  • 'EasyIconEdit' Lets You Move Multiple Home Screen App Icons At Once


    It can be a real pain trying to move each application icon on your home screen one by one to get that perfect home screen setup. If you have ever wanted to make it easier on yourself to move multiple application icons on the home screen to different pages at once, then you should check out a new free jailbreak tweak called EasyIconEdit by iOS developer DDT.

    With EasyIconEdit, you can move more than one application icon on your home screen to a different home screen page at once. To use the tweak, you put your iOS device into jiggle mode, and then start tapping on application icons. As you tap on the application icons, a green highlight will surround them and they will stop jiggling, as shown above.

    After you have a number of applications with the green highlight under them, you can move to a different page of the home screen and the application icons will follow you to the new page. You can then start tapping on the application icons that moved with your page swipe to introduce them to the new page.

    The way the tweak works makes it very easy for you to move multiple application icons between multiple home screen pages without having to use as much time and effort as you usually would with the stock method of moving application icons.

    EasyIconEdit is very similar to MultiIconMover. They accomplish the same task, however the way the application icons are moved from page to page are somewhat different. The tweak doesn't come with any options to configure. If you want to give EasyIconEdit a try, you will find it in Cydia's BigBoss repository at no cost.

      Sounds like MultiIconMover, a tried and tested tweak that has existed for years and that we know plays nicely with just about every other tweak out there.

      I installed this tweak but it wasn't working. I'm glad I ended up coming to this thread because I would've never learned about multiiconmover had I not.

      Except for moving apps onto a blank new page of folderenhancer.

      Actually, it works just fine for that. Due to the fact that easy icon edit was not working for me, I installed the alternate tweak.

      The very first thing I did was move a large group of apps onto a separate blank page within folder enhancer

      Looks similar to multiiconmover but I don't like the [UIColor greenColor]; background with the icons, maybe a green glow would be better (UIShadow or Quartz).
