[ux] customize number of icons app grid

Hey everyone,

I request for more customization of the interface, in detail the number of icons in a row of the appgrid.

as we get bigger and bigger screens 4 icons in a row looks absolutely aweful (+ my eyes are not really able to handle that sized icons)

I used to use patchmanager with the launcher combined patch and this worked for me such a long time (i have it on my still on sf 1 ux/ui which is best in my eyes, even there i used 5 icons in a row - and my still on sf 2 Xperia X, also with five Icons per row).

Yesterday I managed to flash sf v 3.1 on my brand new xa2 and because of obvious reasons I wanted to install that patch which is currently not possible. I need to hope the guy that wrote the patch does an upgrade for me (and others) but it feels wrong to not have this implemented. I mean it can not be that hard to do and more customization helps in the community i guess since most of us are used to some customization.

Please implement this (and more options - e.g. eventsview by swipe up or customizable, quick lock gesture, double tap to wake up - even the Xperia x way of doin it with mce-tools did not work and more features the sf1 ui gave us) for customization for us.

If you only need more icons in row, UI Themer(openrepos) can change icon size. On my XA2 icon size 108 gives six icons in row. Plus display density setting adjust font size in UI overall.

thank you for the hint. no its not just this but if we have a request we should only ask for one thing. i want it native but the themer does what i want and additionally it modifies the number of icobs in a row of the browser which is something i missed until now. nice to have such mods :)
