Lifehacker reader dka97 used a custom grid and a few other tweaks to make his iPhone home screen easier to browse. Here's how to put it together.
For this home screen, you'll need a few tools. All are available in Cydia unless otherwise noted:
- Lock Screen: The LS Lyra lock screen theme (not shown)
- Icons: Ayecon icon theme
- Springtomize, which changes the grid layout, removes app labels, and more
- This wallpaper
dka97 explains the setup:
Here is my home screen on my iPhone 4. The LS Lyra lock screen gives you the current weather temp and more, which is handy. I changed the icon row number in Springtomize to a lower number, and also removed the app names with Springtomize as well. I found that visual memory helps me browse through apps quicker than names. I also changed the icon and dock size to varying percentages to give more depth.
