There’s been no shortage of Home screen folder customization-centric jailbreak tweak releases as of late, and with so many options to choose from, the million-dollar question jailbreakers are asking seems to be: which one offers the most bang for my buck?

The answer is subjective based on what you need out of such a tweak, but if you’re still on the fence, then it can be hard to go wrong with a new release called FolderControllerXIII by iOS developer i0s_tweakr, which offers one of the most extensive feature sets we’ve ever seen in a folder customization tweak for the iOS platform.

Whether you want custom colors, need custom layouts, or demand custom background images, this tweak has you covered. With so many options to configure being added to the Settings app after installation, there’s no time to waste. We’ll just get right into the act of showing you all the settings FolderControllerXIII brings to the table:

From the primary preference pane, users can:

  • Toggle FolderControllerXIII on or off
  • Customize Open Folder options
  • Enable and configure a custom folder background image
  • Adjust the folder background level alpha level
  • Customize Closing Folder options
  • Customize Custom Layout options
  • Customize Corner Radius options
  • Include folders with iOS’ built-in multi-icon select for bulk moving

As you might’ve noticed, the preference pane is separated into groups, which we’ll outline for you below:

  • Enable and configure custom folder sizes

As you might’ve noticed, each preference pane contains its own Apply changes button, which resprings your device to append any changes you make to the settings.

If you’re into heavy iOS customization and have some time to tinker with the plethora of settings that FolderControllerXIII has to offer, then we can’t recommend it enough. On the other hand, those who feel intimidated by such extreme amounts of customization may want to look into lighter alternatives like Folded or Foldy instead.

FolderControllerXIII is available to purchase for $2.00 from the Packix repository via your preferred package manager and supports jailbroken iOS 13 devices.
