The problem with these "lockscreen apps" is that they're basically just ugly unsupported hacks. They regularly bug out, show the normal lockscreen first, and also suffer from not being widely supported or having to do weird tricks like set it as your launcher, but then have to set your launchers launcher in the launcher.
sometimes you don't want your phone locked. I have a widget that toggles the lockscreen on and off, so clicking a button brings you right to the home-screen. Very useful when at home or in the car when security is not important but opening your phone fast is.
I would like to be able to read incoming texts on the lock screen and slide them open to reply ... without having them open to start typing without a slide to unlock - can anyone tell me how to do that?
+Kahil Nettleton true, but this app give you pretty little notifications at a glance, just push the lock button to fire up the screen and take a look...I know it defeats the purpose of a touch screen, but, no touching required (unless you want to dismiss or launch the app)
+Maharini Chintya exactly... +Justin Virly many music player apps will put a widget on the lock screen. Doubletwist, one of the most popular ones, does if you have audio playing when you turn off the screen it'll be on the l ock screen when you turn the phone on. (it also lets you air twist video and audio to your XBox.)
