PaperLock adds yet another mod to your iPhone’s Home screen

By , May 31, 2012

PaperLock, like Unfold, and Unlockize before it, adds another “slide to unlock” modification to your iPhone’s Lock screen. PaperLock — as its name not so subtly implies — is a tweak that lends a paper-like “page turning” look to your iPhone, similar to what you see when you turn a page in iBooks.

Out of the box, PaperLock comes with three high quality themes: paper, plastic, and bandage. It should be noted that the graphics where designed by renowned iOS theme designer Surenix; hence, when I say high quality, you can believe it. How does it match up with other Lock screen mods? Check inside for the details.

PaperLock looks and performs beautifully, the graphic design and animation properties are absolutely top-notch. Sadly, there are only three themes included in the package, but as noted each theme is of a very high quality.

The main problem with PaperLock is the price. At $2.99, it’s more expensive than both Unfold, and Unlockize, and when compared to Unlockize, it’s fairly bare bones. My suggestion is that you take a look at all three videos, and see how they stack up for you personally. If I had to choose between the three, it would be Unlockize, which gives you a perfect balance of features and price. Of course, that can all change with a few updates, so keep in mind future expandability as well.

Head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo if you’re interested in trying PaperLock, and let us know what you think about it in the comments below.

    Price makes it ugly.

    I like the animation so far. But I think it’s a little buggy. Whenever I lock my iPhone from within an app and then unlock again, the app fades in like being started right now. Maybe it’ll be better with future updates..

    2.99 Too Expensive

  • Anonymous

    I agree 100%.

    $3 for something that adds absolutely no functionality at all? Tho it wouldn’t be the first now would it?lol

    Give it week or so,……..There will be another tweak by someone else that does that same thing that is free or much cheaper…….Like a lot of other simple, overcharged tweaks, someone will create a similar one for free.

    props on the animation tho. It does look to work quite fluent and flawless…..but nevertheless….Too little for too much in my honest opinion.

    Even if he added an array of page turn animations, it still wouldn’t be worth “anything” to me personally. I like the slide to unlock.lol. However if he found some really cool animation themes I’m sure he would sell a lot.

    MovetoUnlock is the original and includes multiple animations you can choose from and customize. It doesn’t play nice w all tweaks though so try before you buy.

    For 2.99$ it should come with 5 themes and a free week pass to American Family Fitness

    EXACTLY. MOVE2UNLOCK IS WAY BETTER. SAME THING AND I DON’T REMEMBER BUT IT MAY BE FREE or even 1 dollar only. Check ouT MOVE2unlock. I am surprised JEFF did not mention that as its predasessor. (sp) but who cares. JEFF, did you forget?

    Doesn’t seem to work with lockinfo, glad i tried out the ‘free’ version first

    Unlockize works MUCH MUCH BETTER than PaperLock…PaperLock still needs some fixes…

  • No Whammy

    @Jeff, what does the camera icon swipe look like? Same as stock, I’d assume?

    Does it work with AndriodLock XT? Because Unfold and Unlockize don’t.
    Will definitely buy it if work with AndroidLock XT.

    Unfold crashes my iPhone every other time I use it I’ll try this new tweak

    I cannot answer a call when the phone is locked. When it rings and I “turn the page” there’s my background… plain, not showing the caller while the phone keeps ringing… :(
