    Pattern locking has been one of the most impressive capabilities of android which lacks in the IPhone. By default the iPhone only provides pass-code locking. Because of the limitations of the i-OS it does not allow any external application to make such changes in the way the operating system. Jail-breaking the iPhone comes to the rescue, because after that you can install applications which can completely alter the looks and ways of functioning of the iPhone. These applications cannot be installed from the app store but from Cydia, which functions alike the app store, although it carries the applications with features which the apps from the app store cannot perform. Just like the app store Cydia also carries a range of apps some free and some premium.

    It is a mis-belief that that jail-breaking the iPhone is illegal. It is totally legal to jailbreak the iPhone and modify the OS as you want. But it is illegal to install pirated apps or apps which are present in the app store and are essentially paid! The apps present in Cydia are not pirated apps but apps created by individual and developers who are not associated with apple.

    ilock is a tweak which lets you add a pattern unlock to the iphone so whenever you arrive at the lock screen you are presented with the dots which you need to connect to enter the home screen. You can choose how many dots you would like to have, [3×3] ,  [4×4] or [5×5] and if you want to repeat lines etc. All you need is an iPhone or an iPod touch with iOS version of 3.1 or higher.

      • Hi Annie,
        That is because you need to jailbreak your iPhone and then install AndroidLock XT via Cydia. Apple does not provide this feature by default. If you are interested in Jailbreaking, google “jailbreak” followed by your device name.
