Massive Update for C Locker Replacement Lock Screen

Four-and-a-half months ago, we took a quick look at an app called C Locker. As one would assume by the name, C Locker’s main goal is to replace your lock screen with one featuring various convenient app shortcuts.

Since March, XDA Senior Member astoncheah hasn’t been idle. Rather, he’s made several key changes with C Locker in the interim. When I asked what the biggest changes were since the previous revision, astoncheah highlighted the following changes:

1. Weather– 2 weather providers, YahooWeather, WorldWeatherOnline can be selected and more detailed weather information including humidity, wind speed, visibility condition were added with up to 5 days forecast.
2. Live Wallpaper– home live wallpaper now is supported.
3. SMS/Missed Call– they can now be set to show/hide and can be set to lock the drag function to open the sms/call log shortcut on the locker,
4. App shortcuts– they have been increased to 7 custom shortcuts and can be set to show/hide on the locker. the shortcut icon can also be customized to you own ones.
5. Screen Timeout– 2 types of screen timeout can be set, the Locker screen timeout and the normal system screen timeout.
6. Lock/Unlock sound– able to select lock/unlock ringtone.
7. Other improvement and customization.

Overall, C Locker’s update brings a healthier featureset to an already capable lock screen replacement. To get started, make a quick trip over to the application thread. While you’re at it, don’t forget to leave feedback and suggestions in the thread if there’s something you’d like to see in future revisions. But those who need both lock screen shortcuts and pattern unlock functionality should make sure to check out the previously highlighted Lock Screen One Touch for All as well.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...
