When people have an Android phone or an iPhone, they just love locking their screens with widgets and news feeds! A custom lock screen is actually quite helpful. Here are some of the best lock screen apps for your Android phone.

Best Screen Lock Apps for Android

LockBot

The LockBot is a lock screen. It can be customized and even be downloaded from the Theme Gallery. It is not the most creative app in the world, but it has a unique feature. Every time the phone is turned on, the user is greeted with a new un-locker. No other app displays this feature and therefore it is widely appreciated.

Widget Locker

This screen locker app has a good reputation due to its versatility. It has a lock screen customization tool that provides lot of options. In other words, Widget Locker turns the lock screen into another page of apps. That’s not much of a problem if you do not want many apps. This is because this app is not mandatory.

Even good apps and screen lock apps are subjected to poor quality graphics at times. This app has all the shiny colors that you can ever expect. The unlocking method is a bit odd but also unique at the same time. The slider is swiped in an arc. With this app, there is unlimited fun. Apps, sliders, shortcuts and widgets- almost everything is accessible through this screen lock. Although the number of shortcuts is limited to three, but this is not much of a problem.
