LockDockBar is an application that allows you to launch your Phone, Mail, SMS and Calendar apps from your lock screen. When you install LockDockBar, it will automatically add the icons to your lock screen (it does not add an icon for the app to your SpringBoard). You can then launch and use any of the four application right from your lock screen. Once you are finished using any of the apps, you will be brought back to your lock screen. If you select the Home button at any point while using the apps, you will also be brought back to your lock screen. It also displays a badge on the icons (on the lock screen) indicating if you have any missed calls, texts and/or any new email.
I do have one issue with this application. If you have a passcode on your iPhone, it bypasses the passcode to open the applications. Meaning, that anyone could get into your contacts, email, SMS info, Calendar info, make a phone call…basically they would be able to see a lot of your private information. If you do not normally keep a passcode on your iPhone then you probably don’t really care about this. But, for those of you who do have a passcode on your iPhone (that includes me) you might want to skip this application.
