A new jailbreak tweak allows users to launch any third-party application from iOS 5.1.x’s Camera app Lock screen icon.
The tweak, GrabberApp, is currently available in the Cydia Store free of charge. Once downloaded and installed, users can configure in the Settings app (via a dedicated pane) whether GrabberApp is enabled, and if so, which app swiping on the Lock screen Camera app icon will launch.
GrabberApp will prove to be particularly useful for those of you who use alternate third-party iPhone camera applications. At the same time, if there’s another iOS app – like Twitter or Facebook – that you’re always launching upon unlocking, it’s possible to assign that application to GrabberApp, resulting in easy access from the Lock screen. Basically, any iOS application – from built-in apps to third-party apps – can be launched using GrabberApp, the only problem is deciding which one to assign to the tweak!
If you’re rocking a jailbroken iPhone, take a look at GrabberApp now. As mentioned, it’s currently available in the Cydia Store free of charge, via the BigBoss Repository. Enjoy!
