  • 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 keep getting the following message attach. I do the respring, and Lockinfo loads, but after about 30 minutes, I get the same thing. I am not making any changes either. Anyone have any ideas? I am looking to purchase the app, but want to get this fixed first. Thanks.

      Does anyone have issues with your phone hanging after typing in your last digit to unlock?

      I use to have this issue with LockInfo when it was in beta and figured it probably would be fixed by now, but my screen locked up the other day when I tried to input my password.

      you'll have to check w/ the developer who made that specific theme. I had the same issues so I disabled the theme.

      These are my main missing features:

      1. Calendar that shows only 4 events but still possible to scroll for more (+ more than 28 days).
      2. Manual mark as read in mail and sms.
      3. Possibility to choose which popups/reminders you should block or not - for example I alwys want to block Facebook popups but not reminders for calendar events.
      4. Removal of Badge on Springboard icon when you have dismissed a notification in the lockscreeen.
      5. Direct links to each app(mail, sms, push apps, phone etc) from the Lockinfo preview.


      Edit: Ok, some of these features(marked red) were actually a part of todays update.

      FrontContacts is the perfect cydget companion if you use LockInfo as a cydget. I like it better than cydialer cause you can sms from it.

      I tried using Smartscreen as a cydget and it just crashes repeatedly.

      I just added lockinfo to my iPhone4 but it does not display in my lock screen. The home screen and shade work perfectly fine, but the lock screen is the one I want it on the most. Any suggestions?
