I love customizing the look of my Android phone, it’s one of the many Android features that I’ve come to appreciate. I’m constantly tinkering with it, whether it is changing its wallpaper, adding widgets or experimenting with different launchers or lock screens. The look of my phone doesn’t stay the same for long.
WidgetLocker is a lock screen replacement that puts you in control of the look, feel and layout of your lock screen. You can customize the placement of sliders, as well as adding applications, widgets and app shortcuts to the lock screen.
I’ve used WidgetLocker for some time, until I picked up a Sensation 4G with Sense. I preferred the Sense lock screen to those available on WidgetLocker, until its most recent update. TeslaCoil software upgraded WidgetLocker to v2.21 and now includes customized sliders that mimic Ice Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread, Sense and Sense 3, Motorola, iPhone, and Rotary as well as customized user-themes.
The great thing about WidgetLocker is that not only does it make it easy to give your phone a custom look, it can actually make you more productive. The addition of being able to add my most used apps as well as widgets and custom actions like mute from the lock screen make this application a must have for me. WidgetLocker by TeslaCoil Software is $2.99 and available now from the Android Marketplace.
