If you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch, there's some news that may excite you. Atom is now available in Cydia. This new tweak is a lock screen launcher that was created by Tyler Nettleton with help from Surenix. Once installed, Atom will add six app shortcuts to the lock screen. Within the Settings app, you have the ability to customize each shortcut position with your favorite apps. Atom is a very sleek lock screen replacement with smooth animations and a simple layout. Recently, we previewed Atom and got a first hand look at its features:
This tweak may be simple, but in my opinion, that’s the best part about it. With Atom, you’ll have quick access to your favorite apps with a new lock screen layout and sleek animations. If you need to unlock your device, tap and hold on the black button to reveal Atom’s layout, then slide it up to the lock in the middle of the screen and release. Alternatively, you can slide the button to any of the icons to quickly launch one of the apps.Check out our video overview below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BfPFg0huEw
