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?
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?
It keeps happening where some icons become non responsive on one of my home screens. Not the main one usually the third one. The icons will not do anything when touched the only remedy i find is to restart the ipad2. any other way to get them to work?
Home Screen - Icons Are Larger - Seems A Bit Zoomed In
May 27, 2010
I am having trouble with my iPad. Need help. My screen seems to be doing an "auto-zoom / auto-focus" and I can't seem to get the screen stay "un zoomed". I can't see the entire virtual keyboard as well because of this "phenomenon" Going into a meeting shortly and have a presentation using iPad...
I have an iPad 1st generation running OS 4.3.2 (Jailbroken). It is running perfectly, except that I have a bunch of blank icons on my home screen (see the attached images). I can delete them, but every time I install a new app from the apple store, they come back.
Looking for some help in getting my Ipad icons back to normal size..For some reason the home screen on my ipad has really large Icons. There is possibly 1.5 icons on the screen and I am unable to get the icons back to normal size..Is there a way to easily make them smaller.I have tried to shrink the screen size without any success
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
Feb 18, 2010
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: http://www.appleinsider.com/articles..._features.html 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.
General :: IPad Half Home Screen Icons Are Showing
Mar 9, 2014
My home screen is now only half the width of my screen and only half of the icons are showing. I can't get to mail, safari, and several others. I try to scroll the screen to get the rest and it won't scroll. I've checked out the settings but I didn't see anything that would control a half screen. I can't scroll vertically or horizontally.
IPad :: How To Connect With IMac And Rearrange Home Screen Icons
Nov 7, 2014
Using iTunes 12.0 for mac, is there no way to connect the iPad and rearrange the home screen icons? Did they remove this ability? It's really annoying to move apps one at a time on the iPad and with no ability to just add a page between pages on the iPad.
