Lock Screen Exhibition

Exhibition is really one of the under-appreciated features of webOS, despite the power of glanceable information it brings to bear. The big limitation is that it's confined to the Touchstone charger, which it need not be. Particularly with smartphones we've taken to them as glanceable information devices - What time is it? Do I need to look at that email?

But it could be so much more, and with the framework for Exhibition already in place, making it so much more wouldn't be that much of a leap. The time has come for Exhibition to make it to the lock screen, both in the form of built-in customizable modules and from third party apps. It can even tie off the same settings from Exhibition on Touchstone, so you get the same view when charging and when glancing.

Apart from an Agenda view, clock, and photos, what else could lock screen Exhibition bring to bear? Oh, just the most recent posts on Twitter or Facebook, glancing over stock feeds, a few of the latest news headlines, expanded weather forecasts, and upcoming calendar appointments, just to name a few. And with Exhibition already an option available to developers, we can imagine plenty more taking place on the lock screen.

Have your own thoughts on this webOS Wish List entry? Of course you do - the comments are below. Surely you have your own ideas as to what ought be on the webOS wish list, and so we've created a forum thread just for what has proven to be an awesome discussion.
