The lockscreen is a part of the OS that we see hundreds of times every day, whether we're using Android or iOS. The look of the lockscreen depends on the Android version, device manufacturer or ROM chef. In short, it differs for almost every user. Luckily enough, users can use third party alternatives that bring more features. One such application is Hi Locker, developed by XDA Senior Member thotran7989.

Facebook Tab in Sense 2.5
Meltwater has today released the first ever modification that allows Facebook to be added to Sense 2.5 as an individual tab. Although still in the early stages of development, you can now access your favourite, dangerously addictive social networking site just by sliding your finger.
This is my facebook tab, the project is a learning project, it will also have a supporting tutorial with full details of how it is built.
By it’s nature the intention is it is freely available and totally open.
Before people ask, no I can’t do comments, pokes, likes, notifications etc etc, I am cheating here and borrowing HTC function/pages and only changing what I have to, to obtain the function needed.
I’ve no intention or wish to re-write a facebook tab to directly use the facebook api (YET). If I can access/find what I need to do it easily I’ll fit it in, as I said an official Facebook tab is bound to appear and it simply is not worth the effort. Anything more than this would require writing an app to interface with the facebook api, doing something like that is a huge effort and it would be wasted the very second HTC release an official tab.
Hopefully it does enough to keep everyone happy. However, I am documenting the creation of the tab, so it’s up to you.
I’m planning to do at least one update to this to add the bits I couldn’t get going in time, plus to make it easier to configure via the settings instead of the registry.
If you’re willing to mess around with Manila files, and have MortScript installed on your device, this mod should really be worth a look. Have a peep into the original thread to give it a go.

Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them. We’ve given this title to such programs as Pushbullet, Light Flow, Helium, the AROMA File Manager, ROM Toolbox and Pocket Casts. But today we have an app that surpasses them all. Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
