Shrink is a new application available in Cydia that lets you size down your iPhone icons in order to fit more on the screen. Well, at least that’s what it says in the description as I was not able to fit more than 4 icons per row, but I might be missing something.

After installing Shrink from Cydia, simply go to your Settings.app. From there, you can reduce the size of your iPhone icons to up to 25% of the actual size (see screenshot).

The good thing is that Shrink is fully compatible with WinterBoard and InfiniDock. The downside is that it also shrinks your badges, making it almost impossible to see how many unread emails you have, for example.

All in all, I think Shrink does a pretty good job at reducing the size your icons, if that’s what you’re looking for. If not, then save yourself $0.99, which is the price to download Shrink in Cydia.

Have you tried Shrink? What do you think about it?

  • Or get a theme with Icons that are smaller, I have the 5-Column hack and inifidock with 8 icons.
    I use Illumine theme, and it has the perfect size icons for that. 🙂
    See this screenshot.

    I tried to also use the 5-Row hack, but that is too cluttered, since the text won’t fit correctly.

    There is also shrink/grow if you won’t to make apps bigger . But if you won’t more on your screen down load five rows / five collums then use shrink to get a bit of spacing. All in all it’s not that good
