Cydia Tweak: RocketLauncher Can Add A Powerful App Launcher To Your Lock Screen

February 19, 2014

There’s been no shortage of fun, interesting, and – in certain cases – incredibly useful jailbreak tweaks reaching the Cydia Store since evasi0n7 first launched. One upcoming package looks to really enhance Apple’s iOS further – it’s called RocketLauncher, and it adds a powerful app launcher to the iOS Lock screen.

We’ll be able to pick up RocketLauncher in the near future for $1.00, though in a recent post, iDownloadBlog went hands-on with the jailbreak tweak ahead of schedule.

As you can see in the above image, RocketLauncher allows users to access a vertical line of iOS apps from their Lock screen (seven in total), and to check on previews without launching the application fully. You can activate the package by tapping and holding anywhere on the Lock screen, and of course, apps can be launched once users have found the one they were looking for.

In the Settings app, a dedicated preferences pane allows users to customize the appearance of RocketLauncher; you can also select which applications appear in the app launcher, too.

The publication continues:

RocketLauncher is a good tweak that brings additional functionality to your Lock screen. The best thing about it is that it can be easily operated with one hand, and it’s totally customizable.

As mentioned, RocketLauncher should be available in the Cydia Store soon, and once it launches (no pun intended), the jailbreak tweak will retail for just $1.00. How do you like the look of the package?
