I have the landscape and portrait views working correctly now. If any would like to see how is is progressing just download the attached app. It is NOT a replacement lockscreen, it is just the proof of concept app. Many images have yet to be finished as I just ripped them from the OP pics. This app should work on any 2.3.3 based system. No this is not GB only its just i built the app using 2.3.3 specifications though the actual api is not used.
This a pre-beta of the lockscreen(not truly an alpha because it works for its intended purpose). The clock and music controls need to be worked out but I already have a plan of attack for that.
Go ahead try it out and tell me what you think needs resizing(redimensioning) and you device HDPI, MDPI, or LDPI. Caution LDPI users may fc as there is no assest for your devices.
I have designed a new honeycomb-like lockscreen (optimized for tablets in landscape mode and for smartphones - one handed usage in portrait mode), and I'd like to gather some feedback from you
This is not meant to be an exact copy of the original HC lockscreen: my goal is to offer a similar experience while also providing as much informations as possible and offering an option to use it fullscreen, without the statusbar.
1) the unlock boundary circle should.d be invisible until you touch the lock button.
2) on the phone version the semi circle needs to be abit smaller to make it easier to drag with one hand on the phone.
About point 1), once mad-murdock will start coding the lockscreen we'll definitely try to build such a feature, but we'll need to take into consideration multiple factors, including the amount of coding required and any performance impact.
About point 2), based on my tests I didn't had any trouble to unlock with one hand. I'll definitely double check this and I will change the semi circle radius if I'll find out any troubles during the drop to unlock phase.
