We already know that the iOS 5 is going to introduce a very handy feature that allows to launch the camera application directly from the lock screen, to save some time to unlock the screen and launch the camera application from the Springboard. Then there are some other Cydia tweaks that allows to launch some specific applications from the lock screen. But now we have yet another interesting jailbreak tweak called SuperSlider that allows to launch any application from the lock screen of iOS device. All you have to do after the installation of the application is to go to the Settings and assign an application. Afterward when the button with the Apple symbol placed right beside the unlock slider is pressed (see the screenshot below) on the lockscreen – the application that you selected earlier will be launched. Its that simple!
Don’t forget that you need to have a jailbroken device for this to install and make work!
Here is a demo video that shows the SuperSlider in action:
You can install the SuperSlider for free from BigBoss repo in Cydia.
