iOS has a simple lockscreen which is very functional on its own. It gives you everything you need- time, date, notifications etc. But since we are jailbroken, we can always ask for more. Today, we are going to check out the some of the Best Lockscreen Tweaks for iOS to make your experience with the lockscreen even better.
1. Lockhtml 4
A very popular, well designed and one of the best tweaks on iOS is Lockhtml 4. Lockhtml allows you to replace the default iOS clock and date with HTML widgets. There are tons of such beautiful HTML widgets. Helps creating beautiful setups for your lockscreen. Check out the gallery below to see what this tweak is capable of:
2. Androidlock XT
Another popular tweak for the lockscreen. This tweak replaces the default passcode with Android style pattern unlock. This tweak works very well and has an awesome design that goes very well with the iOS blur. Themes can also be applied to it to change its look. Lot of options are available for changing the behaviour and look of the tweak.
3. If Found
If Found is a very simple yet useful tool. This tweak adds a small button in the corner of the lockscreen that says ‘if found’. A the name suggests, this tweak allows others to access contact information about you in case you lose your phone. When the small ‘if found’ button is tapped on, it brings out a small dialogue box with your name and contact details. All information is available on the lockscreen, without the need of a passcode.
Ascend (for iOS 7) and Ascend² (iOS 8) gives the classic iOS 6 lockscreen a whole new modern look. But, that’s not all as it also gives your notifications and passcode screen a new look. Brings out a simple and elegant look overall. Compatible with most of the lockscreen tweaks out there.
If the above tweaks are not of your liking and simplicity is what you prefer, then SubtleLock is the tweak for you! A very popular tweak since iOS 6. This tweak removes all the clutter from the lockscreen and gives you clean and open locksceen that helps you show of your wallpaper.
6. Ah! Ah! Ah!
Last but not the least, this tweak is the most brilliant tweak ever made, simply genius. Ha! just kidding. The tweak does not add any functionality to your lockscreen, but only adds a funny photo or video message on entering the wrong password. For example, you can make this image appear in case somebody enters a wrong password.
Definitely gonna scare the hell out of that person!
There are few other awesome tweaks that need to be mentioned, but are not updated for iOS 8 yet, but will available soon:
Convergence: Adds a lockscreen full of features. Also comes with a lot of theming options
iCaughtU: Adds a ton of security features to your lockscreen to make it almost impossible to steal. Takes pictures when wrong password applied and doesn’t allow shutting down device, if locked. Super useful!
Stride: Draw your password, cool replacement for the number passcode.
Hope you’ll make use of this list and enjoy these tweaks. Leave a comment in case of any queries or suggestions.
