LockDockBar 0.1

Available In: cydia       Price: Free  

LockDockBar 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.

  1. Nice app. Could come in handy.

    Off topic question: how did you take a screenshot of your lock screen? I’ve been trying to do that but I can’t get it to work.
    Thanks a bunch.

  2. If you have the 5 icon dock installed, this looks dumb.

    • I second that. Too bad … it’s a good concept, too.

      They need to make it customizable so that you may choose which apps and how many you want display.

    • If they made it customizable and where able to put as many as you want on there then you would have an iphone just with out a lock screen.

    • I disagree. I don’t want EVERY icon on the lock screen. I would just prefer removing the phone (b/c I tend to accidentally call people) and the Calendar (b/c I don’t use it often). I would like quick access to my emails and SMS from the lock screen without having to go through the unlocking portion. I also wouldn’t mind having access to the iPod on the lock screen.

  3. I installed this, and got into Safe Mode, installed it again, got another Safe Mode.. Is it because I have 5 Icon Dock installed?

  4. i installed it fine with 5 icon dock but on the lock screen is shifted to the left of the dock so the ability to add another app to the dock would be useful and the ability to change the order and dock icons is a must.

  5. what happens on an ipod touch?

  6. glad everyone else is annoyed at how bad this app looks if you have the 5 icon dock installed. I didn’t think I had OCD until now haha.

  7. Haha…sorry guys I don’t have a five icon dock so I didn’t know that it looked terrible! Thanks for the info.

  8. What about security? Is these mean any one who have access to your phone can check your email, phone contact, SMS and calendar?

  9. This doesnet work in conjunction with Intelli Screen.
    you cannot select anything on screen after clicking on an icon.

  10. A little off topic, but where did you get the battery in the lock screen shot?

  11. That is the Vista battery…check out THIS post.

  12. I mean, this is good but not practical for ipod touch users. It keeps crashing on me.

  13. I had it installed and now my lockscreen hang. Yes I have 5icon installed. Tried to reset (home+power button) but when reaching the lock screen, it happen again. Any suggestion how to bypass it (and uninstall)? Thanks.

  14. Hi there, just wanted to let you know that LockDockBar is not working on 3.0 on a 2G iPhone and forces springboard into safe mode. You probably know that already, just wanted to make sure, since I miss it badly !!

    2 thinks…

    1) I found a bug: If I get called or calling sombody and hang up afterwards and press home — I am in my iphone, without entering my pin.

    2) I would like to know if i could change the apps which are displayed on the lock screen. I would rather have some toys for my 2 years old doughter then my phone and stuff, especially for reason 1) :)

    This app lockdockbar does not work on 3.0.1 b/c it keeps crashing back to springboarb.

  17. Hi. Can’t seem to get LockDockBar to install on my 3GS running 3.1.2 – it installs but then springboard in safe mode…

    Any ideas for me? Thanks!
