I’m all about simplicity when it comes to my iOS device. I tend to stay away from tweaks that add too much clutter to my iOS experience. FXOSLock is a new Cydia tweak that will replace the default slider on the lock screen with a small nub. Once installed, the tweak is activated immediately. Lock the device and you’ll notice that the default iOS slider has been replaced with a small circle. You’ll be able to unlock the device with a swipe to the right, or launch the Camera app by swiping left. That’s literally all there is to this tweak. It’s just meant to be a clean lock screen slider that will add a touch of customization to your device. Check out our video overview below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejK_QmUECc8
If you can’t see the above video, please click this link.The only thing I’d like to see implemented in FXOSLock is the ability to set a custom app in place of the camera. Other than that, this is a simplistic lock screen tweak that just works. It’s also important to note that FXOSLock has full passcode support. Currently, FXOSLock is available in the BigBoss repository for $0.99 and is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5 or higher. There are no options to configure for this tweak.
