|Available In: Cydia||Price: Free|
Yesterday, Saurik released Cydget in Cydia. Cydget is a “framework for managing lock screen plugins.”
Cydget isn’t necessarily an application in itself instead it is more of a framework that allows other people to create lock screen plugins that work within Cydget. Allowing you to manage lock screen plugins without the use of WinterBoard. The plugins are managed in the stock Settings application where they can be activated/deactivated and reordered.
Once on the lock screen, you can rotate through the activated lock screen plugins by tapping the Home Button.
The application does work with lock screen mods such as LockInfo (as long as they are compatible with SBAwayViewPlugins) as well as Quick Dismiss which also uses the Home Button on the lock screen.
I have a feeling that once there are more plugins available… this is going to be a very sweet “app.” Cydget is available through Saurik’s source (which is already on your device) so.. just search for Cydget in Cydia and it should be there.
Like WinterBoard Themes, Cydgets are configured using a reorderable list. Go to “Settings” then “Cydget” to activate, deactivate, and organize.
An example Cydget is included to demonstrate the technology: show a random picture from your camera roll.
Some of Cydget’s core benefits:
- configuration allows HTML scrolling
- multiple Cydgets can be rotated
- they stop running when screen dims
- Cycript embedding for library calls
