Add More App Icons To The Android Home Screen

Because I use a Nexus One that runs Android, I am always looking for new apps or better ways to use my phone.

The Multicon Widget provides a way to add more app icons and short cuts on the Android home screen by shrinking app icons, eliminating the icon text, and placing them on a grid.
