Get an elegant Lock Screen with LockSmoother+

By | December 17, 2014

One thing that many people from all around the world enjoy in life is elegance. In the case that you have an iOS device, but aren’t really fond of the main UI tweaks that are displayed by default, then LockSmoother+ may be a great Cydia tweak for you to try out.

As the name implies, the main goal of this app is to go ahead and make sure to provide users with both a sleeker looking but also smoother lock screen that can greatly improve the overall appeal of a smartphone.


When it comes down to the ease of use of LockSmoother+, it is safe to say that it’s as easy as it gets to be honest. Once the Cydia tweak has been downloaded from the BigBoss repo, users can go ahead and enter its configuration panel to enable or disable certain features of the Cydia app. With this in mind, you can go ahead and decide whether you would like to hide the date, the charging text, insert a custom text instead of the standard ‘slide to unlock’ and much more. Additionally, users can also go ahead and hide the status bar, the camera grabber, the Control Centre grabber, or deal with status bar dulling, all of which are factors that aim at providing a clearly more elegant and sleeker experience from all the points of view.

The Cydia tweak also features an advanced section which includes features such as the ability to modify PIN field circles diameters, width, or even remove the darkening effect that appears while sliding your lock screen to unlock your device.LockSmoother-preferences-1-1024x908

However, one unfortunate thing about the app is the fact that it is not free; although it may have scored incredibly well if it was. Users who are interested can go ahead and purchase it for $0.99 from Cydia’s BigBoss repo.

While the Cydia tweak may not have the best configuration panel, it is clear that it manages to do its job quite great, as users who have tried it only had positive things to say about it. With everything that has been stated so far in mind, what do you personally think about LockSmoother+? Is it a Cydia tweak worth having? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
