The Teehan+Lax iPhone home screen concept is about to become a reality thanks to saurik.
Initially the concept will materialize as a lockscreen widget via saurik’s new Cydget framework. Dubbed Element, a beta will hopefully be available by next week.
You can see from the screens it’s essentially just a scrollable list of applications and notifications. We envision it behaving in much the same way that the list view does in the Calendar application. By default it may track things like missed calls, unread emails and calendar events. But what if users could allow other apps to feed into this screen as well? If I’m a Facebook junkie I’d be able to tell the Facebook app to include certain feeds on my home screen. If I was a frequent traveler I may include the Tripit app to show me my upcoming trips. The options would only be limited by what apps you have installed.
Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
