UI Designer, Sentry of the Auxo fame is back with a new iOS concept.
In his new concept titled “iOS Lock Screen Toggles” he shows how you can easily enable or disable popular Settings toggles from the Lock screen via a hot bar.
Swiping from the right side of the screen will bring up a hot bar, which has the Settings toggles that can be enabled or disabled by tapping on them.
As usual, Sentry’s concept looks great. The hot bar’s translucent background makes it an integral part of iOS. It also reminds me of the Deck jailbreak tweak, that adds a hot bar to the SpringBoard. Check out this post to find out what I mean.
Do I want this concept to become a reality? Frankly, I would still prefer NCSettings as it not only looks gorgeous, it also allows me to quickly enable and disable settings from anywhere in the iOS and not just the lock screen. Though I can see some of you may have a fundamental issue of adding functionality like this to the Notification Center (which is for Notifications).
Also giving access to the hot bar from anywhere in the iOS may not be appropriate (which is probably why he has shown it only on the Lock screen) as it could result in too many false positives and would not work too well with tweaks like Zephyr.
Let me know what you think of the iOS Lock Screen Toggles concept in the comments below.
