    When on your Home Screen, you tap on folders to open them and reveal the applications that you have sitting in them. An old jailbreak tweak called FolderSwipe would give you additional ways to open folders on your Lock Screen, but since it's not compatible with iOS 7, iOS developer TheNinjaprawn has released a new free jailbreak tweak called FolderSwipe7 that is compatible with iOS 7.

    What FolderSwipe7 will allow you to do is swipe up on, or pinch a folder icon to open it instead of just tapping on it. In the end, what you get is a fun way to open folders that isn't so direct and boring. The developer recommends using this tweak with Apex 2.

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application, as you can see above, which lets you configure the way that you open your folders, as well as enable or disable the tweak on demand.

    It's worth mentioning that the pinch gesture doesn't work as good on the iPhone or iPod touch – this gesture is intended for iPad users. FolderSwipe7 has been made compatible with all iOS 7 devices, whether they're 32-bit or 64-bit. If you would like to give FolderSwipe7 a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    FolderSwipe7 is open source and you can view the tweak's source code on GitHub at this link.
