Smart Lockscreen Creator

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Have you ever looked at your iPhone's Lockscreen and wished it gave you more information than your basic wallpaper? Well now it can!
With Smart Lockscreen Creator, you can customize your iPhone's lockscreen to display truly useful information. Lockscreen additions include:
* Current weather, condition, high and low for any city/region in the World
* Weekly forecast for any city/region in the World
* Monthly calendar
* Custom text
* Blank space (useful when customizing the look of your lockscreen)
* Line separator
* Many more in the works!
**How It Works**
Once the app is open, you select the wallpaper that you want for your lockscreen. After that, you hit the + sign to add widgets. A widget is one of the items mentioned above (weather, text, etc...). The order in which the widgets appear in the list, is the order they will be displayed on your lockscreen. You can reorder or remove them by tapping the edit button in the top left corner.
Each widget has its own configuration options such as location or text. Simply tap on a widget to change its options.
When you are satisfied with the widgets and options, tap the Preview & Save button to see what it will look like. Then tap the Save button in the upper corner to save the image to your Camera Roll.
Finally, set the saved images as the wallpaper for your lockscreen and you are done.
** Note To Users **
It is against Apple's SDK policy to allow the widgets to update automatically on your lockscreen. You will need to generate a new lockscreen image, every time you want it to update.
We have quite a few updates planned with many more "widgets". So, please check out Smartlockscreen and leave your suggestions in the reviews!
Don't ever have a boring unintelligent lockscreen again!
What's New in Version 1.1.2
* Fixed issue where images in portrait mode were showing up sideways
* Other minor bug fixes and optimizations
This app is awesome. No it doesn't update automatically but that's only cause Apple makes it impossible. My lockscreen looks sweet now with the weather. It's super useful. I update the lock screen image every couple days since which is really easy to do. I can't wait until Apple allows developers to update the lock screen automatically...it'll be even cooler then.
They do state this does not provide auto updating widgets so don't fuss. I knew that when I bought it. I'm impressed with the apps ability to create backgrounds so quickly. The app does what they claim and could be useful to someone.
But I'm still looking for a weather widget that is an alternate to the default yahoo one. I hope you guys could be it one day.
This app stinks
Silly me for not reading the fine print. The lock screen doesn't update with current weather information. To me, that makes this app 100% worthless.
