Confused A newbie needs help

Hi,

I've just signed up so I'm new to all this Android Theme stuff but I was wondering how people get their Android lock screens in particular to be so different unique? I've also seen the word widget a few times and wonder what the difference is between a widget and an app?

I hope this is in the right place as well, thanks!

Hello, Vesta and I would be glad to help if you want to change the lock screen theme of your phone (make it different) then I would suggest downloading Go Launcher Ex from the android market. With that launcher you can add a lot more personalization to your device from changing the way the screen transitions when you slide your finger left or right, to changing your lock screen. Also, one of the widgets you see is the clock, like on an HTC phone or there's other ones that display your contacts, messages, time, mail, weather and much more.

Thanks for the information! Are these apps safe to download though? I'm just a bit concerned that I might mess something up because of the lack of knowledge in this sort of area, didn't even know you could do half the things mentioned on this forum till I joined either!

Of course! I have Go launcher on my Inspire and have never had one problem with it. And it's good to want to be safe when downloading apps from the market. You should come check this thread out about app safety. Android permissions explained, security tips, and avoiding malware
I hope you find this useful! Glad I could be of help. Oh, and before I forget here's the link to Go launcher too. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.gau.go.launcherex&feature=search_re sult#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5nYXUuZ28ubGF1bmNoZX JleCJd
