It says it's an april fools joke but it is really available and operational. Looks great. The only problem I've run into is it won't show my mail.

Element, designed by @gteehan, implemented by @limneos, built as a Cydget entirely in WebCycript, is now up! ;P http://tinyurl.com/element41

Really liking it. Picked up my location for the weather without any input from me.

Couple of issues:
next to the icon for email and facebook it says "Email" and "Facebook" where as there is no text next to the other icons.
Emails dont show up.
Next to each of the missed calls it says "7+ Null".

Apart from that, Great.

I can't believe Saurik released this half-baked version of Element with his blessing. It is not even close to ready for release, more like an alpha version, perhaps early beta.

I still think this is a joke. I deleted it almost immediately as it will have a hard time catching up with LockInfo at this point.

well, i found it and installed... still not that refined like lockcalendar.

it is not showing any emails, i have multiple email accounts configured, where is the setting to use a particular email account as a default one?

ehh lockinfo is better and well worth the $4.99 you pay for it, especially at this point! lockinfo is full of a ton of features that are probably not going to show up in these other lockscreen apps for a few iterations!

Why does it say "a lame attempt at an April Fools Day joke" in Cydia's description?

Anyway, I couldn't care less for a half-baked cydget since I have this.

There is an update in cydia that fixes the email issue. I updated and it's working fine now. This lockscreen rocks.

ah i see that now. problem is, it only shows when i disable my weathericon theme, even though this is higher in the winterboard list. hmmm.
I have weathericon enabled. I was seeing what you see as well, but now it displays the High Gloss icon set with weathericon enabled. I may have turned off, high gloss and then enabled it as the very last step to get it to be the main icon set. Not exactly how I did it, but it works now :)

I'm playing with Element even though LockInfo still has much more functionality. I was expecting to see a pull-down monthly calendar and a pull-down extended forecast. Is anyone seeing that functionality?

i was going to give this a try but it seems to crash my phone. i installed it, turned off lockinfo, then enabled elements. when i did a respring it looked great for about 5 seconds then froze and waited about 3 minutes before doing another respring.... and repeat. the only way to stop the loop was wait for the respring, then quickly put my lock code in before it crashed again. hopefully they'll get the issues ironed out.

i had the exact same issue after 3-4 days use and had to disable it as well. hope they fix the issue soon.
