Sidebar and HomeScreen 2.0 are two widgets available in Cydia via the Touch-Mania source. I gave a preview to Sidebar here on 14th December. Basically what it does is shows the analogue version of the time, the current month’s calendar with the current date highlighted and finally the weather. HomeScreen 2.0 shows the date, weather, missed calls, new emails, RSS feeds and more. Read more inside!
Sidebar is going to be available in Cydia at the end of the year. Basically what it will do is:
- Show the time in digital format.
- Show the time in analogue format.

There is going to be 2 versions. One more Vista like and the other more Apple like. Sidebar is being brought to us from the creators of MusicPlayer 8 Colours and SoccerGuide. Screenshot inside.
