Jailbreak Only: SuperSlider - Launch Apps When Unlocking Your iPhone
Another jailbreak tweak to come to our attention via iPhone Download Blog is SuperSlider, a package that allows users to launch an iOS application from the iPhone's Lock screen. Currently, the tweak is available to download for free in Cydia (via the BigBoss Repository). Once installed, SuperSlider can be assigned up open any application downloaded to your iPhone. For example, you can have Twitter open, or perhaps the built-in Messages app. The tweak adds a button alongside the Lock screen's slider - a tap of this button opens the preassigned application: It's that simple. The package doesn't add an app icon to the Home screen, only a pane in the Settings app. As mentioned, SuperSlider is available to download for free (simply search for the package in Cydia). If you decide to check it out, let us know in the comments.
