Hi, anyone know if there is anything similar to Lockinfo or Intelliscreen on android? One of the things I miss from my jailbroken iPhone.

You don't need it. You're conditioned by iOS and the jailbreak to need these things.

This is why Android has status bar icons. That's your LockInfo or IntelliscreenX. Simply pull down the notification bar and you can see all your notifications.

Sorry, not the same functionality.

First, I would have to press the power button, unlock the phone then swipe down, with lock info all I had to do is press the power button.

Second, I can't reply, mark as read, or delete anything from the pull down menu, only dismiss. With lock info I could do all those things from the lock screen without having to jump into the email app or messaging app.

Third, if I did want to jump into those apps, I just swipe the icon from the lock screen and jump strait to it, your way I have to unlock first, then swipe down the menu, then tap the notification.

Try WidgetLocker (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teslacoilsw.widgetlocker&hl=en).

I have widget locker. It gives me shortcuts, which is great, but doesn't give me that extra functionality with notifications.

I also tried lock screen notifications widget with widget locker, and it's close. It shows me the notification on my lock screen, but I can't take any action on them only view them. I can't even open directly to the app.

Thanks though.

So you are now the person to tell others what they do and do not need?
Maybe you should let others decide what best fits their needs instead of telling them what best fits their needs.

I am an Android convert from a jailbroken iPhone 4S to a Nexus 4. And really, there are some things Android just can't match, and this is one of them.

People say Android is best for customization, and that is true. But in reality, you can't do whatever you want on Android devices. You are still severely limited by what developers have made, obviously. Same thing with iOS and jailbreak tweaks.

Honestly, your best bet is going to be using widgetLocker and finding a cool widget that gets close to this functionality. Maybe look at DashClock, but I know that won't be the same as LockInfo. You probably won't find anything that functions like that, you will just have to keep searching for a close alternative.

I apologize. I didn't mean to come off as trying to tell the OP what he/she needed. I was simply trying to say that Android goes about notifications differently than iOS and people that are used to using iOS (that was me at one time) have expectations that they'll be able to jump right over to Android and it'll be exactly like their iPhone.

OP, depending on what phone you have, you could try something like NiLS. It may give you the functionality you're looking for. It may only work on 4.2 and above, though.

How about iPhone Notifications (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nlucas.iphonenotifications&hl=en)?

Dashclock would be perfect if you didn't have to pull down to see info everytime. Or is that only a touchwiz bug? or something I'm doing wrong?

There are things you can do on a jailbroken iOS device that you just can't on Android even when rooted unfortunately. (please no one ask me what, there are countless numbers of tweaks and new ones coming out practically every week)

Thanks, that is really close. I still can't do stuff like mark as real or delete from the lock screen, but it does give me a preview, allows me to dismiss, and takes me right to the app if I tap the notification.

Not quite what I was looking for, but it did lead me to find notifications pro by the same developer, which has been an app I didn't know I wanted but I'm loving right now. Thanks.

I've just downloaded Lock Screen Notifications...lets see how that is. I've been using NiLS Notifications Lock Screen since but lets see what this one is like.
