    Wizdaz, one of the iPhone DevTeam members has announced a wonderful new application for the iPhone OS devices called SmartScreen, to be released under his startup MediaPhone.

    SmartScreen basically is Dashboard for the iPhone. Just like Dashboard on your Mac, you can have widgets like weather, stocks etc on the iPhone lockscreen! You can also reposition the widgets the same way you move the apps, just tap and hold to move - and you can have upto 8 screens of different widgets. Its quite a neat approach for having widgets on iPhone OS - relatively better than what we've seen in the past.

    This app will be compatible with all iPhone OS 3.x devices as long as you have them jailbroken. Of course like all good Cydia apps, it violates Apple's SDK agreement and cannot be sold on the AppStore. The cool news is that developers who are willing to create various widgets will be completely able to - an SDK for SmartScreen has been scheduled for release in November of this year. If you're interested to port yours, e-mail the developer @ [email protected] or [email protected]

    No information on pricing has been given, but I do believe it is going to be minimal as the app is coming from a DevTeam member. Whatever it might cost (hopefully not more than the device xD), for me, it will be just another reason to jailbreak!

    In the screen shot, what's the name of the app to get the grey bar to go away behind the time, or is that part of SmartScreen?

    That clock is a widget I believe (maybe the program removes all including clock except the slider and it's hud from lockscreen) as it is movable

    It very well may be. Intelliscreen hasnt done anything new or interesting lately.

    They really should. I dont see why not. Allow apps to use the lockscreen.

    Agreed. Especially when software is only a few dollars. Why not buy it.
