LockLauncher 2.0 is out with support for iOS 6 and iPhone 5

It seems like there’s been a lot of tweaks updated lately to support iOS 6 and the new 4-inch display on the iPhone 5. There’s Mail Enhancer Pro, ToDoNotes 2, and iBye. And today, we are adding another one to the list.

LockLauncher, a jailbreak tweak that lets you launch multiple apps at once from your lockscreen, has been updated to version 2.0. The update includes several improvements, including iOS 6, iPhone 5 support and more…

Here’s a video demo from the LockLauncher developer, Akhil Tolani:

And here’s the full change log for version 2.0:

-Updated For iOS 6 & 4 inch screen devices.
-Fixed Icon Sizes and Positions.
-Icon Badges & Labels Support.
-Added KillSwitch, User Guide, Position in settings.
-Overall improved Performance, Settings & functionality.

Once installed, you can configure all of LockLauncher’s options from the Settings app. Here you’ll select which apps that you want to appear on your Lock screen, and their position on it. And there’s a new enable/disable toggle.

As seen in the demo video above, while you can launch the apps from your Lock screen, you have to actually unlock your device to access them. That’s nice for folks with Passcodes set, but inconvenient for almost everyone else.

It’s a cool idea, being able to launch an app from your Lock screen and having it pulled up when you unlock your device. But it’s not for me. If you’re interested though, you can find LockLauncher in the BigBoss repo, for $1.99.

    the changing apps has got to have some sort of animation – a fade to or push off the screen. a sudden change looks a bit too funky IMO

    Is it compatible with LockInfo 5?

      I’m still waiting ICSlock Pro, unfortunately I sent several mensages to the developer, even in twitter and I don’t have any answer… It seem like we’ll never have an update to iOS 6.X :'(

        You should look into “JellyLock”. It’s in beta and not on the main repos yet but the copy I have works perfectly fine. Look up “Multiple Jellycuts” on YouTube. Follow the dev (@Max_katzmann) for the latest betas.

    Don’t know why, but it kicks me into safe mode… no other lockscreen tweaks install nor are any lockscreen settings selected in Springtomize.

    What’s the constant fixation with beingly always online, if you had something to say to your fB friends you’ll speak with them in person, i can’t imagine what a drag would be to get Notification for every damn thing that happens on facebook.

    I’m patiently waiting the day we see fb is filing for bankruptcy.

    I bought it but like someone else stated it keeps crashing and putting my iPhone into safe mode smdh

    Another way to run apps from the lockscreen! Just what the jailbreak community needed: the 90th iteration of the same useless concept.

    Seriously, why don’t people just get rid of their lockscreen if they want quick access to shit?
