(You could find it using 'View more applications'/ the link in the app's settings page)
Thank you! :D
1.New / Updated Moto devices may not be supported
Moto disallows lock screen in their OS updates, so it would not work on moto devices after updates and new device like Droid 3. I have reported it to moto, but they did not agree to fix!
2. For device running Android 4.X, sometimes flashing (screen on then off again) may happen, try to enable 'Force Lock' in Lock Screen Settings to fix it.
3.It has been tested to work on Galaxy Nexus and Android Simulators (2.2,2.3, 4.0.2, 4.0.4, 4.1, 4.2 & 4.3)
However, the dev cannot guarantee that it could run / uninstall on all devices [coz I don't have all the devices].
If you encounter problem with you device, feel free to drop me an email!
### How to uninstall? ###
Locking Screen in Android requires the user of device administration function, you must deactivate device administration *BEFORE* uninstall to avoid error!
To do this:
•Go to "Lock Screen Settings" (in launcher) -> "Remove Device Administrator"
Alternatively, you may do it via
•Go to Settings -> Location & security (or Security) -> Select device administrators -> Uncheck this app.
After that, uninstall it in Play Store, in case of error during uninstall in Play Store, do it at Settings->Apps->Lock Screen-->Uninstall
[To use other hardware keys to unlock your device, try 'Widget Locker' / 'No Lock' app (not developed by me)]
Are you tired of using power button for locking your device?
Don't you like all the app-widget on the market that stay in memory just to lock your device?
"Lock Screen" is a very small app with the simple job to lock your device and then immediately quit!
- Lock device with just one click (same as pressing power button)
- It is an app, not a widget, so it does not run as a service in the background, all it does is to lock the device and then quit, so nothing remains in memory!
- Possibility to remove "Uninstall icon" if you already know how to uninstall it (Only DONATE Version)
It works using Device Administrator of Android 2.2 and higher, so at the first start it will ask you to grant the access. After that you can create a shortcut on your home and lock your device by simply touching the icon.
Buy the donate versione to support developers, it's a little bit faster, has the ability to remove "uninstall icon", and you'll get updates earlier.
***** HOW TO UNINSTALL??
After activating this app if you want to uninstall it just use the "Lock Screen (uninstall)" icon
You will find it useful when:

# Android 4.4+
The ability to disable lockscreen widgets is built into Android now. Lockscreen Policy has reached EOL. Thanks for supporting Lockscreen Policy! I have made this app available for disabling the camera widget, but you can't get rid of the camera icon in the system bar.
# Android 4.3
Tested and working.
# Android 4.2.x
Known issue under 4.2.2 with widgets disabled:
With the clock hack disabled, the clock widget toggles between the bold hour clock and the non-bold hour clock every other unlock.
If your device is rooted, you can use the clock hack to get the device to consistently display the non-bold hour clock. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I had no control over this. This issue is fixed in Android 4.3.
Clock hack does NOT interfere Android system updates, OTA or otherwise. The hack performs a setting change to your 'user data' only, not to the actual system. The permission to perform this change is normally restricted, so root is required.
If you do not re-root your device after updating to Android 4.3, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you undo the clock hack before proceeding, or you will have no way of restoring the stock digital clock widget on your device.
Uncheck the application from the 'Device Administrator' list under 'Security' in your 'Settings' application. You can also do this directly from the app's left swipe in navigation menu by choosing 'Deactivate'.
1) Run application
2) Make selections, and press activate
3) In the 'Activate device administrator' screen, choose 'Activate'
4) Turn off undesired features using the toggle switches. Changes are made instantly. Make sure your lockscreen is enabled to see the results.
#Hide App Icon from Launcher
If you enable this feature, you can undo this by adding a desktop 'Shortcut' (identified as a 'Widget' on some Launcher) to reopen the app to revert.
#Clock Hack for Rooted devices:
For users running Google firmware, you can now disable the bold-hour lockscreen clock with 'Clock Hack', accessible via the action bar menu even with widgets disabled in the lockscreen.
To undo or revert this, simply rerun 'Clock Hack'. You will additionally have to manually remove the clock widget and readd the desired one for changes to take effect if your lockscreen widgets are on. Note that this setting persists even if you deactivate or uninstall this application. (Can take a couple of screen locks/unlocks to take effect)
There are several downsides to using this hack. You will also lose access to the same widget from your homescreen. This alternate clock also will not launch the alarm app on click, nor does it display your world clocks.
On Android 4.3, to restore the bold hour clock widget, you may need to manually readd the widget by first removing the non-bold hour fallback clock widget.
# Caveats when disabling widgets on Android 4.2
Enabling this will force the lockscreen to use a 'default fallback widget'. On Google builds, the default is the stock DeskClock digital clock widget (with bold-hour style). This behavior cannot be changed.
The bold hour clock only affects official Google builds, and is part of Google's proprietary firmware.
The rooted method implements the following method from XDA,
The music controls will still appear as a new page when active, even with the lockscreen policies in place.
I do not collect any personal information with this completely free application.
No permissions other than device administrator required.

With lock screen you don't need to wait for screen timeout. It helps to save the battery.
It is not a widget. It is a real application. That means you can put Lock Screen in any position of home screen, including dock area. I find it extremely convenient to put the Lock Screen in dock area as I can lock the screen with one hand.
Lock Screen is free from ads. If you like the app, kindly support the developer by buying Settings Kit from Google Play. Besides lock screen, Settings Kit give you more functions to make your phone a better device.

More from developer
- Simple and beautiful interface.
- Supports Celsius and Fahrenheit.
- Cool widgets! Try shortcuts on 4x1 widget! Or try 2x1 widget!
Why do our app need those permissions?
- Network communication: data need to be downloaded.
- Your location: in case you use geolocation.
- Phone calls: we need to read phone state so we can automatically update widgets after booting when detecting an Internet connection.
- System tools: change Wi-Fi state in case you use the switch available on widget 4x1.
