  • FolderEnhancer Released: Get The Most Out Of Your Folders
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pCRh7gcAOs]YouTube - FolderEnhancer - Preview[/ame]

    FolderEnhancer, developed by ashikase, has been an app many of us have been looking forward to. This tweak improves on the native folders in iOS 4 creating a much more logical solution for organizing and accessing your apps.

    Here is a quick overview of some of the features included in FolderEnhancer:
    • Open folders faster.
    • Add up to 320 icons to a folder (20 pages, 16 per page).
    • Create folders inside of folders.
    • Create folders on the dock.
    • Supports Iconoclasm for custom layouts inside of folders.
    • Extends MultiIconMover to allow moving multiple icons into/out of folders.
    • Options include hiding the folder name and wallpaper, as well as disabling animations.

    Available in Cydia for $1.99, previous CategoriesSB customers can grab the upgrade for $0.99. The price will apparently increase come November, so grab it now while it's only $1.99!

    *Not yet compatible with iOS 4.1

If the animation was kept the same, but still have the functionality of quick folder launch i'd def keep it. But, it is definitely a good enhancer, just not for me.
      I agree! I wish it was an option to keep original folder animation.

      I dont mind the way the animation is different from the stock animation. To me its just another characteristic of a jailbroken iphone. Its ok to be different.

      It scrolls without ifinifolders. I took Infinifolders out b4 installing F/Enhancer & I advise you do the same. I'm sure it's not good having two extensions ossociated with different programs attempting to achieve similar results. Even though F/Enhancer is much better they have some similar functions wich nmay cause problems. Anayway just my opinion, you'll do what you want anyway. Haaaa
      Good luck anyway matey.

      Definitely a great first release. Like others I would love to see the folder size when opened correspond to the number of apps as well as vertical scrolling. It would also be nice if it could implement custom folder icons. Overall great first release!

      This is how Apple should have done it! It's so much better than the crap they call folders.

      I really like how you can turn off the folder BG and how it pages horizontally like the Springboard.

      One small thing I would like to see in a later version, though, is the ability to turn off support for iconoclasm... I finally got "Five Icon Folders", but it's too crowded, and I had to turn iconoclasm off.

      I hesitated buying this because I wanted to try a demo first, but I decided to pay the $1.99. I am extremely pleased with this purchase! This works great on my iPhone 4, especially with multiiconmover! So far it is flawless. If you can't decide if you should get it, just do it! You won't be sorry!

      Works perfectly on an i4. I like scrolling sideways, so the loss of Infinifolders is no biggie. (I buy 'em, I use 'em, sometimes I uninstall 'em.) Would like GripLock to work, but understand they are working on that. For two buck, great deal.

      I bought and installed this yesterday. It uninstalled infinifolders during installation and then some of my folders with a large number of apps (e.g. games) would not scroll/page and I couldn't access all the apps. Was afraid I was hosed, but uninstalled folderenhancer and reinstalled infinifolders and all is well. Do I need to remove all apps from my infinifolders and uninstall it before installing folderenhancer? That will be a real pain but don't wan't to mess things up.

      Works awesome!!

      Note: If you currently have infinifolders installed and have more than 16 apps in 1 folder you have to do one of 2 things.

      First you can just take the apps out of the folders. Which can take a bit depending on how many u have. and then uninstall infinifolders and install folder enhancer.

      Or you can just uninstall infinifolders and install folder enhancer. now you have to go into sbsettings and then system options > hide icons. Just hide a random app and then exit out > respring, then all the apps that were in folders that had more that 16 apps will show outside of the folders and u can move them back in.

      As you move apps back into the folder and go above 16 apps just slide it over to a next page and your apps will be there compared to being vertical like inifinifolders.

      Hope this helps!

      Just uninstall infinifolders, your phone will thank you

      Update for both FE and GridLock. Works fairly well, though I find that sometimes icons go "missing" until I do a respring. Will keep playing with it. Haven't tried anything with IF, as I like the side scroll more then the up and down scroll.
