When I compare my iPhone 4S to my friend's iPhone 5, I notice that his elongated screen gives him an extra row of applications. Am I jealous? Yes, a little.
Unfortunately, we can't alter the physical form of our device, but we can tweak our icon layout to add more apps snugly together on our home screens using a mod from Cydia.
Head on over to your pre-installed Cydia application, then search and download the free Five-Column SpringBoard tweak.
After you installed it properly, go into your Settings application and scroll down until you see the Five-Column SpringBoard options. From here, you will enable the tweak and wait for your device to restart.
You're now ready to squeeze in some extra apps on your home screen. The apps have an overlaying-look, so until the icon resizing tweak is patched over for iOS 7, you'll have to deal with this, but I actually like it.
