How many times have you mistakenly deleted one of your Home screen bookmarks on your iOS device? If that has happened to you in the past, then you may want to check out this new jailbreak tweak called BookLock.

Unfortunately, the developer of BookLock felt that this functionality was worth a $1.00 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. A dollar for a tweak that features nothing more than a single toggle to prevent Home screen bookmark deletion? Seriously? My advice to you is to just be careful when deleting items on your device…

I know a dollar can barely buy you a cup of the worst coffee these days, but it’s the principle of the matter. I just don’t see how anyone can charge for something like this and maintain a straight face; and you guys know me, I frequently side with developers when justifying prices for their work.

But I just can’t justify this. Be careful when you put your device in wiggle mode, and put that $1.00 in your piggy bank. What say you?

  • Why would someone need that tweak?! And pay a Dollar for it?!

    Moreover, I can easily create a tweak like that in less that 5 minutes.
    I don’t understand too why the dev decided to put it 1$.

  • Another developer with another useless tweak looking to separate users from their money.
