« LockerPro Lockscreen for Android Puts App Notifications Right On Your Lock Screen », Lifehacker (December 2012)
« LockerPro is the nicest Android lock screen replacement I've come across », PhoneDog (December 2012)
« LockerPro Lockscreen is a great app that implements notifications really elegantly », Redmond Pie (December 2012)
Try the smartest lock screen for Android !
LockerPro allows you to check your notifications without unlocking your device.
LockerPro monitors notifications coming from any app on your device, and displays them as banners on your lock screen. You can easily swipe them away by swiping them to the left, or launch the notification by swiping to the right.
LockerPro also provides an app launch panel and a widget panel. Simply swipe the screen from the left to access the app launch panel, and from the right to access the widget panel.
Google+ beta community : https://plus.google.com/communities/114726077366703351611
Support page : http://getsatisfaction.com/productigeeky
Checking notifications from third party apps requires the activation of the LockerPro accessibility service. Status bar notifications must be enabled in the monitored apps for LockerPro to be able to process them.
Samsung users - if you have the talking issue - please refer to FAQ below
The app is designed for Android 4.2 lock screen but works well on Android 4.0/4.1 with WidgetLocker app installed.
Please read FAQ and Installation guide before posting a review:
Bulitin Clock – Android 4.2 styled clock, date and next alarm appears above the notifications list.
Highly customizable – You can change almost anything so it will look exactly as you want – clock size, notification size, text color, background, opacity and many more with an easy to use Widget appearance settings screen.
Full notification content (Android 4.1+) – Displays full content from expanded notifications, such as SMS sender name, full email body, WhatsApp conversations, etc…
Persistent Notifications – Allows showing persistent notifications from various apps - such as weather information, calendar events, Any.DO tasks and more above the notifications list.
Multiple appearance presets – You can set different appearance settings when the widget is collapsed, expanded or placed on home screen.
Custom app actions (Android 4.1+) – Reply missed call with SMS, archive Gmail message, share captured pictures and many more actions are available from expanded notification content that provided by the apps and appears as action buttons on the notification action bar when clicking on notification icon.
The app need an accessibility/notifications service to be active, so it can capture device incoming notifications. Therefore you’ll need to turn on NiLS service on Android Accessibility/Notifications Services.
Run the app and follow instructions:
1. Click "Service" and then enable NiLS accessibility/notifications service.
2. Click "Widget" and follow instructions how to add NiLS to your lock screen.
3. After the widget is placed - click "Widget" to customize appearance.
If you don’t have Android 4.2 you’ll have to use WidgetLocker lock screen replacement app (paid app unaffiliated with Roymam). See WidgetLocker app description to learn how to use it.

DashClock is a replacement lock screen clock widget for Android 4.2+ phones and tablets. It also exposes additional status items called extensions. The widget comes bundled with extensions that give you instant access to:
• Your current local weather
• Missed calls and unread text messages
• Your next calendar appointment
• Unread Gmail inbox or priority inbox conversations
• Your next scheduled alarm
To add the widget to your Android 4.2 device's lock screen, first make sure that "Enable widgets" is turned on in your security settings. Then, simply swipe to the left-most page of your lock screen and touch the "+" icon. Finally, select "DashClock" to customize and add the widget. You can make this the primary lock screen widget, replacing the default clock, by first touching-and-holding it and then dragging it horizontally to the very rightmost position.
Developers: DashClock is extensible! Visit the open source project at http://code.google.com/p/dashclock to learn more or just check out the source.

Zooper Widget has been built from ground up with battery in mind; nothing will be done while your phone sleeps, no weather will be updated if you have no weather information on screen, and no location will be updated if you do not ask it to.
Zooper Widget does not use much memory when it's running - even with 10 widgets on your screen it won't exceed more than 10 megabytes. However, during configuration RAM usage can climb up to 25mb. This is normal and the space will be released shortly after config is closed. If you're using Bitmaps, due to the heavy caching, usage will be higher.

Sparky Lock Screen - FAQ
>Why do I experience a delay sometimes before the lock screen appears?
Android OS imposes a 5 second delay to launch a screen from a background service after pressing HOME key.
So if you press HOME and immediately turns off the screen and then turn it on before the 5 seconds expires there will be a delay before launching the lock screen. This is a rare situation and the only scenario where there is a delay.
>I want more themes, is it possible?
Sure, we are working on many new themes and features. Please suggest new themes on email@example.com.
- Music control
- Customizable shortcuts (camera/phone/SMS)
- includes missed call and sms notifications
- Choose between left or right slider
- Toggle ringer ON/OFF
- with changeable unlock text
- Option to change battery color when charging
- 31 unlock sounds
- New Charing Animation
About the music control, if you encounter any compatible issue with your phone(for example, failing to control or show the music information) please contact us and provide the information about your phone model, the music player you using etc. It will be helpful to use to resolve the issue. Thanks!

# 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.

This launcher is similar to old ADW Launcher Free before its major update in October 2012.
This application is not currently in active development. If you see a bug, you can file it to the project's GitHub.
**Passwords set in this application are not designed to be secure. It is recommended that you do not set your common password in this application.
Source code: https://github.com/chislon/LegacyLauncher
For help, take a look at the built-in 'Guide'.
Before you update, it is recommended that you back up your settings: 'Launcher Setup->More->Backup and Restore', choose 'Backup settings' and 'Backup desktop icon placement'.
See the ADW Guide for more help:
Key features of ADW Launcher Free present in Legacy Launcher:
* customizable number of desktop home screens
* customizable drag&drop action buttons
* ADW themes (can be a bad idea on low RAM devices, but looks are important too)
(See the webpage for a more complete list of features. Note that some features have been removed, such as the hidden dock bar.)
The original ADW Launcher was developed by Anderweb and a team of developers:
These permissions were retained from the original ADW source code and have not been significantly changed, and are standard for Launcher applications.
If your installed ADW Theme looks weird, make sure you have not selected 'Override Colors' in the drawer and application tray.
To have create the effect of hiding apps in the app tray, you can enable categories from the 'Launcher Settings'. Then open the app tray, and hit the 'Menu' button to bring up the category settings. Simply create one category with all the desired applications. Then you can return to 'Launcher Settings' to turn off the 'all apps' category.
If you would like to install a theme with a custom dock background, remember to unhide the dock background.
If you have an extra high resolution device, this launcher will not look optimized for your device. The original application was originally made for 800x480 screens and lower, so there is little I can do to make things work better for you since the graphical resources are raster image files.
* Samsung Galaxy S Infuse has a different data layout on some stock firmwares. As a result, backup/restore will fail. I cannot fix this as I do not have access to the device. If you know how to fix this, feel free to send me a patch.
When headphone is inserted, this widget can toggle your headset audio off, to have the sound come out of your built-in speaker or even connected bluetooth.
An indicator dot tells you if sound is going to come through the headphones when there's media sound playing.
Free with no ads
Branch of https://code.google.com/p/toggleheadset2/ for personal use, with bug fixes...
Removed call detection features and on-boot settings. Supports both headphones and headsets. Playing music to bluetooth when headphone/headset plugged in is now possible.
This app just tells Android to pretend as if the headphone is not plugged in even though it is.
Icon with Android asset studio + Tango icon theme + GIMP
If headphone/headset is plugged in with bluetooth A2DP attachment, the volume control might be either bluetooth media or the ordinary media audiostream. That's Android getting confused about where the music is actually being played, because this app pulls the rug from underneath it.
If you have a HTC device with a self-toggling headphone jack, the widget will be updating itself too much.
The way this app works results in conditional unpredictable behavior, particularly with phone calls. Hence, this app is alpha and will stay that way.
Should probably merge this into another app someday, but for now it's useful for various things...
HDMI not tested, don't have the equipment
* * *
A review indicates that this allows the use of the integrated speakers with 1seg (ワンセグ) on the KDDI HTC J One.
Free with no ads whatsoever, no need for internet access.
Root access required for Android 4.2 and up.
Choose a font scaling size between 55% and 145% (increments of 15%). The effect of this may be limited depending on your firmware. It is not recommended to choose a size larger than 130%.
For reference, the Android AOSP 'Huge' font size setting is 130%. Stock Android selectable settings are: 85% (tiny), 100% (normal), 115% (large), and 130% (huge).
Some manufacturers have removed this from their firmware because of limited system support. Examples of this include all implementations of HTC Sense 3.6 on the EVO 3D, Android 4.0 on the Samsung Galaxy Note.
If you happen to have a HTC phone, you may not notice a difference in your stock launcher and settings, because HTC broke this functionality in their some of their Android builds.
Compatible for Android 4.0+
Requested to make changes to system settings, nothing more.
For some applications to update the chat font size, you may need to close the application and run it again for changes to be applied.
On Android 4.2 and up, FontUp will try to obtain root access on first load, and will take longer to start than usual as a result.
Makes use of RootTools from http://code.google.com/p/roottools/

**This app has very limited functionality past Android 2.3 because of Google's changes to Android. The only option available for most users past Android 2.3 is the trigger that turns WiFi off when toggling on airplane mode.
Different devices will have different behavior, as I do not have the resources to test this workaround on every device. **
If you hate it when your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth get disabled by turning on airplane mode, here your fix!
Perfect for turning an old smartphone into a dedicated MP3 player or PDA. Just take out the SIM, use this app, and leave the phone in airplane mode.

Once the settings in this app have been applied you can safely remove this application - they are written to your system settings and are permanent until a factory reset.
May not work on all devices!
Some manufacturers have locked down some of these settings, rending this application useless in some cases. I have no way around this, nor can I tell which devices specifically with which firmwares do not support the functionality in this app, unfortunately.
Known not to work in Android 4.2 because Google has made airplane mode settings 'read-only' when accessing them from third-party apps.
# Permissions used
* write system settings - that's what this app does...
# How to use this app
Choose the options you want enabled or disabled in this application. Your changes will take place immediately.
You can view the changes in Android's settings application, typically under 'Wireless Settings'. Wireless settings can be launched directly from the bottom item in this application for your convenience.
Example Use Case 1:
Allow toggling of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when airplane mode is enabled, but still have airplane mode toggle Wi-Fi and Bluetooth off ->
on, on, on, on
Example Use Case 2:
Make Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggling independent of airplane mode ->
off, off, on, on
Example Use Case 3:
Don't let Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggle when airplane mode is enabled, and toggle them off when airplane mode is enabled ->
on, on, off, off
When launching wireless settings, your changes may not be visible right away. In this case, hit the 'Back' button on the device or kill the 'Settings' app with a task killer. Your changes will be reflected upon a new restart of the wireless settings task.
# What this does
When airplane mode is enabled, the default behavior is to disable the 'radios' on the device. That would include your cell radio, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
A good app to go with your backup Android device to reduce extend battery life.
Using hidden functionality built into Android, this application does one of two things:
1) Prevent airplane mode from toggling your Wi-Fi or Bluetooth radios.
(This also has the effect of allowing your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to stay on after reboots when airplane mode has been enabled.)
2) Allow Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to be toggled when airplane mode is enabled.
(No longer possible past Android 4.0)
# More Notes
Your settings should persist after you reboot your device. Feel free to remove this application to free up some space when you are done with it.
The default manufacturer setting varies depending on the device. As a result, this app may not prove to be of use to every device.
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, airplane mode, flight mode, system tool
This overrides the call button long-press action, such as Voice Dialer, with a task that has minimal overhead.
Should also work for bluetooth headsets.
Completely free with no ads.
1) Perform a long-press of the call button
2) In the 'Complete action using' dialog, check the 'Use by default for this action' checkbox, and select '! No Long-Press Call'
3) Your call long-press should now effectively do nothing.
Includes a long-press call button manager.
In technical terms, this overrides the intent action for 'VOICE_COMMAND'. If this intent is not triggered when you perform a long-press of the search button, this application does nothing for you.
This application is useless on the following devices:
* Other devices that do not broadcast the intent for 'VOICE_COMMAND'
* Devices without a call button
Used to clear default actions for Android 2.1 and below. Does nothing for Android 2.2 and up.
I had trouble getting this to work in the Android 3.x and 4.x emulators. The Android API documentation does not tell me that the intent would be disabled in those versions of Android, so I have elected to allow for these users to download this application even though it may be untested for their devices. Please report back to me if you find that it does not work on your device.
Tested for Android 1.6-2.3.
Voice dialer, long-press call
Once the app is installed, press the PIP button on your remote once. You will then be asked to complete the action using PIP to Notifications. You may choose 'Use by default' to always perform this action. If you do so, you will no longer have access to PIP even from the built-in TV app.
Tested on Sony Google TV NSZ-GS7 with Android 3.2. Not suitable for higher versions of Android. May or may not work on other Google TV devices.
Also takes over the PIP shortcut from the built-in TV app itself. To workaround this, this app adds a shortcut in your Launcher called 'PIP/TV' which opens PIP directly.

Reversing the changes:
To revert to original settings, go to Device Settings->Applications->PIP to Notifications, and clear defaults, or simply uninstall the application.
