Prefer Lockinfo. Especially since the 3.X version updates.
I've had both. Had intelliscreen first and then went to Lockinfo. Intelliscreen was kind of junky, screen always seems cluttered, couldn't get things to line up right. Went to Lockinfo probably over a year ago and never looked back.
thanks for the input swoosh....I just downloaded the new lockinfo and will give it a couple of weeks to grow on me....all i really used the intelliscreen for was my mail....but it seems that lockinfo has a lot more depth to it.....any idea on how to get your facebook notifications to show up on lockinfo under notifications? do i need boxcar or is that app old news?

I just began using lockinfo this past week.
Its awesome, i use Whatsapp a lot and it shows up on notifications, i am assuming Facebook would too. (I don't use Facebook myself)
I like how you have the option of having a picture of the app show up on the lockscreen.

It prob isn't really important to some people, but i like it, at a quick glance you can tell if its an application you want to deal with or ignore it.

Oh. Forgot to tell you to make sure you install the lock weather plugin for lockinfo also. Works great if you put it at the top in the order and turn off the standard clock.
Also if you use twitter. The twitter pluggin is also nice
I have all plugins set to collapse by default except for the calendar one. And have all the others set to show only when something new comes in (email, text, notifications). It gives it a nice clean look.

I used Intelliscreen for a long while last year -- I think it is much "prettier" than LockInfo -- but after a string of updates that kept causing problems I finally jumped to LockInfo and it is much more customizable and much more informative. And with the most current LockInfo releases and adding the HTC clock plugin -- LockInfo has even become quite "pretty." Not the most important feature, but combined with great functionality it is a must-have app now IMO.

Never used Intelliscreen so I cannot say much about it. But I'm usin Lockinfo for nearly a year now, and I'm missing it the most of all jb tweaks when I'm not on a jb iPhone.
I used the HTC plugin till last week, but now I'm using TypographyTime. If you like Typophone, you like TypographyTime!

I've been using Intelliscreen for a few weeks, and I like that it lets me check, delete or mark unread all of my emails/SMS messages. I can even launch the appropriate app from the lock screen without swiping. However, it is a bit messy and I'd like to be able to customize it a bit.
I've seen the entire section of mods/plug ins for Lockinfo, but I'm wondering if there exist any similar options for Intelliscreen, or should I pop on getting Lockinfo for the customizations and flexibility? Thanks for info/input.

Lockinfo and ToneFx are the reasons i'm jailbroken. With Lockinfo, i love having all that info right at hand. It does make life easier. As for ToneFx, with a house full of iPhones(wife & five kids), i do love knowing when an e-mail comes in that's meant for me!

That's what I was thinking. After paying at least $200 for a phone probably $50 on accessories and .99 on angry birds (seems like everyone has that). You'd think spending $7.99 on arguably the best jailbreak app there is would be easy. $10 for a beer at a ballgame, that's overpriced. Lockinfo not so much....

I've been using Intelliscreen for the past couple of years and only installed LockInfo yesterday after reading your post and I like it better already. It seems less bugy and resource extensive. With IS, I had some display corruption for a while (until I upgraded the OS to 4.2.1 and the latest version of IS) and it seemed to slow my phone down a lot (3G S). So far, I'm not seeing any such side effects with LockInfo.
