Pass the Time Playing Mini-Games on Your Lock Screen with Joy Locker

Yes, there are definitely ways to spice up your Android lock screen, especially when you’re right here on the XDA forums. Mods that emulate lock screens of other devices? Check. Tutorial to teach you how to blur the lock screen? Check. Change your lock screen settings with an Xposed module? Check.

But what about playing mini-games on your lock screen? It’s definitely not something that we see very often, but if this sounds like something you’ll want to try out, especially on long, daily commutes with a lot of time to waste, check out Joy Locker.

Developer by XDA Forum Member ahnwook123, Joy Locker is a lock screen replacement app that has a comprehensive catalog of mini games that you can play right on your lock screen. By swiping from either the left or right of the lock screen, you’ll be able to access a range of shortcuts, including:

  • Settings quick toggles (i.e. WiFi, mobile data, synchronization, brightness, sound)
  • Mini-games market
  • App shortcuts
  • News, weather, sports, and Youtube
  • Google search

On top of all this, there are also additional customization options that let you perform tasks like toggle vibration and sound when unlocking, disable your system lock screen to avoid any clashes, and set a password or pin number, among others.

Joy Locker is compatible with any device running Android 2.3 and newer, free, and ad-free. So if you’ve been looking for a unique and fun alternative to your current lock screen, check out the application thread for more information and download.
