    This tweak auto closes a folder after you launch an app. You know how when you exit the app and go back to the home screen the folder is still open? Well not anymore :) it's free too!

    It's cool right? It would get a bit annoying too.

    Love this app. I hated being returned to the folder and having to click out of it. Also just added 5 icons in multitask bar tweak.

    Another tiny app to fix an obvious problem with the iPhone's interface. Perfect. But would be more perfect if there were no need for this app.

    Awesome. One of the things I really hate about 4.0+.

    For the amount of attention spent on little details, Apple always seems to, well.... miss ‘em.

    I thought of this tweak when the iPhone first came out. It was annoying and slowed my maneuvering.

    However I have to disagree with you. I bet some folks like having the folder stay open. After I downloaded the apps I needed and got my springboard broken in and folders arragend properly, I find that the folder staying open is intuitive and logical most times. However sometimes it is not...so therefore it really should be a tweak or option.....or perhaps that is what you are saying....that it should be an option as opposed to saying that they should have thought through the user interface for a better solution.

    Either way, I personally think it is a happy medium, and i like it much better than the other solutions such as categories, pogo plank or karakae or whatever it was called.

    No problem, it just caught my eye and loved it and decided to share. :D

    @Riley2323 I'm pretty sure the majority of people would rather have this tweak as it seems more proper for the folder to be closed after you have selected what you want from inside.
