  • Element Now Available - New Lockscreen Cydget......

    Hmm...pay close attention to this screenshot... pretty cool huh? Even has missed calls.

    We have a new Lockscreen App on the streets tonight. The highly anticipated Lockscreen App, Element, has now been released. Element, designed by Teehan+Lax and implemented by Elias Limneos, provides access to all of your most needed information right from your iPhone's lock screen. Whether it be a recently missed call or a new e-mail message, you will no longer have to drill down deep into the device's UI just to see what's new.

    You should look at the screenshot again. Its so awesome! .....

    While I haven't had a chance to test drive this personally yet..... , but I would imagine that its going to have some work to do yet, to compete with other apps such as David Ashman's LockInfo. But as time goes by, I don't doubt to see many extensions coming to this. The framework should set up a fairly simple way for developers to extend it's uses.... in the near future.... sometime...

    Did you look at it again? I swear you have to look again, its so cool....

    Element has been implemented entirely in WebCycript, and installs to your lock screen as a Cydget, making it fully compatible with all existing Apple lock screen plugins, as well as most other third-party extensions.

    Grab it live on Cydia..... or try to find it.. mwhaha

    Twitter / Jay Freeman (saurik): Element, designed by @gtee ...

    If you havent noticed already, the screenshots indicate this is an april fools joke April fools joke from @saurik, Although it appears you actually CAN download this... although the short description says "A Lame attempt at an April Fools Joke"

      Just downloaded it. Looks nice but pretty useless ATM. Displaying random read texts, laggy cuz of stupid
      stocks and text is too big. Nothing seems to be customizable ATM either (maybe I'm not looking hard enough)..I'm sure it'll get better though

      While I'm all for April Fool's tomfoolery, it's pretty annoying when the April Fool's joke is that someone ACTUALLY kept a promise. Not completely this, considering that it actually works, but here's an example: remember PogoPlank, the SpringBoard replacement? They said the second version of PogoPlank would be available sometime Fall 2009. They tweeted yesterday that they FINALLY had a--get ready--SCREENSHOT of it. First of all, it's Spring 2010. Second, it was a fooking JOKE. 4-5 months overdue and they can't even produce a screenshot. Frankly, I want my $2 back.

      @troyhouse Just tap the middle of the email bar and it will expand or retract the info. Just remember it only shows UNREAD emails.

      I also can't get the emails to show up...I have uninstalled and reinstalled the cydget and element...still no go on the unread emails...have also tried every combination of enabling disabling every option under element settings.

      Anyone with mail working that has nor than one sync account? I use addexchamge and have 4 mailboxes that update via push...not sure if this Is a problem. I even removed lockinfo and all plugins for lockinfo

      Thats strange...I too have 4 accounts and three of them are set to push, but the emails are showing up properly for me.

      Have you tried tapping in the center of the email bar?

      Yup...I have hit the bar in the middle...I can see the little arrow on the right change as if it's expanding/contracting but nothing shows. Calendar is working fine...just email not working. Did you use addexchange for the multiple email accounts...they're basically all ms exchange accounts...but I tried on my wifes 3GS and it isn't showing email either, and hers only has 2 email accounts which were setup normally through iPhone mail setup...I'm on firmware 3.1.2...anyone else with the issue or been able to resolve?

      I'm having the same issue and i'm also using multiexchange. I'm actually liking this, it seems faster than lockinfo. I think it need a few more updates and to integrate push notifications but it's really good.

      Ya'know, email tab was working for me a couple of hours ago...but then I came here and things stopped working properly. *site must be cursed*

      I actually think I screwed things up when I started experimenting with push settings for my mail. It's probably another app I have that's interfering with Cycript...or something...
