Tweak developers, just like iOS users, were the last to learn about the release of the Pangu 9 jailbreak tool, and they need to update their tweaks to be fully compatible with iOS 9 so that their tweaks can be enjoyed on the new firmware too. And of the Cydia tweaks that got a prompt iOS 9 update is Apex 2 by A3Tweaks.

For those who haven’t used the Apex tweak before, it enables you to Group the Home screen icons in different folders according to their category. The folders can be easily swiped to view the apps and launch them with a tap. Let’s do a quick recap of the features of this very popular tweak.

Features :

  • Apex 2 allows you to place Home screen icons in folders of different categories according to the nature of the app.
  • You just need to swipe down or swipe up on the Home screen to bring up the spots where you can place the apps of your choice by just tapping the + sign and selecting the particular apps.
  • A maximum of four sub-apps can be placed in an app folder. You can scroll through the installed apps or even use the search box to quickly select sub-apps. apex2-4
  • In the preferences of the tweak, a visual indicator option has been given to help the user identify the apps that have sub-apps assigned to them. You can hide this option once you are well-versed with the contents of each folder.
  • You can change the default swipe or swipe down invoke gesture to a double-tap action for bringing up the sub-app screen. apex2-6
  • The Apex 2 tweak can also add a gesture to tap on the status bar for invoking the Spotlight search box. This can come handy for those who don’t like the pull-down gesture.
  • The preferences of the tweak contain three more options- allow creation of now, aggregate badge count, and close on launch, which we recommend you to leave turned on. apex2-7
