Customize your jailbroken iPhone’s locking animation with AnimeMyScreen Pro

Many jailbreakers are deeply familiar with the concept of customizing their handset’s user interface and its animations. While there’s certainly no shortage of jailbreak tweaks available for facilitating this task, we’re excited to show you one of the latest releases dubbed AnimeMyScreen Pro by iOS developer Antony M.

You may recall a similarly named jailbreak tweak called AnimeMyBadges that was released approximately one month ago, and while that tweak focused primarily on the animations of notification badges, AnimeMyScreen Pro is instead used to customize the animation you’d see when locking your handset.

AnimeMyScreen Pro incorporates well over a dozen different animations to pick from, including those that remind us of flipping the page of a book, the Mac’s famous genie effect for the Dock, the timeless TV off animation, and several others. Below are some animated GIF examples for the curious:

Zoom Out

Once installed, AnimeMyScreen adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app where users can configure AnimeMyScreen Pro however they want:

The options found here are:

  • Toggle AnimeMyScreen Pro on or off on demand
  • Randomize the locking animation
  • Choose from one of 18 pre-installed animations
  • Configure the animation speed by way of a slider

The list of animations available include:

  • Zoom Out
  • Flip
  • Reveal
  • Push
  • Cube Right
  • Cube Left
  • Page Curl
  • Page Curl Left
  • Page Curl Right
  • Rotate
  • Genie Effect
  • Genie Effect Bottom
  • Genie Effect Top Middle
  • Genie Effect Top Left
  • Genie Effect Top Right
  • Reveal from Top
  • Reveal from Bottom
  • TV Off

As you might’ve noticed, some of the animation styles are different variants of those already existing – for example, the Genie effect has several different styles, including one that shrinks to the bottom and one that shrinks to the top middle, etc. Without counting the different variants, there are actually 10 unique locking animations provided by AnimeMyScreen Pro.

One thing worth noting is that AnimeMyScreen Pro’s animations appear whether you invoke your handset’s locking manually with the sleep button or you let your handset time out via the auto lock feature. In either case, you’ll always have something nice to look at.

Those interested in trying AnimeMyScreen Pro can purchase it for $1.99 from the Packix repository via their favorite package manager. The tweak officially supports jailbroken iOS 13 devices.
