    Maybe I am just not doing this right (ipad 3). Got it yesterday. Very nice. When trying to move an icon (on the same screen) to an empty location on the screen, it jumps right back to where it was. it looks like the icons are locked to grid somehow, and you're not allowed to place an app icon where you want it. Any ideas?

    The icons line up starting at top left. You can change the order or move to another page, but you cannot put one on the bottom, for instance, if the page is not filled to that point.

    Czevski is correct, the icons go in that order on a stock iPad. However, I am compelled to say that, if you jail break your iPad, you can purchase a tweak from Cydia (the jail breakers "App Store") called Gridlock ($0.99, USD) that will allow you to place icons anywhere on the springboard, like this:



    Pretty cool, eh?

    But, again, not possible on a stock iPad, sorry.

    Okay. I think I fixed it. Let me know if you still don't see it. Thanks for the heads up.

    @Joshua: Why did you post a copy of the very first post in this thread with no comment from you? Normally, this is done by spam bots, yet your other posts appear to be original thoughts.

    If you are indeed real - please send me a PM within the next couple of days. Else, I will decide that you are a spam bot and delete/ban your account for spamming.

    In addition, as this thread has run its course (question asked and answered), it is now closed. Thanks for your understanding.
