    I love 5 column springboard on my iphone, but I want to make the icons tighter together on my ipad (JB'd 3.2.2), and wondering if there's any way to do it to increase the number of apps on the screen. having the factory default with so much space between icons makes the resolution look even more primitive so it'd be nice to get more icons to fit on the screen.

    ideas?

    I would like this swell but i have a feeling that because the iPad has different apps per row depending on whether it's horizontal or vertical I don't know if theres anything on cydia that could work with it

    yeah that's why I didn't want to try installing five column springboard or infiniboard and risk screwing something up. I figured I'd leave it to the experts here for advice and hopefully someone has a way. When 4.2 comes out and we have folders (native), something to carry me over would be nice.

    Check out Iconoclasm from cydia. Not free unfortunately.

    Nice, got iconoclasm and it was EXACTLY what I wanted. Well worth the couple bucks... this was my #1 complaint about the iPad... why have a huge screen and have to scroll through 10 screens to find apps? This made it so I can fit ALL my apps on one screen now. In my mind the iPad just got 100x more useful!

    I set my iconoclasm up for 5x5, no more apps moving around when I switch orientations :D
