  • 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.

      LockInfo 2.0 is on ModMyI. Just make sure you have the ModMyI source installed. On the battery question, I only have anecdotal evidence, but there is no noticeable battery drain from LI itself. The majority of battery issues comes from the fact that people tend to turn on their screens more and leave them on to view the lockscreen more, resulting in higher battery drain.

      Also, I think it's important that people voice positive and negative feedback on the product. This is a public forum and everyone is entitled to their voice.

      LockInfo uses WeatherIcon to handle weather updates. The standard way to do that is to set the first location in the default Weather application to your location. If you are using an HTML theme for LI, it's a different game.

      How customizable is this? Is there a way to swipe to the right or left to hide the lockscreen info temporarily?

      This is in the ModMyI repo, but it is only titled LockInfo.. NOT LockInfo 2. He has simply updated LockInfo 1. I was confused by this myself as the article presents it like a new app.

      SORRY. It is too much.

      If you lose your iphone and someone else finds it...they instantly have access to your stuff!

      If your iphone is stolen...same scenario!

      Living in the real world, where bad things happen every day, this easy data accessibility makes it pretty simple for some neanderthal to have access to your private data!

Good work David on lockscreen
      Kinda nice way to plug your product and bash his all in one post. I'm buying lockinfo just because of this post. I was torn between the two but not anymore.

      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

      This is crap. Had the original LockInfo. Went to Cydia and got 2.0. Paid through Amazon and activated the license via the link in settings. Disabled Gruppled Lockinfo like it suggests. went to settings to configure it, turned on calendar, now I get nothing but Sad iPhone, reset after reset. Thanks, Ashman.

      Perhaps you should contact the developer before posting here with a complaint. I just purchased this 5 mins ago with zero conflict. Don't put your lack of ability on the developer. It just makes you look foolish.

      No need to be a douche. The fact remains that if I remove the package, my phone works. If I install the package, it's Sad iPhone all day long. I happen to love LockInfo. I got it for my old 3G, configured Gruppled LockInfo for it, weather and all, before all of the pieces were readily available on Cydia. So, my "ability" is quite up to par. I immediately reinstalled it once I got my new 3GS. I was completely jacked when I saw the 2.0 release, and am severely disappointed that it refuses to work on my phone. And I have contacted the developer. Last time I checked, message boards are for posting complaints, just as much as they are for posting rave reviews. So, if I sounded a little annoyed in my previous post, I get that way when my phone doesn't work. Keep your asinine comments on a stranger's technical competence to yourself. It makes you look like a self-important little asshat.

      you keep saying "my phone". Therein lies the problem. It's your phone that is the issue. Your "complaint" is nothing more than a technical issue that requires technical support and not really a review. Perhaps the developer can help you find out why your phone is the issue.

      download the plugin. Once you get that you can use the todo. However once I installed this I rebooted the phone to make sure it took. I feel foolish because I can't figure out how to remove the default clock. Right now I have both the default clock and the clock plugin on my screen.
