    Are there any widgets for springboard that function like Quick Widgets does for the lockscreen?

    Or are there any live widgets like a google search bar, or live facebook feed, or live twitter feed, or live weather that function great on the iphone 4? Or maybe some cydia app that allows you to add contacts to the springboard like on Android? It's nothing I really need but I would like to play around with them if it is something thats available. Thanks in advance.

    There are apps that bring you to calling or texting a specific person and add an icon but i dont remember what they are called :/
    Things like live weather can be done with html

    i just got click2call and that is a great app! thanks for that.

    Now what about a google widget or something just like the Quick Widgets but for use on a home screen and not lock screen? Basically an interactive app on the home screen itself. I know people like this sort of stuff on android so i'm surprised there isn't more development for widgets on jailbroken iOS devices.

    Its much more difficult with the way apple has done it. pretty much impossible.
    The best you'll get is a html calender/weather on the springboard.

    If you want things like twitter, calender, mail, texts, ect on the first page of your springboard try out lockinfo and enable it on the homepage and move all your icons over a page

    The spotlight bar acts as a google search.

    Liveweather is your weather widget.
