Also, you can pause and resume the torrent downloading, which will be very handy for users.

How to Lock Applications on Your iOS device [Jailbreak Tweak]

There are many ways a jailbroken iOS device is better than a regular one, the amount of tweaks available that make the operating system better is unlimited. Nowadays, people usually run behind security a lot, as most of their data is either stored online, on their computers and on their mobile devices. Even though all of them are pretty secure, it’s easy to break in to them. We all care about our important and personal data and sometimes we do not want to share it with others.

You can password lock your iOS device, but you can’t normally lock application that might be of much importance to you, for example the Messages, Contacts or Notes app. You might have some sensitive data in some of these applications, certain contacts that you may not want to share with others and important data in your Notes app. Wouldn’t it be much simpler if you could just lock applications instead of everything. There’s a tweak for that!

iAppLocker is a Cydia tweak available for all jailbroken iOS devices that can lock application with password protection for each and every app. You can select, which apps you would want to be locked in the Settings menu and also set the global password. All the locked applications will henceforth require you to input a password to gain access.

As you can see in the above screenshot, every time you launch a locked application, you’ll be asked to type in a password set by you. And, this makes your app really secure, by not allowing anyone else to open it. How to get this amazing Cydia tweak on your Jailbroken device?

Well, first of all, you’ll need to have a jailbroken iOS device. Once you have that, head over to Cydia and search for iAppLocker, install it, head over to Settings and Enable the tweak and set your password and select, which applications you’d like to password protect.

Remember, the tweak won’t get enable right after this. You’ll need to Respring to get the tweak working, the same must be followed when you want to disable it. It works pretty well and I was really impressed, so why don’t you try it out yourself and tell us what you think of it.
