Thread: QuickWidgets - A Free Alternative to SmartScreen

  1. #1
    Default QuickWidgets - An Almost Free Alternative to SmartScreen

    UPDATE: The word QuickWidgets might be deceiving. This app is actually a package of QuickBirthday, QuickSMS, QuickCalendar, and QuickBoard. These apps are NOT free. Guess there should be fine print on this one. Sheesh

    After SmartScreen was released only just yesterday, QuickWidgets, although somewhat beta still, has suddenly drawn some attention.

    With the same idea in mind as SmartScreen, QuickWidgets offers various widgets for your lockscreen that you can manage, move, and customize to your hearts desire.

    Not only can you move them around, but if you shake the iPhone, you can quickly move any of them, and even resize the widgets individually, which is something SmartScreen doesn't offer.

    Now your probably wondering, well, what's so great about QuickWidgets. And the simple answer is, I have no idea. SmartScreen only just came out and I expect to see some widgets for it shortly. However, QuickWidgets comes to Cydia as a FREE app. Yup, that's right, free.

    So if you don't feel like forking out the money for SmartScreen, than I recommend you check this out. In order to download this you will need to add the Cydia repository:

    Just a note, QuickWidgets is still beta.

    The iPod controls are still available on SmartScreen, just takes 2 taps of the home button.

    I'll use this instead of SmartScreen for sure!

    EDIT: Just Installed, there's no icon on springboard and nothing in settings, can someone please explain to me how to configure it? Thanks!

    To my understanding you need quickboard? And if so is it true it doesnt work on the latest firmware for the 3Gs?
