    Default Moving Icons

    Is there a way to get the icons on the screen from always auto arranging? I have a picture as my background and I would like to have the icons moved around so I can look at the picture and not the icons all the time

    Nope! Most annoying. Of course you can auto arrange the entire device via settings. Failing that you could connect to iTunes and then sort them accordingly easier...

    There are a couple of apps that offer "blank" icons so that you can arrange your icons the way you want. If you search in the apps forum, you should find them.

    But they will always form a grid, top to bottom, left to right - one can't have two rows of icons at the bottom of a screen without a jailbreak...

    I got curious again and went looking. Here's what I found:




    Haven't checked to see if they're still working, but I don't see why they wouldn't be.
