    The Home Screen is where all of your application icons are stored when you install applications from the App Store. It also contains all of the application icons of your stock applications that bundled with iOS. Over time, the addition of new applications can make your Home Screen a real mess, even if you're using folders to try and organize them.

    A new jailbreak tweak called SpringboardOrganiser by iOS developer James Williams is now available in Cydia that aims to automate the process of organizing your Home Screen applications so that you don't have to. The tweak comes with various organization options so that you get to choose how they are organized.

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application, shown above, where you can choose how your Home Screen application icons are organized. Your options are:

    • Organizing application icons by application usage (popular first)
    • Organizing application icons alphabetically by name
    • Organizing application icons based on the application icon color

    Notably, the tweak also works for organizing the application icons within your Home Screen's folders, but you have to enable that option in the Settings application. You can also disable it if you don't want the application icons within your folders being messed with, but still want your Home Screen application icons to be sorted in the selected way.

    If you are interested in giving SpringboardOrganiser a try, it's available for 99 right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak is compatible with iOS 8 devices.
