    Stock has slide left for camera, and right for unlocking the phone. I rather miss the option from my Nexus One to slide and silence the phone.

    It seems like there are a few spaces to slide to above the stock 2 options, is there any way to add things there?

    not on stock. there is an app called WidgetLocker, it does that and much more. for instance, adding apps and widgets on the lockscreen

    WidgetLocker is the only lock screen I ever use. You can customize your sliders to launch any app you want, and have multiple sliders. Plus you can put any widget on your lock screen. There are also a bunch of themes to give it any look you want.

    Also, many custom roms come with extra lock screen shortcuts.

    For example I'm using Fab's rom and you can have camera, dialer, sms, and unlock buttons.

    Aside from widget lock, there's another good lock screen replacement called ripple lock with customizable shortcuts.

    the reviews on market say WidgetLocker drains the battery very fast. can you guys who have it comment on your experience with it on the GNex?

    I haven't used WidgetLocker on my Nexus, but I used it on my Droid2 and I never noticed any battery drain from it.

    I have used WidgetLocker since it was released. Used it on my Droid, Droid X, Nexus S, and GSII and it does not drain the battery very much at all. After a days usage it shows on my battery usage usually around 2%.

    The battery usage should be about the same regardless of what phone it is on.

    I use and love widget locker. Don't really notice any appreciable battery loss.

    As 4.0.3 has been compiled in many custom ROMs -- it does not contain up/down swipes on the lock screens.

    Custom ROMs though, they do provide this feature with some code written by developers. Seen below.

    I am not using Widgetlocker on my nexus. Loved it on my incredible but I did feel like it was draining my battery and we all know with this phone we can't afford anything helping the battery drain. I may revisit but for now I'm content.
