If you've ever wanted to restrict access to certain apps on your jailbroken iOS device, this new tweak may come in handy. Icon Passcode will allow you to lock any icon on your home screen with a four digit passcode. It's pretty useful, but can sometimes make you look like you're up to no good. The tweak is pretty straight forward and only leaves a few options to tinker with in the Settings app. Once you've installed Icon Passcode, you'll have the ability to set a master passcode that will be used for all of your app icons. After a passcode has been created, you can select which apps will be locked from within the tweak's settings. You also have the ability to lock the app switcher with a passcode. When you double press the home button, you'll be prompted to enter your master passcode in order to gain access to the switcher. There's nothing extremely new and exciting about this tweak, but I felt the implementation was clean and it almost looked like a native iOS feature. Check out our video below to see the tweak in action. Icon Passcode is available in the Cydia Store (via the ModMyi repository) for free. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToXBxWbZYC0
