    Kind of want to try a LockBuilder Evo, has anyone tried it? I'm curious what your thoughts are? It looks really cool.

    Not really happy with it. Weird things with notifications. Takes several tries to access the menu, keeps unlocking my phone instead. Several crashes into safemode. Make to groovy lock, wallet is $5.00 lighter:(.

    You are not in the same boat. I'm pretending to think of it as me dropping a 5$ bill down the sewer on accident.

    That app is a joke.

    I'm using it. It's the best lockscreen I've ever seen.

    I personally had a very similar experience and don't like it very much.

    Is this LockBuilder or LockBuilderEvo you're talking about. I had issues with LockBuilder but the Evo version runs perfectly for me. And it's much easier to use than the original.

    What weird things with notifications do you mean? Should only take one "short" swipe left to access the menu. If you long swipe left, right, up, down, it would unlock. This was removed a couple versions ago, because some didn't like it. Now you can only long swipe right to unlock. Making to groovylock is not an option.

    If you haven't noticed LockBuilder Evo. Has many features that no other lockscreen has. Some are built in dim delay control, ability to remove status bar, notification text, disk space, battery percent and a bunch of other options that only work when using apple obj-c codes. Cydget allows this. GroovyLock doesn't even support touch interaction. So really no other option than cydget.

    The notification issue you mentioned may be Cydgets way of handling notifications. Nothing I can do about that, but as in the description mentions, you can download clearlocknotifications and it clears up this issue. Would like to know about your other issues though, can't be fixed if no one reports them. The email address at the top of the description is the best way to report errors.

    ----------

    A joke as in how? It really isn't an app either. Just a cydget.

    I get what you're saying, I totally agree that what it can do is amazing and groundbreaking. I've seen lots of things you've done that are just amazing. It's just not for me I guess, and I think that maybe it is Cydget that is the main reason. I was getting notifications not showing up, or the same with trying to launch the menu, my iPhone would unlock to the springboard instead of opening the notification.

    Again, it is amazing, what you've done is really cool, just one of the reasons I love my iPhone is the simplicity and ease of use. Simple, like groovy lock is for me:D. But don't worry too much, Alhize is on my LS more than any other theme:D.

    A few dislike some of cydgets features, it's understandable. I dislike some too, but the features I can use are phenomenal. As I mentioned a few issues have been fixed in further updates of LBEvo. I had a long extensive beta, but still some issues were unknown. Should give the new version another chance, but I understand if its not meant for everyone.

    I'll certainly try it again, I'll wait until I'm not so busy and give it a go. I'm not creative enough myself, so I don't use the custom options, but some of the themes available are really cool. Thanks

    Not everyone is creative enough to come up with a lockscreen. Nothing wrong with that. The few that are, and send in themes I am very thankful for.

    Example, my setup tonight. LBEvoTheme Midnight by Jeeepers7 and Vision by FrenchiTouch, with a little help from LBEvo Springboard.

    Hey, slightly off topic, but I paid for the evo beta on the website, but now that it's been officially released, I can't download any of the new themes because it says I need the official version. How could we go about getting that fixed?

    Seems on topic for me. Send proof of purchase, and cydia number to LockBuilder@gmail.com this is all explained in the released versions description.
    http://cydia.saurik.com/package/com.macciti.lockbuilderevocydget/
    You should have also received an email before it released, requesting your cydia number.

    Anyone has a real guide on how to config this properly? Everytime I try to setup the weather iwidget it keeps on saying that it has to be config in the .plist itself, so I have to mod the file using my desktop then push it to the phone? hmm...
