    Whenever I move a wiggling icon, everything else just shifts around too.
    Any way to create and opening in the order of icons and put a specific one in the opening without everything else shifting?

    Does anyone know how to disable this feature so that my 3 year old will quit deleting my apps when he tries to play games on it? Can it be set to only open after a longer time holding down the buttons… Or disable that feature and use iTunes to delete applications. I am spending hours reinstalling the apps my little one deletes by accident… It’s pretty bad when I have to ask my three year old to make a phone call.
