When it comes to user interface, Apple likes to have all of its users on the same plan. Just recently in iOS 8, Apple caved in and allowed for third party keyboard, which replace the stock iOS keyboard, making this a big step for Apple. However, not all of us like the way Apple keeps us in check and that's why a lot of us like to Jailbreak.

Folder6Plus is a new Cydia Tweak that changes the icon grid inside of folders. The stock iOS folder has a 3 by 3 grid allowing for 9 applications on a single folder page. This doesn't make too much sense, seeing at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have huge screens which can show more apps now problem. Folder6Plus tweaks the standard 3 by 3 into a 4 by 4, allowing for up to 16 apps on a single page.

I myself like to download Tweaks such as Nested Folders so that I can organize one folder with lots of other folders inside, saving space on my Homescreen. Folder6Plus is a free Cydia Tweak and can be found for free under the BigBoss repo.
