    What are your thoughts on these two tweaks? I'm currently using LockInfo with biteSMS but am thinking of using IntelliscreenX with Messages+ on my iPhone 6 with iOS 8.1.2. I like the calendar on my lock screen mainly with weather. Is IntelliscreenX overkill?

    I believe IntelliscreenX has a 3 day trial. You could test it out and see if you like it. I tried it, but decided I didn't want my lock screen quite that busy. I wasn't using all the functionality... I just like how it added the weather. So I decided forecast would probably be enough for me.

    I also like displaying a picture on my LS, and it didn't work out so well with IntelliscreenX. To see it well, I had to have the NC blur on and that darkened the picture too much. Without the NC blur, it was hard to read the text on my lock screen.

    I also just didn't want to pull NC down all the time while not on the lock screen to do things like look through FB and Twitter and send texts. I'd rather just open the application.

    Some people love it though.

    I can't comment on biteSMS or messages+. I've never used them.

    I bought intelliscreenX 8. It drains battery as ****, so I removed it and installed lockinfo 8 beta. Works much much better and no additional battery drain noted.
