Locktionary – LockScreen Dictionary Search on iPhone

It happens a lot of times that you come across a new word and do not know what it means. Those are the times when you need a dictionary, but all you do is open the Safari app in your iPhone and search for it on the internet. However, that is not the fastest way to search for word definitions, and even Apple has not provided a stock dictionary app by default in iOS. So you need to get one such app from the App Store.

But if you use a jailbroken device, you can save yourself all that trouble. Locktionary is a new jailbreak tweak that has recently been added to Cydia’s BigBoss repo, and this tweak brings you the meaning of any word directly from the Lock screen. So you don’t even need to unlock your iPhone or talk to Siri to know the definition of a word. Isn’t it cool ? Know more about the features of this tweak below.


  • Locktionary is a minimalistic and simple tweak that adds a plan search box on the Lock screen. You can use the search box to find word definitions right on the Lock screen. locktionary-dictionary-1 locktionary-dictionary-2
  • In case you are wondering, the tweak doesn’t use the internet. It actually works with the built-in iOS dictionary to bring you word definitions. So just type a word in the search box and tap the Done key. The tweak will give you the definition instantly. Then the Done button can be tapped again to go back to the Lock screen.
  • Locktionary’s latest version 1.1.0 allows you to enable/disable auto lock on the Lock screen as well as the whole tweak. You can find these options in the tweak’s preferences pane inside the stock Settings app.

Locktionary is a very straightforward and simple tweak that proves very useful in daily life. It brings you word definitions in a second right on the Lock screen so that you don’t have to go through the hassles of installing a separate dictionary app or searching the web. Some users might find the white search box a bit ugly or intrusive on the Lock screen, it does what it claims to do. We do expect the developer to improve the UI and overall design of the tweak to make it look more native with iOS 9.
