Say hello to Folded, a new iOS jailbreak tweak for customizing folders
Unlike on Android where you can customize your home screen to suit your particular taste and preference, on iOS, the infamous app grid on the home screen is all you get. If you’d like a little more order, Folders. That is as far as customizations go on iOS.
Thankfully, the Jailbreak community has your back and thanks to a few tweaks, you can breathe new life into your boring old grid layout. We have looked at Gravitation on this platform, a fun new way to use your home screen.
A newly released Jailbreak tweak called Folded seeks to add a little flare to the way you organize and customize your folders on iOS. In its default settings, you can only drag and drop app icons into folders, rename the folder and move it around. That’s about all.
Folded brings a bunch of options, and new features to allow you to customize your folders as much as you can imagine. The extent to which you can customize folders with this tweak can be a little intimidating. That said, some of the options you get with Folded include:
– Custom layout in folders
– Custom folder insets/offsets (top, bottom, sides)
– Custom folder frame size
– Custom folder frame positioning
– Custom folder icons (different from in-folder layout)
– Resize the folder icon preview
– 2×2 folder icon
– Option to hide the folder icon grid
– Hide folder icon background
– Custom Folder Background (frame) Color
– Custom Folder Background (frame) Gradient
– Custom Folder View Color
– Custom wallpaper blur strength
– Custom dark/light blur background
– Hide title – Custom title font size
– Custom title font
– Custom title X Offset
– Custom title Y Offset
– Custom title font weight
– Custom title alignment
– Custom title color
– Custom folder frame blur alpha
– Custom folder corner radius
– Pinch to close
– Tap to close
– Hide dock and pages within folders
– Hide page dots in folders
– Hide all page dots
It is worth noting that the developer behind this little tweak is the same one that brought us tweaks like Cartella and Foldy. This could explain the level of customization that this new tweak, Folded, brings to the table.
To download this tweak on your jailbroken iOS device, you can grab it from Packix. As this is one of the early releases, expect some hiccups here and there. However, the developer promises regular updates and maintenance to Folded.
