Thread: Lock Calendar 1.0b Beta Test
03-04-2009, 10:19 PM #1Lock Calendar 1.0b Beta Test
I finally found some time to work on Lock Calendar, and I'd like your help getting the next version ready for release. I'm slowly chipping away at some of the user requests, as well as trying to make it even better than it already is.
Here's a listing of the changes for 1.0b:
- Added multiple calendar support
- Added several new configuration options
- Max Time Interval now starts from the beginning of the interval instead of the current time
- Added support for the "Time Zone Support" Mobile Calendar option
- Optimized Calendar Database access
If you're interested in participating in this beta test, the package is located at:
To install it, you'll need to copy it to your device, SSH in, and run the following commands:
dpkg -i lockcalendar_1.0b.deb killall SpringBoard
Here's some pictures for your viewing pleasure:

Looks awesome! Can't wait for the official release!

Nice update. Testing away
Love the ability to select colors.
In the color selection page(s), how about printing the text in it's corresponding color:
ie: Dark Grey in gark grey, Blue in blue, etc. Oops, I just realized white on white won't show. Maybe the field with a color bar indicating the color after the black on white text.

Nice...I was hoping for text color and font. Will test later today..

I want to test but I don't understand the command that needs to be run - anyone enlighten me? I already have lock calendar installed (0.3) - can I just overwrite the info in the lock calendar folder with the beta release and respring?

http://www.volatile-dev.com/LockCale...endar_1.0b.deb to your computer. Open your SSH client (like WinSCP), Copy the downloaded file to your phone (any place, just remember where it is). Navigate to the folder on the iPhone where you downloaded the file. Then Commands/Open Terminal, enter command "dpkg -i lockcalendar_1.0b.deb". This will install lockcalendar. Then enter command "killall SpringBoard" ..... OR .... log-off WinSCP and reboot or respring. Both will accomplish the same thing.
Done It's now OK to delete lockcalendar_1.0b.deb. deb file no longer needed.

Thanks mes - only one problem - I can't SSH into the phone ; don't have a wifi network! I can get into it using iphonebrowser via USB - can I do it that way? If so, how do I go about doing the command bit?

Is it not possible to do via iPhonebrowser at all then?

you can transfer the deb file to your iphone using what ever program you want.
then use MobileTerminal on the iphone to run the command line.
use "cd" w/o the "" to change directory to where you dropped the file. then run the command line.

I am not seeing the options in settings. It was there but now it is not, how do I get it back.
03-05-2009, 12:05 PM #13
Works great. I will play with some of the settings and report back.

This is really looking good. Love the granularity of the fg/bg color and font controls and the ability to choose which calendars are displayed.
A couple of minor suggestions...
Is it possible to adjust the leading between lines of text? To my eye, there's not enough space between events (or between a date bar and an event) and too much space between title and location within an event. This could be adjusted in code and not exposed to the user as a setting.
A setting for "Display locations" (on/off) would be nice to have as well.
Other than that, I think my wish list is covered! Great work.

@Volatil-Dev : You are a genius and THANKS a million !
Your new Lock Calendar is simply sublime!
Kudo and "chapeau bas" for your brilliant app that I just updated, and in one word : PERFECT !
03-05-2009, 03:36 PM #17
I'm really not that confident with commands etc so I'll wait for the cydia release I think!
03-05-2009, 11:08 PM #18
Working awesome so far!

I am testing it and it seems that the one week and two weeks options are different from the previous version. Now, they display calendar item for periods from monday to sunday, rather than the next seven days or 14 days. So, for instance, with the one week option, I get only th items for tomorrow (Friday; I got nothing on Saturday and Sunday). It didn't use to be that way. Previously, with one week I would get the items for the next seven days. Is this a bug or intentional? I definitely preferred it the way it used to be. Thanks
EDIT: BTW, it's not really a big deal, if I set it up at two weeks, and with usual number of ten items, it's basically identical to the way it used to be
