How To Give Home Screen Folders Radial Launching Interface On iOS 9 iPhone

Jailbreaking community always finds new ways of using your iDevice and this time it offers radial launching interface for iOS 9 folders. If you have jailbroken iPhone you can try a new Cydia tweak called Exsto. It is very interesting jailbreak tweak that applies dynamic radial-styled app launcher every time you want to use one of your iOS folders instead of blocky grid of apps. So if you are interested in tying this tweak follow the guide below to see how it works.

How To Give iOS 9 Folders Radial Launching Interface

Step 1. In order to enable radial launching interface for iOS 9 folders you should use Pangu jailbreak tool for iOS 9-9.0.2 devices to liberate your iPhone.

Step 2. Once done, head to Cydia and pay $0.99 to get Exsto tweak. Install downloaded app.

Step 3. After installation Exsto will add a preferences pane to the Settings app. Here you can enable or disable the tweak on demand, limit the number of app icons that are allowed to appear in the Exsto interface and others options to get the tweak functioning comfortably on your iPhone based on your own preferences.

Step 4. Exsto is used by clicking and holding on a folder icon from your Home screen for just a moment. Then, you can drag your finger to any app in the radial interface and release your finger to open up that app.

After using Exsto tweak for some time you will notice it offers faster way to access your apps from your folders than launching the folder interface and paging between folder pages.

Step 5. When you have a notification, like in Messages app, the app will glow red so you know what app the notification badge is coming from. The example is shown below.

It should be toned that if you have a folder against a wall, such as the edge of your screen, or in your Dock, Exsto adjusts its shape to a half or quarter circle instead of a full one.

Exsto tweak brings new faster way of launching Home screen folders on your jailbroken iOS 9 device.
