Looking for a Little Lock Screen Love in all the Right Places
Monday 13th of June 2011
Under most circumstances a simple theme can give you that much desired lock screen look you are after. Of course this method usually only applies to those of us that are rooted. The rest of the world will need to use a lock screen app like WidgetLocker or Lock Menu. Those seem to be some of the more popular applications. Although I have used both of these apps, I am personally a much simpler person and will spend entirely too much time changing things around in those apps.I came across developer SunPengfei just last night and knew I needed to share these apps with all of you. He currently has 2 lock screen variations available. The first is based on the Honeycomb lock screen, it is called Ripple Lock. There is a free version and a paid version available. The free version has ad support on your lock screen, the paid version does not. Take a look at the screens below to get a gander at it: The large circle gives off a water ripple effect as you slide the unlock icon out of the ring. To unlock the device just slide that unlock icon anywhere on the screen so that it exits the large

Couple noob questions....
Thursday 22nd of April 2010
I had a couple questions about the Android OS that I know will be simple for most, but I haven't found clear answers for (and a couple I haven't gotten to yet !!): The backup assistant I have seen mentioned...is it like using SPB Backup on a WM device in that it will save a mirror image of your device (PIM info, apps, configuration.....) or something different? I have downloaded a theme or two to see what they look like and I was wondering if creating a custom theme is as easy as changing the images found in a downloaded one and saving it to the Incredible (would love to make a Doctor Who theme), or if it needs to be rooted or something (If there is a self-skinning instructional post/thread that would be GREAT!!!)? Is it true the new OS (2.1 I think) allows the lock screen to use different gestured (AKA...side-to-side) to unlock, change ringer/mute function....? They are the questions I am dwelling on at the moment, I am sure I will think of more though!!! Thanks for now
