    Did this last night. It helps a lot.

    Only hassle is adding new apps will plug the holes, and it is a pain to maintain.

    It's a novel idea, but sure takes a bit of maintenance

    The hour you save using the watch will be used maintaining this. And then some. Cute though.

    For some reason I can't get mine to form arms like that... it always "collapses" the icons so any stretch is 2 wide. Not sure what I am doing wrong...

    Oh sure, it is a time suck. For me it is about minimising the number of frustrating wrong app presses.

    This part of the interface is surprisingly sucky for an Apple product.

    Am I the only one who doesn't have trouble tapping the icons, even without zooming in?

    Threads like this only reinforce that Apple blew it on this honeycomb UI.

    How do you get the gap in the circles? My apps just collapse inwards and it's annoying me. To be fair, I've still not figured out the perfect app layout on my phone so this is just going to make my brain hurt even more.

    Always good to see suggestions for ways of doing this. Personally I think a purely scientific approach isn't quite right as it doesn't take into account an individual's own sense of navigation. Some people will simply prefer different methods of moving around and categorising etc, so best to experiment and find what suits you, even if it doesn't make total sense!
