    Alright, here goes:

    Convergance: A bold new direction-concept_a.png
    This is the very first concept I came up with - the lockscreen was to be translucent, showing the homescreen/apps underneath. I got quite far building this concept, but there were really bad UI issues when apps where open underneath, so I had to switch back to a wallpaper. I kept the blurring and unblurring effect I developed at this stage though, works pretty well, and looks great! The notifications have also changed their design; I'm waiting till release to reveal them

    This is how I first planned out the toggle page. I'm really not that impressed with the toggle design here, but the airplane icon made it through to the current version. Since the original plan was to have small icons on the bottom of each page, there's one present here. Kinda thought they looked a bit out of place so they were removed. I've still kept the brightness slider in, but re-designed it to fit around the new default theme.

    Convergance: A bold new direction-concept_lockscreen_music.png
    So, the music UI! I haven't actually built this bit yet, so I'm focusing on it this week, but the general idea is to merge the iOS 6 and 7 implementations together. I'm kinda thinking of moving away completely from this, and going sorta close to 7's design, maybe with a hint of Jelly Bean too.

    There's a couple more concepts, but they're for features I'm keeping under wraps for release

    Both Google Now and iOS 7 were huge influences on the current design of Convergance, but I didn't quite want to stray into the territory of flat, flat, flat. The angular design I used for the concepts is going to be available as an alternative theme named Conceptual to use from within Convergance, thought it was too much work to never get seen or used!

    Unfortunately it won't be at release, but I am planning to add an option if it's installed to switch between Convergance's notifications and Lockinfo's. Hopefully it won't be too hard!

    I have some good news, and some bad news.

    The bad news is that the release date is going to be pushed back a little further.

    But the good news is that about next week I should hopefully have a public beta for y'all to play about with!

    Got the music controls up and running now, thought I'd show y'all them! Rather than go for one design, I built three, allowing you to choose how to display your music. The controls themselves are accessible by double-tapping the Home button as usual.

    #1 - Fullscreen

    Convergance: A bold new direction-img_0869.png

    #2 - Medium

    Convergance: A bold new direction-img_0868.png

    Side note: the song in this screenie is a fair amount of inspiration for Convergance - both for it's name and for motivation.

    #3 - Mini

    Convergance: A bold new direction-img_0870.png

    The mini version is only viewable after accessing the controls - it isn't displayed when the time is visible.

    i hope it will be soon, wait wait and waiting for....
    Not too long now there's a few major-ish bugs I'm gonna to need to address before the public beta. So, it may be a little delayed - next week is a rough estimate.


    UPDATE (28/11/13):
    I've fixed a few bugs, but am still a way off a public beta. Unfortunately, I don't think it'll be available until at least next week, apologies for this - want to ensure all features actually work, rather than causing crashes etc. I'm thinking though of throwing up a small indicator on the Convergance website to show what's left to do, any thoughts?
