LockInfo 8 Supercharges the iPhone Lock Screen

One of the longer running jailbreak tweaks in iPhone history is LockInfo. For several versions of iOS, this tweak has brought an improved level of information and interaction directly to the iPhone lock screen. In fact, LockInfo actually brought Notification Center to iOS 4, before the feature was officially launched with iOS 5 in 2011.

LockInfo 8 now brings all of this functionality and customization to jailbroken iOS 8 devices. Bringing the Notification Center to the lock screen is the tip of the iceberg. Not only does LockInfo make swiping down to reveal what's going on unnecessary, it provides access to additional information with a swipe or tap. For example, swiping left on the lock screen will reveal the weather forecast, right on the iPhone lock screen.

iOS 5 Features Now: Install Notification Center

Apple plans to release the iOS 5 Notification Center this fall, which makes it possible to easily access information from the lock screen or anytime with a simple gesture on the task bar. Fortunately for those who have already jailbroken their iOS devices similar functionality already exists. All it takes is a properly installed and configured tweak called LockInfo.

Although LockInfo costs $7.99, the app is worth the price for the new features it makes possible right now. It also comes with a 14-day free trial so you don't have to commit before trying out the app. If you don't think it's worth the money Cydia can easily remove LockInfo before or after the free trial ends.
