You can now add two app shortcuts on your lock screen with this jailbreak tweak dubbed “AppSlider.” The tweak is pretty smart. It allows you to add two apps for easy access on your lock screen. You don’t have to go through the Home Screen to search for those apps you often use.
We’ve seen different jailbreak tweaks that provide shortcuts with gestures, sliders and of course, the functional Activator. Basically, the tweak adds aesthetics on the lock screen. You can customize the two apps you want to access.
We can’t live with a couple of apps, right? We bet you have arranged your apps on first page of Home Screen to access them all. However, with this tweak, your two favorite apps will be non-negotiable even on the lock screen. This jailbreak tweak was developed by Ron Melkhior. He also developed some of the tweaks we’ve covered such as CamSlideShow and SmallBanners on Notification Center.
For those of you who want to place the two app shortcuts, simply go to Cydia, tap Search and type “AppSlider”
After installation, you can configure the tweak on Settings app. Toggle the Enabled On under its General settings and set the Number of Apps in Two. The tweak allows you to choose the apps you want to place on “First App” and “Second App”
I set my two favorite apps I can’t live without. I checked the Dictionary app for the First App, and You Version’s Bible for the Second App. Make sure you tap the Apply button at the upper-right corner for the changes to take effect.
As you can see, the lock slider was automatically placed in the center. Overall, the tweak is very functional. It’s simple and customizable.
