    Amazing program - already giving me a few bugs but otherwise works great!

    Basically it puts your last few mail messages on your "lock" screen, SMS, Weather etc.. and you can even check your mail or refresh weather options and news via the lock screen without unlocking the phone all together.

    I must be missing something, but I installed via Cydia and Bossprefs shows that there should be a program, but it is not showing up on my homescreen. What am I missing? Cydia mentioned that I had to install a demo, but how the heck does that happen when you cannot even open up the app? Thanks.

    This is the one app I would consider jailbreaking for.

    This is the only reason I'd jailbreak my phone.
    I'm very eager to hear how it's working for people.

    rebooted three times and still no go, reinstalled no go, and then finally after uninstall and reinstall boom, got it. Weird.

    I am hesitant to install this because of how much it would drain my battery. I keep push off at all times. Constant updating of these apps must drain like crazy. Does anyone know if 5 hours of usage and 15 hours of standby on a full charge is decent or do I have a problem with my battery?

    i dunno

    I installed it last night and got my phone fully charged when I got out of the house this morning. The battery is more than halfway full with all this running. I'll let you know at the end of the day... oh and I've been surfing and using the ipod.

    This program looks great, but it's only a 10-day trial... that sucks!

    After a day of using it, i'm going to have to agree it's a lot buggier than I had thought initially.. the mail portion will tell me I have mail, but it no longer displays the e-mails... I'll give them a few more updates to fix the issues before thinking about trying it again.

    Fantastic idea, has tons of potential.. can't wait for future updates.

    Yes, really buggy.

    I set it up to do an email, calendar, and SMS. Only Email shows. And that email is an old one from yesterday.

    Anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong with setup to where calendar & SMS don't show as well as only old email?

    I really wanted to this to work for me but unfortunately it was too buggy. I only wanted calendar and email information...I find all the other stuff to be too much.

    Unfortunately, the thing "locked up" on me twice and I had to do a hard restart. I will say the developers did I nice job of "alerting me to an issue" by providing a dialogue that "suggest" disabling Intelliscreen after one of the hard restarts.

    *Sigh* Hopefully they get this fixed...or a good alternative comes along.

    I completely agree. I could not figure out how to disable to rest of the info.

    Also, the weather app inside did not find Toronto, Ontario, Canada and I attempted to find the 4 character code on the site, but was no where to be found.

    This app is a great idea, but needs to be worked on!

    Yeah, this app has now completely locked up my phone twice. I don't know why I came back for more after having to completely restore and start over the first time, but here I go again. Going to try to SSH in and delete it when I get home, but otherwise, this damn app is going to cause me a complete restore yet again. Done with this one.

    This program is the reason I Jailbroke my phone. love having the calendar and weather on the lock screen. No crashing here at all. you can find it for "free" if you know where to look. DONT ASK HERE!!!!

    Whew....deleting it via SSH did the trick, thank goodness. Ironically, I still got a message (only once I deleted it and unfroze my phone!) saying that it sensed my phone had been unresponsive and asking whether I wanted to disable Intelliscreen. You betcha! Grrr....
