Editors' Review

Go Locker lets you customize your lock screen to your heart's content with stylish themes, app shortcut icons and notifications, news, calendars, camera, email, and more. This app considerably improves the default lock screen on your device, making it not only more beautiful, but also more functional.

Pros

Powerful yet graceful: Go Locker manages to integrate app icons and notifications, to-do lists, emails, agenda, media players, and weather widgets into stylish themes that despite their sophistication remain smooth and fluid and don't tax your system or effect the battery.

Fantastic themes: Whether you want a minimalist theme that shows you only the clock or one that shows you everything from agenda reminders and app notifications to weather with live animation effects, there are so many great-looking themes available that it will be hard for you to choose one. Everything is available, from tab-based themes with fully customizable colors to cute themes for younger users.

Multiple security protection modes: Apart from pins, you can also unlock the screen with gestures or patterns which, although quick to perform, are hard for spies to crack. Keep in mind, though, that some themes may support only some security protections modes.

Cons

Security flaw: The current version suffers from a bug -- if you press the home page button to unlock the screen, it takes you directly to the home page instead of asking for a password. The developer promises to fix this in the next version.

Nagging ads: You will have to put up with constant home screen ads.

Best themes not free: The app's description may deceive you that all themes are readily available. However, most of the good ones cost a few bucks. Alternatively you can unlock them with GetJar coins, which you can collect by installing supported apps.

Bottom Line

Go Locker revamps your lock screen, making it much more appealing. If you're tired of your default Android lock screen, you should definitely grab this app. Don't forget the home screen security bug, though; if security is a big concern for you, wait until a new version is released.
