    I am a new iPad user and have discovered how to move app icons ON a screen to another position, but what if I want to reorganise my apps and move an icon from the first to the second or even third screen? How do I do this?

    Would appreciate your help...

    Two ways.

    One...create a place marker in your task bar icons...move the icon you want to move to the tray..,,move to the desired home screen and drag it off the task bar.

    Two...move icon to far left or right of preset home screen and the iPad will scroll to the next home screen up or down....drop icon.

    Easiest way - do it in iTunes on your computer.

    Or 1-you could put it in a folder, put it in your dock, go to the next page, take it out of the folder and put it on the page
    2-you could put it in a folder and hold it to the left or right of the screen and place it on the next screen
    3-if you want to move the app to the last page, you could delete the app and download it again
    .....but all of this would be completely uneccesairy

    This isn't a reply but I can't figure out how to ask a new question. I can get apps to move from page-to-page (thanks to the dock transfer comment here), but I can't get the icons to stop wiggling to get back to the home page, or even to use the buttons on the blank-page dock. I have rebooted, but that didn't help. Help? Thanks

    When you have finished moving icons around, to get them to stop wiggling - press the Home button once. Then, all wiggling will stop and you can then press any icon to open an app.

    Hope this helps.

    The normal way to get the apps to stop wiggling is to press the home button,another press will get you to the first home page.

    I found that if I press to wiggle, then move app icon to the bottom of the. Page and leave it there until I have flipped to the page I want to put it, then just pull it up from the bottom of the screen. Then press the home button to stop wiggle.

    Press home button until app wiggles
    Pull app you want to move to the bottom of the screen and leave it there while you move to the page you want to put it.
    Pull app up from bottom of screen on the new page
    Press home button to stop wiggle

    This works for me but I am a novice and just trying to help. I bought the instruction book for iPad and it said just slide to edge of the page and the app. Would move to the next page. Tried that...didn't work.
