    Does a bit more than Shrink or Bigify but it replicates some functions of other tweaks.

    May not be worth the price for some. But I bought it anyway.

    It's a pretty cruddy\buggy attempt at resizing icons. When I use Reform, the app\folder name doesn't center and line up with the folder. The icons in the folders in the folder preview icons are off so they are cut off, and it's just not a great solution.

    I REALLY wish one of the trusty apps (Springtomize, Bigify, or Shrink) would update. They've always been so reliable. I don't recommend anyone spend the $2.99 on Reform, it's buggy as heck right now, and until they either fix the major bugs, or one of the other tweaks come out, save your money. I regret buying it.

    That's too bad. I'm not seeing that at all, but only because I turn labels off (I don't care for them). I'd probably be echoing your opinion if I was using them though.

    I'm using it without issue. To be perfectly fair and reasonable though, I don't use any folders whatsoever- thus that bug isn't known to me.

    I have an iPhone6S with Upscale installed, using the 6S+ resolution. Coupled that with the ZOOM feature on the iPhone 6S enabled, and now resizing with Reform gives me image sharp icons that are the correct size.

    Rose Gold iPhone6S with the above listed tweaks and modifications:

    You have the stock icon layout, and you have no folders showing, so of course yours wouldn't have the issue. LOL

    It's like saying my car runs fine, I don't know what's wrong with yours, when you have a stock toyota and mine's tricked out. LOL.

    Here's a screen shot in case anyone wants to see what I'm referring to...

    EDIT: upon looking at my own screen shot, I notice it only appears to affect the left-justification of the text on folders, and of course the icon previews within the folders are just a mess.

    I responded the way I did, with an obvious observation only due to you stating, "it's a cruddy/buggy attempt at resizing icons." while that simply isn't true.
    Your bug/issue with folders although valid doesn't negate the worth of this tweak for many of us.
    Plain and simple: if one isn't using folders this tweak is not a cruddy/buggy way of resizing icons.

    Reform just updated to include a variety of fixes, including the issue brought up in this thread.

    Can you change the distance icons are from each other? ie: fit more icons on screen if you make them smaller?

    That's a different tweak. For folders, you want FolderEnhancer. For icons, you'll have to settle for betterFiveColumnHomescreen and betterFiveIconDock (or the 6 icon dock tweak that's out there) OR the hacked version of Springtomize that works on iOS 9.

    Personally, I'm waiting on More Icons to be updated. It works on both the dock and the springboard and allows you to see (within limits) what you want.

    Unfortunately, I've heard no news on More Icons yet.

    What use is there in shrinking icons if you can't fit more on screen? Just curious. Thanks for the other suggestions, I'm playing around with folderEnhancer, looks cool.

    For me it's because I don't like the size of the stock icons. I prefer them to be smaller. I also like to fit seven on my homescreens, but until More Icons is updated I can't do that.

    Iconoclasm allows more icons per row and various other layouts you can download or customize.

    Fixed - Folder icons showing all screwed up.

    NOT Fixed - The out of alignment of the names under the folder.

    I say it's buggy. If it's primary objective is to fix one aspect in iOS (shrink folders and icons), and it screws up two (buggy folder icons and mis-aligned text below folders and icons), it's still "buggy" in my mind.

    We're not talking about a 99 cent tweak, we're talking about a THREE DOLLAR tweak. Sure that's still not much, but given what it does, it's a high cost vs many others I've paid for. I don't expect it to screw up more than it benefits. LOL

    I do wish there was a way to increase the size of the icons too! Shrinking is one thing, yet on an iPhone5 I'd like to see them at 105%.

    New update today broke even more. Text is back to center but now the folder icons don't resize. Ugh. Not very well tested. :-(

    Ugh it gets worse and worse... now when I unlock my phone, icons are randomly out of line. This update was a mess!

    Broke Badge Customiser. My badges went back to red instead of the black.

    Just uninstalled it. Not worth it at this point.

    Agreed. Wish shrink or bigify or springtomize would update. Never had any of these issues with those.

    It works amazingly well as always. I want my money back from the garbage Reform. Biggest pile of junk ever.
