I've used GoLocker and Widget Locker. Widget Locker is 10x better, more smooth and it almost literally replaces the new lockscreen. it has about 10 built in lock themes that are pretty standard, including Ice Cream Sandwhich, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb.

I definitely recommend it's purchase if you're looking for a new lockscreen. It's also super-customizable.

Sometimes you do still have that delay when it switches to the lockscreen, but it's not nearly as bad as Go Locker. usually the lagged lockscreen happens if you turn the screen off then turn it on right away. If you turn the screen off and wait a couple seconds, it grabs the Widget Locker screen completely when you turn it back on.

And if you have root access you can enable root helper which basically makes it so there is no lag, Definetly worth it in my opinion.

I never knew this. Just goes to show you how much I sit down and explore the application settings.

Thanks! I didn't know this either. I had stopped using WL because of the lag. Will test drive it again!
