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] appmarks.com.

I am unable to access my appmarks account online, via Safari on my home Mac. Something is awry, please help. I am anxious to add new urls that aren't in the browse section and are too long to enter correctly or easily. Thanks.

I'm a new iPhone owner, and would love to get up and running with Appmarks. But I can't get past the acct setup screens. No issues getting to the point where I enter a user name, p-word twice and the code. But when I hit 'submit' nothing happens - Safari just freezes. I've tried a number of times and had the same outcome.

do i need to do anything else to make this work?

Hello John,

What version of Safari are you using? For best results, make sure you're using the latest verion of Safari 3 or Firefox.

If that doesn't resolve your issue, please email us at "info [at] appmarks [dot] com" and we'll help you resolve the issue.
