Earlier, we showed you how to add quick-launch shortcuts to the iOS Lock screen. Now, an app called AppSlider adds similar capabilities allowing you to customize the iPhone lock screen and making it much more useful than it is “by default”. With AppSlider cydia tweak, you can add two different application shortcuts to lock screen slider of your iPhone that suits your preferences. These shortcuts will help you make life a little easier on the iPhone.
By cutting-down the slider’s width, AppSlider allows you to add two different custom application icons (one in left and other in place of default camera icon). For example, you can configure Cydia app on the left side of slider, and as soon as you click the cydia icon, application is launched. Similarly, if you need a quick way to call, text or e-mail someone, you must install AppSlider jailbreak Tweak on your device.
AppSlider can only be installed on jailbroken devices and once installed you can add two application shortcuts to either side of the slide to unlock bar via the Settings.app. I really like the idea of being able to add two important applications that I want to do on my iPhone and AppSlider does this very well. It is clean looking, very well done and definitely has some potential.
AppSlider tweak costs $0 and can be downloaded from Cydia store under BigBoss repository. Once you’ve installed on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you’ll be able to quickly phone home, send a message to your friend, or open a favorite app by adding the shortcut you want. It is worth checking out for few days to see if it works for you.
