    It's time for a bold new direction.

    Convergance is a complete lockscreen replacement for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

    It brings a new paradigm to unlock your device, an uncluttered way of dealing with lockscreen notifications, accessible settings shortcuts, interactive widgets, and a rejuvenated design.



    Notifications

    Seeing notifications in a long list makes it much more difficult to pick out which apps they are from. To combat this, notifications are now grouped by their associated app, which also makes the lockscreen look much cleaner.



    Widgets

    iOS provides access to information such as the weather, but there shouldn't be a need to unlock your device to view it. Convergance takes this information, and displays it directly on your lockscreen in the form of widgets. A crisp RSS reader, your calendar, a calculator, and the week's weather are all provided as default widgets, with more being available in Cydia.



    HTML

    Support for HTML lockscreens is also built in, allowing you to continue using the custom lockscreens you love, and to tailor Convergance to your tastes. Any lockscreen from GroovyLock, LockHTML or Cydget will run without any modification, with full support for interactivity. A lockscreen dim delay is also provided in the Advanced settings.



    Launchpad

    By default, iOS allows for quick access to the camera from the lockscreen. However, if you wanted to quickly access say your Twitter timeline, this isn't possible. Cue Launchpad - instant secure access to an unlimited number of apps, with just a single tap.



    API

    Convergance provides APIs for both HTML/JS and Objective-C developers to use. For HTML/JS developers, the selection of widgets can be easily extended, as Convergance will allow you to load up your HTML into a widget.

    For Objective-C developers, an API is provided for creating further widgets. Example code for this can be found here: https://github.com/Matchstic/Weather...--Convergance-




    FAQ

    Q. The weather widget just shows "No weather data"?
    A. Please ensure you have Background App Refresh enabled in settings for Weather, and then add a new city to the weather app. Respring, and it should now work.

    Q. The lockscreen freezes when tapping on a notification, leading to a respring!
    A. This is almost certaily being caused by Couria - you need to update to the unofficial version I host on my repo here: repo.incendo.ws

    Q. How can I add further RSS feeds to the RSS widget?
    A. Go to Settings > Convergance > Widgets > RSS > Feeds, and hit the + button. Make sure your feed has the exact URL, such as "http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/world/rss.xml"

    Q. Why does the camera crash when opening it?
    A. This is caused by other tweaks interfering with the lockscreen camera in some way. Usually, the best way to figure out what's causing it is to use iCleaner Pro - go through the MobileSubstrate section, and turn off each dylib in turn (DO NOT turn off MobileSafety), respringing in turn.

    Q. When using AndroidLock XT, it hangs when unlocking and returns back to Convergance.
    A. Please ensure you're using version 3.3.1 or higher of AndroidLockXT

    Beta versions of Convergance can be found at repo.incendo.ws

    Well my grammar was pretty bad so you probably could have literally said it better than me. Guess I should learn to proof read. I'm just so lazy.

    I'll love to run Convergance and melt a custom UI deeper into iOS.

    This has been very mouth-watering until now. You're a great developer Matt 👊👌
    The theme in my posts is 3 4 All, by Sk37cH.

    The numerous versions released, and infinite versatility, beats IconOmatic mods. By quality.
