    Hi guys

    i downloaded a couple of apps, which didnt download to the page i wanted. so i made them 'wiggly' to drag them to another page, but they wouldn't move pages.

    they became wiggly and i could put my finger on them and move them around, but it wouldn't move to another page like i'm used to doing on my Touch.

    what am i not doing right?

    When you move the wiggly icon to the side of the screen, so that half of the icon is beyond the screen, wait a second and it will move to the next home screen.

    I encountered the same thing until I found that you have to pause a bit at the edge of the screen before the icon will move to another page. On my iPod Touch is moves immediately to another page without the pause. But once you know this, it's no biggie.

    I find it easier to move them in and out of the dock to relocate to a different page

    Or use iTunes and drop the app directly on the desired home screen.
