FlyScreen, the lock screen replacement for Android and Symbian phones from Israeli startup Cellogic, has landed on the iPhone. But not as we know it.That's because Apple's iOS is locked down as it were (see what I did there) and doesn't allow third-party apps to take over the lock screen. This doesn't mean that iPhone users of FlyScreen don't get access to the app's array of content widgets - they do - but this functionality is accessible like any other app. However, Cellogic has come up with a nice new twist for FlyScreen, something that the company is calling "Ambient Mode", a more fun presentation of content for when the phone is docked.
