LockApps adds an expandable app shortcut menu to Lock Screen


The iPhone’s lock screen gives you a straightforward and user-friendly experience. However, if you are a heavy iPhone user, you may prefer functionality rather than user-friendliness in particular, and you may know that you need something else. With the release of LockApps jailbreak tweak, iOS developer ginsudev has reached a good compromise between functionality and user-friendliness, replacing the lock screen standalone camera app shortcut with an app drawer, including all of them. Programs you want to access quickly.

Once installed, a new shortcut button with three small squares appears instead of the lock screen camera app shortcut. The small squares in the screenshots above indicate the app icons, which is not surprising.

The way to go to the app drawer and style shortcut page is the same as going to the camera from the lock screen before installing the lock app. You can either perform 3D touch / haptic touch motion on the designated shortcut button or just slide your lock screen from left to right.

LockApps tweak Features

After installation, users can configure the tweak from the dedicated preference pane in the Settings app.

  • Turn LockApps on or off on demand
  • Select which apps appear in the shortcut interface, similar to an app drawer.
  • Choose how many app icons appear in each row (1,2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8)
LockApps Tweak Settings

The developer has added an Apply button in the upper right corner of the screen to save any changes you make.

Specifically, LockApps launches apps from the lock screen with an app drawer-like interface to authenticate itself with biometrics such as Face ID, Touch ID, or passcode. Therefore, you can access your favorite apps more quickly without compromising your privacy or security.
