The iPhone lacks many things that have come to be taken for granted by many mobile enthusiasts. A functional “Today Screen” that displays at-a-glance information is one of the features that Apple failed to include in their first handset offering. But, that doesn’t mean the prolific iPhone developer community is going to sit idly by and accept Apple’s oversight.
Enter Intelliscreen. With a bit of jailbreak-magic, Intelliscreen puts calendar info, email, SMS text messages, news and weather right on the iPhone’s locked-screen – the “Slide To Unlock” screen, if you will. Intelliscreen displays the most recent data in categorized panes on your iPhone’s locked-screen. Each pane allows you to scroll through your information conveniently on the iPhone’s display, and gives you the option to launch the mail, SMS text message, calendar, etc. applications with a quick swipe through the information-pane.
You’ll need to jailbreak your iPhone to make Intelliscreen work – hit up our iPhone Jailbreak guide to get jiggy with third-party iPhone applications. Then add the “http://www.intelliborn.com/repo/Intelli.plist” application repository to your Installer.app’s “Source” list (here’s how). Find “Intelliscreen” and install it, but be warned, this is beta software.
