be sending the next DealBITS issue out a few days early for testing purposes), so don't worry (and please don't respond) if you get a test message from us. Also, although the new subscription address at <tidbits-on@tidbits.com> is now functional, please don't use it if you're already on the current list that we're moving from LISTSERV to ListSTAR. We will try to eliminate duplicates, but the fewer the better. [ACE]
