Apex 2 01

Sentry, the designer behind Auxo 2 and a bevy of other jailbreak releases, has teased a sequel to another one of his popular tweaks. Apex—the jailbreak tweak that allowed users to group app icons and reveal them using swipe gestures—has received the iOS 7 treatment, and it comes in the form of Apex 2.

If you’re someone who likes to avoid using folders, then Apex is a jailbreak tweak that should pique your interest. The idea behind the tweak was good, but it was the implementation, with its smooth animations, that made Apex stand out.

Needless to say, it’s good to see Apex running on iOS 7, as it evokes fond memories. Check out the full review of the original version, and a sneak peak at the new iOS 7 update.

You can find the full teaser video, which has been posted on Vine, here:

If you haven’t seen our original review of Apex, then you should definitely check that out as well. It will give you a good overview of how Apex works and why it’s beneficial.

Judging from the video teaser, we should expect functionality that’s very similar to the previous version of Apex. Sentry worked with the same developer from the original version, Aditya KD, so the inner workings of the tweak will probably be very familiar as well.

The original Apex was $1.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. If the same trend holds regarding the iOS 7 updates from A3tweaks’ releases, then we might see tiered pricing based on whether or not the original version was purchased.

What do you think about Apex? Are you excited that a sequel is right around the corner? Sound off down below in the comments.

    would use this, looking forward to it

  • lferlito

    and still no altkeyboard 2 from A3tweaks….. So bad

    • Jon20

      I agree. Altkeyboard is such a useful tweak that I’m surprised hasn’t been updated yet.

  • Piyush

    How will we use spotlight!?

    • Ansar Arif

      Pull down without touching the icon I guess.

    • Frozen Bee .GFKS

      why would you use spotlight for gods sake??

      • Piyush

        I generally have a lot of apps on the iPhone. Dnt like scrolling to the page and then the subfolders….Spotlight is much faster!

  • Looks really neat. Be even beter if it allowed you to customize the stack’s icon or rename the stack. not just based on whichever is the top one.

    • Eyal^S

      I agree it would be a bit cooler but I also think that It would just become folders in a little bit cooler way

  • Ahmed Karoui

    Would love to see something new (some new concepts) in anticipation of the new firmware (iOS 8) 🙂

  • Shingo

    hope it will support for ipad too

  • s0me

    Cant wait to get it !

  • iDude

    Me, i’m just glad that i removed all their tweaks!

  • MrShutEmDown

    I swear A3Tweaks are run by Dory from Finding Nemo.

    The wait is always almost over… Oh look another tweak preview!

    • Diego Milano

      This is because they are not professional developers rather just some talented random students. They will eventually learn what deadlines are all about once they get a proper job in the real world. 🙂

  • Mike Colacone Saal

    I’m pretty sure a3tweaks said this would be free for past owners back in January. Maybe something’s changed, we will see.

    Tired of the teases.
