‘No More Folders’ removes folder backgrounds and mini grids inside folder icons

No More Folders Featured

It’s not unusual to see a random jailbreak tweak appear on the Cydia store that features no real practical application. For example, the tweak may present some new visual change, but it’s not exactly useful, and in fact, at least in some cases, the tweak could make your device less user friendly.

That’s not to say that there is no place for tweaks of this sort, there clearly is, otherwise developers wouldn’t keep producing them. The latest such tweak to fall into this category is No More Folders. This is a tweak that hides the folder backgrounds and grids, essentially making the folder invisible while closed.

Have a look past the break as we showcase how No More Folders looks and performs on video.

No More Folders is a simple install and go type of tweak. In other words, you shouldn’t expect to find any options or settings to configure.

After installation, all of the folders on your Home screen will be invisible outside of the folder labels that lie beneath. Tapping on the area where the folder should be yields the standard open folder view, which is completely visible to the eye. Since the stock Newsstand app is technically a folder on iOS 6, you’ll notice that the Newsstand folder is invisible after installation as well.

Creating folders, removing folders, and every other function revolving around folders acts exactly the same as it does with stock iOS. The only difference is that with No More Folders installed, the folders are now invisible while closed.

As mentioned, it’s probably not going to be a tweak that most enjoy, but perhaps some will find a semi-practical application for its use. What do you think? No More Folders can be downloaded free of charge via Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Share your thoughts and comments on the tweak below.

      bring in around $45h to $85h…heres a good example of what i’m doing,

    I gotta say, I still don’t regret losing my jailbreak to iOS 7. I updated as soon it was available, so June 10th, and even still haven’t missed out on any great tweaks. And I don’t mean to offend any talented developers.

      At this point, the ONLY thing keeping me wanting to jailbreak (I can’t live without this tweak) is BiteSMS’ quick reply. If that gets implemented, it would take something game changing to make me want to jailbreak again.

        Yeah a lot of people rave about that tweak; I never really got into it though.

        For me, Zephyr is the one tweak “I can’t live without”. It should definitely be the way to move around iOS and it’ll save your home button.

        You can accomplish an extremely ghetto way of quick reply via Siri…..but biteSMS is horribly designed when it comes to quick reply/etc, not to mention it sodomizes your battery to another level.

      • BenjaminDews

        I agree, but for me its Messages+.

        (Activator, Instalauncher and TypeStatus are also contributing, but I could live without them.)

    No More Folders + Springtomize + Gridlock = 100% invisible folders for stashing your porn.

    • Zeinth

      You don’t need no more folders, springtomize already does all of this in the folders section.

    *shakes head*
