Change the Look of Your Lock Screen with SlideLock

Every OEM brings a different method of unlocking the screen. For example, Sony’s style is different from the one by HTC. Luckily, it’s Android and all of this customization can be applied at the source code level, with Xposed modules, or using external applications.

If you are not happy with your current lock screen style, you should definitely check an application made by XDA Forum Member Productigeeky. It’s a simple and good looking default lock screen replacement. To unlock the screen, you need to swipe the screen to the right. Swiping to the left launches the camera app, so you can easily make a photo of important and interesting moments of your life. SlideLock also handles the notifications. And by swiping the notifications, you can open or dismiss the message you get. There is even an option to preview a notification, just like with ActiveNotifications, where the screen lights up for a second giving you time to check what’s new. This application doesn’t offer many features or unnecessary graphical additions. The goal is to keep the screen nice and minimalist.

You can get the SlideLock app, by visiting the original thread. If you are looking for a stock lock screen replacement, you should give it a try.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
