With 1.13 we can finally arrange the icons to our personal liking. How did you order your icons? Favs near the top/bottom, on second page etc.? For ex.My current setup is Business apps in the dock(phone, calendar, notes,email). Above that I have my multimedia section with(ipod, seeqpod, safari, iTunes). How is everyone arranging their homescreen and enjoying this new customization feature.:laugh2:

Good idea guys with all the communication apps in the dock. acosmichippo, are you saying you only left 4 other icons on the homescreen? Now that's organized. I know what your saying, I don't see a whole lot of use for the webclips as I already have bookmarks in safari, but I do have the seeqpod clip on my homescreen currently.

seeqpod works on the iPhone? i'll have to try it out... i just assumed it didn't.

But yeah, i like having as little "crap" as possible on my computers' desktops and my phone's springboard. The only problem is it looks a little drab without a wallpaper... :(

Yah, it works pretty good, better now that it is more like an app instead of a bookmark. You need to be on wi-fi to listen uninterrupted though.

I've been moving things around trying to figure out what setup I like best. Sometimes less is more, I'm still experimenting.

I've got a section for sports, a section for cell phone forums, a section for cell phone blogs, and lastly a section for web app games.

I am experimenting with 3 screens, using the middle screen as my main screen. Then I keep all my web links on page 1, which is to the left, and all the apps I don't use every day on page 3, which is to the right.

That way my main apps and main page is in the "middle," with screens to the right and left....

so far so good, but I change it up often....

I just found a new option in 1.13 to reset homescreen to default layout.

Go to settings/general/reset/reset homescreen layout.

Your Homescreen then defaults to factory arrangement and you can start anew. Or possibly use it to compare your different arrangements!

lol - I'm too OCD. I've kept my page 1 in Apple order from day one. My fingers know that layout well, so it's easier for me to use.

I've noticed that too. After months of using it the default way and getting used to where things are, is it really efficient to move things around?

i left all the original icons where they were and rounded out the page with web apps from EIC, Seeqpod & Google. Page 2 contains the websites i check each morning and Page 3 is loaded with links to all of my favorite local music venues so i can easily check who's playing where and when.
