    Looks like I will be getting LI now Bulletin caused me 4 restarts because of springboard crashes in 2 days. One thing I don't tolerate in JB is instability. It's a shame because I really like the way it works.
    not sure that LI will be any better TBH

    I am in the Lockinfo camp. Lockinfo 5 however has suffered greatly in the features and tweakability departments but is much better integrated into iOS than previous generations of Lockinfo. With that said, Lockinfo does exactly what I want still. I want to put my notification center widgets on my homescreen (weather, quick toggles, omnistat) and I want to see my upcoming calendar events on my lockscreen. I have many different peoples calendars in my iOS calendar app and normally iOS shoves every event from each of these calendars in my notificaiton center when I really only want to view MY events there. Lockinfo allows me to view only the ones i want (ISX does this as well i believe).

    What many people like about ISX is the twitter/facebook/rss/mail tabs as well as the ISX ticker. First let me say that Lockinfo has a widget for your twitter feed and rss feeds as well as the ability to read and reply to email without ever leaving the lockscreen. So aside from facebook ISX can't boast that much more additional utility than Lockinfo. The visual approaches to doing these actions are a little different but you can pretty much do the same things. The ISX ticker is a very nice looking feature with little utility as far as i'm concerned. The ticker tries to show you 1 rss article/tweet/fb post and slowly cycle through your new ones. This is slow and you're much better off going to the appropriate iSX tab or a respective app to quickly see everything new thats been happening. I think that ISX has implemented a good deal of features but not ones I really need. If i want to check my twitter I'd rather do it in a great looking, fully functional app like tweetbot.

    So i would say that Lockinfo and ISX have nearly the exact same features with two slightly differing visual styles. In my experience ISX is harsher on the battery and will cost you more in initial purchase costs and upgrade fees. Let me also say that though the newest version of Lockinfo doesn't have nearly as many features as older versions I hope that the dev will start to push these things back into future releases. The missing features are what made Lockinfo hands-down a better decision over ISX.

    For hard core productivity, Lockinfo will always win, but for the average user they're pretty interchangeable I think. Right now I'm really enjoying the stability of ISX—the newer LI has been a little buggy—as well as the styling, which simply ties in with Apple's UI much, much better. (I always had to theme Lockinfo in the past.) One feature of ISX that is overlooked in the post above is that it comes with a built in SMS replacement app (Messages+) that allows you to compose and reply to emails from the lock screen or within any app.

    Tried LI that sucked because it ruined my nice clean Lock screen and I couldn't stand it. So I found a solution I set all of my Notification not yo show on the Lock screen. Now that I've gotten used to dismissing them from the Lock screen I can't go back to looking at them sitting there. Hopefully in a month or so if Bulletin gets updated I'll try it again.

    I have used both and at a point I was using LI for my lock screen and ISX only for notification center. To be quite honest, I like ISX for one simple reason: you can put it away when you don't need it. LI will always cover whatever is behind the lock screen like navigation etc. also top shelf for ISX is a great feature that I use all the time. You also get messages+ with ISX soo you have to take that onto account as well.

    shoot me a screenshot of ISX I want something in particular and after trying LI and Bulleyin I'm almost ready to throw in the towel.

    Here's a few: lock screen (can be more opaque), unlocked, with top shelf pulled down, twitter panel (similar look for mail, Facebook, rss panels):

    Not shown here are all the action menus—tap an item for options to open, delete, etc. Here is Messages+ which is a full screen messaging interface invoked by an Activator action or by the icon at the bottom right of the Notification Center:

    Thanks, on the lock screen when the shutter is up does anything show? and are you able to dismiss notifications from the lock screen? This maybe my next try.

    Nope, the lock screen stays clear, which was my big issue with lockinfo5. It will stay visible, though, if it is showing when the device is unlocked. (That is, it will still be down when you return to the lock screen—it remembers whether it was up or down.) Yes you can delete notifications and mail too, and have the option to clear the app icon badge at the same time.

    can you still change lock info to the "info shade" so that its a replacement for the notification center?

    Massie, do you still have to use Popup Blocker to block native notification on the LS?

    Popup blocker isn't updated but I don't think you need it since you can turn off view in lockscreen now in settings. Thought of you though because there's a bug in winterboard right now; when a notification comes in, the screen lights but the notification slider is hidden by the lockscreen if you're using any kind of HTML theme. (Statusbar icons and bitesms still work but native sliders are hidden "below" the theme.) Isn't that the behavior you always wanted?

    I believe so. so if you turn off View in Lock Screen do you get the double text alert when unlocking the device?

    Well it looks like dismissing Notifications is not going to happen for me. My iPhone has locked up three times already so grrrr I'm still giving ISX another day or two.

    So in the latest beta, David Ashman added back some of the LI4 features, including the hybrid (he calls it consolidated) lockscreen. It looks just like it used to. I am so happy.

    Lockinfo for lock screen is a must IMHO. Top 3 app for why I jailbreak (bitesms & sbsettings).

    I never have issue with app. Gives me all I want for into on lock screen. Great customization.

    Until iOS 6 I also used InteliscreenX for notification center replacement but I don't feel it's worth installing anymore so I deleted it.

    Really odd, none of that happens for me. Must be a conflict somewhere?
