  • '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!

      Still not working on my i5 I have tried reinstalling and multiple re springs amongst other things. As soon as he phone restarts I get crashes and goes into safe mode or I get the screen going mental. I know it's only $1 but most tweaks are free so would expect the paid ones to work. Anyway you can have a look at fixing it please.

      I may be wrong but I don't think the new fixed version is available yet. I can still only see the broken 1.1-5 version.

      Guess it takes a while for the update to go live.

      I contacted the DEV about this issue last night and he stated that he was currently working on a fix for this. The fix should be released soon.

      It's actually fixed, just waiting for the the BigBoss repo to refresh their packages and put the update up

      The update did fix the major problems. However, the font size of the clock does not resize so it is cut off (seems to change how much is cut off with each respiring). Also, when you hold down the sleep button and the power off slider shows up, the cancel button is cut off. After fixing these two problems, this will be perfect. Overall, great tweak and keep up the good work!

      I'm on the iPhone 4s btw.

      EDIT: Sometimes there is also a small gap between the top bar and the first notification.

      So I just downloaded the smaller subtle lock tweak, and it doesn't seem to be working.

      The clock will be fixed in the next couple days, foreign date formats are working now, and the issue with the date not being hidden is fixed, hoping to update very soon, hopefully tomorrow

      I'm liking this tweak so far. Works well with livepapers. Only thing I don't like so far is the slider bar is a little too thin. The little horizantal lines over the camera icon bottom right are touching the top of the slider box. IMO it would look a little better to be just a touch bigger to better fit that.

      I'm planning on making the actual slider and the camera button smaller within the slider

      The slider itself is a decent size, and I like the ayecon look of it. Making the camera icon a little smaller would definitely be better looking though.

      Nice job man

      Thank you

      But the slider only appears to be that small with ayecon, the size of the slider without a theme fills the bar height wise, however the camera button is smaller than ayecons haha, I think the ayecon slider would still work the same though

      Ah yes, silly me with my ayecon lock screen on lol. Ya, with the normal slider it could do with a slight "shrinking" too, and yes you are right, the normal camera icon fits a bit better than with ayecon on.

      It would be perfect with ayecons slider and the normal camera icon.

      Took the stock image for cameragrabber and overwrote the ayecon one in ayecon lockscreen. So now I do have ayecon slider with default camera icon which fits better. All set now
