Just about every OEM has a unique lockscreen. It is a part of the gift that comes with all the customizations and skins on Android. However, what if you did not want a lockscreen but still wanted it? Yes, it does sound a little confusing, but it has happened with us. There have been times when we have wanted things to be locked but not under a special screen. To help this, one of the devs at XDA Forums has come up with a Transparent Lockscreen.
This is indeed a very interesting way of using lockscreen, where all the elements of the device are locked under a transparent sheet. You need a special gesture to unlock it. For now though, there are only four of them available. You simply have to disable your lockscreen on the device from within security to be able to use this transparent lockscreen, and it works fantastically well.
Some of the gestures available are:
“- Swipe Right : Swipe from left side to right side horizontally with any finger on lock screen
– Swipe Left : Swipe from right side to left side horizontally with any finger on lock screen
– Swipe Up : Swipe from down side to up side vertically with any finger on lock screen
– Swipe Down : Swipe from up side to down side vertically with any finger on lock screen”
You need to be running Android version 2.2+ to be able to use this app. You can download the app for free from the Play Store here
