LockInfo 8: The very popular lock screen tweak is now available for iOS 8

LockInfo8, like the previous seven releases in the series, is a Lock screen tweak that provides you with a plethora of pertinent information about your day, your apps, the weather, and more. It’s the latest in a long-running series that has been installed on millions of iPhones, and is one of the most recognizable and popular jailbreak tweaks in the history of the community.

LockInfo 8 will keep you from having to unlock your device for pertinent information. If that sounds intriguing, then let’s take a walkthrough of this lock screen tweak.

LockInfo always felt like it was trying to do too many things at once, and that’s another reason why I lacked the interest and motivation to provide any sort of post. In this area, LockInfo seems to have turned a corner as of late. It’s still an incredibly deep tweak, but the barrier to entry is much more palatable this time around.

At its core, LockInfo is a tweak that places your Notification Center in a front and center position on the Lock screen. No longer will you have to swipe down to reveal pertinent information about your digital life, because it’s already there waiting for you.

When you first install LockInfo, you’ll be greeted with an initial setup screen that will help walk you through the tweak’s most common features. With this in mind, let’s discuss some of these features.

If enabled, you’ll also see some notification icons in the status bar that show up when you have notifications from a particular app.
Going into the settings, you’ll be able to customize the information on the lock screen. So if you don’t want to show the Today View or the Notifications View, then you can toggle those off. You also can change the way you receive notifications, by choosing the “Notify Only” which will remove the notifications after the screen dims from receiving the notification. The ability to disable them altogether is available as well. You can customize your weather settings, widgets, as well as some options for your Notification Center itself.
You can download and try LockInfo 8 for free for 14 days. After that, if you’re in love, you can purchase it for $4.99. It’s not something I, myself will be purchasing, just because it’s information overload for me. I like a nice clean, minimalistic locks screen, but I can see where some people would be into this type of tweak.
