    Alright, so I really only no one rule for developers in the SDK, and that is yo cannot make an app that messes with the music player, but does it say anything about the lock screen, because if not, would it be possible to get intelliscreen on here.

    For all of you who don't know, Intelliscreen was a jailbroken app that allowed you to put sports scores, e-mail messages, RSS feeds, and weather all on your lock screen. It also gave you two lock screen pages, so if you tapped in one of the upper corners, your lock screen would flip, and you would have more stuff on your second lock screen. Also, if you tapped the home button once, it took you to a quich screen, still on your lock screen, called intellidial, which is essentially a speed dial for the lock screen.

    This was a really fun and handy app so I was wondering if apple would allow it to be on the appstore, because I would be willing to pay to have this back again

    I used it all the time and it is the thing i miss most from my 1.1.4. Apple won't allow applications that run in the background, like intelliscreen would. I think that's the reason that Intelliborn can't make it for 2.0. But cross your fingers cause 2.0JB is coming very soon!

    It doesn't have to run in the background. I'm sure he could come up with some kind of push thing to make it work. Its not allowed for the same reasons customize and summerboard are not allowed.
