    Hi,

    I dont know if somebody could make this but it would be handy.

    The idea:

    That you can scroll (Right and left) through folders ...

    Like this :

    In this way folders could have unlimited icons! So I can put all my games in just one folder..

    I would really appreciate it if someone could make a mod like this!

    Thanks for reading this!

    im not sure if this is possible or not as I dont have a jailbroken ios4 device but have you tried to install the five column springboard to see if it will allow you to have 5 columns, if it does then it should do the same in folder as it is part of the springboard not a separate program

    So instead of the 12 limit it will be a 15 limit

    It would make far more sense to scroll down, you wouldn't have to scroll as far to find something you wanted. 12 on screen at a time instead of 4

    no its like this : (the X's are the apps on page 1 and O on page 2)

    X X X X ------------------------------------ O O O O
    X X X X --Scroll to next page of the folder => O O O O
    X X X X ------------------------------------ O O O O

    So it doesnt care if you scroll down or to the right. But it would be nice if both options are available!!!

    You cant put 12 icons in one folder so..

    I was thinking the same thing, would have thought apple would have done thise anyway, 12 apps per folder is pathetic, the whole point of the folders was to organise so there is less of a jumble of a load of apps... now there is just a load folders instead D;

    I think scrolling up and down would make more sense. I was surprised after getting 4.0 on my phone and finding I could only get 12 apps in a folder. I expected to be able to throw all my games in one folder, but I have to make like six.

    Would be better if both options are available Like

    1 : Scroll left and right
    2 : Scroll up and down
    3 : Scroll left/right and up/down
