LockToggle adds handy settings toggles to your Lock screen

Folks who have yet to find a Lock screen-settings-toggle tweak that suits their needs will be happy to know that another one has been added to the pile this weekend. LockToggle, by developer Haifisch, gives you quick, one-touch access to some of the most common iOS settings, without you having to unlock your device…

As you can see in the screen shot above, or in the video below, the tweak accomplishes that by adding system toggles to your Lock screen. The toggles are represented by a scrollable list of icons that, by default, rest on top of the ‘slide to unlock’ bar, and include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, screen brightness, volume and many more.

The tweak itself is about as straightforward as they come. Once installed, you can enable it from within your Settings app, as well as move the icons to the top of your Lock screen. Unfortunately, that’s about all you can do—there’s no way to pick which toggles are displayed, and no way [that I've found] to rearrange them.

But for what it is, LockToggle works great. Tapping an icon immediately enables a disabled setting, and vice versa. I don’t think it’s for me, as I’m fairly happy with Lockbar Settings Lite, but I’m sure other folks will find it very useful. If you’d like to check it out for yourself, you can find in Cydia, in the BigBoss repo, for free.

Have you tried LockToggle yet? Thoughts?

      Hey, I might add a feature to auto disappear in the future

    Just out of curiosity (already do this SBSettings and LockInfo 5), how well does it play with notifications? Are Notifications going to be overlying it or what?

    dumbed down version of lockscreen toggles which is infinitely better.

    • iosPixel

      Yep. I would suggest the developer abandon the project, take what he’s learnt and implement this into a new project with an air of originality.

      Check out the blackberry preview of its new iOS. See if there’s anything in the way of lock screen tweaks that you can draw inspiration from. I have yet to see any of those features ported. Could be a niche.

        This may be the case, I might have to drop it. My Mac is having serious boot issues and I might lose all the source code.

    batterydoctor pro beats all

    I prefer NBSettings over SBSettings, nice and neat tweak that has all the toggles I could think of. I use mostly flashlight/vibro/wifi on my 4s and notification bar enabled in lock screen does the job just fine.. With LockToggle in my pocket I would keep on toggling with my switches, I’d say it’s nicely done, although IMO not very practical.

    • Haifisch

      Originally it was double tap to toggle, I forgot to revert the code back to that in the newest version

      • Nando

        In the new version you can do a pull bar on the side so it does not interfere with any notifications… N scroll up n down will ne nice..,

  • Haifisch

    Definitely going to fix that

      Soon Please

    Now why is there less and less tweaks for the iPad? There were way more for iOS 5 but with iOS 6 it seems that the tablet is lucky enough to get any tweaks at all. Is it because the iPad costs more and that less people have them?
