JWFolders is a class that attempts to mimic the folder animation present on the iOS SpringBoard. This is my first public repository, as well as my first open-source class.


JWFolders is being used in my commercial app, QuickWeather. Depicted here is a beta version of the app:



Just include the entire folder, JWFolders, in your project. Import JWFolders.h in the class in which you wish to create the folder.

#import "JWFolders.h"

In the header there is complete documentation. Alternatively, you can see the demo project for an example.


The project currently uses Automatic Reference Counting, which means that if your project does not use ARC there will be memory leaks. There are no plans to create a non-ARC branch at this time.


JWFolders is licensed under the BSD License.


  • Add a "notch" at the folder position
  • Optimize the speed at which the folder opens

    Please feel free to fork the project and improve it as much as possible!
