  • Movement - Arrange your iPhone's Icons from your Computer


    I'm surprised it took this long for someone to release something like this, actually. Movement is a much-needed app from Jeff Stieler which reads your SpringBoard icon placement from your [jailbroken] iPhone or iPod Touch, and allows you to manipulate it and write back a new arrangement.



    The app requires your device to be plugged in, and requires OS X 10.5 or higher (works on PPC as well as Intel). I had a few issues with getting the software to operate smoothly (icons kept disappearing when side scrolling in the app, and then reappearing if I let it sit), but it is a beta, and overall works well and is a solid idea.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this one improved on. Its been muttered iTunes should have a built-in app organizer, with a few minor rumblings of rumored features, but nothing concrete. Movement to the rescue!

      A+ app. great stuff. wish i had a mac too. lol. oh well. Thats just what windows users have to expect using an apple product like the iphone. We are lucky that there are any programs that can be used on windows! i am thankful for that. At least they didnt make apple iphones apple compatible only products. now that it has been done though some smart windows dev will make one for windows too. Im sure that there's plenty of windows users that can use the info here and make a pc compatible version.

      That's pretty awesome that this guy figured all this out. It constantly amazes me how talented regular folk are compared to the people that actually made the darn iPod. I mean, how is this not a common feature? Or themes? I mean heck, if there were a market for $.99 cent themes I'd be rich by now.

      Wow, what a great and useful tool! I could really use this, but I am a PC user. Looking forward to someone making a windows version. Maybe it will even have more features than the Mac version and then PC users can suggest that Mac people ditch their hardware for a PC. LOL! ;-)

      This is an excellent app. I have every confidence that, if possible, it will be released for Win.

      Now, to you fanboy weanies. There has been JB's that were first released in Win. There is this app that is released for Mac. All you Win & Mac wannabes, quit wasting space in forums with the same blah, blah, blah. You just make me tired all over with your rhetoric.

      Well, I guess you did not notice the LOL or winking emoticon. I pretty much agree with you, I was just trying to be a little facetious and humorous. All of us are free to choose the computer platform that suits our needs best. I would not presume that I am in a position to dictate what anyone else should use. My joking comment to tell Mac users to switch to PC was purposley to show how absurd some of these coments are.

      Windows ppl... there is something called X86/hackintosh
      partition your HDD and install Mac on your PC, works like a charm, I am running 10.5.7 on my Sony Vaio without a problem (just had to replace the wifi card cuz it wasn't compatible with mac, 20 bucks on ebay)
