What is Boxy tweak?

Boxy tweak is a powerful tool allowing you to take advantage of Icon layout on your iOS device. Boxy 4 works on iOS 13 and can help you to adjust how far each icon is from each edge of the screen and how far each icon is from one another. The icon layout is fully customizable with a variety of configurable options.

Boxy tweak

Create pretty cool icon layouts on your iPhone with Boxy. Align all icons in the top half of the screen or the bottom half or even the top corners of the screen. Everything is really possible. Enable Quick Settings and swipe up on home screen icons or use a two-finger tap to display available controls.

Boxy 4 is fully compatible with all devices running on unc0ver or checkra1n jailbreaks! After installing the tweak a new preference pane is added to the Setting app from where you can freely configure all settings.

Moreover, using this tweak you can hide dock, square icons, icon labels, or page control visibility. There is also an option to customize the number of icons displayed in the dock (up to 5) and columns & rows (up to 10).

Boxy tweak for iOS 13

The tweak is so easy to use that you can create a custom home screen icon layout in a matter of seconds. What's more, there is also an option to save and load presets for a quick layout change. Boxy 4 is an amazing tweak.

Using Dashboard X widgets?

Boxy will make you more space to place them on your Home Screen. No more compromises to choose between app icons and free space on the SpringBoard. Have all of them on the screen plus all your favorite widgets!

If you don't want to spend $2 on Boxy tweak there are free alternatives available. Cuboid tweak is a lightweight home screen layout manager for your jailbroken device, but I would personally recommend you to try HomePlus tweak.
