  • LockScreen Tricks with LockDockBar and QuickUnlock
    Both released tonight via the MMi Cydia repo LockDockBar and QuickUnlock provide some extra features and functionality to your iPhone's lockscreen.



    LockDockBar

    This utility puts your Phone, Mail, SMS, and Calendar apps on your lock screen above slide to unlock for quick and easy access. Just a quick install from Cydia and you can access all four of the applications mentioned above with a quick finger tap from the lockscreen. No slide to unlocked needed.

    QuickUnlock

    QuickUnlock provides more options for locking/unlocking your iPhone. If your phone is locked simply hit the home button three times to unlock temporarily. After you hit the home button three times you'll be able to browse around your home screen for 10 seconds. If you do not choose an app or hit the home button again during those ten seconds your phone will re-lock automatically.

      LockDockBar I think should have "some" security to it, so nosey eyes cant see what others text or email you.

      Maybe like the QuickUnlock where you would have to tap the icon 3 times when your in your lockscreen?

      the only problem that im having with quickunlock is that it doesnt make any unlock sound and instead of going to the springboard, quickgold pops right up.

      nice one. It would be good to have a pref though to switch this on/off, without having to un/install it.

      Yeah I think some kind of settings page for lockdock would be good so you could assign a number of clicks on the icons to open them. If not we should just have our phones unlocked all the time.

      Your theme is brilliant mate. Not overly keen on the background but the icons and dock are top. Whats it called and is the dock available on its own?

      .....sorry to not post about the actual topic ......erm......

      ....quicklock........nice idea! Keep up the good work and all that!

      I want the dock also, looks very much like WMP11!

      Btw, can someone please tell me if after installing LockDockBar, you have to restart springboard, ie you click "Restart SpringBoard" in Cydia after installing or when you push home Springboard automatically restarts?
      I'm asking because if I restart Springboard, my iPhone goes "crazy", the spinning circle comes up 3 times, iPhone reboots automatically and then spinning circle again comes up twice on the "Enter Passcode" screen, iPhone restarts itself and 70% of the time it will go into "Safe Mode", something about MobileSubstrate, *sighs*.

      Thanks!

      I see it is based on the dock. I have a 5 icon dock and this is what it looks like. How can I get another one in there? Like the ipdod?

      Picasa Web Albums - Justin - Drop Box

      I donmt know how to get a screen shot of my lock screen... :-(

      For us that use the 5 icon dock and custom themes or some type of graphical/text overlay dock, it would be cool if this utility had its own icons rather than using the existing icons. This would also allow the icons to be customized by the user.

      Outside of that, this utility is awesome and works great!!! But unfortunately I cant use it unless the icon issue is addressed, because my custom icons look stupid in this arrangement.
