MinimalLock is simple concept. It has no buttons or sliders, using solely gestures to handle your music controls, sms and call notifications and of course unlocking your phone.

It can display sms or call notification in the form of a contact picture as depicted above. When a notification is tapped it can open directly to the sms thread, show a quick preview or simply dismiss it.

It also has music controls which supports a variety of music players including PowerAmp, DoubleTwist, Winamp, PlayerPro, Google Play Music, Amazon MP3, MIUI, Apollo and many more.

Feature filled and minimalistic. Simple.
Free or Pro - Please leave a review if you like the app

If anyone has any feature requests or ideas I will be happy to look into implementing them if possible.

Feedback is greatly appreciated. Screens attached. Enjoy
HOME BUTTON does unlock the screen as many have pointed out however there is no easy way around this. I am looking into it but I'm not sure if I want to implement what is essentially a hack to prevent this. My advice to you for now is simple.. Don't press the home button

Nice work!! The lockscreen is looking good actually. I could see my battery status, time and operator name. Very nice. Love it.

Few UI improvements required,
1. Need to have help screen text.(Even I don't know how to use this. Please provide some more info regarding how to use gesture)
2. The settings screen could be improved more.
3. Could provide some option to select the features to be displayed in lock screen.

This app collides with native lock screen. Need some focus over there.

Appreciate your work

This is simply beautiful, but you might want to work on how it the music data is pulled?

On my Sony Xperia S (not necessarily sure whether or not this is related to my ROM or not) using the stock (Sony) music player, it'll come up as "Null - Null" for all my songs...

Apart from this, it's an absolute beauty to use...

Have yet to test missed calls though, but messages work perfectly.

Nice work mate. Need to work over few issues. But it's perfect looking lock screen. Back button kills lock screen. Even if I unlock the system lock is still showing.

I'll see what I can do, the issue with this is theres no official way to pull music info so it depends on the player to broadcast an intent to say if a track is playing or has changed,, I'll see if I can find one for the Sony music player.. Calls in now fixed along with a few others, I'll upload a new release later on today once I've had time to test it.

By system lock are you referring to a pin/pattern or just the normal slider? And back button does, I thought I had fixed that I'll do it for the next release.

Appreciate the feedback guys keep it coming

Great app. It works great and looks real good except for one thing. It does not replace my normal sense lockscreen, so I have to unlock twice. That's for the latest version, the first one does it. I'm on an unrooted HTC DHD, on gingerbread. Keep up the good work.
