“Soon we’ll need a lockscreen for our lockscreen,” states a comment on our YouTube video for LockGestures. Frankly, I couldn’t have said it better myself.

LockGestures is a jailbreak tweak for the iPhone and/or iPad that takes the “lock” out of the lockscreen. It’s a tweak that adds a plethora of multi-touch gestures right on the area that used to be solely reserved for unlocking your device.

Now, you can do everything on the lockscreen — launch apps, adjust power options, even make a sandwich. Okay, so I’m just kidding about the sandwich part, but you get the idea. Check inside to see the full scope of LockGestures in high definition video glory…

If you’re interested in adding additional functionality to the somewhat boring lockscreen, you can pony up $1 and download LockGestures today from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. As always, you’ll need a jailbroken device in order to do so.

What do you think about LockGestures? Good idea, or do you believe they’re treading into sacred territory that shouldn’t be messed around with?

    The single tap with two fingers and pinch gestures are conflicting for me.

    Wish you could integrate this with bitesms quick compose! Anyone knows how to?

    Awesome! I’m guessing that something like this is what Mr Jobs is one day hoping will eliminate all buttons.

    It’s really sad that these gifted developers are shunned by the App store. God bless Cydia!

    • Possible, though an Apple implementation would be something of the next level. I still think that the Home button will be here for the foreseeable future.

    For some reason my slide gestures (up, down, left and right) don’t work. I have tried on both my iphone and my ipad.They work as soon as I restart the devices. But after the first time, they stop work. Doesn’t anybody know what’s going on??
