LockGlyphX puts a nice twist on your Touch ID unlocking experience

If you’ve ever used Apple Pay before, then you’re likely familiar with the visually-appealing Touch ID animation that appears on the Lock screen when accessing it.

Now if you’ve ever thought to yourself that this animation would be nice to look at when unlocking your device, then a new free jailbreak tweak called LockGlyphX by evilgoldfish is just what you’ve been looking for.

FingerTouch lets you assign gestures to the Touch ID sensor

Lots of jailbroken iPhone owners will tell you that it’s never a bad idea to have more gestures. After all, that’s the whole basis behind the popular Activator extension, which gives you more ways to interact with your device to perform actions.

A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed FingerTouch by Michele Primavera, on the other hand, makes use of the same Touch ID sensor that you use every single day to unlock your device and make App Store purchases to create even more gestures.

Launchpad adds a paginated information system to the Reachability interface

Reachability, a feature designed by Apple to make it easier to tap on things that normally appear at the top of the screen on iPhones with larger displays, has always been deemed “wasted space” by the jailbreak community.

Yet another jailbreak tweak release to try making use of that space is Launchpad, which will give you a customizable paginated information system in the Reachability interface.

This tweak lets you unlock your iPhone with Touch ID even without a passcode

All of Apple’s iPhones since the iPhone 5s, and even the latest iPad models, come with Touch ID fingerprint scanners that let you have access to your device almost immediately without the need to waste time entering a password or passcode at the Lock screen.

However, if you never use a passcode anyways, but you still enjoy the functionality of Touch ID, you can use a new jailbreak tweak called AlwaysTouch.

Nowability adds music controls and recent notifications to Reachability

Those of you who use the Reachability interface at all know that it can come in handy during times when you want better one-handed access to the features at the top of your 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch display.

On the other hand, it leaves a big void at the top of the screen that could be utilized to display additional information about your device, and that’s just what a new jailbreak tweak called Nowability aims to accomplish.
