    Iphone has an app called springboard that allows 5 applications per row per screen. Does android have one like this? Just seems like a lot of wasted space between apps.

    There's an app called "More Icons" that allows you to put up to 64 apps on one screen ;) the icons are really small but its no different to me than hitting a letter on the keyboard. it took time to adjust but now i can't go without it :D

    Yeah the More Icons widgets are nice. You can put 3 icons into the space of 1 or 7 into the space of 2 or 15 into the space of 4. I thought it would be hard to press on them since they are so much smaller but I've had no problems. :)

    Just installed the More Icons App (free version) and even though it's pretty simple, honestly I'm torn on whether I like the clutter. I like the clean look of the spaced out larger icons. So for me, I'll be trying to decide if I want to go with form over function or the other way around.

    Agreed, just tried the free version, wanted to put a few of the Beautiful Weather widgets in one slot (Vibrate, Airplane and Silent) wouldnt let me... Deleted
    I did try having 4 contacts in one and it did look cluttered.

    Sorry if this was brought up before. I should have asked if there were any other apps that do this (my bad, I was in a hurry). I already looked at More Icons and didnt like it. The icons just get to small for me. Id like to just see a simple 5x5 icon arrangement instead of the 4x4 which seems so wasteful. Does the paid for version of More Apps let you do this? Are there any others that would give a simple 5x5?

    No, the paid version won't do that, I'm not aware of one that will. If you can deal with LOTS of configuring, it can be done with Sweeter Home I think. I don't know how to do it though lol

    Why would you try to use widgets in an app that was designed for icons??

    What I do with More Icons is to leave every second slot empty - and then have the second row alternate.

    I think this both looks nice and makes it very easy to click on the correct icon. Admittedly, you only get 8 icons rather than 16 in a row - but that is enough for me.

    The top row, for example, is the 8 x 2 More Icons widget.

    That looks pretty nice kiwi, how did you get rid of the little config 'gear' icon?

    I think the paid for version lets you do that if I'm not mistaken.

    I have to agree that is much better.
