Generic Widget Lockscreen – Beta Testers Required

GWL is a new free Lockscreen that focuses on the comprehensive use of widgets on the lockscreen. Additionally, users can develop their own widget that will help unlock the screen and become the ‘GWL unlock button’. GWL also supports existing Android widgets.
