IntelliScreen 1.00 – 1.03

IntelliScreen With the release of versions 1.0-1.02 of IntelliScreen comes some very cool new features and some slightly disheartening news. Lets start with the cool new features. The new feature that I like the most is the ability to have two IntelliScreen pages. When on your lockscreen, you just tap the little 2 icon and it will flip over to the second page. To go back to the first page, just select to 1 icon. Another very cool new feature is that when you swipe on one of the options, it will have you enter your passcode before it launches the application. IntelliScreen is also no longer free. You get a 10 day trial and then after that, you must purchase a license which range from $4.99 to $49.99 USD (see information below). Here is a break down of some of the other new features.

IntelliScreen 1.01 IntelliScreen 1.01

Main Menu – There is no longer a Display Settings option. However, there are two new options that replace the Display Setting option; View Layout and IntelliSkin.
IntelliScreen 1.01

View Layout – View Layout is like Display Settings only touch screen. When you go into View Layout, you are able to customize IntelliScreen how ever you would like it. You can drag things around, you can add and remove feature by selecting their icons in the lower menu bar and you can have two pages!! Just select the little 2 icon and it will flip over another page. So, whatever didn’t fit on your first page, you can add it to your second page. Once you have everything the way you would like it, select Save in the lower left corner.

IntelliSkin – This is the same feature as in the previous version, it has just been moved to the main menu. There are a few new Skins to choose from; Blend, Blue and Clear. There is also a Add New Skin via HTTP option which allows you to upload your own skin into IntelliScreen.

I am being prompted, when I enter the IntelliScreen application, that there is an update to 1.02 but I am unable to get the update in my Installer even after numerous refreshes. It showed up! However, there is only one new feature with version 1.02 and that is the ability to Double Tap Time/Date to view IntelliScreen 2 instead of clicking on the icon. Which is MUCH easier!! Below is a list of the bug fix for versions 1.0-1.02 as well as a list the licensing options, features and prices. IntelliScreen is avialable through the IntelliBorn source.

Update: Version 1.03 fixes a bug in which YouTube was not working properly.

  1. Is this upgrade mandatory or only from here on out?

  2. Pretty disappointing, an application changing to pay app (and an expensive one!) w/o any word of warning…
    As for me: back to iToday (just installed: also much improved in the last couple of weeks!).

  3. I am sorry but $49.99 is ridiculous. I think even $19.99 is ridiculous

    • I agree!

    • Seriously. I am very confused by these idiots. It has to be under $5 for lots of people to buy it. I won’t touch my bank with this product.

    • I agree. I will NOT be paying for this application in the feature. It should remain free of charge. And $49.99 is outrageous!

    • THIS APP is not in the APP STORE BECAUSE OF THE DAMAGE IT DOES TO YOUR BATTERY THIS APP IS USELESS .. it can really screw up your phone if your not carful . .. destroyed my friends battery made it over heat really bad. and at the same time it damages the life cycle of your BATTERY…. DO NOT BUY DO NOT USE

      -Rp4k and BIGBOSS DEV SUPPORT

  4. the old version is valid until the 10th according to the installer

  5. i think the developer should thank all of the iphone community being guinea pigs for this software.

  6. No way I`m paying 50$ for this app,fore sure someone`s gonna crack this very very soon!

  7. in all fairness and being completely openminded…. $50 is outragous. $20 id pay but $50 honestly makes me feel sick

    • 20 bucks for something that has the potential to screw up your iphone… you sure it’s worth it?

    • well, iv ebeen using it since the initial release and it hasnt screwed it up yet, so id be happy enough with the full package and support for 20

  8. goonerlen says

    this update messed my phone up big time!!! it just hangs at the apple logo at start up :-( does anyone know how to sort this without jailbreaking again?

    any help would be greatful for thanks

  9. iphoneuserFL says

    How disappointing. Why would I pay for a program to use on a jailbroken iphone. That just seems retarded to charge for a program to use on something that your not suppose to do.

  10. I knew this would happen, oh well, I hated it anyway :D
    oh and I’m sure you’ll be able to “aqquire” it other ways……I’m never paying for a jailbreak app, especially so close to the app store.

  11. Again, happy with my principle – using only free software for non-work related purposes. No worries, no complaints about price. The developers demands money – use an alternative.

  12. this sucks.im so not paying more then $3 for this app. Not upgrading for sure.

  13. $50!!! wow, insane

  14. The $50 one is the same as the $20 one except it includes 6 months of support or something.

  15. Don’t forget about the older betas also running out on June 10th.
    The new version is quite a leap forward. The customization screen is big fun, you can even scale all the elements :D

    The blend skin is great, the old bubbly style was silly and didn’t quite fit in.

    Anyway, the price is ridiculous, thats for sure :o

  16. They could have given lifetime support for $50. What do you do after the 6 month support window is no longer available? Pay another $50 bucks for six more months of support. They should have added 1 month of support to the $4.99 package, 6 months of support to the $19.99 package and lifetime support to the $49.99 package. What is up w/ this $**.99 crap. Charge 5, 20, & 50 dollars.

    • LOL. That’s how the market runs. It’s most of the time in 99 cent form. same with gas to a certain scale. It says 3.97$ or w/e but its really 3.98$.

  17. THIS IS A RIPOFF! THIS DISGUSTS ME HOW SOMEONE CAN MAKE THIS WITH THE INTENTION OF SOMETHING TO BE FREE, AND FIND IT TO BE SUCH A SUCCESS THAT YOU DECIDE TO MAKE IT PAID FOR. NOT TO MENTION, $49.99 IS CRAP!!! THAT IS WAY TO EXPENSIVE AND I CAN’T BELEIVE ANYONE WOULD BE DUMB ENOUGH TO PAY $40 BUCKS MORE FOR A FEW CRAPPY FEATURES. THIS IS DISGUSTING. I HOPE 2.0 COMES OUT ON MONDAY AND THERE IS A MASS EXODUS OF PEOPLE WHO WILL USE THE APP STORE AND BE UNABLE TO USE/PAY FOR THIS ABSURD APPLICATION. I KNOW YOUR PROGRAM CAN’T RUN THRU APPLE’S POLICY FOR THE APP STORE AND IT MAKES ME PROUD TO KNOW YOU HAVE ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT TO RUN THIS FREAK SHOW!!! SCREW THE DEVELOPERS OF THIS APP!!!

  18. THIS IS CRAP!!! I HOPE 2.0 COMES OUT monday and THE WHOLE GROUP OF iPhone users start a MASS EXODUS OF DOWNLOADS ON THE NEW FIRMWARE, SO YOU CAN’T CONTINUE TO CHARGE RIDICULOUS PRICES ON SOFTWARE WHIC HWA SNEVER INTENDED TO BE PAUID FOR!!! SHAME ON YOU DEVELOPERS, AND I HOPE YOUR INCOME SUFFERS BECAUSE OF WWDC!!!

  19. I updated this application first thing in the morning, and man, was i disappointed!! I really enjoyed using Intelliscreen, but the prize is just wayyy too steep. sigh…

  20. i liked intelliscreen. i saw the warning that it wouldn’t work past a certain day ont he last install, so i knew this was coming.
    BUT, huge problem, my Intelliscreen stops refreshing everything. it works for about 3 hours, refreshes how i want it to. but then it just won’t refresh and im stuck with all that old info. i really get annoyed with this app. so to charge is another reason i wont use it.

    • i found that same problem , even to the point to were i would stop receving text, phone calls and everything when i was surfing on safari.. this app is teh worst thing to install.. do not use.

  21. i uninstalled once i saw those prices.

  22. This is absolute crap. $19.99 !?!?

    I’d only pay like $4.99 for this app, and that’s pushin’ it. I really only use the news feeds and weather options. Why would I want to read my email in that small window? Plus Texts show up as a pop-up anyway.

    This is really ridiculous.

  23. hey doug or brooke you guys should do a poll on how many people will actually switch to FW 2.0 if you already haven’t (i dont even remember and i am on here all the time)

  24. I uninstalled IntelliScreen too. I really liked having my calendar on the lockscreen, but 19,99$ is way too much! I mean, look at Labyrinth by Carl Loodberg. Ok, you have to pay for it too, but your license doesn’t expire and Carl answers almost every mail within a few hours.
    We’ll see what’ll happen to IntelliScreen, now that everybody uninstalls it…

  25. let’s boycott them everyone!

  26. hi doug I agree with everybody else that it’s to high but do you know any http so I can add new skins and see if it works and by the way everytime I ask for info you all never respond what’s up with that?

  27. the most appealing feature to me is showing the calendar – and i have just installed iToday, which essentially gives me what i wanted and most important of all, it’s FREE! i would consider giving a small donation to a developer like Skrew. i have just erased the source for intelliscreen from the installer.

  28. I hope noone buys it. It’ll knock some sense into the developer. $50?? Are you kidding me? Buy 10 apps and you’ve spent more than what your iPhone costs.

    I really liked this app, but $5 is all I would pay. Or screw that even, Hope there’s a crack out and everyone should use that.

    Support developers when they are reasonable.
    There will be idiots who’d still go and buy this…
    BOYCOTT is what everyone should do.

  29. And we can resize the windows now,anyone noticed that?

  30. for some reason my weather tab stopped working. I wonder if it’s related to this crap news. Now I get ” invalid location”

    Anyway, I really wanted to donate for such a nice app. But after this…..no way. I would have paid 5-10 bucks tops

  31. LESTATRI says

    I GUESS ITS SAFE TO SAY THAT $49.99 IS TOO EXPENSIVE…NOW LETS START BIDDING FOR A LOWER PRICE. DO I HEAR 99 CENTS ANYONE?

  32. my itoday doesnt work. I hit enable and nothing happens even tho i restarted my iphone. anyone have the same issue?

  33. Here we go again with the “pay thing”!!!! Watch and see most all the appts going this way! Time to start looking for another brand of phone I think. It was good while it lasted…

  34. Thank you can i get an amen. $50 is way to much. We really need to boycott against them and make it free cause we should have the option to donate. I really like intelliscreen and now they have gone way to far.

  35. hey doug you should do a poll on how many people think intelliscreen is a rip off….

  36. well its screwed my youtube forever, even after an uninstall, and they expect us to pay for this rubbish ???

    • MaverickC17 says

      BOYCOTT!!

      This is really a stupid move. This App just went from being one of the best to one of the worst. $50 for support….are you serious?? I would have paid maybe $10 for this but not $20. It’s a shame too because I really liked this App. It was up there with Customize and vWallpapers.

      This is a good opportunity for another developer to make something similar (Identical would be fine with me after this update).

      What happened with turning some features off anyway?? I don’t want to read or have anyone else read my email or texts on my lock screen.

      I hope everyone uninstalls Intelliscreen immediately!!

  37. skechada says

    This was an interesting app, but no way I’d pay more than a couple bucks for it.

  38. THIS APP WILL MESS UP YOUR BATTERY OVER LONG TERM USAGE AND DISTROY YOUR BATTERIES LIFE CYCLE. THAT IS THE MAIN REASON WHY APPSTORE DID NOT APPROVE OF THIS APPLICATION BECAUSE YOU ARN’T SUPPOSED TO BE RUNNING THIS EXTENSIVE ON THE LOCK SCREEN….DON’T boycott….

    JUST DONT USE THIS CRAPPY PRODUCT

    want other reasons as me (rp4k ) or BIGBOSS we will tell you the truth behind this app

  39. Notice that 20 bucks pays for 1.x upgrades. Probably means as soon as they call it 2.0 you pay another 20 bucks.

  40. What version started the time limit? I have 0.9 and no time limit was included with this.

    I agree with the rp4k battery life is short lived when app is running. I keep it turned off except for maybe 2 days a week.

    Not worth paying for or upgrading. I keep my not full featured, sometime used, free version for now.

  41. $50!!!…the guy has gone over his head…before i probably would have paid max $5 but now after he turns around and does this i’m not payin’ a cent over 49c…ya not even 50c…have fun developer…ohh n even though i have 9 days left i’m uninstalling it right now…
    this is the first time i’ve seen soo many people comment about one app…haha and its all negative
    doug brooke did u pay 4 this?

  42. If you guys take a look at the licensing page at Intelliborn, you’ll see that it is actually only $5 for basic (a few features missing) and $20 for Premium.

    I’m a little surprised at how many people expect this to be free software – anyone who has ever programmed will tell you that this likely took hundreds of hours to code…asking for the people who use it to pay a couple of bucks for it shouldn’t be such a ruckus.

    I’m even more surprised by how immature the iPhone ‘dev scene’ appears to be. Wow.

    • PS: Here is a $5 off coupon code: betatester

    • kk $20 for what…an app that ruins ur battery life? an app that slows ur iphone down?…plus i dont know if money grows on trees for you but $20 for 1 app without support?…if you have money to throw please do…

    • E.T.Cook says

      Agreed Scott. The audacity of a developer that would like to see the fruits of his labor!

      Have we really become such a handout society that we balk at the notion of someone charging a fee for the product of their hard work.

      Be glad that you got to utilize the program free thus far, and if you would like to partake in the paid version at $5, you are more than welcome to do so.

      I also enjoy how people are utilizing straw man argument techniques. By choosing the absolutely most expensive option, they characterize the software itself.

      Ford F-150s, depending on model an options can cost upwards of 55k…however if someone introduced the F-150 as a 55k vehicle, he would be laughed at.

      Have some more integrity guys. Seriously.

    • Dear Scott and E.T.,

      Geniuses that you may think that you are (I certainly don’t)…..don’t you think it is plain common sense that you can get a return on your investment of your so called 100 plus hours of programming by charging a value which the so called “handout” society deems more reasonable so that a larger portion of it actually buys it. I am sorry, but it is this same “handout” society, using their “strawmen” arguments, that are going to be this stupid developer’s “customers” (ever heard of that word guys????). And you wanna talk about integrity.
      Furthermore, everyone who has used the program in its beta version with pretty much all the options, why for God’s sake would they pay 4.99 to have one which doesnt have all of them later…in my proud country, this is called being C&C (cheap and a cheat).
      And please, don’t compare this piece of crap program to a Ford 150….

      With regards,

      Shake

    • agreed shake

  43. I think they’ll get the message that not many people will purchase this app. Personally, I never liked it much anyways and to charge this amount is plain madness.

  44. I think the app is oaky, not worth what they are asking for it (for my needs). I agree that the developer has every right to ask for compensation for his work and we have the right to decide if it’s worth the price. For me, it’s not, so I uninstalled it. I did pay 14.95 for Moleskine because it’s an app that I find very useful.

  45. This is absolute rubbish!!!!! 50 dollars….that is way crazy….I am uninstalling it rite now!!!! Never ever am i gonna be using any software or product from this stupid capitalist developer..must be out of his/her frickin’ mind.!!!!

  46. THIS APP WILL NEVER MAKE IT SAYS APPLE THIS IS WHY NON DEVELOPERS SHOULDN’T MAKE APPS

  47. I WILL FLOOD THIS FORUM WITH INFO ON WHY THIS APP IS SO BAD FOR YOUR PHONE AND WHAT IT DOES TO YOUR BATTERY OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME… want more info.. check OUT THE REAL DEV MEMBERS in IRC core.osx86.hu #iphone REMEMBER ALWAYS CHECK http://www.appleiphoneschool.com before installing something because US DEVs read and post in these forums all day l ong

  48. (New poster)

    I have version 0.95. Will this mean that I can keep using it, or is there also a timelimit (the 10th) on this version?

  49. I was so psyched when I downloaded this app like not much more than a week ago and then I find out after an update that itz going to cost me to use it?! I’d rather take the time to look up each and everything one by one for free. I was really bummed. I mean I would have been willing to pay $5 to unlock everything, but not for what they are offering! I can’t even get alerts for $5? But for free I can get it all, but it just takes a few more steps…no thanks. MyPhone cost enough as it is, and then Steve wouldn’t even let us customize them (“legally”) and now apps want to start charging more than what some ppl pay for cell phone service….besides this my only other complaint was that I got way less life out of my battery the days I had this app enabled. Other than that I was way more than impressed with the awesomeness of the idea of IntelliScreen. R.I.P.- Free IntelliScreen…
