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
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.

Privacy and security are two increasingly important factors in today's globalized world, and with the surge of internet spying by government agencies and third parties, wiretaps are an everyday thing that don't just concern James Bond anymore.

After all, with the huge user bases boasted by Whatsapp and the...
Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
