Now that jailbreaking is painless again, I’ve started to explore some of the jailbreak specific apps. The nicest surprise I’ve found so far is LockInfo. It has a number of plugins that show appointments, RSS feeds, new mail, and weather data on the iPhone’s lock screen. I find it quite useful; definitely worth $5 and a quick jailbreak. It is mind boggling why Apple hasn’t allowed this functionality in the default OS or via 3rd party apps the App Store.
