I would like a good one also, just like the default one, but with a calendar agenda on it or a way to place a widget on the lockscreen
WidgetLocker Lockscreen for Android

Been using lockbot for awhile now works really good. Love bein able to make custom lock screens in different setups.

Is there a way to remove the vibration from Lockbot?
I don't want it vibrating everytime i unlock the phone. As i normally rest my phone on the table, it's quite a distracting noise just to unlock it.
Yes there is. Once you open the app, Menu>Config>Vibrate. You can check or uncheck the option.
Do any of these replacement lock screens lock you out 100% ?
I tried a couple that would allow you access via the pulldown menu when the screen was supposed to be locked.
I'm keen to change my lockscreen but I want it to be 100% locked and only accessible via the correct unlock method with no work arounds.
Perfect, exactly what I was looking for plus more
LockBot Pro is messing up some of my other widgets... any good less buggy alternatives?
Oh damn, opps sorry... I even looked really fast for something recently... Seems nobody has much besides lockbot tho =(
I bought Widget Locker today and it is exactly what I wanted. I emailed the dev with one idea to improve it, he emailed me back very quickly and said it was already in the works in an upcoming update. Out of all of my apps, this is one of my favorites.
I like the moto droid and X10 lock screen tho. Lockbot Pro did everything I wanted really.. it just f's up things.. like my wallpaper and my news widget.. honestly I dont even know how it manages to do that.. But the second I turn off Lockbot everything works fine... makes me sad. lol.
Been searching a while my own self and last night came across GOTO
Kicks ass so far. All the others mentioned earlier on my x10 would work but sooner or later that dam old SE lock screen would pop up as well. As soon as i see that I would toss and try a different one. Tried them all, this was the only one that did not slip back to the default app. So far................................
I saw this app a couple of weeks ago and it wasn't available for UK users. Checked today and it's now available for me.
Bought it and I'm giving it a try. Looks to be the best one I've tried so far.
I too bought WidgetLocker, but un-installed it within 5 minutes when I found that hitting the HOME button disables the lock screen - kind of pointless. Emailed the dev but no response yet. Did you find this?
On a side note....I was most surprised to see I'd been refunded the $0.99 when I un-installed the application. Very good service, just wondering what the extent of that refund is. If the guys un-install their apps 2 years down the line I wouldn't expect a refund...so it must be time specific?
Yeah, it's time specific. When you buy any app you get a refund if you un-install within 24 hours of your purchase.
Well there you go...love it when little things like this are actually thought out in full before distribution of an application or process. I was quite surprised I didn't have to email off to Google and submit a "claim" or something

Sorry for hijacking the post but...
The only bit I don't understand is how that stands legally. As a UK citizen I have, by law, 14days to return a product I deem not fit for purpose for any reason and therefore obtain a full refund.
I'm not saying that this would ever be the case for me, but I wonder what would happen if this was challenged and put to Google?
In any case +1 for Android as I didn't expect to see that $0.99 again!
