    I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to move ipod touch icon's anywhere on the page. For example you have 5 icons, and you put 2 on the very top and 3 on the very bottom, excluding the dock. Does anyone know of an app that will allow you to do this?

    Do you mean like putting 2 icons on the very top of the screen and then putting 4 icons above the dock??
    if so i don't think thats possible.... yet
    I've been looking for one of those too and so far no luck, but I do think that somebody might come up with an .app for that

    I know theres a way to do it because i've seen my friend do it before
    but its extremely complicated and my friend says that it took him about 2 or 3 hours a try (he tried over 10 times)
    Today Im going over his house because something is wrong with his pc (which is why Pc sux) and when im there ill ask him how to do that and post it tomorrow or tonight maybe

    you would need a blank app, that did nothing, and had no icon. That way you could make a space....

    hmm your "blank" way seems like a good but cumbersome idea.

    i can't say that ive tried it but here's what i suggest:

    *go to the apps folder and duplcate a small app (like bossprefs or something)
    *delete the "icon.png" from the app folder
    *if you have app-names displayed (you can just plain turn them off in SMBprefs) then you'll need to go into the strings file and delete the name string
    *duplicate your new app as many times as you want spaces




    there's something else that might work which i noticed once:

    * install heaps of apps you don't want from installer.app, then position them where you want spaces
    * uninstall those apps through installer.app
    * hey pronto - gaps! (just dont try respositioning things now)



    hope that helps

    except you want the blank spots non responsive, so they dont launch an app when you accidently touch them

    I was just elaborating on the gedankens of the dudes above me.



    Give my second method a go.



    Oh and don't be such a gimp criticising everyone else's posts for the sake of it

    Can't you just install arbitrary aps, put them where you want the spaces to be, then uninstall them?
