    Is it possible to have a couple apps that can be launched from the Lockscreen?

    I added a couple apps to the sbsettings "dock" but that doesn't seem to launch those apps while on the springboard.

    Is there a Cydia/Rock app that enables something like this? I don't really want InfoLock or IntelliScreen...

    Have you tried setting certain apps to "Activator"?

    Point of a lockscreen if you turn it into your homescreen?

    Well I'd like to have the Camera App and the LED flashlight app accessible without, sliding to unlock, putting my password in, opening the right folder and opening the app....

    I've missed a lot of good film/photos because I couldn't get to my Camera App fast enough. Plus I'd love to have the LED flashlight more accessible.

    Well for the camera, there's an app called snappy that can be activiated via Activator at the lockscreen.

    bump for any app that will allow me to open camera via lock screen? snappy will NOT allow it at the lock screen via activator.

    Go over to the bitesms forums they have a beta app call switcherpro, I think. It allows you to open apps from the lockscreen.

    I posted a thread yesterday. Snappy has been updated for OS4 and works perfectly on my i4. Costs 1.99

    SpringFlash works great as well from the lockscreen and its free.
