Upcoming ‘AppSlider’ tweak places two app shortcuts on your Lock screen

Do you have a couple of apps that you just can’t live without? Do you find yourself wishing for a way to launch them directly without hitting your Home screen?

If you fit the above criteria, then check out this video preview of AppSlider. This is an upcoming jailbreak tweak that lets you specify two app shortcuts for your Lock screen…


Configuring your favorite two apps is just a a matter of visiting the settings panel for AppSlider located within the Settings app.

For those wondering how this works when you have a passcode enabled, don’t worry; it respects the passcode security and it won’t launch an app until the passcode is entered successfully.

AppSlider is in development by Ron Melkhior, and should be available for free on Cydia in the near future. We’ll let know know once it’s available.
