I don't have an iPhone, but I really like the iPod Touch and i'm about to get one shortly. from playing with the iphone at the store, and watching the videos on the apple site, i haven't seen anything that shows how to add shortcuts to the home screen. there's a big empty all over the ipod touch screen, and i could think of a few useful links to put up there. i'm mostly buying this for a business tool for the audio and the wi-fi, (ooh... i just thought of how i could use the video... rock on!! more profits!) sorry... drifted off.

so can you add links or anything to the main screen? i know it's only one or two more clicks to get somewhere, but that instant touch would be AMAZINGLY AWESOMELY effective!! either way i'm still buying one

The only thing you can add are third-party applications. You can't put things like a URL or a link to your Contacts.

nuts... i'm looking at the Map button on the iphone, and the weather button... and a few other business url's that would be nice to bounce to quickly from the main screen while travelling. any way to code it into there? dumb question, i can't even write applescript...

Oh, you're talking about the Touch now. In that case, disregard my third-party applications comment...for now.

Unfortunately, the Touch doesn't come with a Weather app or Google Maps, which is why you can't see them on the Home screen. However, the operating system looks to be nearly identical to that of the iPhone, so I can imagine the apps being ported over in no time.

Sorry, can't help you with the programming.
