  • 'SubtleLock (iOS 7)' is a Lock Screen Tweak for iOS 7 Minimalists


    About a year ago, we showed you a jailbreak tweak called SubtleLock by iOS developer Michael Poole. The tweak simplified the Lock Screen by slimming down the user interface elements to make more room for incoming Lock Screen notifications and viewing your Lock Screen wallpaper.

    The developer has just released an iOS 7-compatible version of the tweak called SubtleLock (iOS 7) and it is available in Cydia right now for $1.00. If you own SubtleLock already, it's a free upgrade. As you can probably guess, the tweak does the same thing as the original, but it's intended for iOS 7 only. You can see what the tweak actually does to your Lock Screen in the screenshot examples above.

    SubtleLock (iOS 7) moves the lock up to the top left hand corner with smaller font, and moves the date to the top right hand corner. The Slide to Unlock text is moved down a little more from before the tweak was installed.

    You'll also find a preferences pane in the Settings application where you can further configure how your Lock Screen will look:



    You'll be able to hide or show the clock entirely, or even hide or show the clock seconds. You'll also find options for hiding or showing the slider, changing the label color, hiding or showing the date, hiding or showing the Camera Grabber, hiding or showing the Control Center Grabber, and hiding or showing the Notification Center Grabber.

    SubtleLock (iOS 7) is intended for those iOS 7 minimalists out there, and it does a good job of making your Lock Screen feel more lightweight. If you want to give it a try, you'll find it in Cydia right now.

      Thank you

      2 points to note for me I guess:
      - You have an i5, which has taller screen, so more vertical space to fit these things.
      - If I understand correctly Groovylock miWeather needs to b setup via iFile and doesnt autoupate to new locations?

      No good fo me since I travel a lot. And no good for family members since it would be too complicated. Looks nice though

      Thanks guys Back on topic now I guess with SubtleLock, which after another update last night seems to be working very well without any issues so far! (iPhone 4).

      You can get this free too, and I like how this lets the time and date show instead of having the time up in the status bar.

      My springboard has been crashing lately when I attempt to use Spotify or iHeartRadio. After running a crash report I saw that it was SubtleLock causing this. Once I uninstalled it, the crashing went away. Does anyone else have this issue?
