Thread: Make Launching Apps From Folders Faster Than Ever With 'QuickFolders'

  1. #1
    Default Make Launching Apps From Folders Faster Than Ever With 'QuickFolders'

    If you use folders on your iOS 7 device to keep your applications organized, then a new jailbreak tweak called QuickFolders by iOS developer Jailpod is definitely something that you will want to check out.

    With QuickFolders, you can make it easier than ever to launch applications from within folders. Rather than waiting for the time it takes to tap on a folder, wait for it to open, then tap on the application icon you want, this tweak lets you do everything in one gesture – a tap and drag-style gesture.

    With this tweak, you can tap and hold on a folder icon on your Home Screen and then drag your finger over an application icon that you want to launch and then let go to launch that application. You can do all of this much faster than tapping and waiting for animations to occur before tapping again. In addition to that, it just feels like an overall more pleasing way to launch applications from any of your folders.

    To see the tweak work in action, check out the animated GIF image below:

    QuickFolders also lets you take advantage of different gestures to perform even more actions.

    QuickFolders adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure the tweak to your liking:

    From here, you can do things such as enable or disable the tweak on demand, choose whether or not you want to wait for the animation of the folder to open before any applications can launch using QuickFolders, configure various delays, and configure various gestures.

    There are four delays you can configure via sliders, including:

    • Double Tap Delay – choosing how long you will have to double-tap on a folder before it opens
    • Launch Delay – choosing how long you will have to tap on the folder icon before QuickFolders can work
    • Close Folder Delay – choosing how long you need to tap and hold outside of the folder background to close the folder
    • Scroll Folder Delay – choosing how long you have to hold on the side of a folder background before it goes to the next page

    There are also five gestures you can configure:

    • Swipe up
    • Swipe down
    • Swipe left
    • Swipe right
    • Double tap

    You can assign any of these gestures any of the following options:

    • Open first application in the folder
    • Open second application in the folder
    • Open last application in the folder
    • Put the device in jiggle mode
    • Open a folder within the folder

    With all the new features that QuickFolders brings to folder users, it's hard not to recommend it. The developer notes that a lot of time was put into making the tweak compatible with several other jailbreak tweaks, including HomescreenDesigner, Apex 2, FolderEnhancer, Barrel, MultiIconMover+, and many more.

    If you would like to give QuickFolders a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for $1.99. The tweak only works on iOS 7 devices.

    A $1.99? I must be missing something here?

    It is nice to see devs still pumping out tweaks and things even as iOS 8 soon approaches us in a short time.

    LoL, Sorry Antony, I know you just report the news. Not hating the player...
