SmartScreen is a soon-to-be-released application that will add little widgets on your iPhone lock screen, letting you access information witout having to launch any application. You’ll be able to rearrange these widgets in the same way you move icons around.

Looking at the video demo below, I am very eager to get my hands on SmartScreen as I think it will be one of the best iPhone hacks ever. Needless to day that SmartScreen won’t be available in the App Store…

MediaPhone, the guys behind SmartScreen, will even have an SDK available:

A SmartScreen SDK will be available to everyone in November 2009 but widget developers are being selected to participate in a Beta programme, if you feel you could participate and would like to produce widgets, please email and we will consider you early access to the programme.

I really can’t wait for this to be available. Exciting, isn’t it?

    hmm…interesting, but i dont want as big widgets as them in the video, its not a looking good type, i hope it will have smaller widgets that looks pretty, but finally i dont understand why the apple hasnt do anything like that already? the iphone is a really smart phone, and can do many things, with jailbreak more, but this function that is missing, i want to just take a look at my phone and know whos called me, or got new messages, or e-mails, why i need to unlock the phone, and go into the selected areas one-by-one, if i want to know just whats the subject of the last few mails, or whos called me, or whats the first letters of my new sms. so this staff will be really good and nice 🙂

    Hey Adesh,

    no worries about being off topic. This is your blog as much as mine so we can talk about whatever we want.

    I actually work for myself. I “make money online” , mostly through affiliate marketing.

    I read somewhere you can pinch widgets to resize them. I think it was on the mediaphone page. Don’t know if it’s what they meant though…

    Looks similar to Intelliscreen, but those extra pages look kinda nice, shiny pink nails!!
