WidgetLocker is a lock screen replacement that puts you in control of the look, feel and layout of your lock screen.
- Drag and Drop placement of Sliders, Android Widgets and App Shortcuts
- Sliders look selectable from built-in styles (Ice Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread, Sense and Sense 3, Motorola, iPhone, and Rotary) or from user-themes.
- Slider Actions can be customized, for example Slide-to-launch-Camera or Slide-to-call-your-Girlfriend.
- Resizable widgets and custom grid size
- Notification badges on apps/sliders via TeslaUnread ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teslacoilsw.notifier )
- Customize which widgets/buttons are allowed or blocked at the lock screen
Portions of WidgetLocker are based on the excellent ADW.Launcher ( http://t.co/YvVMkGc ) by Ander Webb and friends.

Amazing product! Great way to tweak your lock screen. Only flaw: popups for GoSMS still display above lock screen, even with block option on in WL.

Its cool and I love the idea. But lately when I try and unlock the phone, it disables the touch screen. I have to reboot and force stop it. Kinda lame

This app is smooth and flexible on the HTC Aria. However, the option to use any hardware key to wake up the phone only works about 20% of the time.

love being able to change my lockscreen. I like it much better than my htc lockscreen. But it's a wee bit laggy.

Great app so far. Really makes things usable. Would be nice to set a delay before the screen goes off and the lock comes on tho.

Incredible app! Have had it for around 5 months and have yet to experience any problems. High level of customization and easy to use.

Customisation works very well. but doesn't work well when we apply security for screen unlock. disappointed with this part.

Absolutely superb. Well thought out & developed app. Won't want 2 go back 2 not unlocking direct to an app I choose now. Slightly laggy but no problem

Used to be my favorite app, but had become very unstable lately & no updates since I purchased it months ago. Regularly crashes my phone.

This app doesn't work well with security for unlocking, but it's still pretty good. However, it's still extremely usable. I can't imagine not having this kind of control on my lockscreen now. I hope the developer continues to improve its speed.
