WidgetLocker Updated In Android Market – Introduces Ice Cream Sandwich Style Lockscreen


If you’re thinking your Android device could use a little more Ice Cream Sandwich, I’m right there with ya. Thankfully, WidgetLocker was updated in the Android Market to version 2.2.1. Along with the usual bugfixes came the addition of an Android 4.0 style lockscreen, giving that finishing touch to whatever ICS theme you may currently be running.

Alright, perhaps Honeycomb or Sense is more you’re style? WidgetLocker features custom lockscreens from all your favorite UI’s — even if they only thing you liked about them was their lockscreens. The WL lockscreen is fully customizable as well, giving you the ability to add widgets, resize them or mix and match sliders from the different Android UI’s.

Must-have, bees-knees, constantly updated — these are all words that come to mind when I think about WidgetLocker. Whether you’re using a Android phone or tablet, you can download WidgetLocker right now from the Android Market for a measly $3.

  1. I guess some people are have problems updating in the Amazon App Store. Hopefully they fix the issue soon. The Dev is on the site offering licenses to the people having problems though, so that’s cool

    1. Seriously, the developer has always been super helpful about the app. I received the very first version waaaay back in the day for review and I loved it so much, I paid for it because of the constant updates.

      1. Thanks for that comment Chris. I only had a passing interest in this when I first saw it, but any dev who goes out of his way for constant updates, etc deserves my 3 clams. Bought.

        1. Did the same thing, passed on this a couple times now. But after seeing your high praises Chris, I’ll give it a go.

    2. How do you talk to the developer? I went to his site, but had no contact info, and cannot see how to contact him.

      *** Update*** OK by going to the Android Market on my phone instead of the website or Amazon Market and looking up Widget Locket it allows you to e-mail the developer from there. ***

  2. I’ve been avoiding anything that makes my phone look like ICS. I want to enjoy the features on my Galaxy Nexus for the first time :)

    1. I’ve said the same thing…i do not want anything ICS on my DX for the mere fact i want the full ‘wow’ when i get the GN!

  3. I love this app. So glad they added the ICS lockscreen.

  4. I’ve been using this app for a while now and I love it! The ICS lockscreen is a great addition to it’s seemingly infinite options!

  5. I bought this from the Amazon market a while back, any idea when I get the update?

    1. It just updated! Check! :D

      1. I skipped the middle man and went right to the source! Developer responds quickly and has a great product.

  6. I purchased this when the D.Inc first came out and haven’t stopped using it since. Even after I smashed my phone and am now on the DX. Love the updates and how smooth this app runs.

  7. I just updated through amazon. Go and get it!

  8. Nevermind. Keeps rebooting my Droid incredible now. Disabled for the meantime.

  9. Waiting for the Amazon Appstore version (that I got for free) to be updated. Probably in about 2-3 weeks.

  10. my galaxy s2 stayed awake the whole night, screen off, after installing this.
    also RAM usage has doubled
    anybody else notice this?

  11. I wish there was a way to disable long-press Back & Kill just for WidgetLocker in Cyanogenmod. Not that I know if that’s even possible or even an inkling on how to do it, but I’d like to see that.

  12. Just got this. Thanks for the heads up guys!
