Get an awesome Lock Screen on your iOS device with Atom

By | February 18, 2015

Opening an app from the lock screen is easy to do with phones made almost all companies except for Apple, which has decided to allow users to be able to open the Camera app only from the Lock Screen. However, this is about to change with the release of an interesting Cydia tweak known by the name of Atom.

Now, the famous iOS jailbreak app is getting a big update in order to make it work great with iOS 8 and the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. As a new developer has joined the team, the new version of the tweak will probably be available in the Cydia store this Friday.atom-lock-screen-1024x847

In order to understand how this tweak works, it basically provides apps in the form of atoms on the lock screen that users can then open. In order to get any of the customizable apps to open up, users will have to drag a nub found on the screen directly on to the app that they wish to open. In the case that the iOS device is protected with the passcode, they’ll have to type it in right after moving the nub above the app that will be opened.

Based on these factors, it can easily be said that the Cydia app is easy to use by just about anyone who can drag and drop. The app also comes with a couple of more features which are also quite interesting, but the possibility to customize the apps featured is exactly what makes this Cydia tweak great.
