Add Apps And Widgets To Your iPhone LockScreen With This Tweak
One of the fallbacks of the iPhone is its lockscreen. There is not much to see on it except for the date, time, and the unlock slider. Of course, when you receive notifications, then those will also appear themselves. But the problem is not about what is included on the lockscreen. It’s what is not on the lockscreen and the lack of options to actually customize it to our liking. A new tweak called AnyLock that can be downloaded from the Cydia store now brings these options to a reality. And we must say that we love it!
To get Cydia onto your iPhone, you will need to jailbreak your iPhone. After doing this, you will be able to install third-party applications, theme your iPhone in any way you like, add certain features that are not allowed on the original, non-jailbroken firmware, and basically just enhance your iPhone so that it functions better than it used to. To be able to jailbreak your iDevice, we encourage you to sign up with us here so that we can provide you with the necessary tools and tutorials so that you can get it done successfully.
Once you have jailbroken your iPhone and you want to customize your lockscreen, just download AnyLock and you can get yourself started. This tweak is awesome because it allows you to add icons to your lockscreen as shortcuts to different applications. But other than that, you can also add your favourite widget to your lockscreen which not only brings a great function to the screen but also adds a great look to it as well. Imagine having a picture frame widget on your lockscreen that scrolls through the many photos available on your library.
This is definitely more than just a novelty tweak as you can add a collection of applications to your lockscreen such as Instagram, Whatsapp, Chrome, Flashlight, etc. This is for faster access into those applications. The tweak takes everything a step further and allows you to remove the lockscreen clock, the seemingly useless camera button and even the Slide To Unlock bar. You can even assign custom gestures if you want a different way to unlock your iPhone! We really appreciate what the jailbreak developer has done here and it is one of those things that make the totally worth the time and effort.
Tell us what you think about this tweak because we know that it is just jam-packed with goodness and for the low price of $1.99 it is definitely one of those best-for-your-money type of enhancements that come around only once in a blue moon. Talk to us in the comments and let us know what you have been using on your iPhones. We just know that there must be some kind of set up that we have never heard of that makes the iOS experience a whole lot better. It’s worth sharing so get on board and let us know what tweaks you have that make your iOS life better.
