MultiActions lets you move and delete apps in bulk

By Anthony Bouchard on Jan 7, 2017

One of the major shortcomings for those with iPhones and iPads, especially those with lots of apps installed on them, is the fact that you have to move or delete your apps one at a time. This becomes cumbersome when you want to put a number of your apps in or out of folders or delete multiple apps at once.

A new jailbreak tweak called MultiActions, on the other hand, will exclude your device from these shortcomings, as it allows you to move or delete multiple apps in bulk without having to do things one at a time. Read More

iOS 10 tidbit: using 3D Touch to rename folders and seeing their notifications badge breakdown

By Christian Zibreg on Jun 16, 2016

iOS 10 makes extended use of 3D Touch-driven gestures on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. For instance, you can 3D Touch the bottom row of icons in Control Center to set flashlight intensity, start the timer, go to your last calculation and jump directly into a Camera mode.

Unfortunately, the way stock iOS handles longer folder names makes it nearly impossible to tell what the entire folder title is.

That’s why a new free jailbreak tweak called Marquee is going to appeal to those of you with the desire to have longer folder names on your Home screen. Read More

Tips for creating, renaming and using folders on the new Apple TV

By Christian Zibreg on Mar 22, 2016

As of tvOS 9.2, owners of the fourth-generation Apple TV can now create folders of apps, just like they would on an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn the basic techniques for decluttering your Apple TV Home screen by filing apps into folders. And, yes, we’ll also tell you about the aforesaid time-saving shortcuts. Read More
