Just a few days ago, we showed you five great jailbreak tweaks for improving the text messaging experience on any iOS 7 device
, and today we'll be showing you five amazing jailbreak tweaks for improving your Lock Screen experience on any iOS 7 device. Since the Lock Screen is something that we see every time that we go to use our device, it's something that many of us could benefit from improving on.
Just a quick note before we get started; these tweaks are all compatible with the Pangu version 1.1.0 jailbreak for iOS 7.1.x, and will work with earlier iOS 7 jailbreaks, such as evasi0n7, as well.
1. IntelliScreenX 7 – $9.99
We're going to start this show with a long-time favorite: IntelliScreenX 7
. This amazing tweak brings so much of your information to your Lock Screen that you might feel like you never even need to unlock your device. You can do such things as look through all of your notifications, view the weather conditions outside, read your e-mails, access your Facebook or Twitter feeds, view news feeds, access favorite applications, and even quickly compose and reply to incoming messages with its built-in Messages+ functionality. IntelliScreenX 7 slides down over the Lock Screen via the Notification Center grabber at the top of the Lock Screen, and can be hidden in the same way. IntelliScreenX 7 can also be accessed from Notification Center inside of iOS 7, so it's not limited to the Lock Screen. Check it out!
2. SubtleLock (iOS 7) – $1.00
Next up on our list is a tweak for minimalists called SubtleLock (iOS 7)
. If you're one to enjoy getting rid of clutter, then SubtleLock (iOS 7) is definitely for you. Not only does it give you a more pleasing iOS 7 Lock Screen look and feel, but it'll push everything out of the way so you can enjoy what feels like a much more full-screen Lock Screen wallpaper experience. The time is shrunken and placed at the top left of the screen, while the date is placed at the top right of the screen; the slide to unlock text is pushed further down as well. You'll also get the added benefit of being able to see more Lock Screen notifications at once thanks to the less-cluttered Lock Screen interface. We think this tweak is definitely worth taking a peed at!
3. Forecast – 99¢
Those weather freaks out there will appreciate a very popular jailbreak tweak called Forecast
. This tweak brings live weather information to your iOS 7 Lock Screen, including an animated wallpaper to match the weather conditions, as well as the temperature outside (both high and low), and a full five-day and all-day forecast. The live animated wallpaper should look familiar, as it looks the same as the background of the Weather application in iOS 7. This gives this jailbreak tweak not only a super awesome look and feel, but also a native look and feel at that. Oh, and did we mention that it plays very nicely with SubtleLock?
4. JellyLock7 – FREE
is a free jailbreak tweak that has quickly become popular among the jailbreak community; especially for those that like having application shortcuts on the Lock Screen. This tweak lets you set up to six application shortcuts on the iOS 7 Lock Screen, and it offers an all-new experience for unlocking your iOS 7 device meant to simulate much of Android Jellybean. There are tons of different built-in appearance settings, and users will also find that the theming community also offers a ton of support for JellyLock7. Be sure to give this jailbreak tweak a try on your iOS 7 device!
5. Priority Hub – FREE
Last, but not least, we will be showing you Priority Hub
. This tweak organizes all of your iOS 7 Lock Screen notifications on a per-application basis. It separates your notifications into tabs or "hubs," which you can tap on in order to see notifications only for the specific application tab that you're in. For example, if you have two tabs of notifications – one for Messages and one for Facebook, and you tap on the Messages tab, you will only see your Messages notifications from the iOS 7 Lock Screen. The opposite would happen if you tapped on the Facebook tab. This is an amazing tweak and will especially be appreciated by those that always wake up to a slew of notifications each morning and never know where to start – be sure to take a look at it and consider trying it out!

All of these tweaks have been tested to make sure that they're compatible with the latest Pangu 1.1.0 jailbreak; they may not all be compatible with one another.
