Lockscreen Gestures Come to Droid in Latest CyanogenMod Release Candidate

cm-lockscreen3-168x300

CyanogenMod has doen it again, bringing in some nifty functionality to the ROM for rooted phones that really sets it apart from the pack. CM6.1 RC5 is the latest for the Motorola Droid, and it brings along lockscreen gestures. This will allow you to assign and dictate gestures (much like gesture search) from the lockscreen to quickly pop open your favorite apps and services.

You can get it now for the Droid, but no word when it might reach other CM builds. We get the feeling it will, though.

    This is in the nightly builds for all platforms. It is in all RC builds that were built after 11/26 I think.

    According to the CM 6.1 changelog, lockscreen gestures are common to all of the CM 6.1 final builds

    it’s on the EVO, but doesn’t work… shows trails but doesn’t open any apps. very disappointing!

  • Nick

    I use this on CM6.1 RC3, great feature. I had to turn the sensitivity down to about 2 though.
