Don't you get sick of the same old slide-to-unlock method.
Stride is a hole new way to unlock your device. It is a jailbreak tweak under the BigBoss repo and you can get it for $2.99
Once you get it, you open up the settings to choose the way you want. You basically just draw what you want as a password. But before you get the drawing part you will face the slide-to-unlock again. That is the main downside in my opinion.
To sum up, you will slide to unlock, then you will draw to unlock in the awesome 8-bit style, then you will write your pass code if you enable it.
What if I forgot what to draw? The developer hasn't miss this detail. You can always press the button on the bottom-right of the screen to dismiss the drawing part.
