Start Flashlight, Launch Camera App On iPhone From Lock Screen


Cydia is a place where you can find a solution to almost every desire of yours concerned with the iPhone and other apple devices and the recent discovery of ours is as useful for others as it is for us. Flashcam is an nice utility for apple devices which adds flashlight and camera shortcuts right on your lock screen.


You can install it from Cydia by searching the word FlashCam. As it is the same story with most of the apps from Cydia, it could be accessed from the settings only and cannot be found on the home screen. Once it is installed, you need to enable it from the settings where you also get a number of other options to play around with.


Starting with the options, in Camera Mode you can select whether the camera shortcut on the home screen opens the app in photo mode or video one.


From Camera App you can select any of the alternative apps you have already downloaded on your iPhone. So its not that you can open the stock camera app only but a number of apps too, from the same shortcut.


One of the important options include the ability to bypass the security code, if one is implemented, so that when you access the camera from the lock screen you don’t have to enter the code and when you exit the app after taking the shots, it will relock the device immediately. Scrolling the page down you have a few more options like whether you want the fade way effect or re-dock one in case media controls are toggled from the very lock screen.


You can also change the dock position from bottom to top or vice versa.


Lastly we have Lock when done which relocks the app when you are done with the flashlight or camera. Optionally you can disable the lock sounds also and also can remove the background image of the shortcuts which is then replaced by a small black strip.


Now that you have applied all the settings, and chosen the options just lock your device and take a look at the new tweaked lock screen of your idevice.


Conclusion: I believe accessing and using  the flashlight and camera from the lock screen is a treat and you must download it right away.
