C Locker Updated to Version 5, Brings Many Major Additions
We’ve talked quite a bit about XDA Senior Member astoncheah‘s “C” series of applications in the past. Bringing both Convenience and Customization, C Locker allows its users to launch applications and perform various tasks directly from their lock screens.
Since its initial release last March, C Locker has seen plenty of frequent and feature filled updates. The last we heard of the app was back in early February, when it received a substantial upgrade to version 4. This update brought many important features such as Tasker integration and improved lock screen notifications for devices running Android 4.3 or newer.
Now, version 5 has been released, and with it, come several new and important features. For starters, the new version allows for users to add multiple widgets to the lock screen, including one third party widget. And on the topic of widgets, the music widget now shows up automatically when music is playing.
In addition to the new features, this update also ups the polish on existing features by making the settings layout more user friendly, adding a notification count for incoming notifications, and enabling root users to hide the status and navigation bars.
Whether you’re a longtime C Locker user or you’ve never tried it before, head over to the application thread to get started.
