    Default UnFolder - Better iDevice Folder Management


    Filippo Bigarella (@FilippoBiga, creator of SlideAway and other popular Cydia applications, is planning on releasing a new tweak very soon. Known as Unfolder, it adds better folder management to your iDevice. Currently in iOS, when you want to get rid of a folder, you have to move each application out one at a time. This is cumbersome and can be a pain especially if you have applications such as Infinifolders that increases the folder size capacity. With Unfolder, you're now able to delete an entire folder quickly and easily. From there the applications return to the empty space on the SpringBoard.

    There are no Settings to be configured and the tweak works extremely well. Below is a video demo of Unfolder:



    When it releases on Cydia, it will be completely free and open source. Follow Filippo on Twitter for more information regarding Unfolder and other developments by him.

    Name: UnFolder
    Author: FilippoBiga
    Price: Free

    ***EDIT*** If you're itching to have it before it is available on community repos (e.g. ModMyi), here's two options:

    Add Filippo's repo http://filippobiga.me/repo and install.
    Use this file and place via SSH.


    5/29/11 11:31 AM PST: UnFolder was approved from ModMyi is now availabe on the ModMyi repo.

    Very good idea. Not a thing I'd need daily, but I've certainly had more than one occasion where I wish we had this feature.

    CyDelete allows you to delete Cydia applications off of your SpringBoard, not folders...

    Now all we need is for MultiIconMover to be able to move folders.

    Edit: Unfolder doesn't work on my iPhone4 running iOS 4.3.3, I get the alert "Do I want to delete the bookmark xxxxx", but nothing happens after I tap "Delete" and the alert goes away.

    I agree about MultiIconMover needing to be able to move folders. Anyone know the dev to see if this is in the works?

    While this is nice, what I really need is a way to manage my iFolders OFF my iDevice.
    I'd like to use a computer, preferably Mac, to manage folders: move apps in & out of folders, move folders between iDevice 'pages', make backups of app/folder arrangements.

    Because it's smaller, it was probably easier to package. Saurik has been really swamped but he is doing his best. Continue to be patient .
