Why Lockinfo is overpriced
Lockinfo doesn't give you much more than LockCalendar because once you have viewable calendar entries on your lockscreen, the sms and missed call notifications pop up on your lockscreen anyway. I don't need mail and to-do notifications because I receive too many emails and to-do lists are for people who have very short to-do lists . Now besides missing out on the ability to have a prettier lockscreen, a free LockCalendar saves me $7.99 that I would rather spend on a $4.99 Photoalbums+, $0.99 Gridlock, $0.99 5-row keyboard and $0.99 on Angry Birds.
You're probably the lucky ones who never had to contact Saurik for a refund after a botched paypal payment transaction. But frankly, customer support sucks on Cydia. I've been waiting almost 3 weeks for a $0.99 refund and that makes me wary spending $7.99 on a Cydia app.

i have had 2 mishaps with saurik/paypal in the last 2 years and it has not discouraged me from purchasing anything. yes the support sucks and it took longer than i anticipated but it was resolved
do you honestly believe that because you are having difficulties with your .99 issue that someone is waiting to "take" your 7.99 as soon as possible?? as you might know LI is a one time fee, which includes free updates as well as beta privileges
i can tell you first handed that David Ashman is one if the BEST developers out there and customer service is just the beginning. have you actually tried Lockinfo? there is a trial period i believe

I second that statement about the developer. I have email him probably have a dozen times, mostly when I was testing the beta of 3.x before it was released. And each time within minutes of emailing him I had a personal response.

Yes, you are correct on Lock Calendar being enough for viewing my appointments.
I use Lockinfo for weather, my to do's and I really like the month calendar it gives me to see what day an event may fall on.
The plugins are very handy and customizable.
As for price, I felt it was worth the price as well as others have.
