Axial is a beautiful tweak that gives you quick access to your favourite/most used apps as you bring up the Control Center. Sure we’ve seen similar tweaks but I feel Axial stands out with its customization options. Check out what I thought of this new tweak…
Jacob Carabello known for his Lockscreen tweaks like BuddyLock and AppBox, comes his latest offering…Axial, and it doesn’t disappoint.
Swiping up from the bottom brings up your Control Center and Axial’s quick launch apps. The smooth animation when the apps fade in from the top adds to the overall feel of Axial.
Once installed you’ll want to head into the Settings to configure Axial. Here you’ll find loads of customization options, you can enable/disable Axial on the Lockscreen, select which apps to have in your quick launcher, apps per row, opacity, size of apps, and more.
I personally love tweaks that have a bunch of customization options, allowing me to get a feel and look that works best for me.
If you really want, you can have up to 16 quick app shortcuts
A stand-out feature of Axial is that you can bypass your Lockscreen password when selecting an app in your quick launcher directly from the Lockscreen. Definitely a time-saver, maybe you want to write a quick note, look up something in Safari, or even listen to some music, it’s easily accessible, Axial will bypass your passcode for the apps you choose.
Axial is a beautifully made quick app launcher, giving you customization options that let you make Axial really yours, and I think this makes it stand out for me. I’ve played around with Axial for a few hours now and I can already see that I’ll be using it pretty regularly, I’ve often wanted to quickly write a note, sometimes even check my emails as I don’t use push notifications. Axial is a tweak that you never knew you needed, until you used it.
Axial is now available on the BigBoss repo in Cydia for $1.49
