Resizing App Icons On Home Screen?

Just got my iPad 3G and personally think the icons are too small. Would rather have maybe three to a line, than four. Is there any way to resize the icons? I know there's an app that will do it called "Shrink" for the iPhone, but anything for the iPad?

Home Screen Without Icons
Is it possible to have no icons on the home screen (other than the dock), but have the apps start on page 2, or is it like the iPhone where it forces them back to the front screen ?

Home Screen - Only 12 Icons?
Is anyone else having trouble putting more than 12 app icons on their home screen. I can fill up subsequent screens with 20 apps (4 rows of 5), but when I go to add more than 12 on the home (first) page it will not let me drag an app icon onto the first page. This is quite bizarre or am I simply missing something?

IPad 2 Home Screen Icons Stuck In Top Left
I was playing angry birds then I quit and went to the main part of the home screen. But when I got there all of the preinstalled apps were in the top left. Intrestingly, they all worked fine, but I could position them anywhere (out of the usual restricted grid). The original icons in their original places were there, but I couldn't click on them. Although it is pretty awesome, the main home screen is pretty messy and I would like to know if there is any fix to it, since it isn't going by switching on and off etc.

Home Screen Icons - More SDK Hints At Widgets-URL-Dictionary Features
For those who are interested, Appleinsider is reporting that the iPad SDK contains some additional hints of future widget, URL, and dictionary features on the iPad: Quote:"Evidence for potential widgets One example is the iPhone's Contact app, which is internally called MobileAddressBook. In the new iPad SDK, it has morphed into an app referred to a LittleBrownBook. SpringBoard, which is the internal name of the app that runs the Home screen icons, uses the app tag "stand-alone-contacts" for this new app.
This suggests that there will also be a non-standalone version of Contacts, or in other words a desk accessory style widget to present contact information outside of the standalone Contacts app. Mac OS X similarly provides a contact browser that can be used in other apps in addition to the stand alone Address Book app.

Find All The Apps On IPad 1 Device When Some Icons Are Not In Folders Or On The Home Pages?
How do I find all the apps on iPad1 device when some icons are not in folders or on the home pages?I have downloaded about 500 apps from iStore. Some paid some free. On the iStore it says I have approx380 apps purchased. In the iPad Settings it says about 480.I'm sure there are more and when I search I can find some that don't appear anywhere on the desktop or in my folders? In the past faults have occurred where lots of the icons just dissappeared then reappeared 2 weeks later!?Is there a way to check for certain all the apps on the iPad and make sure they all appear on the desktop for use when needed?Also synching with an XP laptop seems to fail each time. I want to backup. All the apps to the pc in case the iPad fails or I buy a new one. How can I make sure this process works.

After Sync - Screen Had Enlarged And Some Icons And The Dock Were Off The Screen
Synched my Ipad 2 this morning to add some pictures and noticed while doing the synch my screen was too large. After the synch I noticed it was like the screen had enlarged and some icons and the dock were off the screen. Like I had changed the resolution. Scrolling through things, everything was like the physical Ipad2 screen was too small to show what you normally see.. Turned it off, back on and it immediately showed the correct screen view and then enlarged or expanded. I hope I made my self clear. What did I do?

Camera Connection Kit - Automatically Resizing Photos
When using the iPad Camera Connection Kit, do the photos automatically get resized?Here's why I am asking: I am considering using an iPad in the field with my work. As a disaster restoration company, I walk into a clients home and take photos of damage. I would like to upload photos to the ipad directly from the camera, then using a template in Numbers, add those photos into a report, to be uploaded to the internet and emailed to the adjuster. Ideally, this would all happen at the clients home, to speed up the process of restoring my customers homes to pre-existing damage.

Image Resizing - Default Photos Applications
One small feature I always disliked about the iPhone was it resizing any image to display on the iPhone at a lower resolution. I would have always liked the ability to save high resolution images and just be able to zoom into them but it's not possible in the default Photos app.So maybe people who've played with the iPad Simulator would be able to answer my question. Does the iPad do the same function? Or with it being a more powerful device then the iPhone can it handle the higher resolution?

Similar App More Icons On The Screen?
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.

Icons Allowed On First Screen?
I currently have 15 icons on my first screen (page). In portrait mode I have the bottom row open plus one more. Even in landscape mode it appears I have the bottom row free.

I am wanting to move a few icons from the 2nd page to the first but I am unable to.

Any idea why I am not able to move any more icons to the first page?

Scaling Icons On Screen?
One thing that came in handy on my PC was the ability to increase the size of icons on a high res screen. It also was nice on the Archos 9 to do the same, simply to make the icon targets easier to hit.

First, can anyone tell me if the same is possible on an imac or other OS-X computer?

Secondly, since there is plenty of room around the icon on the ipad screen, does anyone know if they can be enlarged (scaled up)?

Screen Unresponsive With Boxes Around Icons?
OK so I was browsing some photos in my iPad (Current Gen) on the 500px photo app. The app became unresponsive and was missing buttoms normally there, so I clicked the home button and got to the home screen. Once I did this, I was unable to scroll between my home screens. Every time I touch the screen, a rectangular box appears the app nearest to where I am touching. If I touch an app, it will not open, I can barely get in to settings. I plugged in to itunes and did a restore but it did the same thing. I powered it off and on a few times and the same things happens. When I touch the slide to unlock, a rectangular box displays around the slide to unlock and it takes several swipes before responding. This rectanuglar box floats around and it takes 20 clicks to get in to settings.

App Toolbar / Icons And Buttons Get Blurred On Screen
I just recently discovered that if I use safari a lot, the URL bar and alle the static buttons get blurred into the screen when I leave safari. So I decided to se if this only was safari. I opens sketchbook, filled out the background color to dark grey and waited for 5 min. After those 5min I rotated the screen 180 degrees. Just as I thought, the icons and so on from the toolbar in sketchbook, were blurred into the bottom (previous top) of the screen.
