Default Replace HTC Lockscreen, an Incredible Find!

Hey folks..
Like a lot of people, I've never been real happy with the HTC lockscreen design. I'm referring to their "swipe down to unlock" sense looking lock you see when waking up the screen. I much prefer the android lockscreen that you swipe left to right to unlock, or right to left to mute. Besides the appearance, I seem to unlock it a lot by accident when pulling out of my pocket. Well, if you're like me in this respect, there is a solution in the market. Widgetlocker! Not only does this replace the HTC lockscreen, but it allows you to move widgets to your lockscreen!! Been using it a few days now, and absolutely love it! It's smooth, small footprint, works with live wallpapers, and is highly configureable! Example: HTC lockscreen can be bypassed by simply bumping the menu key. Not with Widgetlocker. (unless you want to enable it), Another great feature is it allows you to wake up the screen by pressing the trackball/trackpad! Definitely worth a look if you want a more slick lockscreen!

I can't get it to download. I purchased it. Every time I try and download it just says "download unsuccessful". I've tried it on wifi and on 3g.

Launch Google talk and go back to market. Sometimes that gives market a nudge.

the best thing i have found about this is you can enable the volume controls to work at the lock screen. that is a plus for me, now i don't have to slide to unlock just to adjust the volume when i get to work. and i like having the old slider back, where i can mute to the left. i do not mind the sense slider, and might go back to that. i'll have to sit with this a while. but thanks, very nice.

Just bought this app and all I can say is IT IS WELL WORTH THE MONEY. I can't say how tired I was of having to unlock my DInc by the button at the top of the phone!

I love the fact that you can put widgets on the lockscreen and customize it any way you like with different features for unlocking your phone!

Thanks so much for finding this app and sharing the word this should be a big hit!!!!

yeah, i did not see them, either. i'd love to have the clock/weather widget there, but no go. i have a zillion clock/date widgets, though, so i used another (divi clock, which gives me instant access to my calendar and/or alarm clock).

Can you interact with widgets on the lock screen? If so, is your phone really locked? or is the point to not lock the phone in the first place?

you can interact with the widgets on the lock screen, that is the point. if the widget launches a program, then you can hit the home key after that and it will take you to the home screen. so in that way, you can either unlock it with whichever swipe you pick, or you can "unlock" it with an app activating widget. but if it's a widget that just toggles something (like my "screen on" and my "car mode" widgets), then it will just toggle those things, but you still have to swipe to unlock. so the phone is really locked, but you can bypass the lock via some widgets. hope that makes sense.

I think the several seconds thing is to keep you from doing it by accident. Lockbot is the same way.


I LOVE this app!

I'm actually finding this out now too for some reason. When I first got the app a while ago, I just had to tap the trackpad and it woke the phone flawlessley.

I just went to wake the phone and now it doesn't always work...I have to press it several times or even hold it down for this feature to work.

I just emailed the developer so hopefully he can fix it so this works 100% of the time as this is IMO one of the most appealing features of this app, especially for us DInc owners who find it cumbersome to wake their phones with the button at the top of the phone

Yeah already have that set. Maybe the app just lags a bit upon startup. When my phone first boots I have the Sense swipdown to unlock. After the one minute timeout (upon first boot) WidgetLocker is then enabled.

when you are at the swipescreen, hit menu>settings. click on Clear Default Home. then touch your home button. you get your home options in a pop up. choose Make Default! WLocker Helper. that will make it so your swipe screen goes to widgetlocker every time.

you can still use the sense downward swipe. it's one of the options under "slider and layout". but you can also enable the other cool options, like being able to wake from other buttons besides the top one, and putting widgets on the swipe screen. so you get the best of all worlds. :-)

i'm pretty sure you cannot do that. sorry. you have to have the same background for lockscreen as you have for your regular home.

might want to email the dev and ask for that feature.

this has become one of my favorite things i'm using on my phone. however, that said, there seems to be some sort of issue with screen time out. it seems to time out very quickly no matter what i have my settings on. right now i have both my phone and the app set to 30 seconds, but it definitely times out sooner than that. i have a game (word up) that i'm almost constantly interacting with when it's open, and it's never threatened to time out before. now when i pause for a very short time, it wants to time out. i'm not sure if i'm just noticing this all the sudden or if it really is a glitch. has anyone else had a similar problem with the screen timing out faster than you'd like?

i think it's strange that there is a setting where you can have the screen lock come on during a phone call. i'm not sure why you would want that to happen, ever. but you can set it that way. strange (to me).

There's huge lag, in that it shows the stock Sense lock screen then shows the WidgetLocker lock screen. If it didn't do this, then I'd be happy. Got my refund back.

if you follow the directions i listed above, you will have no lag at all:

when you are at the swipescreen, hit menu>settings. click on Clear Default Home. then touch your home button. you get your home options in a pop up. choose "Make Default! WLocker Helper". that will make it so your swipe screen goes to widgetlocker every time.

and, i will add, it does it instantly, rather than any lag. it's too bad you already got your refund, because this really does work.

My optical wake was pretty laggy...until I rebooted. Now it wakes up right when I press the button.

One thing I do notice though (and someone mentioned this above), when I reboot the sense screen will come up first. Thats it though, never again unless I reboot again.

And yes, I do have it set as my default.

One question though, the right hand slider that says sound, what exactly is this supposed to mute?

I love this program, it just sucks that its a habit now to wake it with the power button. I want to stop that because my power button isnt level like it should be. One side is more "in the phone" than the other side.

Im glad to see this doesnt keep the phone awake when you put it to sleep. That was my biggest problem with lockbot.

yeah, that was the first test i ran on it. so far i haven't found any problems with it except that screen time out that seems a bit too quick.

i was but then i realized i wanted it because i use handcent, and i have it wake the phone when i get a text. i like to see the little notification icon when it wakes it up, then i can easily pull down the notification bar and check it. if it wasn't for that, i would have kept it off.

I have my notification bar turned off. I never have my phone on silent so I always hear it come through. I just hit the menu button and then select notifications that way.

Mine was also laggy until I rebooted the phone. It runs perfect now!

Why not just enable the pop-up window to wake the screen when you receive a text? I have/do that and i love it! Its just like the iphone, although i do not love it for that reason. I just love the convenience.
As far as widgetlocker goes, its cool but wont always react when i press the trackpad. Seemingly only works once ever 4 or 5 tries. Other than that, i love it!

OP, thanks for tip on this app, well worth the 99 cents.

I've moved the picture frame widgets of my kids to the lockscreen, added the battery life and switchpro widget. This allowed me to clear out my default homescreen.

yes, and i encourage anyone having any problems at all with this app to email the dev, he is very responsive and working hard on lots of improvements. can't wait for next week's update!

for anyone who has widgets that don't seem to work well with widgetlocker, just email the dev and let him know which one and what doesn't work. i'm sure he'll look into it. better to improve the app than just give up on it because of one thing that might be fixable.
