TweetBoard: View Your Twitter Messages From the Lock Screen

In theory, a jailbreak tweak like TweetBoard sounds great. Viewing all of your Twitter information from the comforts of your Lock screen is one of the reasons that IntelliScreen X is so highly anticipated.

But the problem with TweetBoard is that it’s half-baked. As it turns out, you can’t actually view your timeline from your Lock screen at all, only your particular tweets.

Not only is there the problem with the inability to view your timeline, but you also can’t reply to tweets, or do much of anything else from TweetBoard.

To add insult to injury, the tweak is hardcoded to use a double press of the home button to invoke from your Lock screen, eliminating the traditional way of pulling up your App switcher.

TweetBoard is a tweak that sounds good on paper, but the execution leaves much to be desired. If you’re interested in figuring this out for yourself, you can give it a whirl for $0.99 on Cydia.
