Amusing Photo

I was in Minneapolis and flying Northwest airlines to San Francisco with a connection through Seattle. I was waiting in line at the gate to talk to the airline rep. And behind her is this large screen displaying flight information...which looks pretty nice and doesn't show any hints of any OS platform. But suddenly it was clear what platform it runs on when the dreaded Application Error dialog appeared. I pointed it out to them and they clicked on OK, but it kept coming back.

They don't run XP in the cockpit do they?

Move those icons!

Hey AppMarks fans,

We've released some great new changes today.

  • Moving Icons: You've been able to rearrange icons on your computer and sync those changes to your phone for awhile now, but many of you wanted to be able to move icons from convenience of your iPhone. Well, now you can! The real difficulty was figuring out the best interface for rearranging icons given that iPhone Safari doesn't support drag and drop in web pages. After much testing and research, we've come up with a solution that's quicker and easier to use than the "swapping" techniques commonly used. Give it a spin and let us know what you think.
  • Faster loading (again): We've made further improvements to decrease load times over EDGE and make the application more responsive during loading.
  • New Menus: You'll notice a new look and layout to our menus. The existing menu layout became cumbersome as we added more features. While existing users might need a little time to reorient themselves, the new layout will be easier for new users and more intuitive for everyone in the long run.
  • Instructions: To make AppMarks more user-friendly, we've added brief instructions in the AppMarks title bar to help you while you're editing, deleting, or moving icons.

As always, we love your feedback so keep those emails coming to info [at]
