Latest C Locker Update Brings Notification Details, Improved UI

We first brought you news about XDA Senior Member astoncheah‘s C Locker app back in March of this year. At the time, we were pleased with how the replacement lock screen app put your most used shortcuts front and center. Some time after, we then took a look at its second incarnation, where it gained various new features such as a weather display and SMS/MMS info. The developer has been hard at work, and how he has released the third version of his C Locker app.

What’s new in this version? As can be seen in the image, there is an entirely new lock screen UI. Most notably, there is now a bottom bar notification, which shows your Gmail, SMS, and missed call notifications. In order to switch between categories, you simply swipe to the left or right. There are also new clock options, which can be swiped between on the lock screen itself. And for those who constantly find themselves flashing new ROMs, there is now a backup / restore feature, where all your settings are restored when the app is reinstalled.

All in all, this update brings quite a few new and useful features to the already great lock screen replacement. And now that your notifications are visible directly from the lock screen, C Locker will help save you even more time.

Make your way over to the application thread to get started.

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...
