Atria tweak brings dynamic Home Screen layout to iOS


There are a few Home Screen layout managers for jailbroken devices that you could hear of like Cuboid, Boxy 4, or HomePlus Pro, but Atria tweak stands out with a per-page layout system and the share setup feature. It's also free and works on iOS 13 – iOS 15.

Add Atria Repo to your package manager.

What is Atria?

Atria is a jailbreak tweak that allows you to manage the iOS Home Screen icon layout. With this free tweak, you can manage and change quickly the position and offset of icons allowing you to create unique looks. Managing icon offset is also useful for making a place for widgets.

What's more, the tweak is fully compatible with iOS 14’s native widget system, so you can use your favorite widgets while customizing your Home Screen. It also supports an option to set up different pages with different settings for rows, columns, icon scales, and insets.

Once downloaded, Atria tweak installs a new dedicated preference pane to the Settings app from where you can configure all options to your liking. Supports iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. In order to start editing icon layout triple tap on the wallpaper behind icons.

The preference page allows you to toggle the tweak on and off, and enable such elements as Layout, App Library, and Save State. The developer included there also some general tweaks to disable the dock, hide icon badges, hide different labels, hide page dots, folder icon blur, etc.

Those features are really useful to make the Home Screen layout look more clean and simple. A small change like removing the labels under icons can make a huge look difference. When you mess something up there is also a quick option to reset all settings to default values.

To apply all changes a respring is required. Fortunately, this option comes with the tweak itself. Atria tweak can also display a welcome message on the Home Screen. You can freely set the label from the tweak settings pane. To start Atria, 3D touch an icon, and tap “Edit Layout”.

Atria tweak will present you with the following options to configure: Home Screen Pages, Dock, and Welcome message. From here you can play with the custom columns/rows, custom icon scale, custom widget icon scale, custom page insets, and custom page and widget offsets.

On top of that, Atria is packed with a built-in system to share your setup with all your friends or save them as a backup. Unlike other layout editors, Atria does not touch the App Library, so its functionality and visual appearance are not altered. All modern jailbreaks are supported.

Atria tweak is probably the best dynamic home screen layout configuration system for iOS devices. What's important, this is a free tweak! If you like to use widgets, this will be an excellent add-on for engines like Xen HTML to create nice-looking icon layouts and spacing for widgets.

Atria tweak was released by the developer as an open-source project under GPL-3 license through GitHub Repository. Recent changes to the source code were added on 17 May 2023. The tweak was developed 75% in Objective-C and 25% in Logos languages.

You can use the source code to learn about the process of tweaks development, or when you like you can also pull a request to participate in the development of Atria tweak.

This is a must-have tweak for all jailbroken devices. After you will jailbreak iOS Atria should be one of the first tweaks installed on your device. Definitely, this is one of my favorite tweaks.

Atria is officially updated to support the latest iOS 15 for A12-A15 devices, and it works now on XinaA15 Jailbreak. You can install the tweak on iOS 15.0 – iOS 15.1.1 and manage your icon layout on Home Screen and Dock. Respring doesn't work so use it from XinaA15 app.

If you own an older device such as iPhone 6, iPhone7, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X you can also install Atria home screen layout configuration system on Palera1n. It supports iOS 15.0 up to iOS 15.7.1, but the jailbreak process requires you to own a computer.
