    Default [Giveaway] Organize Your Settings With Preference Folders!

    Jailbreak Stuff holds all of my jailbreak settings. You can make a folder for any of the settings though.

    This jailbreak tweak is dubbed Preference Folders and it's really neat! When you are an avid jailbreaker, chances are that you have a lot of jailbreak tweaks installed and that means that the settings for all of them can add up astoundingly quick. The more that you have, obviously the longer you will need to scroll to find what you are looking for this can be extremely cumbersome. Albeit cumbersome, jailbreak developer iSam has come up with a way to organize your settings into folders. You can organize anything, not just jailbreak tweaks. You can even put all of your favorite settings into one folder so that they are easier to get to. For example, all of the toggles that you have in SBSettings, you could put the Settings version into a folder in the Settings application so that they're easier to find.

    Once opening the Settings application after installing Preference Folders, you will see a cell named Preference Folders and tapping on that cell, like any other cell, brings up the settings for you. The settings for Preference folders are as simple as they are elegant:



    Basically, you can make as many folders as you want. Just tap new folder, then you can go into that new folder, choose the settings that you want in it, then you can name it whatever you want. When you apply the changes, your settings folder will appear like the first image that I put in this article which shows the, "Jailbreak Stuff" folder that I made using Preference Folders. Again, you can put anything you want into the folders, it doesn't need to be jailbreak stuff. You can put the network settings, the individual application settings, the jailbreak settings, or the sound settings, or anything else you can find into a folder. You can mix and match them as well.

    When you go to make a folder, you will be asked to select the settings to put into the folder. Since I chose to make it out of all of my jailbreak stuff, when I open the, "Jailbreak Stuff" folder, it will show all of my jailbreak tweaks inside of it:



    This is a pretty cool tweaks and I have to say, props to iSam for the idea!

    For years i have wanted something like this, so when i saw it in Cydia, i jumped on it right away! I only wish that one could have the option to put a little icon on the left of the text like other jailbreak tweaks/ except for just having the words "jailbreak stuff" in the cell

    Its easier to just pay the $2.00 USD than to jump through all of the hoops to enter your contest. I mean really? follow 2 people on twitter, find your cydia number, make that available to the public, mention your name as well as a required message? Really!

    You're serious? It takes no more than 3 minutes. I've entered 4 of his giveaways so far. And there's not a whole lot people can do with your cydia number

    True but if you 'jump through the hoops,' you have a chance to get it free. Which is always nice.

    Another great tweak, and at a decent price. Seem to be rare these days.

    Easier? Maybe. But what are you doing right now that you can't enter the contest. I am sitting at work bored off my mind.

    Relax bro were just giving our opinions as well. I hope you were not offended because that wasn't my intention and I'm sure nobody else's.
