Display Calendar Event on iPhone Lock Screen using Lock Calendar

Lock Calendar is a very simple application that does only one thing — display your calendar events on iPhone lock screen. I’m always looking for such free application that makes good use of the iPhone lock screen. Lock Calendar is very promising and exactly what I’m looking for (and probably you too).

Lock Calendar is now available for download via Cydia and it’s completely free. No setup, no reboot or configuration is required after installation. Once Lock Calendar is installed, go to your iPhone lock screen and you’ll see the latest calendar events shown. The events are shown up nicely and categorized by date with the time, title and location displayed.

So, if you want to have a quick overview of your scheduled events, download and install Lock Calendar. You’ll find it useful.

    Good app but It would be perfect if we had 1 or 2 options to setup this thing. Like how many days/months to display.

    Do you think a future iphone-iPod update will allow things to be displayed on lockscreen without jailbreaking such as this? Or an analog clock like you can do now, although it needs to be jb. Any rumors from apple or anything?

    Jay, I also hope Apple will bundle this feature into the next firmware version. But I haven’t heard about this. That’s why I consider jailbreak and recommend other to jailbreak iPhone. It opens up opportunity to install other great 3rd-party applications.

    This is awesome! I didn’t see the reason to jailbreak my phone for any of the other apps out there, but this was absolutely worth it. Thanks for the post!

    Awesome!! Really love it!!!

    Just a question: is it possible to change the blue color for the “today activities”???
    That really suck…

    But anyway, that’s my best app for my Ipod.. I am really happy with it.

    Thank a lot.

    I upgraded to the latest version and now my phone cannot boot up! It’s stuck at the Apple logo!

    I just tried this on a 3G with iOS4 and it is no longer working. It used to with 3.1.2. I hope it gets updated to support iOS4.

    I’ve got the same problem as Vernon :S
    Waiting for update…

    No problems here. Installed it after jailbreaking through and works like a charm. Had to restart the springboard to get it to run.

    Loving it also. Would’nt mind having a few configuration options, e.g. the blue font in the header.

    Nice app. Currently it only shows start-time of each event. Is it possible to have end-time too? It would look even more clearer if weekday and date are placed next to each other – not separated as per now.
