Do you ever wish that you could get quick access to your iOS apps from your device’s lock screen? With LockLauncher installed on your jailbroken iPhone, you can.
LockLauncher is a free tweak available in Cydia for jailbroken iPhones that allows you to add up to nine apps to your device’s lock screen for quick and easy launching. Our friends over at iDownloadBlog have put together a hands-on video of LockLauncher in action:
The good thing about LockLauncher is that if you have a passcode lock set on your device, it will still require you to enter it before it launches each app. While this will slow you down a little, it means the tweak will not compromise your security.
The only downside to LockLauncher, of course, is that it does somewhat defeat the purpose of a lock screen. I can imagine that with this tweak installed, you’re likely to launch apps accidentally on a frequent basis.
