If you want to improve on the incoming phone call interface on your iOS 7 Lock Screen, then check out a new free jailbreak tweak called Cou by iOS developer dantesieg.

Cou will replace that Silde to answer slider on the iOS 7 Lock Screen with Accept and Decline buttons so that instead of a slider that forces you to slide to answer, you can just decline the phone call with the tap of a button.

It's worth noting that when an incoming call is alerting you and you see the Slide to answer button, you can press on the power button to decline the call, but the touch controls feel like a much better way to handle declining a phone call, and the tweak can even benefit those with broken power buttons.

Cou adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure the tweak to your liking:



From here, you will be able to enable or disable the tweak on demand, as well as enable or disable the Reminder and/or Message buttons from the Accept and Decline interface.

If you wan to give Cou a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. iOS 7 is required for the installation.
