    Save your money for something else that comes up in the future, the tweak is outclassed by jellylock which is free and does pretty much exactly the same thing

    That was my impression too. It's too similar to Jellylock to justify paying for it.

    I also think jellylock looks and goes better with most themes.

    Totally agree.

    Jellylock is what I'm using too.

    The only thing Atom is superior is because has 6 widgets and JL only was 5, rest JL is by far better.

    Also, according to one review I read, you are required to set an app to all 6 spots. Where JL doesn't require this.

    They're almost exactly the same location, just atom is a little more towards the bottom, the layout is more spread out which can mess with your wallpaper depending on what you have.

    I'm pretty sure I saw the dev of JellyLock post a picture of being able to have up to 8 icons in a full ring that's a bit higher up like you can on Android.

    I haven't bought Atom because I don't know how it'll look with LockInfo.

    I just paid for and downloaded atom, the issue I have is on the Iphone 5, it's not right thumb friendly, it's too much stretching.

    JellyLock is only superior because it is in the bottom of the screen.

    If atom moved to the bottom of the screen, I would replace JellyLock with it.

    Thanks guys, I didn't even know JellyLock existed until I saw this thread after seeing a review about Atom.

    Does JL have a private repo? I'm not seeing it in Cydia.

    I'm swiching between Atom and Grabby at the moment deciding which I like best.... JellyLock isn't really doing it for me as it looks a little unpolished. Personal choice I guess...

    i like grabby now that the launching bug and black screen are fixed. make sure you have updated to the newest version.

    simple, functional and free.

    The only thing I wish Grabby had is more of the useful icons. I'd rather have an icon for Safari than a gavel, a stethoscope and an umbrella.

    Ah man I wish I would've seen this before buying atom. I do like atom though, it looks really polished. Does JellyLock or Grabby work with SubtleLock?

    I like atom, and it's much more stable than JellyLock.

    I'm sure JellyLock will cost something once it's out of beta too.

    It won't. I talked to dev and he said he won't charge for it because it's Googles idea and basically I got to the vibe he was afraid he might get sued or something.

    How would it work with JellyLock? It works with SubtleLock but doesn't look great and I crashed into safe mode once.

    Cool.

    Well to each their own. Atom definitely is more polished and I like that it permits more toggles, but maybe JellyLock will have this functionality too.

    The dev posted a photo showing we'll be able to add up to 8 like on Android. I dunno when he's going to update it to add that though. I was also discussing with him adding the ability to use one of the targets as a toggle for SBSettings/Activator.

    Had a quick question can you assign bitesms quick compose to 1 of the functions of Atom or does it go into the actual app?
