Lock screen concepts
A guy from the Verge had these ideas and I think with a little refining,Apple could do something similar and FINALLY make the lockscreen useful instead of the 80% waste of space it is now-__-
What do you guys think of the ideas?

I approve of adding more info to the lock screen, but this particular proposal seems too complicated.
It's a lock screen, not an alternate 'top-level' OS.
So...I appreciate what he's trying to do, but this seems like too much.

Huh. Strangely enough, John Gruber seems to like it.
This is the first time in quite awhile I've totally disagreed with him. But count on hearing about this a lot more now that he's highlighted it.

I think the lock screen is fine as it is -- no need to complicate it. Apple stresses simplicity with respect to what they decide to integrate into their products - both on the hardware side and the software side. The lock screen serves two basic purposes:
1.) It serves as a standby to conserve battery life
2.) It serves as a way to prevent you from unintentionally pressing buttons, opening apps, or calling people while the phone is in your pocket.
I think with Jony Ive taking over Human UI/UX, there won't be any complicated changes to the lock screen like the author of the post in the link you provided suggests - Jony, more than anyone, perhaps, understands the importance of simplicity in user interfaces and the role it plays for Apple as a whole.
