    I use BioProtect. Works well and I have not had any issues. I use it to protect my jailbreak folder so that no one can pick up my phone and start playing around to eff things up.

    It's $2.99 in cydia. A great tweak imho. The thing I love about it is that I get to lock my photos from the actual photo app itself, and it locks it through the camera as well. Previous tweaks just allowed you to open photos from the camera.

    Read the big red txt when cydia first opens. If you haven't previously purchased any of the apps, you will not be able to get them. They haven't turned on any of the purchasing features on cydia yet.

    Am I the only one who sees this as a bit of favoritism? I feel this punishes the developers who already have their apps ready for iOS 8 and these "core platform packages" that aren't so they're locking down purchasing apps all together.

    its only because they want to make sure a majority of these paid apps/tweaks have all the issues worked out before people start paying for them.

    just imagine all the people paying for stuff, then they are all buggy and want their money back.

    cydia is doing it for both themselves and the developers (of course it sucks for the developers who already worked out the kinks)

    BioLockdown Vs. BioProtect

    I'm guessing it's because Saurik doesn't want to deal with the mass amount of refunds requested when a package is purchased and doesn't work on iOS 8.1 yet.

    *beat me by 30 seconds. :p

    Both are paid tweaks. I've used both and I think Bioprotect is better, and I believe it is cheaper as well. If you are looking for a free alternative, check out AppScan.
