Lock Menu is a replacement lock screen that gives you the ability to launch applications and shortcuts directly from your lock screen. Lock Menu gives you the ability to customize 7 individual sliders so you can build a lock screen that fits your needs.
Launch an application, direct text, or direct dial all from your lock screen.
No need to unlock your phone and navigate to your Home app, just to launch another application. Lock Menu allows you to access the tasks you perform regularly on the first screen that appears.

Notes on user feedback:
- Please provide feedback and bugs to
firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond ASAP. Also goto

- Regarding ads We are actively implementing in-app billing. I wish I could give you a firm date on rollout. My development team is all college students and they are caught up in midterms. Also, Googles documentation is not great for this new service and we are working our way through it.
The ad free version (LockMenu Pro) will also provide two extra sliders.
- Updates and Testing Since LockMenu controls access to your phone we must test extensively. We have 6 different models of android phones we test on before releasing the code to a test group. Our extensive testing slows down adding new features. If we were implementing a game, a mistake would not be as critical, we are controlling your phone so a mistake is more then annoying.
- Quirky behavior Every type of android phone is slightly different. Changes we make may work differently on different types of phone (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S vs. Droid 2 vs. any HTC phone). We currently test on 6 different phones prior to releasing to a small set of users for testing. Even with all this testing, there are some quirky behaviors (like the normal android unlock slider periodically coming up) that we cannot completely fix. We have to fool android into letting us do what we do.
- Performance - We are constantly looking at ways to improve the performance of the LockMenu application. For HTC users please see the HTC Phones discussion on the support page (
www.lockmenu.com/support). One use of the Lockmenu Background service is to prepare the screen for display of the LockMenu as the phone is going to sleep. This eliminates having to generate the screen when the phone wakes up. We will continue to look at ways to improve the apps performance and welcome any suggestions.
- Security (Pin, password, Pattern)- If you use Android s unlock security (e.g. PIN/Password/Pattern) please see our FAQ at
http://lockmenu.com/faq. While LockMenu works with Android s unlock security (works the best with Pattern), it s not as clean as we would like...we find this very frustrating but its due to Androids security implementation.
