  • Put More App Icons On Each Home Screen Page With 'More Icons'


    A jailbreak tweak that allows users to pack more application icons per page called More Icons by phoenix3200, is now available in Cydia's BigBoss repository with full support for the iPhone 5 and for iOS 6.1.

    Phoenix3200 just recently updated most of his other popular jailbreak tweaks for iOS 6.1 and the iPhone 5, however an ongoing bug in the private beta of More Icons delayed its public release. That bug is now gone, and the tweak works great for getting a ton of icons packed into that four-inch iPhone 5 display!

    In the screenshots above, we combined More Icons with a popular jailbreak tweak called Shrink to reduce the size of the application icons for a more preferred look. Shrink is sold separately.

    When you download More Icons, you will get access to a new preferences pane in the Settings application:



    From the preferences, you can adjust the number of rows of application icons and the number of columns of the application icons on the home screen. You’ll also be able to adjust the number of application icons on the dock, inside of folders, and in the App Switcher. You can adjust the number to be anywhere between 1 and 20. Obviously if you have stock-size application icons, you don't want to go too high with that number. When combined with Shrink, which can drastically reduce the size of your application icons, you can have tons of apps on just one page.

    You'll also find a slider in the preferences pane of More Icons so you can adjust the spacing between the application icons and the edge of the iOS device's display. Taking advantage of this feature will let you squeeze more applications on the display horizontally.

    The developer informs us that an update adding more spacing features is coming soon, including the ability to edit spacing between application icons and the top and bottom of the display, and the ability to edit the space between icons in the dock and App Switcher. Keep your eyes peeled for this update in the future!

    If you own Shrink, you can grab More Icons for just 99˘. Otherwise, new purchasers of More Icons that don't own Shrink can grab the tweak for $1.49.

      Is Iconoclasm even updated for iOS 6.1/iPhone 5?

      From what it looks like, Cydia is telling people that don't own Iconoclasm to upgrade to the new "More Icons" tweak that this piece is about:

      This looks nice but the main problem with it is Mobile Substraite is so unstable it crashes the iPhone a lot and when it does it will screw with this and you will be never ending setting it up the way you wait it then it will crash again and you will again loose the setup and have to start all over again.

      I had enough with these kind of customizations a few IOSs ago.

      When MS is stable which I doubt it ever will be then these kind of mods will be great.
      When things dont rely on MS thats when jailbreaking is really stable. As soon as MS is installed thats when the constant crashes start and when you start having problems.
      I said this when everything needed MS and now everything does need MS thats why jailbreaking is unstable.
      Its not the jailbreaking of the device its MS thats the problem. Go try it for yourself. Have a fresh device, jailbreak it, install anything you want BUT NOT MS and nothing that needs MS. Give it a week and you will see how nice and stable it is. install JUST MS and give it another week and count all the crashes. I bet you will have tons of crashes on the 2nd week and if your unlucky you will get 1 or 2 in the first week.

      I do not this MS is the issue. MS is just as stable as JBing. MS is the reason that when a tweak crashes u are able to restore/remove the tweak. MS has been around nearly as long as Cydia itself and Winterboard. Every tweak/mod has its issues but doubt by any means its MS. There would be no Cydia/any tweak at all w/o MS. DO SOME RESEARCH.

      I'm in the same boat as everyone else lol, don't really want to go installing things without confirmation of it working. My iPhone 5 is actually my everyday phone, last thing I need is instability or issues.

      More Icons is working perfectly on my iPhone 5, so I think I'll have to recommend it for iPhone 5 users. I know that phoenix3200 actually built it on the iPhone 5, so it seems a little more reputable.

      Bought both!

      I put more than 6 icons on the dock, and they all disappeared. I think 5 is the max.

      Does anybody really scale their icons more than 100%?

      Yes but even if u don't scale I think springtomize will allow up to 10 it does on my iPad I know for sure. Just checked springtomize will let u go 10x10 w 10 in the dock on iPhone 4s

      Springtomize doesn't allow more than five rows. ;-)
