    Any opinions?

    Ive seen Lock 2.0 and a few others, but havent heard from AF users about them. I dont like going off of the market comments. lol

    Any advice of which to choose? Perhaps your favorite?

    I've used 3 lockscreens on my phone. [Fascinate]
    GOTO, Lock 2.0 and WidgetLocker.
    GOTO wasn't that bad. You could have your own wallpaper.
    The slider at the bottom had; Messages, Phone, Gmail and unlock.
    It had a big box at the top though that had the time, date and weather. Which got in the way for me, so I changed. http://imgur.com/bwHws.png
    Lock 2.0 was the worst though. For me, when I used a personal background with the unlock slider, it would set the image off 'bout 20pixels. It also wasn't a big enough lock screen for my phone. With a large black space at the bottom.
    Like so: http://imgur.com/MOpZi.png
    So that was a definite no.
    Then I found widget locker. And it's been my favorite so far.
    With the other two, if I pressed lock and then pressed it again, my old lockscreen would popup like half a second before the other lockscreen. With WL I don't have that problem, it just comes up and it's fast.
    It's so much more customizable. You can add app icons and widgets to your lock screen. Different slider actions. Different slider looks. Like mine for example is the "slide to unlock" type that is famous on the iPhones, etc.
    So yes. WidgetLocker Lockscreen is a 10. And so much better than the other two that I've tried.
  5. I have a question about Widget Locker.

    Does it have an option that after you slide to unlock, you must enter a passcode? I like this about Lockbot Pro.

    I do not like, however, the issue with Lockbot Pro where the stock lockscreen always comes up before the Lockbot lock screen.

    Thank you,

    *EDIT* Also one other question, are there custom lock screen themes that you can download using this program like you can with Lockbot Pro?

    I had the same issue with Widgetlocker so I emailed the dev. he explained that google requires the original lockscreen to be used with the pin lock. I use exchange mail that forces a password policy, it's the only reason that I uninstalled the app.

    to your other question, it doesn't have downloadable themes but it does give you about 6 different lockscreen options that you can add custom sliders, widgets and icons to.....awesome app (passcode issue slightly irritating, but can't do anything about it)
