BuddyLock is a brand new jailbreak tweak that offers users a redesigned Lock screen complete with app shortcuts, widgets, and themes. At the moment, jailbreakers can download BuddyLock in the Cydia Store for $0.99, via the BigBoss repository. Once downloaded and installed, users can access an app selection interface when unlocking their iDevice, along similar lines to the Android-inspired JellyLock. Favorite applications can be displayed right on the Lock screen, including folders, meaning users have the option of launching their go-to apps quickly and easily using the jailbreak tweak. In BuddyLock, however, a large number of additional features are available to access. For example, jailbreakers can choose one of several themes for the jailbreak tweak in the Settings app (which are based on colors), and may also alter the opacity, size, and margins of BuddyLock. All aspects of BuddyLock can be customized from within the Settings application, and jailbreakers will enjoy tailoring the jailbreak tweak to their own individual taste. Of course, it's also possible to alter which applications appear on the Lock screen, and to enable or disable the presence of a folder interface (the applications that appear inside the folder may then also be customized). Finally, a number of "Extras" in the Settings app pane for BuddyLock allow users to add additional features - in particular, widgets - to one's Lock screen. Social network integration, toggles, Music app controls, and more are included. Once again, these can easily be enabled or disabled from within the Settings app. For a full overview of BuddyLock, be sure to take a look at the below video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cra61Sy1c2Y
