Minimal LockScreenLite Keeps Your Lock Screen to a Minimum and Feature Packed

There are several key apps that define our ability to do more on our Android devices without having to interact with them too much. One of the most crucial ones (for security purposes) is the lock screen. There are a multitude of lock screen variants out there, most of which allow you to unlock your screen, launch applications, see notifications, and so on. However, the one thing that is somewhat cumbersome is the fact that many of these are simply too loaded with widgets, icons, scrolling bars, and more. If you happen to not like your current lock screen and are looking for something a little simpler, then you should take a look at what XDA Forum Member crazyfool_1 prepared.

Minimal LockscreenLite is a fast and clean lock screen replacement application that retains the functionality of many of its predecessors without actually sacrificing the beauty of your wallpaper by adding things on top. This lock screen replacement app is loaded with features that only show up on demand such as missed call and SMS notifications, the ability to control your music player (regardless of whichever one this is), and best of all, it can be skinned. The text present on the screen can be kept to a minimum and the dev has promised that he will be adding support to change the color and modify the font in the next upcoming versions.

Keep in mind that this is still in beta phase, and the dev is looking for feedback. Please leave some behind on the thread if you happen to try this out.

MinimalLock is simple concept. It has no buttons or sliders, using solely gestures to handle your music controls, sms and call notifications and of course unlocking your phone.

You can find more information in the original thread.

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...
