• Customise the clock on your Lock screen with TimeMover

    Drag and drop, pinch, zoom, and rotate your way to a perfect set up.

    The Lock screen clock has been virtually the same on iPhones since Apple shipped the original around 10 years ago. There is a lot to be said about keeping a formula that works, but change is what jailbreaking is all about. One of the most difficult things to accomplish when creating a new set up is moving UI elements around to exactly where you want them.

    Developed by NeinZedd9, TimeMover lets you drag and resize the Lock screen clock in a new and elegant way.

    After purchase and installation, you simply tap and hold on the clock to initiate editing mode. You're then able to drag it around with one finger, pinch and pull with two fingers to resize, and rotate. These gestures should be familiar to most people at this point. You are able to see the changes you make as you make them. As far as we know, this is the first tweak to be able to do this for the Lock screen clock.

    Make your Lock screen yours.

    With TimeMover, the Lock screen clock is now able to be moved around in WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) fashion. When you decide to change wallpapers, moving the clock to that perfect place is now as easy as drag and drop. This takes a lot of the guesswork out of the whole operation.

    In the past, other tweaks have tackled the issue by providing a preference pane to enter values in order to change the position. While this has always worked in the past and still does today, compared to drag and drop it seems a little clunky. Yet, as jailbreakers, we value diversity above all else, so more options are always welcome.

    In TimeMover's preferences, you can fine-tune how many settings work.

    Upon entering the preferences in your Settings.app, you are welcomed by a beautiful header framing the top of your screen. There are a few groupings of cells for different types of options, they are:

    • Tweak Enabled
      This enables the tweak.

      Toggles edit mode on or off.
    • Enable Long Press Edit Mode
