  • '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!

      I have Motion on both iphone 5 and 4. Do you think this is the culprit? I think rotator and motion has the same function.

      Is there a way to center the clock vertically?? It cuts the numbers off when using a different font...

      Why clock font of 1.3 is not using LockClock.font? I have Bytafont installed and replace clock font with another font, before 1.3 has no this problem.

      I hate to make a custom label, and I used the wrong font initially, I will be fixing it to use the right font though, sorry about that

      Hey guys, just an update so you guys don't think I've fallen off the face of the earth or anything, I've been slowly working on it, unfortunately I work 75+ hours a week at the moment so I'm pretty swamped, but I haven't stopped development and iOS 5 support will be released shortly

      Hi. Had to remove this tweak as after some months there has been no update to address the Lockinfo compatibility issues.

      Are there plans to update to deal wirh this or had development now ceased?

      It isn't dead, I've just been incredibly busy, I am still working on it, the tweak has been live for about 6-7 weeks now and development won't stop until its bug free, just struggling to find some free time due to work at the moment

      I've just updated to latest version with 24 hour clock and the time is shoqong the 12 hour clock unless I lock and unlock again. Also the camera swipe at the bottom is way off the screen . Any updates planned to fix this ? Up until the newest version everything has been perfect ;(

      the latest update isn't very good in my opinion, the grabber disappears off the bottom of the screen when enabling the slider , the formatting of the date is now in a line and looks weird personally preferred it wrapped, and the clock keeps switching between 12h and 24h modes randomly. So i have uninstalled until another update is submitted. Its a shame as before the update it worked flawlessly for me.

      Since last update, there's a display problem with camera icon on lockscreen.

      Is it possible to have a toggle for the animation when media controls are shown....I'm not too keen on the animation and would like the option to turn it off if possible

      Keep up the good work

      the recent update has fixed the camera grabber but now the time shows in 12hr format and the day/date doesn't wrap anymore and looks weird
