Unlock your iPhone HTC style with HTCLock

Unlock your iPhone HTC style with HTCLock
Many will agree that one of the slicker features of Sense is its unlock screen. It’s not the most conceptually mind-blowing features, but it works well and is aesthetically pleasing. For those with jailbroken iPhones that would like to experience a HTC style unlock on their devices or just want to switch up the slide to unlock with something else, a new release to the Cydia store makes that possible.

HTCLock does exactly what you would expect it to based on the title. It adds 4 icons to the lock screen and the famous HTC ring at the bottom. You can slide the ring up to the unlock icon to simply unlock the device or to one of the other icons to simultaneously unlock the device and launch the corresponding application.

Unfortunately, the current version does not allow you to set your own actions, so you’re stuck with unlock, YouTube, Email, and Mobile Safari for now. The good news is it’s free. You can grab HTCLock from the BigBoss repository for any version of iOS right now.

I dont know...its not that much different than Widget Locker's version. Those that dont know...Widget Locker is an app for Android that lets you use any widget and app icon on the lock screen. And it has different styles of unlock screens.
