Honeycomb Lockscreen for Android 2.3

Do you like the Honeycomb lockscreen, but only have a tablet that will run Gingerbread, or a smartphone that runs the same? Well gee, don’t be down! Turn that frown upside down!

XDA member Drakknar has designed a pretty fantastic lookalike Honeycomb lockscreen for Gingerbread. Not only does it look great as a concept design, works in both portrait for smartphones and landscape for tablets and has the ability to be unlocked with one hand, it also has all of your most important information displayed for you the second you turn your screen back on. Including missed calls, new messages, new emails, and your current battery percentage. It also looks like a music player is integrated underneath the clock, for even more flexibility.

[CONCEPT] Honeycomb-like lockscreen for Android 2.3

Hey guys,
I have designed a new honeycomb-like lockscreen (optimized for tablets in landscape mode and for smartphones – one handed usage in portrait mode), and I’d like to gather some feedback from you 

If most people will like it and will find this lockscreen useful, I’ll submit my work to the CM team so that it will be eventually merged into CMnext.

At the moment it’s just a mockup, however, its creator is hoping to have it integrated into “CMnext”, and plans to submit it to the Cyanogen Mod team if it is sought after enough. So if you like it, head on over to the original thread and show your support.

A Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services

With the launch of Apple Music, music streaming services have recently gained a lot of consumer interest, and as usual, Apple's foray into the market has caused disruption, as competitors scramble to introduce new features and modify their pricing structures in order to better compete, and as fresh users new to the market continue to evaluate and decide which service would suit them the best.   While many people are quick to denounce all streaming services as being a variable of...
