A jailbreak tweak that allows users to pack more application icons per page called More Icons
, 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.
