  • 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.

      Yes. I have iRealSMS and it works perfectly. I would suggest getting the Club Life add in and adjusting the config.js file to show you the weather in your location.

      sometimes i wish i never bought intelliscreen they rarely update their app.. this looks much nicer and half the price.

      Salayyad: FYI - IntelliScreen update is underway - completely new design with many new features . Also - while lockscreen is a great alternative - there are some major differences in how things work - for example, IntelliScreen won't crash springboard - as it runs in the mail container, etc. (Not saying that lockscreen crashes - but in all apps - there are bugs ). Good work David on lockscreen

      1. IMO it's a redundant app for lazy people. It;s not that hard to slide the unlock screen.

      2. It will drain your battery.

      3. It adds nothing new to your iPhone experience, and at steep price

      4. Those who purchased it now, will delete it in a month or so.

      5. I owned it, and found it annoying.

      I like this update, being able to read mail from the lockscreen is cool. Reminds me alot of Intelliscreen. I would like to see lockinfo have the ability to reply to a text message from the lockscreen the same way it shows you your email.

      1. Just because you may not find it to your liking does not make the people who do lazy nor does it make the app redundant.

      2. What does this even mean nowadays? Using your phone in general drains your battery. Apps drain your battery. I have seen no complaints of lockinfo sucking more battery life than any other application.

      3.. Personally, I don't use this for mail, but it's invaluable for just checking my schedule/to do list and planning my week, seeing as everything is ordered chronologically. What day of the week is so-and-so's birthday this year? How much time do I have between event A and event B next Saturday? The weather, mail, etc are just bonuses.

      4. I've gotten most of colleagues to purchase or consider purchasing this app. All of them have found it useful. I'm assuming you deleted it after paying the steep price of $5?

      5. That may be, but give the developer some credit. From what I've seen, he's responded quickly and efficiently to the demands of his clients. To find the app not to your liking is fine, but to deny the usefulness it serves to many is just plain wrong.
