MessengerReturn tweak makes it easier for users to return to the main Facebook app from Facebook Messenger. It adds a ‘Back’ button to the Messenger app that you can tap to return to Facebook. Normally you have to either return to the homescreen and launch Facebook app again or use app switcher to make the return. It is available in Cydia for free.
Nested Folders (iOS 8)
The name of this tweak is pretty much self explanatory. It enables users of iOS 8 to put a folder into another folder and that folder into another, creating a folder-ception on their device. It makes managing apps and folders a lot better. You can get it from Cydia for free.
