'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!

Anyone can test this with IntelliscreenX. Will ISX fill the empty space?

What about Lockinfo 5, is it compatible?

I have gotten emails about the weather and tap to unlock features of LockInfo that have visual complications, which will be fixed in an update, another issue I have come around is with Fold to Unlock, and SBRotator, and With Tempus there is an issue with the media controls not being resized, which I have already fixed just, waiting to be submitted, In my screenshot in Cydia I have the ayecon theme applied which has caused some confusion and I apologize for that, If anyone has issues or questions feel free to email me, I will try to get everyones questions taken care of in a timely matter

Almost bought this, but the screenshot in Cydia shows the slide to unlock bar being much skinnier. It's been reshaped, as well as had excess space removed.
Can anyone confirm if that's an option? Or which screenshot is accurate? I like the one shown with this article.

Looks nice but the lock bar is weird maybe make the slider thinner too.

yes, the idea is cool but you need a better sense of spacing and alignment in UI designs. no matter how much you reduce a frame there has to be some spacing between what's inside and its borders.

This would really look great along with sbrotator

$1.00 for this tweak? I really don't get it. SBSettings (which I would estimate 95% of JB users have on their phone) is not only one of the most widely-heralded and widely-used tweaks, but it also FREE.
How do developers gauge the value for their product, really?? (3vasi0n don't charge for their JB either)
