GWL is a new free Lockscreen that focuses on the comprehensive use of widgets on the screen lock is designed so that everything you put in it are widgets and therefore supports 100% of existing widgets for Android.

In addition, following this philosophy incorporates a unique unlock, any knowledgeable person can develop their own widget that will help unlock the screen and to prove "GWL unlock button" is incorporated into the app.

Also I liberate a miniSDK for users with more limited knowledge you can design your own release buttons/widgets.

I need beta testers to try this app and help me improve it and polish it before uploading to the official market

Some screenshots of its current state, since I still have things to polish:

The top 8 screenshots that you provide will be include in the market
and the 2 best of them (1 tablet and 1 smartphone) which will place them in the head of the market (promotional graphic).

Beta6 Changelog:

-ADDED Economy mode (Battery saver)
-ADDED Russian translation, thanks to russiancrazy

-SOLVED No recipient email on report bug option

Beta5 Changelog:

ADDED -The system log (logcat) is added to the "Report a bug" button.
ADDED -Passive mode (Experimental).
ADDED -Option to show notification bar.
ADDED -Translation to PT / BR, thanks to Uhuhu.

CHANGED -The Force is not setted by default.

SOLVED -NoAd layer dont dissmis when Ad is visible.

Beta4 Changelog:

When you say '100%' of existing android Widgets, do you refer to sense Widgets as well?

If not using a menu from the list of widgets, you should appear seamless.
Anyway I mean all those in the market.

It is possible that some extreme launcher modifications as MIUI got some problems, so there is this phase of beta testing, to identify best and fix them.

I'd love to be a beta tester as well, I could even test your mini SDK if you like me too.
Let me know

nice one, will give it a shot.

does it support a "passive" mode (that is, non-interactive) for the widgets? that would be very neat for most widgets I can think of putting on my homescreen. I basically need status information like weather, unread messages, todos/agenda, and stuff like that. being able to make those widgets passive would allow me to get information from them without compromising the lockscreen's actual purpose which is preventing the phone from unwanted input.
