Go into Lockinfo-go to lock screen-scroll all the way to bottom-click dimmer tab- And there you will find your timer setting. There is a setting for never. Now adjust to what you want.
It should time out eventually. There are a lot of adjustments in that app and you just have to go back and keep exploring it. Took me about 20 minutes to set up Lockinfo and the the Plugins I got for it to be where I wanted it.

Thanks guys!.. i've actually resolved the issue earlier.. just reinstalled the lockinfo and the dim timer settings came back.. it disappeared before, so the lock screen stayed on. Even after manual off it will come back and stay on after a pop-up event (so my battery actually ran out overnite) coz i never dismissed the pop-ups.

Now that LockInfo is capable of so many cool things, and is so easy to configure, I really don't understand how anyone could think Intelliscreen is a preferable choice. Has Intelliscreen been updated at all lately? Going by screenshots and the app description it looks pretty much the same as it did when I tested it a year ago.
In contrast it's been awesome watch LockInfo mature at such a rapid rate over the last 12 months. It's now hands down the most useful and configurable jailbroken app out there. My phone would feel empty and crippled without it!
I would however love to see some aesthetic improvements for Retina displays. The little icons have been updated, but it still doesn't look like it's taking advantage of all those extra pixels. However I think from memory David has plans for a redesign in 2011?

I know this is sort of an older thread, but I have both and I can honestly say that I prefer lock info. Don't get me wrong, intelliscreen is great, but three minor differences pushed lock info ahead for me:
1. The ability to call a missed number back from the lock screen with lock info.
2. The ability to use the entire lockscreen and not just the bit between the time and slider.
3. The ability to choose when I do/don't want a section collapsed. I didn't care much for handing my phone over to someone with intelliscreen. It never wanted to swipe away for me, but with lock info the cells respond better. Also too, sometimes I don't want to clear out a missed call, but I still want to see other items on my lockscreen. With intelliscreen, I had to clear missed calls to see the rest.
I do have to admit that the weather popup was nice on intelliscreen (it brings you to weather underground's site) and the RSS feed was a bit more interactive, but those two don't really matter to me.
Forgot to add, the ability to list push notifications on lock info is HUGE!! I had a hard time with notifications working right on intelliscreen...
I could go on about other minor bits, but I don't want to bore anyone. Anyways, LI FTW.

Lockinfo updated to 3.0... Lots of issues on phone.. With the plugin of course

Well, i tried for the longest to work with intelliscreen. I like it's interface, and stability. But for the life of me, i can never get the weather to show for anything. It always just say no data available no matter what i put in, zip, city/state, airport code, etc and i can't figure out what i'm missing here. It's useless for me without the weather on the lockscreen. So until i can find a solution to the weather issue with IS, i'll have to settle for lockinfo for now.

The weather works fine in my intelliscreen. I have multiple locations listed.

the problem for me is that is a weather forecast + - for a week, I would like it shows the actual weather...

Hadn't been that impressed with LockInfo up until the 3.0 update came out. Definitely worth the money.

I originally gave the nod to lockinfo, but with intelliscreenX here, my vote goes to ISX now. The pages for things like Facebook, twitter, mail and rss is great. Also, built in messages+ is awesome! I haven't played with LI with the iOS5 theme much, but it does seem nice too.

Interesting that this thread/poll was resurrected, as I was formerly a LockInfo guy but since trying out ISX I don't think I'll go back. ISX is a game-changer, and it has played very nicely with everything else I've added on my 4S.

IntelliscreenX on the other hand is like a streamlined version that only displays what you want to see WHEN you want to see it, by refreshing sources and information as you you scroll, rather than attempting to display everything at the same time. Aspects like Google Reader integration also make setting up your own RSS feeds a breeze, and the built in Facebook and Twitter pages work beautifully. It also has a much more native feel to it than LockInfo, as the way its integrated directly into the existing notification centre is very clever.
Probably the only thing I like better about LockInfo is that it handles the Lockscreen better. For example there is no way to remove default push messages displaying on the lockscreen with ISX. Even though they are captured by the NC, the default "slide to open ...." messages still remain, so I use "Ipsum" to quickly clear them.
There are definitely pros and cons to each app, but for people looking for the most simple and elegant solution ISX is the way to go. If on the other hand you're willing to sacrifice some memory, speed and aesthetics for the sake of extreme customisation and plugin options (and better Lockscreen message handling) then LockInfo is probably still the way to go.

I tested both, but i have LI now from beginning on my iPhone first Generation! My favourite is and will still LockInfo! Works fantastic and the the Plugins are all top! Now i tested a little for my best outfit from LI and the resultated is, with the CydiaAddon BULLETIN its superduper!!!!!!! Now i can use LI on Lockscreen like on Homescreen or in Apps with the Notificationcenter! But see by yourself!

(Intelli screen x) is best .
02-19-2012, 05:28 AM #56
IntelliscreenX is much simpler and better because it comes with messages+ and lots of widgets
