UnlockBright: An Eccentric Brightness Tweak for Your Lock Screen

Feeling eccentric? If so, then why not add some interesting brightness controlling functionality to your iPhone’s slide-to-unlock bar, by means of UnlockBright?

UnlockBright is an interesting jailbreak tweak, because it combines the slide-to-unlock bar with your iPhone’s brightness settings. The weird thing is, that these settings aren’t permanent, they only take effect as you’re unlocking your phone.

Confused? Take a look at the video demo just after the break…


I can already hear the shouts of “useless” from the iDB faithful, but seriously, hear me out.

UnlockBright could prove to be useful for those of you who like to check the time in the middle of the night, but often find the iPhone’s brightness settings to be utterly blinding.

With this tweak, you could theoretically set your iPhone’s brightness to absolute minimun, and crank up the brightness setting in UnlockBright.

That way, when you go to check the time during the night, a subtle slide of the unlock bar will provide you with enough light so you can see, but not enough where it makes your eyes hurt from the brightness.

I know, I’m kind of reaching for usage possibilities, but that’s just one that I thought of off the top of my head.
