    Idiot question about moving apps

    So glad to find this forum. I have some reading to do!

    I just upgraded from a Backflip to the Atrix. OMG. Loving it! However, I am used to just dragging and dropping apps from screen to screen. Will someone tell me the new secret???? AAaaarrrggghhh!I'm getting ready to say some bad words.

    Nothing has changed in that regards. If you want an app from your app drawer to the main screen just long press and it will auto automatically will pass it to the other screen. Just make sure you go first to the screen you want it before heading to the app drawer. Otherwise you will have to drag it across screens. If you want a widget just long press in the screen you want it and a menu will pop up. Them just scroll to what you want and follow the directions.


    Oh! Welcome!

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, when I hold down on the app to drag it, it highlights, but then when I try to drag it, it will move but it won't drag over to the next screen. Does that make sense?

    Drag as the app as far over as you can to which ever side you are trying to move the app and some arrows should show up. Hold it there for a moment and it should move over to the next screen.

    Yeah, as Ghost said, you have to get it all of the way to the very side of the screen. Coming from the Backflip as well, I know you didn't have to get close to the edge, but you do on the Atrix. Get it all the way and hold it there for a sec and the screen should transition.
