    Awesome new tweak from Ryan Petrich currently in beta and only available in his beta repo (http://rpetri.ch/repo/). Basically you slide the camera grabber up a little bit then slide your finger to the left and you can launch a different app (customizable in the settings) ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21365934890.641816.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21365934908.254172.jpg

    Just wanted to say that this is one of my favorite tweaks so far.
    Some slight performance hiccups and visual glitches aside, this works very well and solves a real issue in iOS elegantly. The UX and design feel just like something that Apple would implement, which is extremely important to me (I'm OCD about this stuff).

    As such this sits along tweaks like Auxo and Tap To Widgets (notes/event/reminder) as my favorite things in jailbreak.

    Themed slider knob yes. But no on the themed camera grabber. I believe the tweak uses it's own images and ignores winterboard.

    Grabby - lets you launch different apps from lockscreen

    New update (0.2) today added the ability to have 1-5 icons instead of 4 and the ability to change icons! Also added a stock icon for Calendar.

    Now it just needs to load the app in the background so it doesn't fade to black for a second before opening the chosen app. Alternatively it can just keep the screenshot displayed while loading the app to avoid the jarring black screen.

    Great tweak.

    Does the tweak actually launch the app on the lockscreen or do you still have to unlock your phone after tapping on an app?

    The single best thing about this tweak is that it lets me replace the camera app that gets opened without a passcode then it goes back to the lock screen after use.

    I'm now able to ditch the standard camera app from the lock screen now, yay!
