    How To Fully Customize iOS Home Screen App Icon Grid On iPhone

    Advertisement



    --- from Ben Reid of Redmond Pie


    The appearance of the iOS home screen has remained very archetypal since the first iPhone was showcased by Steve Jobs back in 2007. The icons sit in rows of four, and even though the iPhone 5 allowed for an extra row courtesy of its larger display, iDevice users could be forgiven for finding the unchanged look somewhat bland. The lack of any real native customization with iOS has seen jailbreak theming thrive, and although Springtomize 2 and Iconoclasm are seen as the go-to utilities when meddling with the home screen icons, the inherently easy-to-useCustomGrid is back for another outing as CustomGrid 2 (iOS 6+).


    Unlike Iconoclasm, which requires you to download layouts before selecting them within the app, CustomGrid has always lived up to its name in allowing jailbreakers to alter the arrangement of icons in a much more there and then fashion. CustomGrid 2 (iOS 6+) is no different, and if you’ve become tired of the same look, you can easily change the arrangement to better suit your requirements.





    The sorting of icons, while generally considered a change for the purpose of vanity, can actually also have some practical uses. If you can cram all of your favorite apps on the first page, for example, the need for incessant scrolling is lessened, and you will, as a result, get things done just that little bit quicker.


    Whether you’re in pursuit of minimalism or busyness, CustomGrid 2 ensures you can have your icons exactly the way you want them, and not constrained by Apple’s restrictive nature. Not only does it work with the home screen, but also the dock and app switcher, and although it is not yet compatible with Infinidock, it does work with the likes of Springtomize, Infiniboard, and SBRotator.






    All of your options can be configured within the native Settings app, and having been a long time user of Iconoclasm, I have to say that, at least on iOS 6, CustomGrid 2 should be considered the go-to tweak.


    It’s available right now over at the BigBoss repository for the small cost of $0.99, and considering the vast amount of features it offers, that’s a very agreeable price indeed.

    I didn't thought so either.
