Sometimes individuals use Cydia simply to browse through the store and see what’s accessible. During a lot of circumstances, the information about a tweak or package does not really give away that abundant of an excellent deal, that the best thing to do is; install it on the device and play around with it to see what the functionality is and what the tweak or package offers. The new LockDate tweak does not come with an extended list of knowledge, however it’s quite evident what it will.
LockDate has simply hit Cydia and comes from the developer named Arash Amini, providing nothing quite alittle aesthetic modification to the manner the lock screen is rendered when the device is in sleep mode. The lock screen on a native installation of iOS shows a wallpaper also because the slide to unlock bar at the bottom of the display and a prime banner that shows this time and date beneath it. When installation, LockDate stays true to the native setup, however provides the user the power to change the look of the date label also as adding some touch-based gestures to the lock screen party.
Once installed, the tweak does not add any extra home screen icons however does come with a good sized preferences panel located within the Settings app. One among the must-have choices for any tweak in my opinion is that the on/off toggle, that fortunately LockDate will have. It also comes with a section to alter the text, color and font of the lock screen date label, permitting users to choose the label color, size of the font, whether or not or not to apply any drop shadow and whether or not or not any swipe or tap gesture should be enabled.
If swipe gestures are enabled, it permits the lock screen to display dates from a number of various calendars with the tweak having support for the Gregorian, Buddhist, Chinese, Hebrew, Indian, Islamic, Japanese and Persian calendars therefore it caters to a set of various cultures, therefore should you ask for such an possibility, it is there. LockDate is by no means essential tweak, however it’ll likely appeal to those that do not wish to made drastic modifications to iOS, however who desire a very little a lot of management over sure visual aspects.
LockDate is accessible from the BigBoss repo as a freed from charge installation and needs a device running iOS 4.0 or above.
