    I saw this today and thought it was neat. Seems to work pretty good. Mac only at this time.

    Have you ever wanted to rearrange your applications on your iPhone, but ended up messing up pages of apps? Well, now there is a solution for that, and it’s called Movement. Movement essentially lets your rearrange all of your applications on your iPhone or iPod Touch, straight from your Mac. Seems too good to be true, right? Of course, there’s a catch. It requires a jailbroken iPhone.

    Isn't there a rumor that this same type of feature will be included by Apple in 3.1? I seem to recall hearing that.

    Yeah, I think it was rumored for iTunes 9... though with the event on the 9th coming up I wouldn't be surprised if we saw 3.1 and iTunes 9 on the same day.

    once again, leave it to the jailbreak community to solve problems that apple should have considered from the beginning.

    Get a gently used Mac laptop off Craigslist.

    I've had two. Both have served me as well as a new one.

    1st ---> iBook G4 bought for $350, used for 1 year, sold for $250
    2nd --> MacBook bought for $500, ready for Snow Leopard !

    Total outlay $600 for over 1 year of use.

    The Software works pretty good and it would

    be nice to see this added to the next iTunes update. It's very handy Now that I've used it

    Unfortunately its screen updating is really horrible. So if you don't have a large monitor it won't work too well for you. I have a sneaking suspicion that by the time it's working right iTunes 9 will be out with the same features.

    Still cool project.

    Maybe it will further prompt Apple to get of their butts and make this iPhone a complete package. ;)

    Can't wait for this to come to iTunes. Actually I'm hoping we get it period. Sooooo awful swapping icons on the phone.

    What I'm most intrigued by is how they are accessing the springboard.plist. It appears to be syncing via the USB cable. I know there was a plugin for MacFuse that used to be able to do this but it hasn't been updated for a year and doesn't work with 3.x.

    I've tried lots of ways to access my phone but the only reliable one I've found is Cyberduck + Bonjour. I even gave up using netatalk.

    I agree, just tried it and it is quite cumbersome, the icons get all jumbled up in the program when scrolling back and forth to see all your pages. It took me as long as if I was just doing it on my phone. It is a good idea, just need to get it sorted out better.

    Does the USB cable have to be plugged in?

    I'm not a mac user but am curious about this program because it seems like it should be simple since the icon arrangent is right there in tge plist and I'm surprised there aren't versions for other operating systems yet.

    I've found clients using the webdav protocol to be good for working on the iphone's file system.

    For those of us who use Categories (since the iTunes version doesn't display the icons which are inside the folders correctly), Movement has just been updated to 1.4 to work with 3.1 firmware.

    It displays Five Icon Dock correctly and doesn't show the icons hidden in folders the way the iTunes version shows them scrambled all over vacant locations on every open page.
