We all know that 3D touch is an innovative feature which has opened new doors of possibilities and giving a new way of interacting with our smart handheld devices i.e. smartphones like iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Here in this article I am going to introduce with you a new Cydia jailbreak tweak that allows you to enable 3D touch for folders on iOS device.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 is also rumored to feature a pressure sensitive display screen just like the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. But that’s not the point here.
Enable 3D Touch For Folders On iOS 9 With Appendix
With 3D Touch in iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, you can peek into a web-link and email, but the most used feature of 3D touch is that you can press firmly on supported apps and you get a small menu of shortcuts based on the app itself.
For example, if you have Instagram app installed in your iPhone, you can 3D Touch on the Instagram app and there will be a menu containing shortcuts to activity, your profile, and some other stuff.
The limitation of this feature is that it works only with app icons and not the folders. Appendix Cydia tweak changes that and gives you permission to enable 3D touch for folders created on Springboard and shows all the apps added in that folder on the hover menu.
To get a better idea about the Appendix tweak, see the image given below.
Appendix tweak works out of the box but you can fine-tune the sorting of apps shown in the 3D Touch menu as you can only see up to 4 apps in the shortcut menu.
If you have an older iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch which doesn’t support 3D touch, you can also get this tweak to work by installing any 3D Touch Tweak like Forcy or any other.
Once you have installed 3D Touch simulating tweak on your iDevice, just head over to Cydia and search for Appendix.
Appendix is available for free in HYi repository and you can give it a try over there.
