Another way to move between iPhone 1.1.3 app pages iOS devices
With the new iPhone 1.1.3 update, Everyone likes the ability to have multiplehome pages which will hold more icons. It is a sure sign that new programming will have new places to add icons.

Everyone knows that you simply "flick" the screen to the left or right to move from one home screen to the next. What Apple didn't say was that there is an easier way to do this. As you add additional home pages to the iPhone, multiple dots start appearing just above the icon dock that by default displays the main functions of the iPhone (Phone, Mail, Safari, iPod). You can easily move from one home (or Springboard) screen by simply touching the area to the left or right of those white dots.

That's it, no more flicking the screen right or left to move to the next screen. Just touch the active area to the right or left of the row of dots, and the screen instantly changes. Of course this won't work if you don't have multiple screens created.

This is the same interface as the weather app. I'm pretty sure tapping on the dots was documented when the iPhone first came out.

I guess its always nice to have options, personally I don't get what is so wrong with a flick. Much easier "Target" to hit with your finger than the small active area by the dots.

Apparently we can submit this as a "new" hint every time a new page makes use of this feature.

Blimey! what a relief - the flicking was such hard work and so much more complicated than just pressing!
It's good to know that i wont have to go to all that trouble anymore.
