  • LockInfo 2.0 - The Most Comprehensive LockScreen App Available


    LockInfo, developed by David Ashman, who also brought us WeatherIcon, has updated LockInfo to 2.0 bringing a plethora of new features making it the most complete, and comprehensive LockScreen app available for the iPhone.

    LockInfo is now completely interactive, infact, so interactive that I find myself unlocking my iPhone less and less, completing most tasks right from the lockscreen. I can preview emails, delete emails, mark emails as read, and so on for SMS and Push Notifications. That's right, push notifications are now featured in LockInfo.

    I simply tap on an email, and the windows swings around showing me a preview of the message I wish to read. By tapping a refresh icon, I can check for new mail as well. Read and manage everything from your lockscreen quickly, and smoothly, I **** you not. There are privacy settings that will allow you to hide SMS Texts and even be more specific and hide just subjects and modify preview settings.

    New features in 2.0 include:
    • Push notifications right on your lockscreen.
    • Preview your emails from the lockscreen. No need to unlock.
    • Delete your emails after previewing them.
    • Mark emails, SMSs and push notifications as read directly from your lockscreen.
    • Manual refresh for mail, weather and twitter plugins.
    • Privacy settings to hide SMS text and email subjects and previews.
    • Adjustable font sizes.
    • Performance and stability improvements.
    • Note that many of the new features do not work with HTML themes for LockInfo (Gruppled, 235lax, etc). To take full advantage of the new features, you should turn off the HTML themes in WinterBoard.
    LockInfo 2.0 is available in Rock and Cydia for $4.99. Check it Out now via the ModMyi repo

    Next week I will be featuring a LockScreen showdown between the various LockScreen apps we currently have available in the JB Community. We'll go into detail about each and compare their pros and cons.

      I'd pay TWICE as much for this app if I could view the LockInfo feed by dragging my finger down from the status bar like on Android.

      Go into the weathericon settings ( settings / weathericon) and turn "override location" off. I had the same problem and drove me nuts.

      go into Lockinfo (settings / lockinfo) and then "plugins" make sure "weathericon" is the only weather related thing listed. If you see "weather" too, make sure it is NOT enabled.

      I'm also having the same problem as Gemonic.. I've been trying all day long to get the weather icons(and temp) to show in the forecast dropdown. I can only get it to work if I use a HTML based theme for lockinfo, but then I lose the ablility to review email messages and mark sms' as read(which are a few of the features I LOVE with the app).
      So... I decided 'Native' is the only way to go for me, until someone can figure out how to enable all the features of the plugins in an HTML based theme.

      So, to summerize, I've tried:
      - Installing WeatherIcon(app) and weathericon plugin(obviously),
      - Serveral different setting variations within WeatherIcon and Lockinfo,
      - I even tried moving all the weather icons and weathericon plist files into the springboard.app folder within my current theme.

      I know I've tried more, but I've had no success. Someone PLEASE help me with this before I pull out all my hair!!

      have a 3.0 jailbroken (purplera1n) 3GS, unlocked to O2 UK.

      tried the latest lockinfo 2.0 trial, have enabled it in settings, but see nothing on my lockscreen. dont have intelliscreen, quickboard, cydget or any other lockscreen app installed.

      any ideas as to why my lockscreen still only shows the standard clock and slider?

      For the longest time I was having trouble with apps. You have to update to 3.1.2 because LockInfo uses modified and new calls from 3.1.2. There's another tweak that I know of, MobileVolumeSound, that doesn't work on 3.0 (though I'm sure there are many more as well).

      Get with the program!! *kidding* =]

      Um, I'm actually still on 3.0 and it's working fine for me. All I did was install from Cydia and activate it.

      Only problem I noticed was it not viewing new mail I had. I then got the Aqwuoh (sp?) Lockinfo theme and that fixed everything.

      OMG!!
      I honestly can not believe I never checked that!! I recently rebuilt my phone (as I do from time to time to speed it back up) and I never added my location to the iphone weather app!.. it had new york and some other weird city in there.

      I removed the 2 cities and added mine, then voila! it works!

      Your the man Heelfan!!!! I don't know what I'd do without this website, thanks to everyone who helps out on this site!!

      got it to work on 3.0 by simply installing the matte theme from Cydia.

      Can anyone help me out here? I was installing LockInfo to test out, and when I went to add the weather or the clock add-on, it went thru fine in Cydia, but then when I hit the re-spring button, it stayed re-springing, and the dial kept spinning forever. I tried to cancel out with no luck. Then I tried to get out of everything while holding the on/off button and the home screen button together. Now I have the apple logo and can't get back to my phone. iTunes saw my phone when I plugged it in, but then the apple stayed on the screen, and I had a spinning wheel over the apple. This made me nervous, so I did the on/off and homes creen button again, now I just have the apple, and it's not being recognized in itunes anymore. PLEASE HELP>>>>>>

      Edit:

      Still have the apple logo w/ a spinning wheel under it. But my iTunes is recognizing the phone, and I can even play my music off the phone thru iTunes, but my screen is still the apple logo and spinning wheel. My phone keeps chiming like it's being recognized by the computer too. But it just won't come back to the real home/lock screen. I really don't want to do a factory restore. Any ideas? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

      Also should say I'm running 3.2.1 jailbroken 32GB 3Gs

      this is great news psuskeels. cant wait. however there has been a bug between intelliscreen and cydial for quite awhile now. [basically once the weather info pops up in intelliscreen i cant scroll or activate the cydgets] i reinstalled intellidial and the issue went away. so i contacted saurik about the bug and he said its not his issue.its intelliborns. contacted intelliborn but they never got back. ive found a work around. i double tap the home button bringing up the ipod controls[this clears the weather(FYI- doesnt work to just hide weather by tapping on the date/time) and then single tap one more time to bring up the cydialer. then i can activate. weird huh? the soul reason why ive chosen cydialer over intellidial is that its GUI is much nicer. no other reason. so all in all, im just curious if this issue will be included in any part of the new intelliscreen update? thanks
      Yes, I am waiting eager for the update too. I myself is an IntelliScreen supporter for almost 2 years. Despite the fact that Puskeels said IntelliScreen never crash with MobileSubstrate, the problem still persists.

      I also like Cydial more for the same reason. And IntelliDial and IntelliScreen cannot go with Cydget, which could host a lot of potentially very useful Widgets.

      Now I am a happier man with the Combo of LockInfo, Cydial, Cydget, Reminder, and rarely have a crash nowadays. I get exactly what Intelliscreen can offer for the beautiful Calendar, Weather, Email, SMS, Missed Calls/SMS/Email reminder alerts, almost 90% of everything IS offered.

      And I can leave the potential of putting other Apps on top in the future, which IS simply prohibits.

      I am still eagerly waiting for IS to update to solve these problems, as I am still holding the licence.
