Loving this tweak. Put six of your most-used apps on your lockscreen. Slide the bottom icon (slider) onto the app you wish to open. Slide it onto the unlock icon to open into your home screen.

I grabbed this when it was first launched, love it. Kev have you found that it's a little bit buggy? One thing I would definitely like to see with Atom is a delay when releasing the actual Atom switcher, just so if you miss the app you want to select you don't have to tap, hold and drag again - it would be easier just to drag it straight to the app again and launch either the app straight away or your keypad.

Overall a really nice looking app, it's replaced unfold.

Don't get this tweak....if you go to the trouble of putting app icons on the lock screen why bother having a lock screen....security becomes an issue...may as well do away with the lock screen and open straight onto the springboard (thus accessing all your apps at all times). Using "Activator" gestures would be a better and neater option in my opinion...

Good point. There are tweaks that allow you to bypass the lockscreen altogether. I use a passcode lock so this wouldn't work anyway.

I never use a passcode on my lockscreen, so I don't mind using this tweak. I use two pounds of C4 strapped to the back of my iPhone and a remote detonator for security. I call it my Mad Max solution.
