  • IntelliScreenX is on its Way Exclusive to iOS 5

    IntelliScreen is a Cydia app that lets the user make the lock screen more useful.

    There's no doubt that most of the people reading this article have heard of Intelliscreen. It's a useful app from Cydia, made by Intelliborn, that moves all kinds of useful things to your lock screen such as notifications, weather, and other downloadable widgets. Well do we have news for you! Intelliborn has released a teaser for the new IntelliScreenX which is fully supported by iOS 5.

    The following video is straight from Intelliborn's YouTube Channel:



    IntelliScreenX has been completely revamped. It now takes the features of iOS to heart and allows you to open notification center from the lock screen. Intelliborn was smart to do this. As with many developers developing widgets for notification center, it makes IntelliScreenX even more powerful than it was ever before. Now you will be able to access all of your notification center widgets right from your lock screen without ever having to dig into your device. Some of such are SBSettings, PowerCenter, WeeRadio, MusicCenter, WidgetTask, and OmniStat. There are also numerous more widgets made available through Cydia. Because IntelliScreenX runs from notification center, you can be sure that all notification center widgets will work with it. This means that when more widgets are developed for notification center in the future, you can be assured that they will always be compatible. As with notification center already, you will be able to see your notifications, stock and weather widgets, and your Cydia customizations form your lock screen and you will be able to scroll down to view them all and play with them. As a bonus, with the new Springtomize 2 just at the horizon, you will be able to set your lock screen to not automatically shut off every couple of seconds so that you will have more time to play with the widgets on your lock screen. So that is a pretty powerful jailbreak combo that will be hitting iOS 5 compatibility very soon. Keep your eyes peeled on Cydia, and stay tuned to Modmyi for information on their releases.

    To activate IntelliScreenX, you need to press the power button when in sleep mode to access the lock screen. Once there, just pull down from the status bar like you would on the home screen or from inside any app to bring down the notification center. Notification center serves as the backbone of IntelliScreenX. You will notice right off the bat that it overlays your lock screen wallpaper, which makes it very beautiful to look at.

    Another new feature of IntelliScreenX includes the, "Top Shelf." This feature is similar to SBSettings in that it lets you toggle things linke 3G, Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, BlueTooth, and more. Also, by scrolling across it you will be able to adjust the screen brightness, and view common system information such as IP address and memory usage. This is a custom widget that Intelliborn themselves wrote for you to use on IntelliScreenX.

    In addition to widgets, you will be able to tinker around with your notifications on IntelliScreenX. In notification center, if you're a very popular person, you will notice that your notifications can quickly become a long list that you have to scroll through. With IntelliScreenX, when you have such a long list of notifications that you feel lazy and don't want to scroll through them all, you have the option to tap on the sections to collapse the ones that you want to skip. This will get the less important clutter out of the way so that you can see the important notifications right from your lock screen.

    It doesn't end there, folks. As well as the main display of IntelliScreenX, you can swipe to the right or left to navigate through what appear to be super widgets. Of these super widgets are a Facebook, Twitter, and RSS feed which are all accessible directly from your lock screen. They are fully integrated into IntelliScreenX and because of that, they won't require separate downloads from Cydia. On top of that, there is a full E-Mail reader. By tapping on an E-Mail that you receive, you can read it from the lock screen. The E-Mail reader is another one of these super widgets. It even gives you the option to delete a message right from your lock screen so that you won't have to unlock your device to delete the message from the Mail app. There is also the option to mark it as read so that the notifications won't bug you anymore, and then of course, the option to open it, which will unlock your device and take you straight to the Mail app. When you use the Twitter and Facebook super widgets, you will be able to like comments, reply to them, and all of the things that you could never expect to do from your lock screen without ever opening the actual app itself. When it comes to the RSS reader, when you tap on something that is news, it will open up a page that is similar to Apple's iBooks reader to make reading the news even easier.

    IntelliScreenX works from more than just your lock screen. When you install it, you can access it from anywhere that you can access notification center from. In fact, when you open notification center, you can simply slide to the left or to the right to open up the several features that IntelliScreenX has to offer.

    Below are some screenshots of the new IntelliScreenX; From Mario Ciabarra of Intelliborn, courtesy of Joshua Tucker:







    Below is how it looks from notification center when you are past the lock screen:



    Intelliborn will be releasing a beta version this week, and they hope to release the full version into Cydia, sometime next week. IntelliScreen usually costs $9.99 in Cydia, and IntelliScreenX will likely follow suit. Anyone who bought IntelliScreen and wants to upgrade to IntelliScreenX can pay an upgrade fee of $7.99. If you bought IntelliScreen in the past 30 days, it will be a free upgrade.

    Are you excited for IntelliScreenX? If so, will you be buying it? Leave a comment below!

      lol @ the troll...get a life, and who the hell is worried about the warranty? I have had my iphone replaced several times by Apple. Never had a problem, just did a fresh restore and shipped it in. I even sent one in that had the iPad baseband lol. Good to go.

      Since IntelliScreenX is activated by pulling down on the status bar the same way that you activate notification center, you will be able to reply to a text message using the stock iOS 5 "slide to answer" technique.

      Sold now?

      No he means reply to text messages without entering the messages app, and in response you should check out the bite SMS iOS 5 features... They pretty much cover your problem and much more all within a iOS 5 twitter integration style ui.

      Yea, this is what i meant. I was hoping to move away from BiteSms because i personally think it slows down the performance of the phone. If intelliScreenX had the same reply features for texts as it does for twitter/email I'd drop $10 for it easy. Hell even $15 lol, cuz it would eliminate lots of other apps i use.

      Yes - old IntelliScreen paid customers will be able to upgrade to IntelliScreenX for a discounted price of $7.99 (people who have purchased in the last 30 days will receive a free upgrade). IntelliScreenX will be $9.99 (and free trial of course) for new users. Yes - we have a reply from lockscreen solution called Messages+ which integrates perfectly into IntelliScreenX. It's separate as it doesn't really fit into that code base and we spent a lot of time (we'll have a beta for Messages+ this next week). (It's a renamed Tlert and a redone Tlert for iOS5). Messages+ will be a free upgrade for Tlert. (New users is $7.99 + free trial)

      That's rough... I've been a long time customer, and only a $2 discount? I understand it's an upgrade, not an update, but at that price, would rather use something else.

      And Elert was disco'd?!? Dang

      Amazing app! I don't want to be that guy that add's my two cents when a developer comes out with a tweak as great as this...however, is there any possible chance that they could add a quick reply for texts or iMessages into the notification center? It's the one thing Apple has yet to add that I can't believe they've put off for this long. Either way I'm spending the money for this...it's well worth it. Just would be that much better with quick reply built in! It'd be your one stop tweak shop!!!

      Looks fantastic! IMHO, Intelliscreen was the key reason to jailbreak.

      Some of you guys are so cheap...

      I don't know, it seems like some of that starts to circumvent the purpose of having a lock screen, i.e. to prevent unwanted data entry without your knowledge. It seems like that becomes more and more of a possibility the easier you make it to do stuff directly on the lock screen without actually going to the springboard.

      Am I the only one who see this as a possible issue with all the lock screen tweaks?

      Since the new IntelliscreenX would be the same price as now. I will buy Intelliscreen today and would wait for intelliscreenX to come out. Since it is a beta this week, would it be on cydia or some beta repo of Intelliborn? If so what is the repo to be added?

      I was close. I said a $10 charge and it was $8. I rolled with the very large price hikes for MyWi and MyWi connect (or whatever it was called and never worked quite right on my iPhone 4 and iPad) but once he came out with that caller ID app and the incredible greedy "pay per lookup" license, that did it for me. I look to use his competitors products whenever I can.

      Used intelliscreen from the day it came out.
      It's the main reason I jailbreak.
      Such a cool app

      Yeah man, I hear that. I've been using IntelliScreen and Elert since my 3G. Always support the products, by purchasing, I appreciate. Which, we should all do. But, with continued hikes like this, what's the incentive to continually purchase these products? IntelliScreen still works, but, only if I remain on iOS 4. If I upgrade to 5.0, then I lose that product since IntelliBorn will not make it compatible with iOS 5.

      My logic may be flawed, but... I purchased IntelliScreen for $10 (though I think it was more, don't remember exactly), since I can no longer use this product, I need to shell out another $8. That's $18 they are getting from me, and only $10 from new users. If I want to continue to use this product, I NEED to pay another $8, as I can no longer use the product I originally paid for. Yes, I do realize I have been using this product, thus getting my money's worth, but, still I think they would have cut existing customers more of a break than $2. And, it's not about being cheap. A beer + tip will cost me more... but, it's the principal. Not good customer service IMHO.

      You have a point, but it may be moot. The reason why Apple decided to implement alerts on the lockscreen is because of demands like IntelliScreen(X) and LockInfo. People want fast, convenient, and more importantly, organized access to valued information. Apple seems to have stopped at just simple alerts, possibly for the same concerns about false input or "butt-dialing" as they call it. However, this is still circumvented by making the iPhone sleep. There have been and should still be settings to keep the phone's screen off when getting an alert. You would hit the home button or sleep button to see the alerts, then unlock you device, and finally open and utilize the app based on the information in the Alert. Tweaks like IntelliScreen(X) and LockInfo allow you to skip a couple of extra steps.

      Also, as pointed out in the YouTube video, just like sliding to unlock the device, you still need to slide down from the status bar with IntelliScreen(X) just to access the info. LockInfo for 4.x and older is integrated directly into the lockscreen.

      I believe there isn't a concern with falsely inputing information with IntelliScreen(X). This will be a definite must when it is released.
