CamTap is a new jailbreak tweak that will help keep your lock screen clean. The lock screen for iOS is already very simple, but CamTap takes it in an entirely different direction. This jailbreak tweak removes the “Slide To Unlock” bar from your lock screen and replaces it with a black bar and a centered camera icon. Once you’ve installed the tweak, it will appear that there’s no way to unlock your device, but CamTap has a hidden gesture. If you’d like to unlock your device, simply swipe up on the black bar. You also have the ability to tap on the centered camera icon to launch your device's camera. The implementation is very elegant and could definitely pass as a native feature. Check out our video overview below and let us know what you think in the comments. Currently, CamTap is available in the Cydia Store (via the BigBoss repository) for free. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWljyA_U9BE
