Is there some way to change the "sweep glass" idle screen (screen you see when the phone comes back from turning off screen)?

I like the "sweep glass" screen, but have seen some others. Eg. Screen similar to the "phone call" screen - two options (answer, reject) that need to be swiped to either side.

Aside: idea of puzzle pieces for messages, emails, etc is brilliant!


I've been using WidgetLocker (AppBrain). Its very customizable and has worked like a charm for me.

  • Not willing to pay for apps just yet. Gotta figure out the stuff I have first. Plus there's so many free apps... – cofiem Sep 16 '10 at 23:08

    @cofiem Skip a coffee break at Starbucks and buy yourself a couple of apps. Developers need the support so they can make more awesome apps for everyone. Plus, there is a 24 hour return period so you can get your money back if you do not like the app (unlike Apple where all purchases are final). – Bryan Denny Sep 20 '10 at 14:46
  • @Bryan Denny This article sums up my feelings pretty well. I haven't yet explored everything on the phone, and don't yet feel like I want to go buy things. fury.com/2010/09/… – cofiem Sep 23 '10 at 23:35

There's flyscreen, which lets you put widgets and such on your lock screen. (App brain link)

  • I'll give it a go. – cofiem Sep 16 '10 at 23:07
