'HomeDisplay' Adds Useful Information to the Home Screen in a Second Status Bar
If you want to add even more useful information to the home screen, you can now do so with a new jailbreak tweak called HomeDisplay by iOS developer Michael Poole.
Shown above, HomeDisplay adds what looks like a second Status Bar right beneath the usual Status Bar. The second Status Bar houses information like the date, outside temperature, and even music information if you have music playing:
All weather information is drawn from the Weather application, so if youíre using a specific location for weather, that information will be used, while on the flip side, if youíre using your location for weather, than your locationís weather information will be used. The music information shows your currently playing song and the artist it's by. The information scrolls from right to left.
The second Status Bar only appears on the home screen. It doesnít appear on the lock screen or from within applications, so you donít have to worry about your precious screen space being taken up by dual Status Bars. The additional information is a nice touch to the home screen.
You can easily enable or disable HomeDisplay from the tweak's preferences pane in the Settings application:
HomeDisplay is compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch, but not yet the iPad. It can be installed on any device running iOS 6.0 or later. If you want to give it a try, you will find it in Cydia's BigBoss repository for $2.
Requirements: iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 6.0+

If only it can be customized... If u pause music, the music will still display until u close out the music player... kinda annoying...

Fahrenheit app will display temperature from the app icon. As an alternative.

Cool tweak. I hope the background of the status bar is an image and not code.iPhone 4 - iOS 7.0.4 Jailbroken

This is a great concept, but I don't like the way it adds itself as a second status bar instead of expanding the first, and customization for diff icons (i.e. caller-id, typestatus, sms, email, missed calls etc.)...
Oh yeah, and it's not adding $2 worth of functionality....IMHO

I've noticed two things with this tweak:
1) It seems to drain my free memory
2) I cannot seem to get the temperature to adjust
