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.
