With the exception of the clock at the top, it really doesn't look much different than Lock Screen Info. Most of the other stuff you can theme (icons, section headers) and the info from the other apps can be pulled from plugins.

Is apple completely stupid?

HELLO. Smartphone. People would like a summary of all the crap they having going on in their phones and don't want to click each individual app to read stuff. Why on earth haven't they released a lockscreen that has this stuff already is beyond me.

iPhone's lock screen = epic fail compared to ANY smartphone.

Thank God for jailbreak and lockinfo, if/when they ever make jailbreaking not possible they sure as hell better have multitasking and a lockscreen implemented or I'm off to android.

sorry for the rant ;)

This is different from LockInfo.....how exactly? Everything that's on that screen could be added to LockInfo with a plugin or is being worked on by Ashman already.

Is it just because it's being done by Saurik, it uses Cydget and it looks a little different? Meh. :rolleyes:

Right now I like the way that LockInfo and Cydget are working together, and I went ahead and paid for LockInfo before the trial ran out. However, those pictures show a very classy lock screen that I would love to have. Can't wait to see how this evolves...

Here's hoping. This looks fantastic. I think I could do without the dock buttons at the bottom though.

Looks awesome but that doesn't look like the Lockscreen to me. Where the "Slide to Unlock"?

I thought this was on the lockscreen.
Sorry, my bad. I had read a previous post where they talked about it being on the first springboard page. I don't like the dock icons at the bottom as they use up a lot of valuable screen space that could be the regular info.
Are you sure it's on the lockscreen ? Sure looks like a home screen icon to me (circled in red) Click for larger size picture.

Ok to get this straight, sceen shots show this on the homescreen but it will defo be available for the lockscreen two, just as lock info does, allows you to run it on both..

Exactly. Looking forward to the release, however I need to get some mileage out of my purchased version of LockInfo first. Take your time guys and get a full release of this out...no piecemealing please!
