The Android Market offers a free Multicon Widget app. It shrinks all your apps that you have on your display screen, so you can have all your favorite apps right there. I know my htc thunderbolt, I can fit about five apps under the clock that takes up the hole screen. Once downloaded you can edit how you want it to look, very useful app.
It will allow you to fit 4 icons in the 1×1 space that normally only allows one icon.
There are no ads and its free so a big thank you to H9kDroid. Hope you enjoy.
