I dunno if this is pretty well-known or not, I do see a few threads in the Galaxy S II section, but I figured I'd let more people know since I just randomly found this on the market.

For those looking for a replacement to their stock lockscreen(and those craving the Honeycomb Lockscreen), SunPengfei brings us Ripple Lock on the Android Market!

https://market.android.com/details?i...ockScreen_free

There's a bit of customization that can be done and so far everything's worked pretty well for me. You can change the font color, style, and size. There's the ability to have app shortcuts as well.

The free version does sport an ad at the top, but there is a paid version you can buy. I'll stick to the free version myself, just waiting until the quality is a little better, but who knows, I might just purchase it anyways. It's only a buck and some change.

I think it's a great compliment to any honeycomb theme out there.

P.S. Would this be better in Themes? I dunno.

Hmm... seems interesting I'll try it out

I have to say it is quite impressive and fast-ish on the Wildfire :]

Yeah I thought about that, I've been all over my phone messing with Go Launcher and stuff, so I can't give a good reading, but I'll probably charge to full later and I'll take a look.

If anybody else decides to try it out, let us know!

I had it for a week or so, and noticed it unreliable too (2.2.2)

Its pretty, and more convenient to "unlock" being able to drag the circle any-which-way you want... but meh.

Doing ok for me so far, but I'm hoping for updates to make it more reliable as well. I did read a few comments with some gripes, but I think it's got potential.

What ended up happening with it for you guys? Was it that 'double lock' thing?

The circle would get "stuck". Had to cycle the lockscreen (via power button) a few times to get it to reset and work. Also found it sluggish at times.

Overall, I thought it was good, if those problems were not there.. but at the end of the day, if its eating even a moment of extra battery, its simply not worth it for me.
