Thread: Convergance: A bold new direction

  1. #1
    Default Convergance: A bold new direction (Preview)
    It's time for a bold new direction.

    Convergance is a complete lockscreen replacement for iPhone and iPod Touch.

    It brings a new paradigm to unlock your device, an uncluttered way of dealing with lockscreen notifications, accessible settings shortcuts, interactive widgets, and a rejuvenated design.



    Widgets

    iOS provides access to information such as the weather, but there shouldn't be a need to unlock your device to view it. Convergance takes this information, and displays it directly on your lockscreen in the form of widgets. A crisp RSS reader, your calendar, and the week's weather are all provided as default widgets, with more being available in Cydia.


    Themes

    Convergance also features it's own built-in theming engine, allowing you to fully personalise your experience. Do you prefer even more minimalistic design? It's catered for. Further themes can be easily created, and switched between without restarting iPhone.

    HTML

    Support for HTML lockscreens is also built in, allowing you to continue using the custom lockscreens you love, and to tailor Convergance to your tastes. Any lockscreen from GroovyLock, LockHTML or Cydget will run without any modification, with full support for interactivity. A lockscreen dim delay is also provided in the Advanced settings.

    API

    Convergance provides APIs for both HTML/JS and Objective-C developers to use. For HTML/JS developers, the selection of widgets can be easily extended, as Convergance will allow you to load up your HTML into a widget.

    For Objective-C developers, an API is provided for creating further widgets. Example code for this can be found here: https://github.com/Matchstic/Weather...--Convergance-


    Design doesn't just run skin deep. It's the way something works. It's the way you interact with something.
    Sometimes, design must evolve. It needs to take a new direction.

    This is that new direction.


    Please note that iPad will be supported later probably in the same package.


    FAQ

    Q. The weather widget just shows "No weather data"?
    A. Please esnure you have Background App Refresh enabled in settings for Weather, and then add a new city to the weather app. Respring, and it should now work.

    Q. The lockscreen freezes when tapping on a notification, leading to a respring!
    A. This is almost certaily being caused by Couria - you need to update to the unofficial version I host on my repo here: repo.incendo.ws

    Q. How can I add further RSS feeds to the RSS widget?
    A. Go to Settings > Convergance > Widgets > RSS > Feeds, and hit the + button. Make sure your feed has the exact URL, such as "http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/world/rss.xml"

    Q. Why aren't many tweaks supported?
    A. This was a limitation of version 1.0.4 or lower; version 1.1 brings a wide range of support for many tweaks.

    Q. Why does the camera crash when opening it?
    A. This is caused by other tweaks interfering with the lockscreen camera in some way. Usually, the best way to figure out what's causing it is to use iCleaner Pro - go through the MobileSubstrate section, and turn off each dylib in turn (DO NOT turn off MobileSafety), respringing in turn.

    Q. How do I use the status bar / Notification Center with Convergance?
    A. Both of these are coming back in version 1.1!

    Q. When using AndroidLock XT, it hangs when unlocking and returns back to Convergance.
    A. Please ensure you're using version 3.3.1 or higher of AndroidLockXT



    Further updates are coming, with 1.1 probably being the biggest yet!

    Beta versions of Convergance can be found at repo.incendo.ws

    Cheers, been a lot of work to even get this far! I'll be providing resources to create both themes and widgets by the end of this coming weekend, there's a fair amount to write up for that

    Well my grammar was pretty bad so you probably could have literally said it better than me. Guess I should learn to proof read. I'm just so lazy.

    I'll love to run Convergance and melt a custom UI deeper into iOS.

    This has been very mouth-watering until now. You're a great developer Matt 👊👌
    The theme in my posts is 3 4 All, by Sk37cH.

    The numerous versions released, and infinite versatility, beats IconOmatic mods. By quality.
