iPod customization on the iPhone

I’d been using my iPhone for months before I discovered this: you can customize the toolbar at the bottom of the iPod application screen.

Since I listen to a lot podcasts, I wanted that to be one of the items in the toolbar. I had been using a two-step process to get to my list of podcasts:

  1. Tap the More button in the toolbar.
  2. Choose Podcasts from the list.

Once, when I was in the middle of doing this, I noticed the Edit button at the top of the More screen.

When I clicked it, I was taken to this screen:

Here, you can drag any of the category icons in the upper part down into the toolbar, replacing whatever you drag it onto (you can’t drag it onto More, of course). I can’t remember what I replaced with Podcasts--Albums, maybe?

In any event, a simple thing, but I didn’t know about it for a long time.
