In my Nexus 4, I have the following screen lock options.

Face Unlock

How can I get options other than these for my lock screen? I prefer non-rooted ways to get this done.

(The option I prefer is what I have in my Jailbroken iPod Touch - AndroidLock XT that allows me to use an unlock pattern with the nine points to create the pattern, invisible. But I don't mind any other interesting options available for a screen lock on android)

  • What others even are there? Are you looking for something specific? – onik Jun 15 '13 at 11:34
  • The example I mentioned with my iPod touch, its slightly different from what comes with Nexus 4. Are you saying there aren't any options other than these? – Thomas Jun 15 '13 at 11:48
  • Not that I've ever heard of. I doubt that lock methods could even be added as individual apps, but custom ROMs might have the possibilities. – onik Jun 15 '13 at 12:18
  • I've never heard of such either -- but I think it could be possible, if the app registers as "device manager". Still, I don't know of any such app in this context. – Izzy Jun 15 '13 at 15:04
  • Another example I can think of is the lock screen for a windows phone, swiping and image upwards. I'm looking for any options other than the default available. – Thomas Jun 16 '13 at 15:44
  1. To get a lock screen similar to the one available for Windows Phone, try Lock Screen 7.
  2. WidgetLocker Lockscreen is a paid app which promises to give more lock screen options.
  3. Quick Launch Social Lockscreen is another option.
  4. Then there's Active lockscreen.
  5. Holo Locker Plus and its free version.
  • Feel free to add to this list if anybody finds more ways or options to change screen lock options. – Thomas Jun 16 '13 at 16:13
