Popular jailbreak tweak Lockdown Pro by iOS developer ipodtouchmaster has just been updated today with some additional features, such as being able to hide applications, an all new view all applications screen, and some speed enhancements. In addition to this package, the developer has Thursday afternoon released an iPad version of Lockdown Pro, and a Lite version for the iPhone/iPod touch as well as a Lite version for the iPad.

- Password protect any folder or application
- Enable or disable Lockdown Lite from anywhere with an Activator action

- Create different passwords for different applications
- Lock application movement
- Lock application deleting

Lockdown Pro for iPad and Lockdown Pro (iPhone and iPod touch edition) are separate purchases in Cydia. Lockdown Pro for the iPhone and iPod touch is $2.99, and the iPad version of Lockdown Pro is $2.99. The Lite versions are absolutely free. Lockdown Pro and Lockdown Lite are compatible with iOS 6 and are available right now from the BigBoss repository in Cydia.
