Faces Pro

Creators: Ben Rosen

Github | Cydia Repo

Faces Pro is a free and open-sourced tweak that adds images to your passcode buttons. It builds off the tweak Faces, which had overwhelming success, reaching over 1,000,0000 downloads. I decided to extend on this, by creating a new tweak that has the same basic functionality but adds a beautiful view right in the Settings app that fetches the passcode view right from the lock screen and lets users tap the passcode buttons to add images.

I also added a feature where you can attach a contact to a passcode button, which results in a speed dial if held down. I open sourced this code so others can learn from the code. Available on Github.


Description

Faces Pro takes an already established method of adding pictures to your password lock buttons and simplifies the process further while also adding much needed compatibility for other passcode tweaks and features.

With Faces Pro we sat down and thought, "how can we make this simpler?". Our idea was to bring the familiar passcode view into the settings to clear up exactly where eachimage is going. With subtle animations and clear instructions, we've come up with a new way of personalizing your device which really stands out from the rest.

We've retained all previous features as well as adding a new option to tint the buttons to your specified color. We've also added a feature many have asked for, quick lockscreen dialing. Assign contacts to buttons and quickly dial the contact straight from your passcode view.
