    Default 'No More Folders' Makes Folders Nearly Invisible


    If you donít like the look of the iOS folders, or you just want to make them invisible, then a new jailbreak tweak called No More Folders may be what youíre looking for.

    As shown above, the tweak hides your folder background, background shadow, and application icon grid from view, so that all you see is the folder name. Depending on how you organize your home screen on your iOS device, this could make for a emptier look on certain pages if you put all of your folders on the last page or somewhere in between, and could make it easier to see your wallpaper. It could also compliment certain themes.

    Even though the tweak makes your folders almost invisible, you can still tap on what appears to be an empty space with a label to open up the folder and view its contents:



    No More Folders doesn't have any options to configure. If you would like to give the tweak a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for free. No More Folders is compatible with iOS devices running iOS 6.0 or later.

    Name: No More Folders
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 6.0+
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: hiroshit

    Cuz even the beta FolderIcons for iOS 6 makes folder opening slow as hell. And default folders (even themed) are all the same & fugly. You could use this and paste yet wished for folder icons right on teh wallpaper for theming winz

    lol, now theres an empty slot which just throws off the look of the icons already lined up.. and not to mention, the title of the folder still appears.. its just a pointless tweak in my opinion

    That would make it tough to remember where and what the folders are don't you think? Too much brain work, lol

    First reaction is that this is pretty dumb. What might be nice though is if in that space you could stack the names of 5 or 6 folders. That would be useful.

    I agree with Lucy... It's just not aesthetically pleasing to me either... At least the Dev isn't trying to charge money for something like this...

    Could always put an iwidget icon over the blank space I guess. Even still I don't really see the point of this.

    I love creativity and new ideas brought to the table. But this is genuinely useless. Really can't see anyone needing this.

    the best different look for folder's was foldericons, but the ayecon theme did something new with the folders, this though is pointless

    This might be ok if they had an option for relocating the label to the middle of the icon space.

    Needs options to get rid of those unsightly app icons and words too. Then it would be perfect.
