    In case you've never heard of it, you should. It's the best Lockscreen replacement app! You can add basically any widgets on the Lockscreen and biggest +...

    It unlocks without lag! :D

    And neither one of you guys has had trouble with information not displaying properly (battery life, weather, etc.)? I've been reading reviews, and there seem to be a great deal of complaints in this regard. Also others having even more lag when using it to unlock their device.

    I don't mind spending $.99 on this app, as long as it does what it says it does.

    You have to search for it as one word or it won't show up, at least on appbrain...

    It seems to be updating fine for me so far today.

    I've been using it too since yesterday.

    I actually like it best for the ability to unlock using the back or camera buttons.

    Now, I just hit home->back to wake->unlock. Love it.

    I haven't put too many widgets on the lock screen yet.

    Great app. Thanks. :)

    Still has lag when you are unlocking into the camera application, but greatly improved over stock.

    *edit*
    spoke too soon. It unlocks if I press the hardware buttons (even if the settings are only set for the slider).

    Sometimes, it also loads up the original lockscreen when I unlock, and the widgetlocker screen 2-3 seconds later. Anyone else have this problem?

    Well I don't have a battery life widget or weather widget (other than Beautiful Home) on it, so I wouldn't know. I have a music widget, messages widget, and To Do widget. They all work just fine. I'm not getting any lag. The unlock is smooth for me. For others? Well... I can't do anything about that. If you don't like it, you can always just get a refund. For me, $.99 is worth it. One less item from the $.99 store :p

    I've been using it for a few weeks, first on my Droid and now on my Droid X. I love it, well worth the money.

    One of the best and most overlooked features is there is an option to change the phone to vibrate instead of silent when you slide to the right. Should be standard, but it isn't.

    Combine WidgetLocker with CalWidget and WeatherBug Elite and you have the perfect lockscreen.

    This is one of my favorite apps by far and well worth the money!!

    i thought it was $1.99? I've had it on mine for a couple days now and love it. No lag, run "batteryleft" "BeautifulWidgets" and the MotoMessanger widget on it and they all seem to be right for me...

    my .02, it was worth my 199 cents

    Is it possible to remove the stock lock? I can't figure out how or where to do it.

    Edit: Found it...

    $0.99 was the introductory price, now it's $1.99 on the market.

    This app looks great, but I'm a cheap bastard :D I think I'll probably end up getting it though.

    I like it except for the fact that the option to use any button to wake the phone doesn't work after the phone has been "sleeping" for a while.

    If you have an X, the Home button wakes the phone. I find that a fine solution. Does that not suffice for you?

    The home button works as it should but you'd think the option that allows pressing any button to wake the phone would work also. Don't you agree?
