LockLauncher: Launch Apps from your iPhone Lockscreen

There are times when you wanted to access an app on your iPhone and were delayed thanks to the lockscreen. Yeah, I love using Slide to Unlock, but sometimes it just makes me look bad. Suppose you’re having a race with an Android buddy to get to an App and see who opens it first, well, imagine how you’d feel if you lost. LockLauncher is an iPhone application, available in Cydia, that creates shortcuts to apps and places them right on your Lockscreen. Thus, you won’t have to slide to get to the app.

However, there is a problem here! You see, if there are apps on the lockscreen that anyone can access, then what’s the point of locking the screen?

This is where LockLauncher starts to get better, as it has a really cool way of accessing the apps placed on your lockscreen. Yet, when you click an app placed there, it won’t open right away. You will have to use the Slide to Unlock and the app will directly open, or rather it’ll already be open the moment you unlock. This will actually be of great help if you don’t want anyone to open the apps directly. That’s not the best part!

You can also launch the apps in a sequential order, meaning, select all the apps to open them back to back in order of selection. How cool is that? Select all the apps, unlock and you’ll be presented with the last selected app, press the home button and the next one and so on. Pretty useful if you’re a spontaneous person. Check out the video after the break by iDB to see LockLauncher in action.

This app can be downloaded from the Big Boss repo in Cydia for a very worth price of $0.99. You can place up to 5 apps and this will work best with iOS 4.2 and above. Do give it a try, and let us know what you think of it.

The Naked truth of Nudeit Apple iPhone Application

Yesterday I posted about Download iPhone Nudeit application : Watch people nude and undoubtedly many people downloaded it. Video of this apple iPhone application seems so promising that people thought of it for real and downloaded it. Just to verify the authenticity of nudeit iphone application, I spend my precious .99$ and downloaded this application from iPhone Apps store.

First time when I run this application I was shocked that even the welcome screen of this page is no where close to what they have mentioned in the video. I found myself cheated at that moment.

I activated nudeit iPhone application and put my friend in front of camera, and as expected this iPhone application comes out as a scam and it sounds like a prank played by the creator of this application and more over I feel pity for iPhone guy on making this application part if Apps store. No doubt marketing guys for nudeit application has done a great job, but at the cost of people money.

See the screenshot and the funny part of this application

IMG_0104 IMG_0105

Can you see the cartoonish body of a man there below the face. This application is using the face recognition technology and thus add a semi-nude image of a guy or a gal and that’s what this application is all about.

Apps store should have mentioned about this application that it’s a prank iPhone application and what ever is written in the description of the application is a complete hoax and so is the video added for marketing of this application. IMO Apps store should not have accepted such application.

What’s your opinion about such software?
