**how to report a bug or error**

just say what happened, how happened and what's your current settings. Include log cat and screenshot. Feel free to pm me if you don't want to post it here.

**translations**
if you want to translate to any new language or edit any language download this file: strings

directions:
1. don't delete the lines that are between <!-- and -->
example:
<!-- sms count -->
because this help me reading where it can have any error.

2. only translate the value of the string
example:
<string name="app_name">ubuntu lockscreen</string>
there you only have to edit what is between > and </string> in this example is ubuntu lockscreen.

3. editing string-array is the same
example:
<string-array name="action_entries">
<item>ubuntu stock</item>
<item>ubuntu green</item>
<item>ubuntu red</item>
<item>ubuntu white</item>
<item>ubuntu black</item>
<item>ubuntu blue</item>
<item>ubuntu random</item>
</string-array>

only translate what is between <item> and </item>

4. when you have finished translating email the translated file to: [email protected] the title for the mail will be: Ubuntu lockscreen translation. Also remember to include the language name.
Example:

To: [email protected]
from: [email protected]

title: Ubuntu lockscreen
message: Hello attached is the translation to spanish.

5. also keep in mind that when i have added new strings i will be contacting you so you can translate the new strings.

Very good! But when I power on my screen, I briefly see the stock lockscreen, then it switches to the Ubuntu one. If this was fixed, it would be much better. Also, the distance I have to swipe to unlock the screen is enormous, almost from one edge of the screen to the other.

Best

It should be enough to drag it to half of the screen, it should go to the final. Its just as Ubuntu touch is, but explain me better and I could see what I can do. Its almost impossible to be faster than the stock lockscreen since android launch that one first, then mine receive the call to open.

Runs decent on my phone. Only annoyance I see is the red line to the left that appears randomly and the dark purple line that appears when you scroll to the left. It's mildly annoying but very well done. Reminds me of my laptop :)

I will need some screenshots, your setting and device info. Are you running custom ROM? Custom theme?

Looks like it's from my theme actually, but as you can see, it gets pretty bad. Running AreaROM V 1.1 and the custom red theme.

I could add a fake layer to the left and prevent it from scrolling there, that way it will not make that red things (that's because its at the beginning and you can't scroll it any more) let me try it PM you email I would send you the test app and if its working then it will be fixed by next update.

Keep it coming guys this is the kind of input I need.

    Some cherry picks about incoming update. Many bug fixed, now you will have an option to let the app lock your device while a call is in progress, password reduced to 4 characters, overall improvement for the app. You guys wanted shortcuts? well you have them, but now you can have them all around your device! I will let the screenshots talk.
