    Default 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!

    Nice! I've been wanting something like this. Especially something that backs up the current layout. Perfect for restoring/reinstall jailbroken apps.

    Man this is an awsome idea. It will make things 100 times easier to install themes that require blanks to be moved around too. That is ofcourse when its fully released. Im not sure it supports webclips yet? I am probably going to use this myself.

    Awesome. Members have been asking for something like this for a long time. Hopefully a Windows version will be released soon too.

    Default This is Sweet!
    Certainly will save a lot of time and the backup feature is much needed. Good work!

    What a great idea -- this would address perhaps my biggest pet peeve about the iPhone. I really hope this is made available for Windows users soon.

    I dont know what your idea of cheap is , but I am sure 90 percent of the PC users would have gone to a Mac if they could afford it . I myself am not going to buy a low end Mac for the cost of a high end PC just to be able to run a few extra apps .

    It's not that easy for everyone, ditching windows and buying iMac, or Mac Book Pro, who want to go for less specs? as these days most of the windows users atleast have 2.2Ghz Dual Core. we need this app guys, do something please
