    Arranging apps

    I tried moving some apps around last night using the normal method. However, I can only do one at a time. If I try to move a second one, it bounces back to it's original screen. I have to hit the home button to stop them wobbling, then start the process again.
    Anyone had this?

    Can you not only move one app at a time anyway? :s

    Are you trying to move them from one screen to another or re-arrange them on the same screen? And, of course, if you're moving them to a new screen, there has to be 'room' on that screen to accomodate the new icon.

    Hi Noddy,

    I was having the same issue when I first got mine. I couldn't get any to move to other screens, I found you need to drag the app to the edge of the screen, hold it there for a short time, then the screen switches to the next one and you are done. Initially I was dragging to the edge then letting go too soon and they would go to their original position. Hope this helps.

    If you want to rearrange a bunch of them, it's easier to do on iTunes. Hook up your iDevice and rearrange on your PC or laptop screen with a mouse. It's quick and easy to drag. You can drag apps across several pages, and even drag a whole page of apps and change the order of pages.

    I agree with 'KayKayKay' in that it’s easier with iTunes. Hopefully, iOS5 will revamp the way Apps are arranged and grouped. It’s currently a shell game. In fact, the construct is one of the reasons I dumped the iPhone and moved to the W7Phone.

    Another way to move an app over pages (if you don't have six apps in your dock):
    Move the app down to the dock; swipe to the page you want to move it to, and then move the app up from the dock.

    Done!

    +1 for the dock. I will take everything from the dock, and put it on a blank page. Then I have the whole dock.
    But that is only for major icon movement,
