    Multiple — 16 is limit for now. But we can make it changable.

    Yep. But you can turn them off in 'Settings -> QuickBoard -> Enabled quick apps' and use only widgets.

    Tap & Hold on any widget — all widgets go into jittering mode and 'slide to unlock' panel be changed on widgets chooser.

    Widgets chooser have pages and you can scroll it.

    thanks

    but i found this conflicts with lockinfo which i love. the lockscreen would freeze up and i couldn't use either or get into my phone without hard rebooting and then it allowed me to (quickly) put in my pin to uninstall it. i know it's beta but needs a bit more work :(

    Thanks, this looks very good. I have turned off lockcalender and am intending to try this for a while at least.

    A few questions...

    How much would it be for a license for all three of these quick apps which are installed by default?

    Any other plans for the future besides wiki and twitter?

    Also, is there a way to change the person that the quicksms widget auto-sends to? Can you not get a short list (favourites?) like you do within the dial widget?

    Overall though, this looks very good and may tempt me to part with cash for those licenses.

    QuickWidgets help Events — email, events

    QuickWidgets help Events — email, events
    I love QuickWidgets I only have one question on setup.
    I need some help I am not able to get my e-mails or miss calls or any of those kind of notifications.
    The only thing showing up on the calendar widget is the information in my calendar.
    I was wondering is there a certain way to show all of your information or am I doing something wrong.

    Wow! So far this is my favorite lockscreen enhancement app yet. I have high hopes for Cydgets as well but there just not enough Cydgets available that are valuable to me.

    I have a couple of questions:

    How do I change the time zones displayed on top of the lockscreen?

    I noticed in the screen shots above the large time display is not visible. How do you have it not display on the lockscreen?

    How do I change the weather widget location? I also cant seem to get it to update either.

    I really looking forward to more widgets.

    This is very nice, thanks! I've been wanting my calendar, weather and notes on the lockscreen. It's really easy to set up and configure.

    Pavelegorkin, have you noticed any issues with battery life during testing?

    Yep, now we are working on bugs and compatibility.

    You can buy it all in one package for $14.95, or by one:
    QuickSMS: 13.95
    QCalendar: 4.95
    QBirthday: 4.95

    You can see details on our site

    But you no need to buy it if you need only widgets.

    Twitter will be in nearest plans, as soon as we improve compatibility.
    Wiki too.

    Tap & hold on any widget before it start to 'jiggle' — then press on red button (ye, we have lack of designers right now :( )on top right corner of QuickReply widgets.

    We want to rework events widgets and QuickReply a little later.

    Yep, its work sometimes this way yet :( will be fixed.
    Are you have lates version?

    To change time zone you need to go into QuickBoard —> settings —> QuickLockScreen and change 'alternative timezone', by default it set on London.

    Its don`t visible because is another space. Try to slide left on your lockscreen and you`ll see that you have more lockscreens now ;)
    They does not have clock.

    We thinking on make 'big default clock' enabler/disabler — in QuickBoard settings of cource.

    To change widgets location you need to tap & hold on any widget — for example on weather. It start to jiggle and you can move your widgets and add new (via panel on bottom (it have multiple pages too)).

    You also see red button on top right corner of every widget, its setting.
    You can enable auto-refresh there. Double tap on weather to refresh it manualy.

    New widgets will be soon.

    Nope, we don`t see any battery issues, but one of our users tell that eat battery, he does not give list of his apps yet, so we don`t know where issue is,

    if anyone see battery draining, try to install latest version, if this does not help please contact us with this bug.

    Bug in Call To widget?

    I noticed that all of the numbers listed in this widget is labeled as "Work" which is not correct. Is this a bug?

    Minor request for time display

    Would it be possible to add "am" and "pm" labels?

    I was referring to the large clocks on the first lockscreen page.

    More importantly, can you add the ability to view and delete entire emails from the Lockscreen? Intelliscreen and E-lert have this feature which I find to be very useful. Or at the very minimum I should be able to go directly to the email in the native mail app from the lockscreen. As it is double tapping on the email only takes me to the accounts page of the mail app.

    Let me clarify: it seems the drop down list in this widget shows the phone favorites. All these phone numbers show the label "work". But if I do a search for the same contact the correct phone number label is displayed. Perhaps this is a problem with how favorites are treated or saved or classified on the iPhone?

    The whole lockscreen phenomenon is very intriguing. We started with a screen with a clock and an unlock slider. Now we can not only see important/fun information from our apps on our lockscreen, but we can run processes from it.

    I'm of the mind that the lockscreen is for viewing data of relative importance quickly without having to launch an application. I see a line of demarcation between lockscreen and the apps on the springboard, in that I'm not sure I want someone to just pick up my phone and call someone, or read an email, or see my shopping list. Those things should be behind the "lockable wall" so to speak.

    None of this is lessens the fact that this is another wonderful implementation of lockscreen technology. And of course all of this is just my take on it. Others will tell me I'm full of poop. :D
