Jailbreaking. We love it, if just since it allows us accessibility to attributes that Apple, for one reason or another, has declined to provide us. At first it was having the ability to have Notice Fixate the lock display before iOS 7 brought it to the masses. We also had jailbreak tweaks that allow us introduce the Cam app from the lock display before it appeared in a main launch of iOS. Now, we’ve becominged one more attribute that Apple hasn’t brought to iOS, and it’s terrific.

Applocker isn’t a brand-new application therefore. It’s been around for a couple of years in various kinds, and it does exactly just what that name suggests. When installed, Applocker permits customers efficiently lock accessibility to apps on an app-by-app basis, with a password requiring to be input each time an app’s image is pushed. Input the wrong password and your app isn’t released. Input the right one, and you’re good to go.

That’s cool sufficient in itself, and terrific if you intend to secure your Phone app to ensure that your kids can not go calling your manager when they’re meant to be playing Angry Birds. Yet this is 2014, and there are better methods than needing to enter into a password each time you intend to introduce an application, and the developer behind Applocker understands it.

That’s why a new launch of Applocker has actually been pressed to Cydia that includes one new, impressive function – – the capacity to open access to applications and folders utilizing the power of Touch ID.

That’s ideal people, with the brand-new model of Applocker, users with an iPhone Fives will have the ability to open their applications and folders using their Touch ID-registered finger prints instead compared to needing to get in a password. If it sounds spectacular, simply hang around till you have actually checked it yourself on your shiny new iPhone 5s.

Although we just observed a comparable tweak released a while ago, named BioProtect for iPhone Fives, which does the exact same chore on one attribute end – – unlocking applications wearing Touch ID – – yet comes at a cost of $ 2.99. The brand-new model of Applocker amounts to simply $ 0.99, and is a cost-free download for those that have the tweak already acquired. And if you’re asking us, it’s a pretty pleasant bargain!

The main distinction between Applocker and BioProtect mostly lies in the user-facing visual appeals, absolutely nothing additional. BioProtect looks much more polished and has a much more catchy UI when compared to Applocker, but we’ll leave this judgment completely for you individuals, still.

As we stated before, the tweak comes at a cost of $ 0.99 for new customers, and is readily available as a free of cost download from the ModMyi repo for those who have actually currently bought it. You must be rocking an iPhone 5s to benefit from the tweak’s Touch ID attributes, naturally.
