Even as Apple adds new things to iOS with each big release, there will always be some things that can only be achieved by jailbreaking a device. Customization of the user interface is very much one of those things, with Apple unlikely to ever allow customization of how iOS looks and jailbreak tweaks falling over themselves to give users the power they crave.
One new jailbreak tweak for iPhones running iOS 10.0.x-10.2, called NougatFolder, is a prime example of exactly that.
A free download via the BigBoss repository on Cydia, NougatFolder’s name should probably give away what it does. Once installed, and with no options to configure, NougatFolder takes iOS folders and gives them the Android Nougat look, that is, they become round and show their contents in a way that any Android user having used Android Nougat will be familiar with.
The functionality of those folders is not changed, and this tweak is merely a method of altering the boring iOS folders and making them look somewhat different. I’m a fan.
NougatFolder may be one of the more simple tweaks available on Cydia in that it only does one thing, but that thing is something iOS alone cannot manage. If you like to make iOS look like it belongs to you rather than have Apple dictate everything from the very top to the very bottom of the experience, then this download is for you. You don’t even have to be a fan of Android Nougat as such – the change in the way these folders look is great regardless!
