    Are there any lock screen apps that will allow instant access to the camera without bypassing security?

    I.E. Magic Locker will let you go from the lock screen directly to camera, but once in camera you can hit home or back to go to the home screen, thereby circumventing/bypassing your security. Security only work if you actually try to go directly to the home screen.

    It's really not that big of a deal i guess. Pattern lock is pretty fast.

    Now I have a question about Go Launcher vs Holo Launcher.
    In Holo Launcher there is a folder preview option which will show the icons stacked in the folder. Go Launcher doesn't have this option. And as far as i can tell it's not a theme option but an actually Launcher option.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to get that option in Go Launcher. I plan on contacting the Dev, but just wondering if someone knew a way already.

    That is the only thing so far that Holo Launcher had that Go launcher didn't. I realize that Holo Launcher is meant to be a no frills launcher built for efficentcy, but I like the goofy transitions that Go Launcher has. And I like the Go Launcher pop up menu more than the spartan Holo Launcher one. So if Go Launcher had the same folder preview options that Holo Launcher has, i would be all set.

    You should also check out apex launcher. Try the free version first and if you like it the pro version is well worth the small price.

    Funny that you mention that, i stumble across a poll that voted Apex the best launcher. So i was planning on trying that one. That was just before i read this post.

    I can't use Apex or Nova, they both require Android 4.0+, I have an LG connect, so i only have Gingerbread 2.3, though i do have a custom ROM, Black Plague 1.2. i don't know if LG Connect will get Android 4.0+
