  • 'SubtleLock' is a Lock Screen Tweak for Minimalists


    Those of you that are minimalists will enjoy a new jailbreak tweak called SubtleLock by iOS developer Michael Poole.

    SubtleLock removes all of the excess interface elements from the lock screen and compresses the slider and lock screen clock so they stop taking up so much space. In return, the tweak gives you a larger canvas to view your wallpaper the developer claims around 100 extra pixels. At the same time, the smaller slider and clock makes it feel like your display is actually bigger than it really is this is a cool optical illusion.

    To reduce the size of your lock screen clock, the tweak actually reduces the font size of the time, and moves it to the left of the display. The date is moved to the right of the display. The slider and camera grabber are not resized or changed by this tweak. Also, the best part, the smaller clock and slider elements mean that you can pack more notifications on your lock screen at once.

    From the preference pane of SubtleLock, which is located in the Settings application, you can enable or disable the tweak on demand without even needing to respring for your changes to take effect:



    SubtleLock is a great way to show off your minimalist attitude. I actually adore the look of SubtleLock, being a minimalist myself. I think this one is definitely a keeper.

    SubtleLock is compatible with iOS 6. Check it out!

      Ive made a simple theme for this that I've just submitted to Cydia!



      I actually love this more compact version of the lockscreen!

      I purchased this and my lockscreen looked exactly the same. I even tried re-springing and rebooting to no avail.

      However, disabling the tweak and then re-enabling it worked! So if anyone else has any issues try doing that
      Yeah, that works lol.

      Nice, but that makes me want to shrink the interface even further lol.

      Seems like a good thread for me to ask a general question. I see a LOT of nice little tweaks like this one, but don't try them because it seems counter-intuitive that i could load, say, 12 of these little tweaks on top of my current Springtomize, SBsettings, Activator, Tether me, etc. and still have a stable system. I probably don't understand how these tweak interact with or alter the OS. I have plenty of memory, just worried about code-bloat or something along those lines. I'm sure this could be asked more intelligently too!! Anyway, do people have issues with loading a bunch of these smaller tweaks on their iPhones (I have iP5)? I'm not running any theme programs.

      Unfold was brought to my attention today, I am working on fixes as we speak

      1.) any compatibility issues with LockInfo Forecast, and iPhone 5 issues will be first

      2.) intelliscreen x compatibility

      3.) unfold compatibility

      I'm not sure if I will fix some and submit and update, while I work on more, or if I should try to fix all before updating, what do you guys think?

      It doesn't work right with lockinfo. Bottom looks fine, but the top clock gets cut off. Also, those having problems getting the tweak to work, I turned it off, resprung, turned it on, and then resprung again. Came up.

      Could you make this compatible with iOS 5? This would make my iPhone 4 feel more like my 5.

      Nice tweak, maybe you can give an option to switch position between date and clock

      How do developers gauge the value for their product, really?? (3vasi0n don't charge for their JB either)
      It's free but ugly :-d

      It has compatibility issues with both android XT and stride. Just putting that out there.

      Let me see if I can disable and reenable it to get to work. If not however, I would very much like compatibility with these two tweaks.

      Overly simplistic is an oxymoron

      Nice lock screen.
