Customize iOS’ Home screen folders with Cartella

If you’re looking for a way to spice up your iPhone or iPad’s native Home screen folder behavior, then there’s a fairly good chance that a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called Cartella by iOS developer burrit0z could be right up your alley.

Cartella was designed to let jailbreakers adjust the look and feel of their handset’s Home screen folders. Straight out of the box, it incorporates a plethora of different customization options, including:

– Custom folder rows
– Custom folder columns
– Hide folder icon blur
– Hide folder background
– Pinch the folders in vertically (custom height)
– Pinch them in sideways (side pinch factor)
– Full Screen Folders (like Bolders)
– Hide the pages and dock in folders
– Hide the blur on the wallpaper in folders
– OLED folders (pure black background)
– Bold Titles (like Bolders)
– Choose the size of the folder title (Hidden, Large, Regular)
– Align the title to the left, center, or right
– Close folders by options of tap to close and pinch to close (or both)
– Resize the Grid preview of the folder icon
– Hide all SpringBoard labels
– Hide all SpringBoard page dots
– Custom colors of folder icon background
– Custom color of folder view background
– Move page dots as you wish
