Apex 2 – Group Similar Apps Together

The talented Pangu team has jailbroken iOS 9 and the Pangu 9 jailbreak can now be downloaded to jailbreak devices running iOS 9 – iOS 9.0.2. Along with the iOS 9 jailbreak, Jay Freeman (Saurik) updated Cydia Substrate and Cydia Installer to offer smooth compatibility to iOS 9. There are not many tweaks that are supported on iOS 9 as of now. But some developers have been quite active and have updated their tweaks for supporting iOS 9. One such tweak is Apex 2.

In case you never have used Apex earlier, this tweak allows you to place the Home screen icons in separate groups or folders on the basis of their category. You can easily swipe up or down on the folders to access and launch the apps. So in case the Apex 2 tweak does not sound familiar to you, let’s go through its features.

Features :

  • The Apex 2 tweak requires very little to no setting up at all and can be used right away after installing; it’s as simple as that. You can easily group different Home screen app icons into different folders. apex2-2
  • With a swipe up or swipe down gesture on the Home screen, you can effortlessly invoke the empty spots where you can add app icons from the Home screen by just tapping on the + sign to select the required app.
  • You can place at the most four sub-apps inside one folder. While adding the apps, you can either search for a specific app using the search box, or you can just scroll through the apps and select the ones you want to group into folders. apex2-6
  • The tweak can be set up from its preferences pane in the Settings app. You get a visual indicator option there which helps you identify those apps that have sub-apps under them. This option can be hidden too, but make sure that you are familiar about the contents of all the app folders.
  • The default gesture to bring up the sub-app screen can be changed from swipe down/swipe up to double-tap.
  • In case you don’t like the pull down gesture to invoke Spotlight search, you can set to open the search box by just tapping on the Status bar.apex2-5
  • Aggregate badge count, close on launch, and allow creation of now are the three more options that can be found in the preferences of Apex 2, and it is recommended that you leave these options enabled.
