Android App Review – WidgetLocker

Android App Review   WidgetLocker

WidgetLocker is an android lock screen replacement. The point of the app is that you can add widgets and shortcuts to your lockscreen. The first thought I had about this was “why would I want to do that”.

First of all WidgetLocker is a paid app it cost $1.99, but in my opinion it’s worth it. Once installed you are confronted with lots of options as is usual with any new app. You then start of with a basic froyo look lockscreen and a new clock widget. You can add more sliders, widgets. The below screenshots show the starting point and how custom sliders are made.

You can add several custom sliders, rows of shortcuts or widgets. You can also have a different stlye of unlock slider. So if you want an iphone style unlock, a htc sense unlock or a vanilla android unlock these are all options. Here are the htc style, eclair style and a couple of custom sliders on the standard style.

The options are nearly endless. You can add sms or gmail shortcuts, speed dials for you favourite contacts, camera shortcuts or quick shortcuts to audio profiles. You can decide whether or not to enable these shortcuts so they could be just for display purposes ie a clock or battery widget. Below are lots of remaining screenshots showing various other options.
