Woo hoo! I’ve been waiting for this functionality for months, and it’s finally here with iTunes 9.0. iPhone and iPod Touch / iTouch users no longer have to tediously arrange application icons on their iPhone / iTouch: it is now possible to arrange icons as desired using a drag-and-drop interface included with iTunes. It is SO much easier to do this on a larger computer screen, than on the smaller screen of an iPhone / iTouch, particularly when you have ten screens of applications.
Now I can readily move all the games my kids have downloaded and use on my iPhone to separate screens, just for them. 🙂
iTunes 9.0 is a free download for both Windows and Apple computer users. I maintain a list of all my iPhone apps, but need to update it – we’ve added quite a few new items over the summer! We use the same computer’s iTunes program to sync all the iPhones and iPods in our household, and this works well. We just have to make sure the “correct” person (who owns the device) is logged into the iTunes store when we sync devices, otherwise someone else’s password is required to download or update apps.
