One of the most popular lock screen tweaks is called Atom, developed by Surenix and Daniel Turner and it has finally been given support for iOS 8 and optimized for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Atom is the kind of tweak that people jailbreak for, a tweak that lets you launch your favorite apps from the lock screen with a grabber that replaces the Slide to Unlock text. Holding down the grabber will bring up a circular collection of up to six of your favorite apps. To launch one, simply drag the grabber to the icon and you will be asked to enter your passcode or Touch ID if either are enabled.

Customizing the lock screen to be more functional is one of the main reasons why people jailbreak and, as such, Cydia is full of tweaks. So what makes Atom so special? One of the reasons is because the animations are so smooth and, along with its simple but sleek design, the smoothness is one of its biggest selling points. On top of that, the app icons in the grabber are optimally spaced so you can easily get to the one you want. In terms of changes with the update, the grabber style now changes depending on what your lock screen wallpaper is.
