Over the last month or so we’ve seen several jailbreak utilities end up in the lock screen slider. First came FlashLock, and then CameraLock (both developed by Filippo Bigarella). These tweaks give you quick access to iPhone functions without having to unlock the device.

In the spirt of those 2 titles comes another tweak embedded into your lock screen slider. Like the aforementioned utilities, SuperSlider adds an icon to your slider to give you quick access to any application…

The nice thing about SuperSlider is that you can assign any application to the slider shortcut. You can make it open your SMS, Photo, or even Twitter app from the lock screen with a single tap.

Simply install SuperSlider and tap into its Settings tab. Here, you can select the application that you want to launch from the lock screen shortcut. I had to turn LockInfo off to get this tweak to work, and even then I had some problems.

I like the idea of being able to launch an app with one tap without having to unlock my iPhone, but the lack of stability will keep me away from this one for the time being. If you want to try it out, SuperSlider is available from Cydia and is currently free.

Have you tried SuperSlider? What do you think?

  • james

    its pretty stable right now…….. and useful

  • Josh

    I’m sorry, but from which repo do I download it?

  • kokhean

    Do NOT get this, this is not working well. In fact, it was not even working with me when I tried it just now.

    • james

      its working for everyone…….

      • james

        im pretty sure you didnt select the app from settings….. :p

      • kokhean

        Yes I did, and it stated an error.

      • james

        well but i think you are the only one….

  • Mick

    Works fine for me although I still prefer no extra icons and would rather set up a gesture to open my camera or ipod etc.

  • Manuel

    Kinda off topic but, is there any lock screen tweak where you slide the screen away to unlock your iphone, like the Samsung Vibrant?

    • Sangha

      yup… its called move lockscreen to unlock

    • Mick

      I think it’s called move2unlock incase you can’t find it lol

  • Pieter.steenssens

    Omg I love this where can I download this? Which repo??

  • Michael Wilson

    This does not work for me. No icon appears in the slider. I have followed all directions. Is this compatible with lockinfo?

    • may186

      Experiencing the same thing, and I don’t even have lockinfo installed. In fact, I don’t have any tweaks/add-ons that would affect my lockscreen at all.. Anyone able to help?

  • Chico

    It does. I use lockinfo and I’m already using this tweak and I really like it.

    I think someone could make a few things better like choose more apps and then when you click the button a list with the selected apps opens.

    Also I don’t like the button icon… it doesn’t look that good…

  • Nice App thanks

  • Érico

    this is trash! still a good idea.

  • nandish

  • raven
