    SDK Beta 3 released to developers today. No reason to think next months release date will be missed.

    not only the SDK beta is released, it's also been released to the public:

    cydia repo: http://apt.media-phone.ch/

    there are two versions: lite (free) and the paid one ($5.00)
    website: SmartScreen - MediaPhone

    the lite version only allows 3 widgets and has some other limitations.

    I installed the lite version and this is my problem with it:
    in the repo, although it says: "Most of the widgets are hosted on our APT repository", are only 4 widgets:
    -clock
    -calculator
    -notes
    -devteam rss

    when you install smartscreen it disables the default functions of the lockscreen like the clock and the music player. so you will have to install the clock widget (free widget nr.1), and if there would be one in the repo: a music player widget (free widget nr.2), leaving you with only one more widget to spare..

    is there any body out there willing to pay the $5.00 to test the full version and tell us if all the other widgets are in the app itself instead of the repo???

    I'd love to have the 3G/EDGE/WiFI/BlueTooth toggles widget:

    I like Quickboard better, though it's not quite there yet. Still the top two on my list are Intelliscreen and LockInfo. For full functionality, Intelliscreen beats them all with quickviews and app launch. So it's $5 more than Lockinfo. I'll have one less cup of Starbucks for that!

    I bought the app, but I'm found wanting. Maybe I'm impatient, but I thought there would be some more widgets. I'll just assume they are coming soon. Was hoping to see the weather app since it's in the pics.

    I also thought it would be cool if in the options menu of the Notes widget, which was recently updated, if you could edit it in real time while on the LockScreen. As well as at least being able to chose to go back a note when you come to the end. Or some how flick between them. I know folks are looking forward to Facebook, Myspace and Twitter as well. Thanks.

    Is smartscreen over-riding anyones custom winterboard wallpapers?

    I also wish they would create a transparent widget I could put on the first screen so my wallpaper would be visible. If you hide any widget the widget on the second page fills the void on the first.....

    I bought this the other day, and I love it. However, I have had to switch it off as fifty percent of the time my phone goes into Safe Mode! I'm not sure if this is a good thing to do, but I run iWipeCache which seems to remedy the problem for a wee while. Only for it to happen all over again!
    Are the developers working on this, does anyone know?

    Also the smartscreen cydget dosn't work too well. I would love to use lockinfo and this together, but so far the smartscreen cydget is unstable. Not the fault of the smartscreen developer, since he didn't code it, but I wish they would create their own cydget for it. Because of this I don't use Smartscreen because I get more functionality out of Lockinfo so that's my preffered lockscreen app. Here's hoping to the future that they create their own plugin.

    Thanks for the link, from there I found what programs are not compatible. The only one I was bothered about losing was Snappy.
    Anyway, I made sure I had non of the incompatible programs and tried again. Alas, to no avail.
    I have emailed them, and await an answer
