LockBuilder is a new tweak that works with LockHTML3. It is the best way to customize your lockscreen. LockBuilder allows you to create your own lockscreen design without touching any code.

It is very simple to set up. All you need to do is install it from Cydia, manage a few toggles, and that’s it! LockBuilder works with LockHTML3 as well as working with any Groovylock themes you have!

Here is a list of everything that LockBuilder can control:

  • Temp
  • Icon
  • City
  • Humidity
  • Description
  • Date
  • Time
  • Text Time
  • High
  • Low
  • Update Time

There are also some pre-made widgets in LockBuilder which are:

  • HTC style clock
  • 5 Day Forecast
  • uniAW Animated Weather by Ian Nichol
  • Radar that will show US radar (Other countries are coming)

LockBuilder also has the ability to add application icons to the lockscreen (some will not open if you have a passcode). Here is a list of supported applications so far:

  • Tweetbot
  • Mail
  • Facebook
  • Music
  • SMS (if you have biteSMS it will bring up QuickReply)
  • WhatsApp
  • Instagram

Also, LockBuilder comes with 3 default icon sets as well as full Winterboard support. So you’re icons will change depending on your theme! It also has full wallpaper support (including dynamic ones), so you don’t need to worry about a ‘wallpaper override’ from your theme! LockBuilder also includes a color picker so that you can set up the perfect text to wallpaper contrast that you want. It also supports text shadows which you can edit on the fly! There is also BytaFont 2 support which is great!

So this is a lot to take in and that’s a good thing. LockBuilder has a ridiculous amount of flexibility and it’s the perfect fit for your device.

LockBuilder supports iPhone 5/5s on iOS 7 and is $3.99. To purchase it, head over to this site and send a donation with your UDID. They will set you up and give you the repository!
