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!

iPhoto 7.1.3 Fixes Books and Cards

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released iPhoto 7.1.3 with a one-line description, "This update addresses issues with wire-bound books and cards." The update is available via Software Update or as a standalone 16.9 MB download.

Needless to say, I recommend you download this essential update right away, even if you don't plan to print wire-bound books or cards, and even if you're not planning on using iPhoto in the near future. If these "issues" are actually psychological problems, who knows what sort of a rampage iPhoto could embark upon, although I would personally worry about the permissions of your photo thumbnails; iPhoto has long been overly possessive about those files.
