Not too long ago, we published an article on an Android type of locker for WM. XDA member APBilbo just updated ThrottleLock to version 0.9, but aside from the fact that it has tweaks and improvements for speed, this one in particular adds to new functions, neither of which you will find in any other locker app. The first one is that it allows the user to "peek" at the home screen, while disabling the touchscreen.
