The icons on the Samsung Galaxy S3 have large gaps between them, enough so that if they were moved closer together you could fit at least one more row and maybe one more column. Is there a way to change this?

This is what it looks like:

AFAIK there's no built-in method to achieve that personalization.

I would go with Apex Launcher by Android Does available from Google Play Store, to use with Android 4.0+, it's free and among the features you'll find:

  • Customizable homescreens and grid size
  • Scrollable dock
  • Infinite & elastic scrolling
  • Customizable app and folder icons
  • Multiple drawer styles
  • Drawer apps sorting
  • Hide apps from the drawer
  • Enjoy homescreen gestures
  • Backup/restore settings and data

Other features can be found if you go PRO.

  • Duh, I didn't think to look into the settings for the custom launcher. I use Go Launcher and it does this a little bit too (albeit not as well as APEX). Thanks! Aug 6, 2012 at 16:04
  • I accepted this a couple of days ago, I don't know why it didn't stick... oh well, accepted again. Aug 8, 2012 at 16:17
