'PreferenceTag' Will Allow You to Organize Your Settings Application Your Way
If you would like to organize your Settings application's preferences panes in a way that you would understand, then a new jailbreak tweak called PreferenceTag by iOS developer Gabriele is probably right up your alley.
With this tweak, you will be able to create different "tags," which can be better understood as folders. From these tags, you can choose the preference panes that will appear inside of them, and you can name them whatever you like. In layman's terms, you are creating a new preference folder in your Settings application, and adding the settings to it that you want in that folder for easier access.
In our example, we will be creating a tag and naming it "Tweaks," which we will then store all of the preference panes for our jailbreak tweaks in.
PreferenceTag adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can enable or disable the tweak on demand, configure some general settings, configure hiding and showing certain preference panes on demand, and configure your tags (also known as folders).
From the General settings cell, you can find information about the tweak, make sure you're running the latest version of the tweak, configure some advanced options, and get information about the developer.
From the Hide Settings settings cell, you will be able to hide and show any preference panes in your Settings application on demand. If the switch is turned off, that means that the preference pane is showing. If the switch is turned on, then that means that the preference pane is being hidden from the Settings application:
Finally, we get to the meat of the tweak. From the Tags cell, you will be able to create new tags (or folders), and choose the preference panes that will be put in those tags. In our case, we created a new tag called Tweaks, and we turned on all of the preference panes for our installed jailbreak tweaks so that they would all appear in the Tweaks cell:
Now with that configured, from the main preferences pane of the Settings application, we see our Tweaks cell, and all of our installed jailbreak tweaks' preference panes are all shown inside of that tag:
PreferenceTag is now compatible with iPads, but it will run on any iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 7. If you would like to better organize the Settings application to make some settings easier to get to, then PreferenceTag is definitely worth checking out. It's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for $1.99.
