    Well with the new update out, I was curious too see how other people arranged their iPhone home screens, and how much thought went into the arrangement.

    As for me:
    The first row is for internet related apps
    The second row is for media related apps
    The third row is for tools and utilities
    The forth row is for the settings
    and my most used apps go on the dock.

    I also positioned the Safari, iPod and clock apps in locations I can easily reach with my thumb since those are the three apps I use a lot, and I put iTunes, YouTube, Notes, and Maps in awkward places because I hardly ever use them. I'm constantly tweaking the layout as I see fit, but this is what I currently have.

    I currently have my home screen on the default. But I have all my Web Clips on the second screen/page. keeps it a little more organized.

    I've gone OCD on this thing, I keep thinking of ways it might be more useful to me. I was like that when it was jailbroken too, so I guess I should have known better. I wonder if Stevie is going to pay my psych bills if this thing ever gets broken and I have to be without it...

    I am currently trying alphabetical on page 1 and web clips on page 2. We will see how long that lasts.

    I must say, these webclips really make web apps a lot more convenient and intriguing, especially if the creators of the apps take advantage of creating a webclip icon.

    I just put my thumb on an app, closed my eyes, moved it, then let go. It's good to just mix things up.

    Mine are in alphabetic order. First page contains all the apps, plus a couple of webapps. The second page contains websites (that are not webapps).

    (And FetalSage, thank you so much for alerting me to MuniTime! Amazing!)

    Yep, the Food Network...

    just provided some excellent Turkey Chili and a Turkeyburger Recipes to die for! If you do most of the cooking, as I do, you need to devise a plan of attack when it comes to breakfast, lunch and dinner. Cutting down on red meat, proper exercise with a personal trainer, and cutting out fast food altogether has changed my diet plan and helped me to shed 20 pounds over the past year! So, THANKS to the Food Network, my transition to three healthy meals v. McDonald's and Jack-In-The Box, has been smooth and enjoyable! :cool:

    iPod touch

    Because we haven't got the iPhone (legally) in Australia yet, I'll tell you about my iPod touch Home Screen:

    Screen 1:

    Safari | Calendar | Mail | Contacts

    YouTube | Stocks | Maps | Weather

    Clock | Calculator | Notes | Settings

    Screen 2:

    Apple - Start | Google | Wikipedia | Mac Rumors

    Sydney Morning Herald | CNET | SiteAdvisor | Yahoo!

    In The Dock:

    Music | Videos | Photos | iTunes

    P.S. Even though it should've been free, the $20 Upgrade is definitely worth it (if any of you touch owners have doubts)

    I did not get to see them until after I cleared out my web cache under settings > Safari > Clear Cache, then they began to pop up. Try that, it may work for you too. After you hit add to home screen, give the webclip a few seconds to load the correct image.
