Anyone use Cydgets??
I have just recently started taking advantage of my google calendar synced to the iphone native calendar app and I love it. Now I would like to have my calendar entries shown on the lockscreen. I was thinking of using Lock Calendar but I have read that the latest version is now a "cydget".
I was wondering what performance hit this would take on my phone. I am running a 3GS with backgrounder, proswitcher, bitesms, sbsettings and winterboard installed. Will installing LockCalendar and the required "cydget" apps affect the battery/performance of my phone?
Thanks for the help...

thanks for the quick reply.
I thought about LockInfo but all I really want is the Calendar which is why I am considering the new LockCalendar which is now a cydget. All (most) of the reviews I have been reading on Rock have been negative regarding the Cydget app. People say that the lockscreen become really slow to respond and actually unlock. Has anyone experienced this before??

Intelliscreen is a good little app if you want basic calendar info displayed on the lockscreen (along with texts, emails, weather, news etc, which can all be customised). Intelliscreen can be trialed for free & you can get it via the RockApp in Cydia.

I think they work fine - although they can sometimes lag for a second or two on initial startup. One nice feature is you can run as many cydgets as you'd like - switching between them using the home button. You can also run your normal lockscreen (called AwayView) - with whatever theme or widgets you normally use.
Also, cydgets DO NOT run when the device is turned off or unlocked. They don't use battery when not in use, nor do they slow the device down...
