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.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
