Widgets for iOS 5 Notification Center Are Coming Via Jailbreak

Will Homer has developed the first 'Hello World' widget for the iOS Notification Center.

There are still some bugs to be worked out; however, Homer says its pretty simple for developers.

Its pretty easy to understand, you create a class that implements the BBWeeAppController protocol. The only required function you must have is '- (UIView *)view' in which you must return the view that you want to appear. There are also other methods in the protocol for launching URLs when tapped and for rotation detection, view height, etc.

A GitHub project has been created for the sample widget. Developers can start working on their own widget thanks to the jailbreak released earlier today.

The notifications will already be on the lockscreen in iOS 5. Anything else like weather, rss emails etc and there is lockinfo.
