Android has the Widget, Windows the Live Tile and now iOS the Block. Simply pinch an icon bigger to reveal more information and release to leave it. If you like iOS the way it is, nothing changes. If you want a little more, it's all there.
Machalani has created a video that explains his concept for the iOS Block.
"When you pinch the icon, you will see the transformation/transition into a Block and at that point you have two choices: Either you pinch it back to an icon since you got the information you need or you release your fingers and the icon will remain a Block on your iOS screen. This combination of transforming into a Block either to quickly consult or to change your home screen is critical. You can easily have your next calendar event showing on your Calendar block on your iPhone and you can quickly go through 3-4 apps using a quick pinch and pinch back maneuver on your iPad to quickly consult an app and not end up opening and closing every single one of them."
