Guys, has anyone tried or heard of the new Personal Assistant tweak on Cydia?

I've been gutted by lack of LockInfo and Intelliscreen X. But on the face of the cydia ad this PA tweak looks good.

It works well but keep in mind that it operates as if it is its own app running on the lock screen. Meaning the animations are different. The look isn't exactly stock iOS (like LI and ISX were). Overall nice app tho with lots of functionality. The dev seems to be releasing updates quick too. I turn it off occasionally because notifications are too small for the quick glance. I find myself "hunting for info" when I'm looking at the screen which is annoying considering I generally just peak to see if anything is new. I guess theres adjustment period.

Hi mate, thanks for the reply.

I downloaded it yesterday. It's OK for a new app but think it needed a lot more beta testing before releasing. There are a fair few glitches that need to be addressed. Also there a fair few things that need more thought ie. Messages and emails need a privacy setting so only the name of sender and emails subject can be seen. There are others too.

I've messaged the developer but haven't heard anything back.

Well, what a load of tosh this app is so far. It really doesn't work too well. Too many glitches. Poor layout. But the worst thing is there's no communication from the developer. I've messaged him.several times and not a single response.

I accept there can be glitches in software and have no issue with that. It's the fact that it's a paid for app and lack of communication that annoys me.

Here's to hoping he's just on holiday or summat and he'll fix on his return!!
